Wonders they say shall never end as a man has been fined Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500, 000) by his kinsmen or risk the forfeiture of his house for sleeping with another man’s wife.
Mr. Nwaogwu (other name withheld by us) who hails from Ekwashi Ngbo and also a neighbor to Mr. Nwali (other name withheld by us) had claimed to have been mediating between Nwaogwu and his wife Mrs. Roseline over a misunderstanding that ensued between them while she (Roseline) was on a visit to her husband in Lagos.
Nwali as gathered allegedly convinced the woman to meet him in a hotel where he slept with her on several occasions.
After her supposed visitation to see her husband she traveled back to Ekwashi Ngbo while Mr. Nwaogwu quickly followed suit.
Back in the village, Nwaogwu on one faithful day had a serious argument with his wife, and Nwali’s wife came to ascertain what was the problem as a neighbour and family friend, and on getting there, the mans wife wasn’t on sight when Mr. Nwaogwu, grabbed her into their matrimonial bed and started caressing her body.
His wife on seeing how he dragged her into their room quickly trailed them to know what was happening, only to see her husband romancing Mrs. Nwali who quickly shouted, claiming that Mr. Nwaogwu was trying to rape her.
To exonerate himself, The Voice gathered that he (Mr. Nwaogwu), immediately narrated how their extra marital relationship started, disclosing that they have had mutual sex more than once .
However, on hearing the news, Nwali told Mr. Nwaogwu to make ready N500, 000 to enable him get a new wife since he has taken over his wife. Coming back to the village to collect the money and get a new wife, he discovered that Nwaogwu didn’t comply.
Nwali quickly met with his kinsmen who ordered the ejection of Mr. Nwaogwu and his family from their house pending when he complies or forfeits the house to Mr. Emenike as compensation.
Speaking with one of the Kinsmen who pleaded anonymity, he disclosed that the case was already on their table and was being handled.
“The case is currently being handled. The man who committed the crime and even the woman are no where to be found. Though I have not heard from the man whose wife was slept with lately, but we are on it.
As at the time of filing this report, Mr Nwaogwu and family were all at large while the case was been handled by their kinsmen at Ekwashi Ngbo.
