A man who is supposed to be a good friend was caught sleeping with his pal's new wife.
A 35-year-old man identified as Mohammad, has been arrested by the Civilian JTF in the Maduganari area of Maiduguri, Borno State, for allegedly having sex with his best friend's new wife shortly after the couple tied the nuptial knots, reports Daily Trust.
It was gathered that the husband of a newly married lady, Bakolo Abdullahi, 28, had returned home in the evening of the fateful day and met Mohammad, his childhood friend, in his bed with his wife.
Abdullahi, told the JTF that when he returned home about 9 pm, his wife tried to prevent him from entering the room, but when he forced his way into the room, he found his childhood friend on his bed trying to dress up.
“I hit him on the face and shouted for help; but he ran away leaving his shoes before help came. The following morning, I traced him to a bus stop at Bulunkutu, where he was trying to board a vehicle.
I asked him to follow me to my house to take his shoes, but he refused. We started wrestling until officials of the road transport union separated us and took us to the Civilian JTF office close to the place.
The Civilian JTF took us to Bulunkutu Police Station, from where they referred us to Metro Police Station. After obtaining our statements, the police at Metro referred us to the hospital, where doctors confirmed that though he had affair with my wife, he did not infect her with any sexual disease," Abdullahi said.
Mohammadu on his part, confessed to the crime, blaming the devil for the act.
“I did not know the woman before they married recently. It was actually a mistake, which will never repeat itself. I regret doing what I did. It was the devil that pushed me into it,” he said.
