A 32-year-old man identified as Amatari Christmas, committed suicide after he caught his wife having sex with another man at Ikolo, in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
Christmas was said to have consumed an insecticide known as Sniper, on Tuesday, July 28, 2015.
The deceased had two children with his wife, Tombara, an indigene of Ayama in the same local government area.
According to Vanguard, the incident stirred anger among indigenes of the community, with some kinsmen threatening to invoke their ancestors to deal with the unfaithful woman and her lover, said to be a suspected cultist from Ayama who threatened to kill the deceased.
Speaking about the incident, a kinsman of the deceased, identified only as Francis, said: “On Monday, the husband went to fetch vegetable in large quantities for his wife to sell. After harvesting the vegetable, the husband told the wife to return home after market to prepare dinner for the family.
“However, the dead husband became worried and suspicious at about 7p.m. when the wife did not return as instructed and went in search of her at his in-law’s house.
“At the mother in-law’s house, he was told she had gone to the father’s place at Ayama. At Ayama, a concerned friend took him to the home of his wife’s lover, where he caught them in bed.”
It was gathered that Christmas caught his wife right in the act from an uncompleted building and later got home where he locked out his children and drank the deadly substance.
