Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a couple after the wife, Tomisin Onyeokweni, allegedly stripped her husband’s ex-lover.
The incident happened in the presence of Tomisin’s husband, Osas.
The couple allegedly lured the 20-year-old victim into an uncompleted building, where the wife, who was armed with a pair of scissors, cut her dress into pieces and left her naked.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said this in a statement on Monday.
Oyeyemi said Tomisin, with the help of her husband, also inserted a bottle in the victim’s private parts.
He added that the victim incurred Tomisin’s wrath for being her husband’s lover before they got married.
The police spokesperson said the couple were arrested following a complaint by the victim, who reported at the Agbara Divisional Headquarters that Osas called her on the phone to meet him somewhere in the Lusada area for an important discussion.
He added that the couple also took photographs of the victim’s naked body and threatened to upload the pictures on the Internet if she dared to report it to anybody.
Oyeyemi said the suspects admitted to committing the crime and regretted their actions.
