Anthony allegedly murdered his 28-year-old pregnant spouse, a Barrister, while on admission bed at Doyen Hospital in Ajah.

Muyiwa Adejobi, the Police Public Relations Officer, in a statement confirmed the case had been transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, for investigation.

The spokesman assured that the command will do justice to the case which sparked outrage.

In his first statement, Adejobi said Adaeze died on April 10 after she was admitted for pregnancy-related complications.
