Husband and wife arrested after he killed his wife’s lover
An angry Ezekiel flew into a blind rage, picked up a cutlass and butchered his wife’s lover. The couple who have been married for 12 years, have three children together and lived in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun state. Here’s what the accused said below:
“I travelled to Onitsha on July 25. When I came back on the 27th, I met a man inside my room and we started fighting. The man was stronger than I and I didn’t know what to do. Then I got a cutlass from my toilet and cut him in the hand. He died on the way, while policemen were taking him to the hospital, because their car ran out of fuel. I never suspected my wife of infidelity before the incident. It is not my intention to waste a soul like this.
It is Satan’s work; if I really know it will be like this, I would have walked away. My aim was to injure him, go to the police station and make a report. PWe did not quarrel before I went to Onitsha. She has three children for me. But I got to know my wife had one child before we met.” Here’s what his wife Juliet said: “I did not know what came over me to have allowed my lover access to my matrimonial home. When my husband and I quarrel, he would leave us and travel for months. I have known Olatundun for 6 months. My husband is not taking care of me. He always leaves me and the children to suffer at home.”
