15-year-old girl allegedly hires thugs to brutalise her mother’s new partner

Chaos ensued in the home of a newlywed couple as the woman’s 15-year-old daughter, Esther who did not approve of the marriage made arrangements to subject her step father to physical harm.

The girl’s mother claims she hired thugs to beat up her husband, Kayode Adesile because he had previously reprimanded her for disrespecting her.

When the man visited his wife, Oluwaseun Omolara Olusola, on June 25, 2024 at her residence in the Powerline area of Meiran, a suburb of Lagos, he was met with a brutal fate.

She claimed Esther invited hoodlums to teach her stepfather, Adesile, an automobile technician, a bitter lesson for meddling in her matter.

Speaking with The Nation, Oluwaseun said her daughter was being brainwashed and used by her unscrupulous family members and neighbours.

She said: “Esther Adekunle is a product of my former marriage. Her father humiliated me and was fond of brutalising me till we parted ways.

“It was recently when she insulted me openly that my new husband called her out and verbally reprimanded her for her misguided attitude.

“It was for that reason that she further became recalcitrant and planned with my mother’s family members and neighbours to invite the hoodlums to brutalise my husband.

“My new husband is not a gold digger. I have been dating him before my mother passed on two years ago. He was the one that provided the money we spent in processing admission for Esther to proceed for her Senior Secondary education.

“Yet, he is the same person my daughter brought hoodlums to humiliate in public on June 25. While the boys were beating my husband, they also slapped me when i tried to stop them.

”To my surprise, the boys came back the next day, June 26, and further assaulted me and there was no one to save me from them. They rushed to the police station and lied to the police that my husband attacked them. The police later detained my husband.

It gathered that after Adesile was assaulted, his attackers ran to the Meiran Police Station to report that he attacked them. When man went to report the matter at the same police station he was detained.

Police sources, however, disclosed that they later found out that he was actually the victim of the assault, contrary to the complaint made by his attackers.

On his part Adesile narrated; “I verbally reprimanded her recently for being rude and disrespectful to her mother, who is my wife. I didn’t know that she was upset by my action which I took in good faith. They had carefully plotted the assault on me, knowing that I usually visit my wife’s home three times in a week.

“It was when I came around on Wednesday, June 26, 2024 that I was accosted by Esther who beckoned on the hoodlums to beat me up. I was badly beaten and humiliated as they took their time to make videos of the assault.”
