The Alayi community in the Bende Local Government Area of Abia State was thrown to commotion last Wednesday, following the death of a middle-aged man identified as Emma Orji, accused of allegedly committing adultery with a housewife in the area.

According to Punch reports, the housewife had left her husband’s house under the guise of going on a brief visit to her parent’s village, but she was found copulating with Orji three days after she left her husband.

The Newspaper quoted sources from the community as saying that adultery is a sacrilege in Alayi and it attracts some punishment including flogging the man in question in public.
