A recent graduate completing his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) service, Bonaventure was arraigned in a Gudu Upper Area Court in Abuja on Monday for allegedly committing adultery.

The Eagle Online reports that the husband of his alleged lover made a direct criminal complaint to the court against the defendant on March 24.

The accused who resides in Abuja was arraigned on a one-count charge of committing adultery with Mrs. Anozie.

The plaintiff, Mr Anozie of Kaduna State made his complaint through his counsel, Obioma Achilefu.

The offence contravened Section 387 of the Penal Code Cap 89 Laws of Northern Nigeria, 1963.

The plaintiff said the defendant, knowing that he is legally married to Mrs Anozie, committed adultery with her on December 18, 2014.

He said he called the defendant on the phone and the defendant confessed that he had sex with Mr Anozie’s wife once.

According to Mr Anozie,he “warned the defendant to stay away from his wife, but his warnings fell on deaf’s ears.”
He explained that the defendant on August 18 2015 sent transport money to his lover (Mrs Anozie), who was enrolled in a tertiary institution in Anambra State, to visit him at his residence and she did. She stayed with Bonaventure in his house from the said date till August 28.
He said the defendant repeatedly committed adultery with Mrs Anozie despite his warnings. He explained that the act wounded his “heart beyond measure”.

The defendant pleaded not guilty.

The judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, admitted Bonaventure to bail in the sum of N100,000 and one surety in like sum and adjourned the case till August 30 for hearing.

    Corper. You have a bright future ahead. Why indulge yourself in such frivolities. Did you not read the fact in the book of Proverbs that if a husband discovers you had an affair with his wife he can kill you. I don’t care if some people condone it but this act is despicable before God and you absolutely have no excuse.

    Some lawyer needs to explain to me which one is Laws of Northern Nigeria 1963. Is this sharia law? Are you trying to tell me that sharia law applies to residents of Abuja?

    Either way, why is it illegal for a man to sleep with someone else’s wife but it is not illegal for a woman to sleep with someone else’s husband.

    Am not a lawyer but I read for knowledge. The Penal code is the jurisdiction for administration of justice in the North including Abuja. The criminal code is that of the south. Under the penal code which has an infusion of sharia law, adultery is a crime punishable by imprisonment or fine or both depending on the Judges interpretation of the circumstances. In the south, adultery is not a crime under the criminal code. In this scenario, I must commend the husband for not resulting to violence esspecially after warning the defendant. Be that as it may, the wife is an harlot and instead of taking the defedant to court, why not divorce your serial cheating wife instead of getting this kind of messy publicity. The Corper is an idiot, some man can kill in these circumstances, why loose your life because of pussy that is freely available on a platter of gold without any baggage. Some boys are just damm foolish.

    NYSC – National Year Sexual Copulation. And how come the woman is not a co-defendant? She also opened her something to allow the guy put his something.

      Did they kill anybody? Two adults indulged in foolishness and no one is congratulating them. People have condemned the act and here you are throwing accusations of hypocrisy.
      It’s a sad day when you cannot defend your religion. It is the only bloody thing I see here.

    Eduro o, what is this please? Adultry where? This guys of course did the wrong thing along with the wife however I don’t understand which one is penal code and charge! If that is the way the law is administered in that region it should be done so consistently – how about the swathes of other adulterers all over the place or did I miss those stories.
