A US-based Nigerian man, Obinna Dwayne Igbokwe, has committed suicide after shooting his wife and killing her mother in Texas.
According to the Police, Obinna shot his wife, Tangela, and her mother on their foreheads after having a heated argument about who should take custody of their 3-month-son, Mansa.
The elderly woman, identified as Linda Larkins, was said to have died on the spot while Tangela was flown to the hospital where she’s currently fighting for her life.
Well, when the couple were in a good place few years ago, Tangela took to her Instagram page to share photos of them together.
The deceased was said to be his second wife and they have three children together while his first wife bore four children for him.
According to neighbors of the couple, Balogun physically assaults Tawa at the slightest provocation and this has been going on for years so it was considered to be a normal occurrence.
On the tragic day of the incident on Monday, May 31, Balogun was said to have beaten his wife mercilessly and she was heard crying out for help from people around.
She reportedly collapsed from the beating and passed away, after which Balogun ran away from their house in Lagos to Ogun state where he turned himself into the police.
The spokesperson of the Ogun state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect denied beating his wife to death and claimed to have knocked her down with his car.
