A woman who is simply identified as Nike has been reportedly killed by her husband in a gruesome manner right in their home in Abuja.
The woman, Nike, was said to be a mother of two and also a world bank staff at the Asokoro, Abuja Office of the bank. She was brutally knocked down by her husband’ s car when he was reversing to storm out of the compound after a heated argument
The husband whose name is given as Makanjuola Ayedun is reportedly known to be abusive towards his deceased wife. Some sources say he used to beat his wife, Nike. But nobody expected it to get to the stage of killing her.
According to reports, on Friday, May 14, 2021, around 10 pm, at their Gwagwalada home in Abuja, Ayedun reportedly ran over his wife with his car in anger over a money issue for their son’ s birthday.
Some sources said that the wife had saved some money in a safe box for their son’ s upcoming birthday. She wanted to throw a big birthday party for their son. But unknowingly to her, her husband had already tampered with the box and took all the money. When she confronted him, he became combative again as usual.
Later, he decided to leave the house at that dead hour of the night. That was when the wife went to the gate to block him from driving out. Unfortunately, he ran the car over her in the process. He reportedly warned her to move away but she refused.
Meanwhile, he tried to flee from the scene having realized that he had killed his wife, but it was too late by then because the incident already attracted other neighbors. He then reportedly blamed what happened on breaker failure. He claimed it was an accident.
