A married man identified only as Udoh walked in on his wife having sexual intercourse with their neighbour on their matrimonial bed in the Ajegunle area of Lagos State.
The woman identified only as Gift, a mother of two kids, and the next door neighbour, Chukwuka, were making love in her bedroom, at Ojo Road when Udoh arrived.
Neighbours hinted him about what was happening as the sacrilegious relationship was no longer secret even though Gift and Chukwuka thought that they were discreet, Leadership reports.
The man met the shock of his life when he peeped through an opening in the window and saw the neighbour on top of his wife.
He reportedly screamed: “Abasi mbok!”, which means “God, help me!”, and rushed to the door where he shouted his wife’s name, according to a neighbour identified as Joseph Enang.
Udoh reportedly tried to break the door of his bedroom when his wife Gift opened it and he dashed in but Chukwuka escaped through the sitting room door.
Enang said, “When Udoh picked his cutlass and came out looking for both Gift and Chukwuka, they were no where to be found.
“Udoh bit his hand and swore that if any of them returns to the premises, blood would flow.
“He called his wife’s elder brother, telling him to order his sister, Gift back home or he would not see her alive. He narrated what happened to her brother.
“The neighbours were aware of the adulterous behaviour of the duo. Chukwuka is also married and blessed with one boy.
“His wife had quarrelled with him over his relationship with Gift but he would not listen. He lied that there was nothing between them but just good neighbourliness.
“People in the compound knew what was going on and later told the man secretly and that was why he told the wife he was going to an emergency party at Ikorodu and may not return on time. Unknown to the wife and his secret lover, he had set a trap for them.”
