A clergyman, Ekejiuba George, was on Tuesday, arraigned before a Magistrate’s Court in Gwagwalada, FCT, on charges of allegedly enticing a married woman.

Osinachi further alleged that the defendant would contact the complainant’s wife late at night, and sometimes, she would engage in conversations with him outside their home.

“The defendant and the complainant’s wife exchanges pictures of each other via their WhatsApp and has been spotted in some places at odd hours of the day.

“The defendant has been doing everything humanly possible to cause a breakup in the marriage between the complainant and his wife as he constantly incites the complainant’s wife against the complainant.

“In spite of the interventions of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) of Tunga Maje, the defendant has not stopped enticing the complainant’s wife and interfering in their marriage,” he said.

He said that the complainant seeks the court to compel the defendant to stop enticing his wife and interfering in his marriage.

Osinachi said that the offence contravened the provision of Section 389 of the Penal Code.
