A Nigerian court on Tuesday ordered a married woman to pay a fine of N10,000 and asked the five men who slept with her in her matrimonial home while her husband was away to pay a fine of N100,000 each to the husband of the woman.

The accused identified as Mohammed Faruk, Johnbosco Dedan, David Momoh, Sunday Ekuese and Vincent Emmanuel, were all arraigned alongside the woman identified as Naomi Abdulmajeed on a two – count charge of enticing a married woman and committing adultery.

The Prosecutor, Inspector Emmanuel Danladi, had told the court that the husband of the woman, Abdulmajeed Akin of Tunga, Minna, reported the matter at the Police Station on April 28.

Danladi quoted the complainant as alleging that his wife, Naomi, had intimate relationships with the accused persons who each had sex with her on different occasions and at different venues.

He said that some of the accused persons slept with complainant’ s wife in her matrimonial home.

The offences, he said, were contrary to sections 389, 387 and 388 of the penal code in Nigeria.

When the charges were read to the accused persons, they all pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The prosecutor thereafter asked the court to try them summarily in line with Section 157 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

He also prayed the court to order the accused persons to pay a compensation of N500,000 each to the complainant.

Counsel to the accused persons, Obi Alex , however, prayed the court to temper justice with mercy, given their admission without wasting the time of the court.

Delivering his judgment, the presiding magistrate, Mohammed Hassan, sentenced the accused persons to 3-year imprisonment each, or a fine of N150,000 each.

He, however, ordered the complainant’s wife to pay a fine of N 10,000 only, and also ordered the other five accused persons to each pay a compensation of N 100,000 to the husband of the woman.
