A prominent church in Delta state has expelled its choir master (names withheld) over infidelity.
The pastor of the church disclosed this to journalists after the wife of the Choir Master poured acid on a girl suspected to be a girl friend of her husband.
The 43-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly bathing a female rival with acid at a hotel in Asaba where her husband and the female rival were believed to have had intercourse .
Prior to the incident, the husband who is a choirmaster in a popular church was rumoured to be sleeping with various church members.
The pastor in charge of the church, who spoke to journalists on condition of anonymity, said there have been series of accusation as regards premarital affairs with female church members by the husband of the suspect, adding that upon investigation, the church planned on expelling him.
According to him: “We were just planning to expel the suspect’s husband when the bubble burst. By this he can no longer serve as a choirmaster of the church again.”
Before the pastor arrived the scene, there was mild drama at a well-known hotel in Asaba, Delta after a woman reportedly bathed a female rival with acid for sleeping with her husband.
According to reports, the 43-year-old housewife committed the act at the hotel where her husband and the lady had intercourse.
A senior police officer at the station who confirmed the news of her arrest to the journalists, revealed that the housewife (names withheld) confessed to the committing the crime.
In her statement, she stated that the girl “failed to steer clear of her husband after several warnings”.
It was later gathered that the husband who is a choirmaster, was known for his philandering activities since he became choirmaster of the popular church and it had become alarming, particularly among teenage and unmarried girls whom he often took to the hotel.
DSP Andrew Aniamaka PPRO in the state revealed: “The woman said she caught the husband with the girl in the hotel after they may have had sexual intercourse, and at the gate she poured acid water on her body”.
