A man reportedly divorced his newly married wife because she was moaning while being raped by armed robbers in his presence.
The incident occurred when armed robbers visited the couple, just few months after they came back from their village where they had conducted their traditional marriage.
According to report, the gunmen invaded their house around 3a.m and demanded money but the Benue State-born man allegedly told the gunmen that he had only N3,500 at home. He pleaded with the robbers that he did not have much money at home since he had expended all his savings on marrying his new wife and they were just trying to settle down.
The robbers however, got angry that the man did not have much money at home, and decided to gang-rape his wife at gunpoint.
When the robbers left, he was said to have raised hell, accusing his wife of enjoying the rape by moaning in excitement and twisting her waist as the robbers sexually assaulted her, instead of screaming for help.
“Imagine my wife, instead of her to cry for help, she was busy making some funny sounds, an indication that she was enjoying the sex, even in my presence,” he said to his neighbours.
The commercial bus driver, however, ordered the woman out of his house on the ground that she disgraced him, as it is against the customs of his community for a married woman to have sex with another man.
