Man Beaten To Death For Allegedly Sleeping With A Married Woman

There was serious confusion at Alayi, a community in the Bende area of Abia State, last Wednesday, following the death of a middle-aged man identified as Emma Orji, who was accused of committing adultery with a housewife in the area. It was gathered that the housewife had left her husband’s house under the guise of going on a brief visit to her parent, but she was found having sex with Orji days after she left home.

According to sources from the community, adultery is a sacrilege in Alayi and it attracts punishment including flogging the man in question in public. It was learnt that some angry youths from the community allegedly whisked Orji away for punishment, but he was found dead the following day.

Irked by Orji’s death, some of his relatives and friends invaded the home of a resident, who was believed to have spearheaded the killing of the deceased.

The relatives of the deceased were said to have set the resident’s home on fire, also burnt his car and some household items.

A native of the area, who pleaded anonymity, told Southern City News that the tradition only permitted some level of punishment to anyone found in the act, but not killing the person.

The father of the deceased, Elder Orji, who lamented the gruesome murder of his son by hoodlums, has called on the Abia State Government to ensure that his killers were fished out and made to face the appropriate sanction under the law.
