A man who slept with his neighbour's wife narrowly escaped death.
But for divine intervention, a middle aged man identified as Chukwuka, would have been sent to the grave beyond by an angry husband, Emmanuel Udoh, after being caught having sex with Udoh's wife on his matrimonial bed.
According to information, the incident happened in the Ajegunle based area of Lagos State, when Udoh allegedly caught Chukwuka red handed on his wife, Gift, a mother of two kids, inside his bedroom.
The story has it that Udoh and Chukwuka, himself a married man with a kid, are next door neighbours at their Ojo Road residence buy unknown to him, the randy man was secretly sleeping with Udoh's wife though other tenants knew what was going on but refused to tell the husband so that the two would not clash.
But on the fateful day, Udoh was late in coming and Chukwuka had sneaked into his neighbour's apartment to have a tryst with the woman and when he came back, he was hinted by some other tenants what was going on in his apartment.
Udoh was said to have tiptoed to his apartment and peeped through the window to see the most shocking sight of his life: his neighbour was humping on his wife.
The enraged Udoh was said to have rushed to the door and tried to force it open to catch the two adulterers in his room but they managed to escape naked through the window before Udoh could lay hold on his machete under his bed.
A neighbour who identified himself as Joseph Enang, disclosed that it was God that saved Chukwuka and Gift as Udoh who is from Akwa Ibom, could have sent them to their graves.
“When Udoh picked his cutlass and came out looking for both Gift and Chukwuka, they were nowhere to be found.
Udoh bit his hand and swore that if any of them returns to the premises, blood would flow. He called his wife’s elder brother, telling him to order his sister, Gift back home or he would not see her alive. He narrated what happened to her brother.
The neighbours were aware of the adulterous behaviour of the duo. Chukwuka is also married and blessed with one boy. His wife had quarrelled with him over his relationship with Gift but he would not listen.
He lied that there was nothing between them but just good neighbourliness. People in the compound knew what was going on and later told the man secretly and that was why he told the wife he was going to an emergency party at Ikorodu and may not return on time. Unknown to the wife and his secret lover, he had set a trap for them," Ennang said.
