Man who battered wife to be arraigned Friday


A man, Afobaje Maiyegun, who allegedly battered his wife and was filmed in a viral video boasting about the assault has been arrested by the police in Lagos.

Lagos Coordinator of Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT), Mrs Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said he will be charged to court on Friday.

Vivour-Adeniyi said on Thursday that Maiyegun dared his bleeding wife to call police on him, saying he was “waiting for her police”.

She said a team of DSVRT reached out to ACP Gbolahan  Odugbemi, Area Commander, Area J Police Station, who arrested Maiyegun.

It was gathered that this was not the first time Maiyegun would beat his wife.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday reminded residents of the state’s zero tolerance for sexual and gender-based violence, warning that perpetrators will face the full weight of the law
