Photos: 70-year-old Widow Caught Having Sex With Young Man Banished From Community In Ebonyi State
A well respected 70-year-old widow in Amauzu Nkpoghoro village, Afikpo, in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, has been banished from the community for allegedly having sex with a man said to be 30 years.
The woman identified simply as Maria was caught by her granddaughter while she was having sex with her boyfriend in her matrimonial bed.
She was said to have immediately raised the alarm, alerting villagers, who dragged Maria and her lover out and paraded them around the village. She was subsequently banished from the community.
One of the villagers, Egwu Azubuike, who spoke to Daily Sun said the woman would have faced greater punishment if her husband were still alive. He noted that the act had brought shame to the widow’s family, adding that she was among the most respected women in the community before the incident.
Daily Sun gathered that it was a taboo for a widow to make love on her late husband’s matrimonial bed. It was, however, learnt that the community’s custom demands that any woman who does that must appease the gods with three goats before she could be readmitted to the community.
