According to Silas, the defendant had beaten his wife Esther, to death on the said day after an argument ensued between them.

The offence, however, contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, which prescribes a death sentence for convict.

Mr O.O. Olatunji, the Chief Magistrate, ordered the remand of the defendant at the Ikoyi Custodial Centre pending receipt of advice.
