Physinews Reports: A 27-year-old beautician, Latifat Adeyemi, has
been battered by her aunt’s husband, Rasak
Alabi, aka Alfa, for allegedly turning on an air
conditioner in their house in Solebo, Ikorodu
area of Lagos State.

Alabi reportedly claimed that the gadget
consumed excessive power, and allegedly hit
the victim with a spanner in the face and
flogged her with a piece of cable, which led to
her admission in a private hospital.

PUNCH Metro was told that for the past 10
years, Latifat and her grandma had been living
in a bungalow at the back of the house on Ile
Eye Street, which was reportedly built by Alabi’s

It was learnt that Alabi, who had separated
from his wife for the past 20 years, moved into
the building in 2015 after reconciling with his
wife, a nurse, who is based in the United States
of America.

Our correspondent was told that since Alabi
moved into the house, there had been
misunderstandings, which had led to the
eviction of some relatives in the house.

Latifat said she was staying in the house
because she had to cater to her grandma.

She said, “My aunt is a nurse and she is based
in the US. She put her mother in the house and
asked me to cater to her. Grandma and I had
been living in that house for over 10 years.

“Alfa (Alabi) and my aunt separated over 20
years ago. They never had a child together. But
last year, they reconciled and the family said
we needed a man in the house; so he moved
into the house. He evicted our last born, but I
stayed behind because of grandma.

“Last week Friday, when I returned from
Surulere around 7pm, I saw that he had broken
into my apartment and removed the AC there.

He said the AC consumed too much power.

“I made a call to my uncle and I told him that I
would be packing out of the house because I
was fed up. As I turned around, he hit me in the
eye severally with a spanner and as I ran off,
he picked a cable piece and flogged me.”

She said she went to the Ipakodo Police Station
to report the incident, adding that operatives
who followed her to the house met the gate

Latifat said the police turned back when they
could not gain entrance.

disagreement between Alabi and Rashidat in
the past, adding that the AC was only an
excuse for the suspect to chase her out of the

“This is the only girl left in that house because
of grandma. He had been finding excuses to
send her away,” she explained.

reported to a vigilance group, Onyabo, that his
car had been vandalised by Latifat’s siblings.

He was also alleged to have later gone to the

Raheedat said the police called for a peace
meeting between the parties, but the suspect
rejected the move and ejected the grandma
from the house.

“The old woman, who had left her husband’s
house for the past 30 years, had returned to the
same place again,” she added.

Alabi’s phone rang out many times when our
correspondent called him.
He had yet to respond to a text message sent
to his phone on Saturday.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo
Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that
