Punch reports that Igbokwe caught the adulterous duo at 12am on Wednesday, July 27, 2016, and was arrested the following day.

Igbokwe who was was paraded at the State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran Abeokuta, alongside his 28-year-old wife, Juliet, explained to journalists that he had returned from a business trip to Onitsha when he met Olatundun on top of his wife on their matrimonial bed.

Filled with anger, Igbokwe said he quickly picked up a machete he kept in his toilet and gave the victim cuts on his neck and hand and he died as he was being rushed to the hospital.

“I am a businessman and I deal in electronics. I was born in Ago Iwoye, Ogun State. I travelled to Onitsha on July 25, and when I came back on July 27, I met a man inside my room making love to my wife.

Then we started fighting. The man was stronger than me. When I saw he could overpower me, I got a cutlass in my toilet and dealt him blows in the hand and neck. On the way to the hospital, the fuel in the car finished and he died.”

He further claimed that he had never met Olatundun before, and that he never suspected that his wife and mother of three children was having an extra-marital affair with anyone.

On her part, the weeping Juliet, who said she sold snuff and that Olatundun was her supplier, had been pressurising her for a relationship for some time and her explanations that she was a married woman fell on deaf ears.

“He had been disturbing me that he wanted to marry me, but I said I was married. On the day of the incident, I really can’t say if he used a charm on me. All I know is that he called me that he wanted to see me and I told him not to come; he knew my house and when he came, I didn’t know what happened."

"He used to come and deliver snuff to me in the house. On the day of the incident, he told me he was coming from somewhere and that it was already late. He wanted to sleep in our place till the next day.

He didn’t know that my husband was away. He tried to sleep with me. I got married to my husband in 2005 and we have been having turbulent times as he does not take care oif me and the children. He always beat me and would leave me and the children for months."
