A man, Afobaje Maiyegun, who allegedly battered his wife and was filmed in a viral video boasting about the assault has been arrested by the police in Lagos.
Lagos Coordinator of Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT), Mrs Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said that he has been charged to court on Friday
Vivour-Adeniyi said that Maiyegun dared his bleeding wife to call police on him, saying he was “waiting for her police”.
She said a team of DSVRT reached out to ACP Gbolahan Odugbemi, Area Commander, Area J Police Station, who arrested Maiyegun.
It was gathered that this was not the first time Maiyegun would beat his wife.
It was on this note, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu reminded residents of the state’s zero-tolerance for sexual and gender-based violence, warning that perpetrators will face the full weight of the law.
