A woman from Delta State who effectively hid her adulterous relationship from her husband, Lekan Onipede, is now on the run after she viciously attacked him with boiling water and pursued him with a knife. Naija News Rave as more:
The woman, Rosemary David, had a son for Onipede, a 31-year-old indigene of Ondo State, about 11 years ago, when he was 20. While still living with him under the concept of common law marriage, and in what would appear to be a case of polyandry, she allegedly hooked up with another man in Delta State and had two other children (a boy and a girl) with the man, and then passed them off as Onipede’s children.
Over the years, David perfectly juggled the two ‘husbands’ in Ondo and Delta states, co-habiting with one or the other in a near seamless manner until the bubble burst, and set the stage for the heinous attack on Onipede after accusing him of adultery. The tale began when David who was living with her parents in Ore, Ondo State, got into a relationship with Onipede and became pregnant.
With Onipede insistent on not allowing her abort the pregnancy, she dropped out of school and later gave birth to a baby boy. After the birth of the baby, Onipede relocated to Lagos to study at a technical school and also seek means of earning income to support David and the baby. While Onipede struggled to find his feet in Lagos, David alternated between living with her parents and Onipedes’ parents in Ondo State on the one hand and her aunt in Delta State on the other hand.
Two years later, Onipede completed his training at the technical school at Abule-Ado, Lagos State, got a job and then invited David to come and live with him. This began their ‘marital’ journey. A few weeks later, David informed him that she was pregnant. Quite upset with the news, Onipede expressed his displeasure, but promised to do his utmost to cater for the family.
