A man, identified only as Gbenro, has been accused of strangling his wife, Wayesola, to death in her sleep.
Their daughter, Fayoke, who saw everything, narrated how her father killed her mother.
The incident was said to have occurred in the early hours of the morning at Salvation Army Street, Odoj?mu, Ondo, Akure.
Fayoke stated that she saw her dad strangling her mother when she got up to ease herself but couldn’t do anything because her father threatened to kill her, The Nation reports.
It was Fayoke’s horror cry that alerted neighbours, who arrived to find Wayesola had died.
Neighbours quickly locked the Gbeni indoors to stop him from escaping, then they called the deceased’s brother.
ASP Tee- Leo Ikoro, Ondo Police spokesman, said the matter has been transferred to the state CID for further investigation.
