A man suspecting his wife of cheating on him has found himself in the grips of the law after he allegedly beat the wife and stabbed her in the private part with a broken bottle.

Accusing the 27-year-old wife, Faith, of sleeping with a teenage boy who works for him, Victor Ojiaku, an automobile parts dealer, attacked the mother of three at their home in White Sand, Isheri-Osun in Lagos State. 

According to a report by LIB, Faith was kept locked up for two days by Victor, making it impossible for her to call any family member or friend for help or seeking medical attention.

When she was eventually allowed to seek medical attention, she used a doctor's phone to call her sister who informed the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, who took up the case and charged the suspect for court.

The suspect has been granted bail by the Ejigbo Magistrates’ Court adjourned the case to the end of January.

He is also facing charges for attacking his teenage worker whom he accused of sleeping with his wife.
