A man had been killed after he was caught having sex with a married woman, who incidentally was his sister-in-law.
The deceased, Umar Musa was cousins with the woman’s husband, Tambaya Usman, from Jaguwa village, in Niger State.
Usman had walked on his cousin copulating with his wife inside their matrimonial home. He angrily fetched a machete, which he inflicted on Musa.
Musa was said to have succumbed to his injury. Upon his arrest, Usman told the police Musa had had sex repeatedly with his wife, but despite warnings from their parents that he should desist from the act, the deceased persisted.
Wasiu Abiodun, spokesperson for the Niger Police, said police officers attached to Kagara Division arrested the suspect.
“The suspect said the deceased later apologized for the act and promised never to engage in such misdeed again, but to his surprise he caught him again, hence his action,” Abiodun said.
He said the suspect was arraigned on charges of culpable homicide in the court.
