Man in prison for slapping wife’s friend

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

An Ejigbo Magistrate’s court in Lagos has remanded a 44-year-old man, Oluokun Olarewaju, in prison for allegedly slapping his wife’s friend, Miss Christiana Duntoye, who told his wife that she saw him with another woman.

According to the charge, the incident happened at 84, Rasaki Tijani Street, Ikotun, where Olarewaju resides with his family, while his wife’s friend (Duntoye) resides at 75 of same street.

It was gathered that peace fled Olarewaju’s family when the gossip started.

Olarewaju’s wife confronted him and accused him of engaging in extra-marital affairs and for suddenly changing his attitude at home.

After much pressure as to the source of the information, Olanrewaju’s wife allegedly told him that her friend, Duntoye, told her.

During one of their now constant quarrels, Duntoye came visiting and was confronted by the accused, who allegedly slapped her and asked her to leave his house since she tried to break up his marriage.

When the charge was read to the accused before Magistrate A. A. Fashola, he pleaded not guilty.

The magistrate granted the accused N50,000 bail, with one surety in like sum, but he was remanded in Kirikiri Prison pending perfection of his bail conditions.
