Popular car dealer, Ikechukwu Ogbonna aka IVD, has been arrested over the death of his wife, Bimbo. The spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, says he has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Yaba on his Twitter page on Monday.
IVD has been accused of complicity in the death of his wife, Bimbo, following years of alleged domestic violence.
The marriage, however, was fraught with disagreement and alleged domestic violence.
At the climax of their clash, the couple separated and were said to have reunited recently.
However, on Saturday, October 15, there was a fire incident at their Lekki mansion, as Abimbola was caught in the inferno. She was rushed to a hospital, where she died.
The suspect had taken to his Instagram page to react to the death of his wife by posting a series of videos, alleging that the deceased had been violent to him and destroyed his property.
In one of the videos, the suspect was seen pointing at his bleeding head and saying “See what she did to me? She just hit me right now. This is me bleeding. I won’t take this.”
In another video, the suspect showed his damaged car while Abimbola was heard hurling insults at him in the background.
A post on his page partly read, “My greatest hurts will be at my funeral, everyone will be like, Bimbo was such a fantastic human, a clown, she’s that one person you had on your sos call, she had the biggest heart, very smart, she looked out for her family. Bobby yen yen yen, my corpse will wake up and shout ‘Shut up all of you and put me inside the ground let me be with the lord’.”
However, when our correspondent checked the suspect’s Instagram page on Monday, the posts had been deleted.
The deceased’s family, while demanding justice in a statement, said Ikenna was on the run.
