Lekan who was arrested on Monday by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in Lagos four days after going into hiding maintained that his wife was his most priced possession.

Although he admitted that there was a quarrel between them a day before she died over infidelity on the part of his late wife; he maintained that he had nothing to do with her death.
According to him: “The cause of the quarrel was over infidelity. I over-heard her discussing on phone with one Kayode, who was her boss and lover.
“I never killed my wife. We had a normal quarrel after she owned up that she had a man friend. We didn’t talk over-night.
