Mother of 4 beaten to pulp by her husband after taking another wife (Photos)

Mrs Ronke Akinyemi, who lives at Raimi Street, Ahmadiyya, Ojokoro, Agbado-Ijaiye, Lagos State, has been allegedly battered by her husband and father of their 4 kids, Mr Olatunji Akinyemi at their home in Lagos.

According to sources, Mr Olatunji was said to have taken a new wife on July 4, 2021, and since then, he is alleged to have been subjecting his first wife to physical abuse. Mrs Ronke explained that the latest beating was because she asked her husband to help sponsor their first son after he got admission into school.

She said that she sells fruits, but due to an ailment she has been battling with for years, there is a limit to how much work she can do, hence, cannot handle her children’s schooling alone.

Mrs Ronke said her husband claims he cannot send the son to school but he has money to marry another wife.She said she and Mr Olatunji have been together for over 20 years but they got officially married in 2006.

Since then, she said she has been abused by him but it got worse after he took a second wife.After the latest beating, Mrs Ronke said her husband’s younger brother also attempted to beat her, so she reported to human rights activists and they gave her a letter to receive treatment at the Orile-Agege General hospital.

She explained that since then, his family have been fighting her and accusing her of trying to get their son arrested.
