A Minna Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday sentenced five men to three years imprisonment each after they pleaded guilty to adultery charges.
However, they were given an option of N150, 000 fine each.
The accused persons – 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 some of the accused persons allegedly 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.
