A man simply identified as Gbenro has strangled his wife known as Wayesola, who was fast asleep, to death, The Nation Newspaper reports.
Their daughter, Fayoke, narrated how her father killed her mother.
The incident was said to have happened at Salvation Army Street, Odojọmu, Ondo city at about 6am.
Fayoke said she saw her father strangling her mother when she got up to ease herself but couldn’t do anything because her father threatened to kill her.
It was however her cry for help that attracted neighbours, who got there after the woman was already dead.
Neighbours, who ran to the scene, called the deceased brother but locked the man indoors to stop him from escaping.
Ondo Police spokesperson, ASP Tee- Leo Ikoro, said the matter has been transferred to the state CID for further investigation.
