The deceased, according to reports, was said to have left his pregnant wife at home on the excuse that he was going for a vigil in the church, only to end up in the house of his concubine for a night of steamy sex from where he met his sudden death.
The late Benjamin, whose corpse has been taken to Ijebu-Igbo, his home town, for burial, had allegedly been spending weekends with the secret lover on the pretext of going for vigil outside the town.
It was gathered that the man had suffered partial stroke some years ago after the tragic death of his first wife who was involved in the ill-fated Sosoliso air crash at Lisa Village, in the state,while returning from Abuja.
The deceased, said to be living with his wife in a house belonging to his mother in-law, until his death, was said to have already got children from his first marriage, while the pregnant young wife has no child.
A neighbour who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told Sun:
“It’s a shameful development which came as a surprise to us. He was the one his mother in-law put in charge of the construction of her house to supervise the project.
The woman and her mother are embittered that in spite of all they have done for him, he could still be pretending to go for vigil and be having extra-marital affairs.
What we heard was that they sent message to his family to go and remove his body from the concubine’s house.”
Meanwhile, the concubine, a young woman whose name was given as Bimpe, has reportedly vacated her house in Ayegbami extension, near Agura, Sabo, Sagamu where the ill-fated romance took place.
