Mrs Ronke Shonde was found dead at her home in Egbeda on the morning of May 6, 2016.
The family nanny had arrived to prepare the children for school and found the house locked. Looking through the window, she found Ronke’s children crying because they couldn’t get their mummy to wake up.

He had accused her of sleeping with one Kayode, the General Manager of a publishing company, before her death.
