I had once packed out of his house after we had our first born when he almost killed me over trivial issues. He would beat me black and blue. But his parents came to plead with me to return to his house.
“When I returned, I noticed positive change in him for a while, but when I got pregnant of our 2nd baby, he began to beat me again. I remained there enduring him.”
Monisola said when she could not endure the battery anymore she finally left the house with her children about a year ago and started to live alone somewhere in the community. She added that after a while Adeola came to tell her he was going to take custody of their children which she agreed.
“Sometimes he would bring our children to me on weekends and take them back Sunday evenings. At times, I would meet him inside my room sleeping and when I ask why he would say he did not want the children to stay in the room a alone while I was yet to return from work.
“On Tuesday night April 14, 2020, I was inside the room watching film around 9pm when he came around. I was shocked to see him. He said he wanted to discuss an issue and I said it was already late. Moreover, the government just declared curfew in the state over Covid-19 in which there is restriction of movement as from 7pm. He said he was going to sleep in my place and I said no.
“When I said no, his countenance fearfully changed. He said he was going to killed me. I said I secured this accommodation by myself to avoid your problems. This is how he started to beat me again. He hit me severally on my head with 9 inches concrete block.
“As people around were trying to rescue and rush me to hospital, he came out again from nowhere with cutlass and started to hit me. He also beat those who were trying to rescue me with the flat side of the cutlass.” She explained.

She said it was their mother who came to call her from her own house to come and rescue her sister. She said she was surprised when her sister’s husband did not want to recognize anybody as he assaulted all of them.
“He also pursued my mother with class, but for God who saved her”, Omolabake said.
