The complainant alleged that his wife had an intimate relationship with the other accused persons who each had sex with her on different occasions and at different venues.

They were, however, given an option  of  N150, 000  fine each.

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

The Prosecutor, Insp Emmanuel Danladi, had told the court that one Abdulmajeed Akin of Tunga, Minna, reported the matter at the Tudun Wada Police Station on April 28.

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

He said that some of the accused persons were said to have 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.

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 three years imprisonment  each or a fine of N150, 000 each.

He, however, ordered the complainant’s wife to  pay a fine of N10,000 only.

The judge  also ordered the other five  accused  to each pay a compensation of N100,000 to the complainant.
