Ronke Bewaji Shonde and the husband who killed her in domestic violence

This is Ronke Bewaji Shonde.she  was allegedly killed in a domestic violence as she was beaten to death by her husband this morning May 6th at their home at Tiemo Crescent off Awori street in Egbeda Lagos. According to a family friend, Ronke and her husband had a fight in the early hours of this morning at their home while their kids were sleeping. One neighbour later said he heard the noise coming from their flat early this morning but didn't
think it was something horrific going on in the home.

Around 7am, the couple's nanny came to the house to resume work only to find the house locked and no one was opening the door. She tried to call her madam but her phone was switched off. She peeped through the window only to find the couple's 6 and 4 year old kids crying and saying they couldn't wake their mum up. By this time, neighbours had also gathered and they forcefully opened the door to find Ronke's lifeless body on the floor, blood gushing from her head.

The husband, Lekan Shonde, was nowhere to be found. Ronke's phone was also missing. He'd locked the kids with their dead mum in the house and took off with her phones.

Her body has since been deposited at the mortuary. She was in her mid-30s.

According to family friends, Ronke suffered domestic violence in her husband's hands for many years but refused to leave the marriage. Why do ladies refuse to leave their relationships when domestic violence is prevalent? And why do parents always encourage ladies to stay in their marriage despite the physical abuse? Its a terrible tradition especially amongst Africans.That old disgusting notion that "we don't divorce in our family" is old and dated.So its better to die than divorce right?
What does this disgusting father tell his kids now? So sad.
