A man in Plateau State has killed his wife's secret lover.
A 25-year-old man, Sohnan Sunday, from Wase Local Government Area of Plateau State, has been arrested by the State Police Command for allegedly murdering one Garba Vondung, whom he said had been having sexual affairs with his wife, adding that his wife had been impregnated on two occasions by the lover boy and aborted both pregnancies.
The suspect who was paraded at Command headquarters in Jos for culpable homicide, however, said he killed Vondung in self-defense when he met the deceased and his wife, Chanchit Sohnan making love in her room.
“I have three children with my wife, but she was going out with Garba. I asked him to stay away from my wife but he refused. To my knowledge, she had aborted twice for him.
I reported the illicit affair to my wife’s family, but they told me I should understand that she is an orphan who needed assistance. My wife left me since May last year to her father’s house, but I was going there to see her.
One day in December last year, I went to the house to beg her to return to my house and I met my wife and her lover making love. Immediately they saw me, the man stood up and took a knife in the room but I overpowered him, collected the knife and stabbed him.
When my wife saw him bleeding, she raised alarm and neighbours came with sticks and started beating me. I managed to run away and reported the matter at the Police Station in Langtang, but they referred me to Wase where I was arrested.”
