A husband simply identified as Udoh, reportedly caught his wife having sex with their next door neighbour, Chukwuka, on their matrimonial bed on Saturday, September 12.
According to Leadership report, some of the neighbours had earlier informed Udoh that his wife was cheating on him. He then set a trap for her, telling her he was going for an emergency party at Ikorodu and may not return on time.
Udoh later returned to their apartment at Ojo road in Ajegunle area of Lagos state when someone informed him of what was going on.
A neighbour, who identified himself as Joseph Enang said the man peeped through an opening in the window and saw his wife, Gift and Chukwuka making love.
Shocked by what he was seeing, Udoh screamed and tried to break down the door to his bedroom.
His wife, a mother of two was said to have opened the door but Chukwuemeka escaped before the husband could pounce on him.
Enang explained that Gift ran out of the house as her husband went to look for his cutlass under the bed.
Udoh reportedly swore to deal with the both of them if they returned to the house.
He was also said to have called his wife’s elder brother, telling him to take his sister home and keep her there if he wanted to see her alive.
Enang disclosed that the neighbours were aware of the illicit affair between the duo, saying: “Chukwuka is also married and blessed with one boy. His wife had quarreled with him over his relationship with Gift but he would not listen. He lied that there was nothing between them but just good neighborliness.”
Many have blamed the rising cases of divorce on adultery. About two weeks ago, an Ekiti-based businessman, Muyiwa Owolabi, had reportedly dragged his wife, Tinuola, to an Ado Ekiti Customary Court for committing ‘social media’ adultery. He asked the court to dissolve their 10-year-old marriage.
