A 35-year-old man identified only as Mohammad was arrested after he was caught having sex with his childhood friend’s wife in the Maduganari area of Maiduguri, Borno State.
Mohammad was arrested by the Civilian Joint Task Force, JTF for allegedly having sex with his best friend’s new wife shortly after the couple got married, according to reports.
The husband of the newly married lady, Bakolo Abdullahi, 28, had returned home at about 9pm on the fateful day only to be greeted by the sight of his friend in bed with his wife.
Abdullahi disclosed that his wife tried to prevent him from entering the room, but he forced his way into the room only to meet the shock of his life.
He said: “I hit him on the face and shouted for help; but he ran away leaving his shoes before help came. The following morning, I traced him to a bus stop at Bulunkutu, where he was trying to board a vehicle.
“I asked him to follow me to my house to take his shoes, but he refused. We started wrestling until officials of the road transport union separated us and took us to the Civilian JTF office close to the place.
“The Civilian JTF took us to Bulunkutu Police Station, from where they referred us to Metro Police Station. After obtaining our statements, the police at Metro referred us to the hospital, where doctors confirmed that though he had affair with my wife, he did not infect her with any sexual disease.”
The suspect who blamed the devil for pushing him said: “I did not know the woman before they married recently. It was actually a mistake, which will never repeat itself. I regret doing what I did. It was the devil that pushed me into it.”
