While reiterating his zero tolerance for crimes and criminality, especially domestic violence, CP Hakeem Odumosu admonishes couples to always resolve their differences and conflicts with decorum and maturity as the law will not spear anyone who kills his or her spouse.''a statement from Ademuyiwa read

The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, therefore commiserates with the family and friends of the deceased on her untimely death and promises to make sure justice is done in the case.
