Furious at the discovery of his wife’s alleged infidelity, a truck driver, Muyiwa Sikiru, has publicly dishonored the woman by tying her to a fountain in the Oke-Aro neighborhood of Akure, the capital of Ondo state.
Vanguard found that the husband had traveled for three months, only to find on his return that another man was living with his wife in their marital home.
He reportedly worked out of state but preferred to settle his wife and three-year-old son in metropolitan Akure.
Upon arriving at his home, sources said his neighbors and friends, noticing that another man had moved in with his wife, informed him of his wife’s antics.
Angered by the ugly news, he is said to have dragged the woman out of the room and tied her to the fountain in front of the house.
The friend, who went to the bathroom to take his bath, reportedly escaped through the window when he heard the man scream in a loud voice.
Vanguard noted that the timely intervention of some area elders prevented the husband from harming the wife over her alleged infidelity.
They later begged him and later took the couple to the police station to settle the matter amicably.
State police image maker Funmi Odunlami could not be reached for comment, but a police officer said the matter was later settled at the city’s police station.
Meanwhile, the husband insisted that the intruder and his wife’s friend should be arrested and that he was ready to press charges against him.
