He explained that men of the Lagos State Police Command moved into the area shortly after the incident occurred and arrested the suspects.
Elkana disclosed that Tohouo’s wife, Bernadette, a Hungarian and mother of three, died from injuries sustained from the attack.
On his part, Tohouo was critically injured and has been taken to an undisclosed hospital in the Victoria Island axis of the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer added that the suspects have been transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal and Intelligence Department, Panti in Yaba, for discreet investigation and subsequent prosecution.

The Lagos State Police Command says it has arrested two suspected robbers in the Mushin area of Lagos State.
In a statement on Sunday, the command’s spokesman, Bala Elkana, explained that the suspects were arrested by a team of policemen on patrol on Thursday.
“On 22/08/2019 at about 0730hrs, Anti-Crime patrol team from Mushin Police Station led by Inspector Atipi Agasa while on patrol along Olorunsogo Bus Stop, Mushin intercepted one Omisogun Mathew ‘m’ 25 years old and Yetunde Lawson ‘F’ 28 years on a motorcycle.
“On sighting the police team, the hoodlums attempted to escape but were given a hot chase,” he said.
Some fans, have, however, argued that while her actions were indeed criminal, she no longer tows the path and she can’t be compared to other celebrities who allegedly committed the crimes despite their status and privilege.
Red-hot rap queen Cardi B is working to quash controversy over resurfaced footage in which she admits to drugging and robbing men, pointing to “limited options” in her days as a stripper.
Social media backlash has swirled in recent days over the three-year-old clip taken from an Instagram live session, with the unfiltered rapper saying she “drugged (men) up, and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do.”
Responding to the criticism over the video, the now 26-year-old went on the offensive on Instagram, saying she had discussed “things I had to do in my past right or wrong that I felt I needed to do to make a living.”
“I was blessed to have been able to rise from that but so many women have not.”
The expletive-laden video appears to be a response to allegations that she hadn’t earned her success, with Cardi saying in it: “nothing was… handed to me.”
But the clip triggered the hashtag #SurvivingCardiB, a reference to the bombshell docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” that refocused attention on sex abuse accusations against that R&B star.
Many Twitter users alleged a double standard, saying her actions were comparable to those of male performers accused of sexual assault.
“The men I spoke about in my live were men that I dated that I was involved with men that were conscious willing and aware,” she posted on Instagram late Tuesday.
The outspoken superstar — who last month became the first woman solo artist to win a Best Rap Album Grammy — said she is part “of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”
“There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs and robbing,” Cardi said. “I never glorified the things I brought up in that live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it.”
“All I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future.”
Born Belcalis Almanzar to a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother, the Bronx native’s unchartered rise to fame kicked off during her days as a stripper, when she carved out a social media personality on platforms including Instagram.
She is married to fellow rapper Offset with whom she has a baby daughter, Kulture.
The suspects – Adebayo Ayomide and Isaac David – were arrested by a team of detectives led by the Divisional Police Officer, Maroko Police Station, Mr Isah Abdulmajid.
The police team had embarked on crime prevention patrol on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge around 9 pm on Saturday.
In the course of their duty, they came in contact with two young women simply identified as, Gbemi and Hannah, who appeared to be in panic.
Upon questioning, the women explained to the team that they had just been dispossessed of their phones by the suspects at gunpoint.
They pointed at the direction through which the suspects escaped on a motorcycle after which the police went after them.
“The team tracked down the suspects and upon searching them, their operational single-barrelled gun, a cutlass and the phone were found on them. The items were recovered and the criminals were taken into custody,” the statement said.
“In their confessional statements, they owned up to belonging to a syndicate terrorising Lekki and its environs.”
According to Elkana, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Zubairu Muazu, commending the team for a swift response to the crime and the eventual arrest of the suspects.
He also directed that the case be transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the command for further investigation.
The police commissioner assured residents of the state of the command’s commitment to securing lives and properties in every nook and cranny of the state.
He, however, warned criminal-minded individuals to either change their ways or face the full weight of the law.
