When Sherifat tied the marital bond with Shakiru more than nine years ago, she never knew a day would come when she would be chopped into pieces by the same man.

The chopped pieces of Sherifat were recovered in different sacks.

Shakiru led a team of detectives from the Ijora Badia Police Division to two uncompleted buildings in the Yaba and Somolu areas of Lagos, where the remains of late Sherifat was discovered.

The suspect allegedly invited Sherifat to a location to collect money for the upkeep of their three children.

She, however, did not return home alive.

The court ordered the remand of Shakiru in custody and ruled that the case be adjourned till March 17, 2017.
