Man, 39, arrested for raping friend’s wife in bedroom

A 39-year-old man has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping his friend’s wife on her matrimonial bed in Surulere, Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial capital.

The incident was said to have occurred last Monday at about 2:00 a.m.

It was gathered that the suspect allegedly burgled the apartment of the victim and unlawfully had sexual intercourse with her.

The victim disclosed that she was sleeping with her husband on the same bed in their apartment when she felt she was being made love to.

She said: “I was sleeping with my husband on the bed at about 2:00 a.m. when I felt somebody was making love to me.

“Initially I thought it was my husband, until when I unintentionally stretched my hand and touched my husband who was deeply asleep beside me.

“I immediately woke up my husband, who switched on the lights and he saw his friend having sex with me.

“It still baffled us how he broke into our apartment without us noticing,” she said.

The woman further stated that the man blamed his action on drunkenness.

“He claimed that he missed his way to his house because he was under the influence of alcohol,” she added.

The suspect was later arrested by police operatives from the Surulere division following a report lodged by the victim and husband.

The incident was confirmed by the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Idowu Adedeji.

However, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said he was yet to be briefed on the incident.
