A 43-year-old housewife, identified as Maureen Ndikwe, has been arrested by the Delta State police for allegedly bathing her husband’s mistress with acid.
Ndikwe is reportedly the wife of the choirmaster of a popular Pentecostal church in Asaba.
According to police sources, Ndikwe doused acid on her rival on Sunday evening at a well-known hotel around Infant Jesus area of Asaba where the husband and the lady reportedly had sexual intercourse.
WuzupNaija gathered that the choirmaster has been engaging in illicit affairs since he became the choirmaster of the church especially with teenagers and single ladies.

An eyewitness, Tony Ehrew, said Ndikwe emerged from the bush path to the hotel when the unsuspecting husband and the girl were moving towards the gate and doused the acid on her husband’s mistress.
However, during Ndikwe’s attempt to escape, she fell down and an angry mob descended on her before the police arrived the scene and took her away.
The pastor in charge of the church, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that there have been reports claiming that the choirmaster is a serial womaniser.
He said, “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.”
