Residents of Solar Power Drive, Igbo Olomu, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State are in shock after a landlord in the community, Omolaja Sodipo, allegedly stabbed his wife, Titilayo, killing her.

Sympathisers, friends and family members of the mother of 4, trooped to their bungalow on Monday, where Titilayo laid in a pool of blood.

The husband was said to have fled the scene.

Community leaders reportedly alerted policemen from the Owutu division, who removed the corpse and deposited it in a mortuary.

The couple had been married for over seven years according to neighbours

The relationship was said to have been fraught with domestic violence.

A community leader, who requested that he should not be named, said the victim’s mother lamented that her daughter had been complaining that her husband was always beating her.

A female resident, who did not want to be identified, said that she sighted the suspect walking away from the house around 8:00 a.m.

The police said the suspect is still at large and also hinted that an autopsy would be performed on the woman's body.
