The family of Mrs Rekhia Osakunni, late wife of Mr Sunday Osakunni popularly known as Ekwe has stated the need for the deceased killer(s) to be brought to book.
The deceased family argued that the death of Osakunni was “most brutal, and has brought great pain and sorrow to the entire family” adding that “the death has been confirmed to be due to strangulation by the doctor’s autopsy report, signed by Dr A N Awolola of Lagos University Teaching Hospital.
The statement read in part: “Following the controversial union of our daughter and Sunday Osakunni, (Stereoman), which we never supported, marred by wife battery, fights and other forms of abuse by her husband, we hold that Sunday Osakunni never loved our daughter, and therefore used her.
Meanwhile, Ekwe, who is currently being detained at State Criminal Investigative Department, SCID, Panti, was reported to have told detectives that he and Rekia had been having constant quarrels for a long time after the birth of their son. He was said to have told the police that he packed out of their house in Satellite Town, Lagos.
Ekwe was said to have told the police that since he separated from his wife, he had no contacts with her. In addition, Ekwe had in an interview with a national daily before the incident, said, ‘’I am not the first to have a child outside marriage. I don’t want to marry her, and she is trying to force me. I don’t want her in my life; she only torments me with her nagging. Whatever she told you is meant to rubbish my personality, but God knows which the truth is.’’
