A 58-year-old woman, Nwazema Oluchukwu and 34-year-old Chizoba Alloy Njoku, who hail from Owerri, Imo state and were separately married with children to different men, were charged before Isolo Magistrate's court over Chizoba's husband, Alloy Benson Njoku.
PM Express gathered that while Chizoba married and live with Benson, Oluchukwu alleged that Benson was her lover who she introduced to Chizoba while she was married to her own husband.
She told the Isolo Magistrate's court that Benson and Chizoba were merely cohabiting despite the fact that they had three children because they did not contract any marriage as Christian or as Igbo culture demand.
It was gathered that Oluchukwu, a senior member in the church, decided to take Benson back when her own marriage reportedly crashed. But things turned to worse when Chizoba, who all along knew the relationship between Oluchukwu and Benson, decided to fight and hold on to Benson and this resulted in a street fight between them.
This resulted in both fighting publicly until a police patrol team passing-by stopped and arrested the two women and took them to the station.
They were charged before Isolo Magistrate's court for conduct likely to cause breach of public peace under the Criminal Code.
