A married woman was caught pants down with a lecturer of the Federal College of Education, Asaba, Delta State inside a hotel at Abraka road in the state.
The lecturer identified only as Simeon, escaped being lynched by an angry mob after he was caught with the woman whose name was given only as Winifred.
Winifred’s visibly enraged husband, Mr Moses (surname withheld) a senior staff of the state-owned newspaper company, mobilized an angry mob to deal with the lecturer but he escaped.
According to reports, the woman’s husband stormed the hotel following a tip off that his wife and the lecturer were lodged at the hotel.
It was gathered that the affair between the duo started way back when she was a student of the institution and continued even after she had graduated and got married.
Winifred’s husband’s suspicion was further strengthened when he reportedly stumbled into a love text message which the lecturer sent to his wife asking her to meet him at the hotel.
He set a trap for the cheating pair and on the fateful day, after he learnt that his wife had gone to meet the man in the designated hotel, he mobilized the mob and stormed the secret love rendezvous where he caught his adulterous wife with her lover boy who is equally a married man.
The irked husband was said to have also mobilized some members of his wife’s family who broke into the room only to catch the naked woman red-handed, right in the act with the lecturer.
The cheating duo were beaten blue black before they were rescued by policemen from the ‘B’ Division of the state Police Command.
Police officers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the woman’s clothes were already torn before they arrived the scene.
During interrogation, the woman blamed the devil for pushing her into having extra-marital affairs.
Meanwhile, the husband vehemently stated that the marriage was over as he would send the woman packing.
He sad: “It is over for my wife. The only saving grace is that the lecturer escaped.”
