At home with Lekan Shonde’s in-laws, the Bewajis

Ronke Shonde-Bewaji

– As they meet over daughter’s burial

The relatives of Ronke Shonde-Bewaji who was allegedly killed by her husband, Lekan Shonde on Thursday, May 5, 2016, are still devastated about the death of their daughter.

A reliable source told that the entire Bewajis are yet to get to terms over the tragic occurrence as concerted efforts are being put in place to get to the root of the matter.

The source further disclosed to us that the Shondes are pleading with Bewaji family to resolve the issue in the interest of the two little children left behind by the deceased.

“Ronke’s family is yet to get over the incident. I learnt all the members of Bewaji meet almost every day about the matter, while Lekan Shonde’s relatives have also been pleading with Ronke’s family to settle the matter between the two families because of Ronke’s children who may suffer the outcome of the whole issue if their father eventually lands in prison or charged for murder.

“I learnt the man is still in police custody pending the time the police will conclude their investigations. But the way things are going, he will surely be charged to court soon because I don’t think Ronke’s family will soft pedal on the issue.”

However, visited Bewajis at their residence on 4, Ogunsiji Close, off Ogunmodede Street, Allen, Ikeja, Lagos, on Thursday, May 12, 2016, with a view to confirming the development concerning the matter, but our efforts were rebuffed as one of the family members who attended to us refused to comment on the issue.

“We’re very sorry, we can’t grant you any interview on that. In fact, we’re not even ready for that. Thank you.”

However, from all indications, there was a meeting going on when  we were in the family’s compound, confirming what our source earlier told us.
