Man kills neighbor he caught in bed with wife

There was heightened tension yesterday at Abinse town, in Guma local government area
of Benue state, when a middle aged man, Benjamin Fakande allegedly hacked his
neighbour, one Jacob Unumbe, to death after he caught the deceased in bed with his
It was gathered from an eyewitness that Benjamin had been suspecting and
accusing his wife of infidelity but when he confronted her on the issue, she denied and
threatened to quit the marriage.
”The man had been accusing his wife of infidelity, but when the rumour became rife for
several weeks, the man decided to spy on the wife until he got proof that she was
actually having an affair outside her matrimonial home with the deceased.
”He was forced to confront the deceased whom he cautioned to stay away from his wife
because he was destroying his marriage, or be prepared to face the consequence of his
inglorious acts.
”But from all indications, the duo continued in the immoral act because the rumours
were all over the place and this further enraged Benjamin who also pleaded with family
members to prevail on his wife, but that did not also yield anything positive.
”Unfortunately Benjamin caught them in one of their escapades in a neighbour’s house.
At that point, the man became confused and grabbed a big stick and chased after the
two of them.
”He eventually caught up with Jacob and hacked him down, inflicting severe injuries on
his head after which he left him in his pool of blood.”
According to the witness, the cry of Mrs. Fakande attracted the attention of neighbours
who got to the scene of the attack and rushed the victim to a nearby hospital where he
was later pronounced dead.
It was gathered that the death of Jacob Unumbe angered his family
members who threatened reprisal attack on his killer but for the quick intervention of the
Divisional Police Office in Gbajimba, which arrest the suspect and ensured the
restoration of peace in the community.
Attempts to reach the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Superintendent Daniel
Ezeala on phone to confirm the incident failed, but a reliable Police source at the
Command headquarters confirmed the incident and arrest of the suspect adding that the
matter was already being investigated.
