Tragedy struck at Umuode community in Osisioma Ngwa council area of Abia state when a middle aged man identified as Hanson Jacob lost his life four days after his lover’s husband attacked him with an iron rod.
The incident which took place at 49 Umuode road, Aba, was said to have led to some neighbours fleeing the area for fear of police arrest.
247ureports.com gathered that Mr. Aro Frank, who hails from Ishiagu in Ebonyi State, has been suspecting his wife, Chika and the deceased of having extra-marital affair which became a common gossip in the neighbourhood.
Frank was said to have warned his wife on several occasions but the latter denied having any affair with the deceased.
A resident of the area told our correspondent that “It is like Frank has been monitoring his wife and her lover.It was also possible that somebody alerted him. That day, he suddenly returned home unannounced and caught his wife and her lover in the room making love.
“The man attacked Hanson with an iron rod and inflicted several injuries on him. Hanson was heavily hit that he couldn’t walk and later to the hospital while the husband and the wife handed themselves over to Police at Osisioma Ngwa Division after the incident.”
247ureports.com further gathered that Hanson who was admitted at the Abia State Teaching Hospital (ABSUTH) died four days later.
When contacted, Abia State Commissioner of Police, Adamu Ibrahim who confirmed Hanson’s death, added that Frank and his adulterous wife were already in police net.
He disclosed that police was still investigating the incident.
She can now carry on the affair in his grave. Funny thing; why do men go after the other man, instead of divorcing the cheating wife, so she can go marry her lover?
