For some men, greed and the urge to sample what belongs to others will lead to their deaths. This scenario played out in Ikot Nakanda
community in Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross River State where it was reported that a man identified as Etefia , tasted the forbidden fruit of his best friend’s wife and got the shocker of his life when he got stuck inside the woman.
As the story goes, Etefia and Otuekong , both from neighbouring Akwa Ibom State, have been best of freinds and both related as brothers but unknown to Otuekong, his ‘brother’ was secretly sleeping with his wife , Ikwo.
The unholy affair had been going on for a while till nemesis decided to play the advocate when Etefia was found in the act with Ikwo.
According to a reader who sent the story to Pulse, the two men who are fishermen, had lived in peace till Etefia went beyond his bounds.
“It was a thing of shame and stranger than fiction. I am from Ikot Nakanda though i live in Lagos. It happened last month when I came home to hear how Etefia was found stuck inside Otuekong’s wife.
From what I gathered, Otu had gone on fishing in the Bakassi waters and in the night, Etefia sneaked into his house to have sex with his friend’s wife but in the morning, the neighbours heard cries coming from the home of Otu and on getting there and forcing the door
opened, they found Etefia on Otu’s wife, Ikwo. He
had been stuck in the woman.
They were said to be sweating profusely and crying for help. As no one could do anything, some men had to mobilise and go in search of Otu and after much pleading, he came with the men and it took pleas from village elders for him to get them entangled.
It turned out that he had planted a certain kind of ‘juju’ on his wife known as ‘ekpo nka awo’ on his wife when he suspected she was cheating on him.
He had to appease the gods before Etefia could
withdraw his manhood from the woman. From what I heard, without Otu appeasing the gods, the two adulterers would have died.
I heard that the elders listed certain things for Etefia to provide so as to cleanse the land. This is a lesson for men who loves sleeping with married women.”
This is not the first time such acts would be recorded as charms called ‘Magun’, Thunderbolt, is very powerful in the Yoruba land of the Western parts of Nigeria where men have been caught in its web.
