Justin is in a dilemma after his best friend, Dave, has taken him as enemy number one because Dave's wife, Jovita, told a lie against Justin, even when she is the guilty party.

Read Justin's letter here:

"My name is Justin and I am in a dilemma at the moment and needs advice from other readers. I have known Dave all my life as we grew up in the same neighbourhood. We were so close that many thought we were brothers.

We carried on this close friendship all through our school days till date but that friendship is being threatened by his wife, Jovita. They got married about three years ago and have a son together but his friends including me, have always known her to be a wild girl.

In fact, one of our friends who went to school together with her had tried to stop Dave from marrying her, sighting he love for the flashy life, partying and sleeping around as reasons but Dave was so much in love with her and would not be dissuaded.

Once in a while, Dave has had cause to travel out of Lagos on official duties and it was on one of such occasions that I caught Jovita at a club with another man. There was nothing left to the imagination that she was having an affair with the man and that she had gone home with the man.

I was shocked beyond words that a mother with a young son would leave him at home and go clubbing whenever the husband was out of town. The next day, Jovita came to my house and pleaded with me never to reveal her secrets to my friend and even though I promised her that I would not tell Dave what I saw, she tried to seduce me into having sex with her but I bluntly refused and asked her to leave my apartment.

Little did I know that she had taken a dislike for me because anytime I went to their house, she would be cold to me, unlike before. Then she began telling Dave tales about me asking her out, wanting to sleep with her.

I was surprised when Dave came to me and almost fought me for trying to sleep with his wife. He was so mad that he said so many unprintable things. Other friends who witnessed the scene tried to calm him down but he vowed that the battle line had been drawn between us and nothing can ever make us close again.

I have still maintained my silence over what I saw that night, even the fact that I had used my phone to snap her when I saw her drunk kissing the man she was with. But now she has made me the bad person in front of my friends and family.

I am tempted to leak the secret but I don't want to be the one to cause disaffection in their home but I can't take Dave's constant embarrassment any longer.

What should I do in this circumstance?
