A 30-year-old private driver, Emeka Osuh has been dragged before an Ejigbo Magistrates’ court in Lagos, accused of stealing N900,000, after he was caught having sex with his employer’s wife.
While the employer reportedly sent his wife packing, he also sued the driver for misconduct.
The incident happened at Awolowo Way in Ikeja area of the state.
According to a report in the P.M. Express, the employer who owns a beverages company employed the suspect as private and company driver for distribution of goods to customers.
According to the report, the employer from Edo State married his wife who is from Anambra and they had a child before the incident happened.
The husband’s constant travelling allegedly caused his wife’s misbehaviour as she was said to be lonely and found solace in Osuh who usually came to sleep with her in the house when her husband was not around.
The husband, who had suspected their moves, deliberately came back early in the morning unexpectedly, entered their bedroom but did not find his wife.
He then went to the guest house where the driver usually slept and met his wife and driver there in bed.
He sent his wife back to her family while the driver was relieved of his job and charged to court.

The judge also ordered that he should be kept in prison custody pending perfecting his bail condition.
The matter was adjourned till 15th August 2017.
