Wife Plants A Tape In Office Bag To Catch Her Cheating Husband In Lagos, This Happens

Physinews: A 36-year-old woman, Ifeyinwa Nlemchi,who
allegedly burnt her husband’s official
documents to protest his adulterous acts, was
on Monday hauled up before a Yaba Chief
Magistrates’ Court in Lagos In Nigeria.


The accused, who resides at No. 45, Church
St., Fiwakesin, Agebde in Ikorodu, Lagos State,
is standing trial on a two-count charge
bordering on malicious damage.
Prosecutor Roman Unuigbe told the court that
the accused committed the offences on
September 16 at their residence.
Unuigbe alleged that the accused who
suspected that her husband was having an
illicit relationship with another woman, planted
a tape in his office bag to record their
conversations.

He said the accused also found out that her
husband was spending time at a hotel with
another woman and out of jealousy, took all the
documents he had brought from work and set
them on fire.

“Her husband, who made a report at the police
station, said he wanted her charged to court for
wilfully destroying four international passports
belonging to clients of Multi Choice Nigeria.’’

The offences contravened Sections 338 and
348 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2011.

Ifeyinwa, however, pleaded not guilty to the
charges.

In his ruling, the Chief Magistrate, Mr P.A. Ojo,
granted her bail in the sum of N200,000 with
two sureties in like sum.

He said one of the sureties must be a blood
relation of the accused and should be gainfully
employed in a reputable and verified
organisation.
In addition, the magistrate said the sureties
must show evidence of tax payment to the
government.

The case was adjourned to November 4 for
substantive trial.
