A member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Bonaventure Okeke, has been arraigned before Gudu Upper Area Court in Abuja on Monday for allegedly committing adultery.

The plaintiff, husband to Chinenye, said the defendant, knowing that he was legally married to Chinenye, committed adultery with her on December 18, 2014.

He said the defendant repeatedly committed adultery with Mrs Anozie despite his warnings. He explained that the act wounded his “heart beyond measure”.
The defendant pleaded not guilty.
The judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, admitted Okeke to bail in the sum of N100,000 and one surety in like sum and adjourned the case till August 30 for hearing.
