Popular businessman, Ikechuckwu Ogbonna, known as IVD has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command over the incineration and death of his wife, Bimbo.
Ikechukwu and Abimbola had been married for 16 years, with the union blessed with five children.
The marriage, however, was fraught with disagreement and alleged domestic violence.
At the climax of their clash, the couple separated and were said to have reunited recently.
However, on Saturday, October 15, there was a fire incident at their Lekki mansion, as Abimbola was caught in the inferno. Bimbo was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit of a Lagos hospital but unfortunately gave up the ghost on Saturday morning.
Series of reports had it that Bimbo started the fire that ended her life, while relatives of the late Bimbo have made several claims and accusations that IVD was the one who pushed her into the flames and was directly responsible for her death.
The suspect had taken to his Instagram page to react to the death of his wife by posting a series of videos, alleging that the deceased had been violent to him and destroyed his property.
Lagos police spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin however confirmed that IVD has been arrested and transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in the Yaba area of the state.
“Contrary to claims by family and friends that 37-year-old Ikechukwu Ogbonna aka IVD is on the run, he has been arrested and transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Yaba,” he wrote.
