…Man Remanded in Ikoyi Prison
By ‘Tunde Babalola
When the holy books of both Christian and Muslim preach about adultery, it is because of the dangers involved in the act.
But an housewife, mother of three who refused to heed the call “Thou shalt not commit adultery” has been confirmed dead in Badagry, Lagos during rounds of sex with another man who himself is married.
The incident happened at 2nd Avenue, Oke-Morosun Magbon area of Badagry.
The housewife simply identified as Mrs Lucy Joseph hailed from Eket in Akwa Ibom State is a mother of three children. Lucy died in the apartment of the 48 year old man, Lawrence Chukwuma who is from Anambra State.
They were said to be enjoying the act of infidelity when Chukwuma who love for smooching neighbour’s wife has landed in trouble was having sex with Mrs Lucy Joseph who died in the process.
An Ebute-Meta Magistrate has ordered that Chukwuma be remanded in Ikoyi Prison pending the outcome of the autopsy report on Lucy.
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.
On the fateful day, the 48-year old Chukwuma from Anambra State 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.
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.
