There was pandemonium in the Imo State capital Owerri, on Monday when a man reportedly sighted his wife coming out of a brothel with an alleged boyfriend.
The cuckolded man lost his cool, naturally, and confronted his errant wife as any red-blooded husband would, only, it didn’t turn out well as a fight soon broke out between the couple.
Punch reports that sex workers at the brothel booed the man while the fight lasted, with some witnesses claiming that they held him as the boyfriend, identified simply as Okey, and the wife gave him a hiding.
Okey was reported to have broken the man’s head with a club in the process.
The fight reportedly went on until the owner of the brothel, situated at Amaigbo Street, Owerri, adjacent to an electricity distribution company, intervened.
“Blood was gushing out of the man’s head due to the injuries he sustained. He was later treated in a nearby chemist’s,” a source said.
In her outburst during the fight, the wife told the public that she regretted marrying her husband, whom she called Jerry.
It is understood that the woman, a mother of three and in her early 30’s, had had a disagreement with the husband on Sunday before fleeing the house for the tryst with Okey.
Perilous times indeed…
