Afobaje Maiyegun, a Lagos-based man, who allegedly battered his wife and boasted about it on Facebook, has been arrested.


The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) took to its Twitter page on Thursday to confirm Maiyegun’s arrest in a statement.

The agency also disclosed that the man would be charged to court on May 15.

“The attention of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team was drawn  to a viral post on Facebook wherein one Afobaje Maiyegun boasted that he had just beaten up his wife and declared he is ‘waiting for her police’ to come and arrest him,” the statement read.


“Immediately, the team reached out to ACP Gbolahan Odugbemi, Area Commander, Area J who ensured that the said person was arrested immediately. Preliminary investigation conducted revealed that this is not the first time the said Mr. Maiyegun would perpetrate such a dastardly act.

“A partner NGO, HerfessionsApp, was on ground to assist with the investigation. The case is set to be charged to court on Friday, 15th May, 2020.”

On May 5, Maiyegun had taken to Facebook to brag about beating his wife while also challenge the police to come for him.

“I beat my wife and I am waiting for her police because I talk to a woman,” he had written in company of photos of the allegedly battered spouse.
