Justice Josephine Oyefeso of the Lagos State High Court has sentenced Lekan Shonde to death for the murder of his wife Ronke.
In her ruling on Friday, Justice Oyefeso sentenced him to death by hanging after he was accused of killing Ronke in their Lagos home.
The accused, who has consistently denied committing the offence said he only slapped her.
Late Ronke had been accused by her husband of sleeping with one Kayode, the General Manager of a publishing company, before her death.
Lekan also allegedly locked up the corpse of his spouse, with his children inside their home, before she was discovered hours later by their housekeeper.
He committed the offence in May 2016.
