The wife denied all allegations of domestic violence against her husband and requested for the case to be withdrawn – DSVA speaks on dismissed case of X-user who admitted to b£ating his wife

The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) says the case against X-user, Surajudeen Oyetunji Oyewale ka Suraj, was dropped as the alleged survivor denied all allegations of domestic violence against her and requested for the case to be withdrawn. Suraj was dragged before the court on a two-count charge filed against him by the state government after he came out to publicly admit that he beat up his wife after she refused to let him exercise his “Islamic right to pick a second wife”. He was arraigned in court on Thursday, July 4 on two counts, Assault against his spouse and Conduct Likely to Cause Breach of Peace, but the case was struck out by the court.  In a statement released today July 5, DSVA stated that the matter was dismissed after the victim denied the allegations of domestic violence.  Read the statement belowIn response to the recent case involving Surajudeen Oyetunji Oyewale, who publicly admitted to committing domestic violence, addressing this matter was crucial due to public interest.
