A Facebook user, Chukwudi Iwuchukwu shared the story, how Anthony was alleged to have killed his 6-months pregnant wife identified as Barrister Adaeze Ikpeama by beating her to coma and subsequently rushed to the hospital where she was admitted and removed her oxygen support until she died.
Grateful to be informed that the suspect, Anthony Ikpeama, m, who was alleged to have killed his wife on admission bed at Doyen Hospital Ajah, Lagos State has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba for proper investigation.
The suspect has not been released contrary to the rumour and falsehood making waves on the social media.
It’s a capital offense and the police will not grant him any administrative bail for whatever reason.
The matter is on and we will do justice to the case as expected.
