A man who caught his wife with her secret lover in a brothel in Owerri, Imo State, is battling for his life in a hospital after the wife and the lover descended on him and beat him to a pulp.
According to Eastern Digest, the man identified as Jerry, had caught his wife coming out of the brothel located opposite the Enugu Electric Distribution Corporation (EEDC) along Royce Road by Amaigbo Street in Owerri, with the secret lover who was identified as Okey.
The angry Jerry, according to the report, had gone to confront his rival and his wife and mother of three children, but to his surprise, the boyfriend and the wife turned on him and beat him to a coma, breaking his skull in the process.
Eyewitnesses say that attempts by the brothel owner and the other commercial sex workers tried to separate the fighters but all their efforts were abortive.
Speaking on his hospital bed, the injured husband said:
“I had an issue with my wife, which started late on Saturday night. She asked me for money to buy a dress, which I did not have.
I told her to calm down and that the remaining school fees of our children had to be first settled. She did not agree, but rather started nagging. Little did I know she was planning to move out.
I called her number several times, but it was switched off. I was only driving past the area when I saw my wife with another man in such an unholy place.
I got to meet this Okey for the first time today as I had always heard my wife conversing with him on phone. When I queried her, she said he was her business partner.”
When a call was put to the woman to narrate what happened, she said was tired of the marriage as her husband was not taking good care of her:
“Since I married him, he has never supported me in anything. He does not take good care of me. Each time I raised issues about my needs, he told me to wait. In fact, I am tired of the marriage.”
