Moses Olapade, a 56-year-old ex-boxer, beat his wife Tinuke into a coma over a TV remote, MeridianSpy reports.
According to reports, the incident took place at their home in Akure, the state capital of Ondo State, in the Oke-Aro Community.
Upon his return from his trip, Olopade wanted to watch a television program. However, his wife refused to give him the remote control to select his chosen station, which led to an argument and a subsequent free-for-all, claims a source who does not wish to be named.
Olopade, who is also a truck driver, out of anger, reportedly rained punches on the wife and consequently, the latter fell down and became unconscious.
The source said it was the screaming of the children that attracted the neighbours to the scene. They quickly rushed the victim to a nearby hospital, where she was resuscitated.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, however, said she was yet to be briefed on the matter.
The PPRO stated,” I have called the DPO of the Area ( B Division Police Station), but he said the matter was not reported at the police station.”
