NYSC Member Returns Home After Service; Finds Wife Pregnant For Best Friend (Photo)

Corps member returns home three months to the end of national service to find his new wife pregnant for his best friend

Linus Oota, Lafia

No

young man or old man would pray to be in the shoes of Elias Audu. The

accursed fate that has befallen him is terrible and a huge blow to his

ego.

Last year, one month before he reported at the NYSC camp in

Osun State, Audu had married his young wife. The graduate of Nasarawa

State University Keffi, an indigene of Keana Local Government Area of

the state, then patriotically proceeded to Osun State where he is

presently serving his fatherland. In the meantime, the wife he wedded 10

months ago, Tessy, continues to live in their rented apartment in

Lafia. The native of Akwanga Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, a

Second Year diploma student at Nasarawa State Polytechnic, had embarked

on and completed a three-month industrial attachment.

The couple

agreed to put on hold pregnancy till he completes his national service

and return to Nasarawa to find a good job. Then they can turn their

attention to the critical matter of giving his aged and anxious mother a

grandchild. Now, three months to the end of his national service,

Audu’s world came crashing down. He returned home last week to find his

wife pregnant. Guess who impregnated his wife: His best friend.

The crisis before marriage

Audu, still dazed by shock, recounts the sequence of events leading to the scandal in an exclusive chat with our correspondent.

His

narration: “I got married 10 months ago to my wife after we resolved

our differences due to my discovery that she was going out with someone

else. Initially, I did not intend to go into a serious relationship

after that discovery I mean, I was so much in love with her only for her

to have jilted me. I vowed never to have any serious relationship with

any woman until after my service year. But we got over the episode. She

convinced me and proved to be a different woman. She loved me genuinely,

and despite my resolve, I found myself falling in love with her again.

It began gradually and with time, I could not do without her. She made

me forget the past. In no time, all I could think of was to be with her

for the rest of my life.”

The pressure to marry

“The

pressure to get married from my old mum was overwhelming. My father had

put pressure on me to get married and bear him grandchildren before his

death. Unfortunately, he died six years ago without seeing my children.

Being the only son in the family, my mother understandably also put me

under pressure, that her time is almost up in this world and she would

want to see me bear children before her final exit. That was the

pressure that pushed me into getting married before my NYSC. When I took

her to meet my mother, she fell in love with her on the spot and told

me she was the very woman who would give her grandchildren. We got

married soon after and look forward to a happy family with our kids. But

we both agree that she will not “take in” until after my service year,

little did I know that the devil would use my best friend to destroy my

home.”

The man who got her pregnant

“I grow up

together with Mike Agu in Keana. We are childhood friends. We attended

the same primary school and also the same secondary school, Government

Science School Lafia. He was fortunate to have gotten admission into the

university before me. Nonetheless, we were very close friends. When I

joined him at the university the following year, we were like brothers.

Our relationship grew beyond ordinary friendship.

“When my name

came out for the 2018 Batch B NYSC, I proceeded to Osun State

immediately. My wife could not visit me in Osun because three of us who

are corpers lived in one room. There was no need for her to come around

since accommodation will be a problem her coming around means I have to

rent my own apartment which is beyond my means. Since I did not have the

means, I decided she should not visit. I was not happy to leave my new

wife all alone for one year, but she was equally in school and we needed

to understand ourselves; more so, with my close friends and relations

in Lafia, I felt she was in safe hands.

“While in Osun, I kept

in touch with her as much as I could. My friends I spoke and chatted

with also told me she was doing great. I had told Mike Agu, who was the

closest to me, to always check my rented apartment in Lafia to see that

my wife was doing well. Mike had finished his service year and was

teaching in a private school in Lafia. How could I have known that I was

putting my wife in harm’s way?”

The shocking discovery

“Throughout

this year, I have not visited home due to the tight schedule of my

duties at my place of primary assignment. My last visit was in November

2018. I had got some break and decided to visit home again. I arrived

home with so much joy. The first warning sign was when I got to the park

and my wife was not around to welcome me as usual.

“It was her

next-door neighbour that came to welcome me at the park. Even Mike, my

friend, whom I have been communicating with since I left Osun State, was

nowhere at the park. When I asked why my wife was not at the park, her

neighbour told me she was not feeling too well and they advised her to

stay at home. I did not buy that explanation but I kept quiet and could

not wait to get home. When I got home, I met the shock of my life. There

stood my wife with a protruding stomach.

I was transfixed,

trying to recall if there was any time she told me she was pregnant, but

I could not remember any. Her neighbour was in an unusual hurry to

leave. After her departure, I asked my wife what was going on. She broke

down and confessed that Mike seduced her, they had sex and the

pregnancy resulted. As for Mike, I have not called him since I came back

home. I leave him to his conscience.”

My dilemma

“When

I visited my mother in the village, she was so happy that her son’s new

wife is pregnant. The news has reached her! My mother believes that I

am responsible for the pregnancy. She is not aware of the arrangement we

had to wait until after my NYSC programme. I am still in shock and

confused about what to do at the moment. But one thing I know is that

she can’t be my wife again and forever. I want her to take the decision

herself instead of waiting for me to push her out. I am not even going

to tell my mother. From here, I am going back to Osun State and I will

not come back to Nasarawa State until after my passing out. I intend to

settle down in Abuja or Lagos to look for something doing. Between me

and her, it is over. I will move on with my life.”

Tessy’s story

When

our correspondent contacted Tessy after her lectures at the

Polytechnic, she burst into tears wailing that what ought to be a family

secret (and hopefully settled internally) has been exposed to the media

by her husband.

“I had never cheated on my husband since I got married to him,

I

never even contemplated it, but the temptation of sex pushed me into

it. I consider it the devil’s work. I am a victim,” she cries.

Tessy

makes a clean breast of it: “The truth is that before I got married to

him, I had four abortions from unwanted pregnancies, and I almost lost

my life in the last abortion. The doctor warned me not to do abortion

again, that it might damage my womb. I can’t explain actually how

Mike, his closest friend, find his way into me. He actually lured me to

his house after an outing. And truly, he was good in bed, which

attracted me to make it regularly.

“Mike was so good in bed he

soon wiped the memories of my husband’s touch from my mind. I lost

control of myself. We had sex every day after he closed from work. I

always joined him after I closed from my place of work where I was doing

my IT. We had sex daily, including weekends for two months; I soon

forgot that I was actually a married woman.

“As the second

month, I began to notice changes in my body. I later found out from a

test that I was more than a month pregnant. I told my neighbour that I

had been doing it with Mike all these while. She asked me the way

forward, and the answer till date is difficult because I didn’t want to

lose either my life or womb due to another round of abortion; this child

might be my last opportunity.

“For several weeks, I slept and

thought over it; I was in turmoil, I never knew what to do, because how

will my husband react to this when he got to know after we both agreed

to hold ourselves until he completes his service? On the other hand, I

prayed to God that when he eventually knows, he should allow me to keep

the pregnancy because it might be my last opportunity to have a child.

At the moment I am not prepared to abort it. So, I am waiting patiently

for his decision.

So what about Mike Agu, who put her in the family way?

“He

has left Lafia to an unknown place since he discovered that my husband

is back,” Tessy says. “And since the sad development, his two lines have

not been going through. I can’t reach him.”

Currently, she is

distressed, at a crossroads. Says she: “ I don’t know what to do, I am

waiting for his (Audu’s) final decision on me. But I have told my

parents to seek a loan to pay my husband back his pride price. I know I

have disappointed him, but I am pleading with him to forgive me.”

Mike Agu, the villain

An

effort was made to reach Mike Agu, the man who got his friend’s wife

pregnant, for his own side of the story. Eventually, our correspondent

got to him through the Vice Principal of the school where he is a

teacher.

Without mincing words, Agu blames Tessy for the misadventure.

Here

is his response: “The girl demanded sex from me after I took her out;

she actually begged for it and temptation overtook me. When she made it a

regular thing without contraceptive, I raised the issue of pregnancy

but she said she knows when to get pregnant and that she doesn’t enjoy

sex with a condom.”

He is nonetheless ashamed of his conduct. “I

feel so ashamed and disappointed with myself,” he laments. “This matter

will linger long in our village and it will affect the cordial

relationship between myself and Elias, including our parents. It is too

bad that the devil has used me. I don’t know how to apologize to him. I

have betrayed his trust and confidence in me. May God forgive me of my

sins.”
