The price for adultery is fatal when one considers what happened recently in Badagry area Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, where a housewife died during sex with her neighbour, who is also married to another woman.
The man, Lawrence Chukwuma, landed in trouble after he had sex with Mrs Lucy Joseph, who died in the process.
The incident happened at 2nd Avenue, Oke-Morosun Magbon area of Badagry.
On the fateful day, the 48-year old Chukwuma from Anambra State, southeast Nigeria, reportedly woke up early and pretended that he was going to pursue his business and later came back when his own wife and Lucy’s husband had gone out.
It was gathered that while Chukwuma and Lucy were having the best of time, she suddenly started breathing heavily and became unconscious. Before Lucy was taken to hospital, she had already died and the doctors merely confirmed her dead.
It was not certain what actually caused her death, but her body has been deposited at the Badagry General Hospital for autopsy.
The matter was reported at the Badagary police division and Chukwuma, who also has three children, was arrested and the matter was transferred to SCID, Panti, Yaba for further investigation.
After investigation, the police charged him to Ebute-meta Magistrate’s court for causing Lucy’s death through unlawful carnal knowledge of her.
His plea was not taken.
The court ordered him to be remanded in prison custody at Ikoyi pending the outcome of the autopsy report and DPP’s advice.
The father of the late Lucy, Joseph Ebieme, who confirmed the incident, said he was at his work place when he was called on his phone line and told what happened. He said when he rushed home and went to Lawrence’s house, his daughter was already dead.
When P.M.NEWS visited the home of the deceased, the husband was not around to comment on the matter.
The younger sister of the deceased, Blessing Ebieme, said she came from her house in Ikorodu area to Badagry to take care of the children Lucy left behind.
Lucy hailed from Eket in Akwa Ibom State and had three children, Joy, 12, Isaiah 10, and Miracle, 5.
