A reader, Richard, is at logger heads with his childhood friend, Dimeji, after he was caught sleeping with his friend's mother who practically seduced him into sleeping with her.

Read his letter here:

"My name is Richard, a 25-year-old young man trying to make ends meet in Lagos. But my life is being threatened by my childhood friend, Dimeji, who has vowed to kill or maim me, whichever he can achieve first.

It's not as if I am afraid of him but he also vowed to harm members of my family, all because his mother lured me to bed and he caught us in the act.

I have known Dimeji all my life and we grew up together. In fact, we were so close that many thought we were brothers. We were always in each other's house and did a lot of things together. One thing that was very clear even to my young eyes, was that his single mother had this carefree attitude and seemed to have so many men coming to look for her.

Dimeji always told me his father was in the United States but I was sure he never knew who his dad was. I had just rounded up my National Youth Service Corps scheme and was lazing about at home, with nothing specific to do, while Dimeji still had one more year to round up owing to the fact that he had lost a year due to strike in his school.

I had free access to their house and went there quite often, whether he was at home or not. And it was on one of such days that his mother seduced me and made sure I had sex with her. I felt guilty afterwards and thought it would end that day but she continued enticing me till I could not help myself but continued having sex with her.

I thought we were very discreet until Dimeji burst into the hotel room we had lodged for the night and caught us red handed. We had a big fight and only separated by the hotel staff and other customers.

Since that time, about three months ago, Dimeji has made life difficult for me and has vowed to send cult boys after me and my family members.

Some people have said I call him and beg him to let it go, while others say I should join a cult so as to protect myself. How do I go about this dilemma?
