A woman allegedly committed suicide after her husband caught her cheating with another man, police in Nigeria said.

Lagos State Police said that they arrested a 33-year-old man for questioning after his wife was found dead in their home.

The man denied killing his wife, saying that she committed suicide because of her infidelity. Seun Alabi told investigators that his wife Bose, 27, swallowed poison after being caught having an affair with another man.

The couple has been married for more than seven years, and they had three children. According to the police investigation, Alabi used his wife’s phone to call a colleague before leaving for work.

Bose later called the same number, thinking it was the number of her lover, and asked him to meet her later in the day. The colleague was surprised by the call and hung up.

He also told Alabi about the call.

When the husband returned home from work, he confronted his wife, who initially denied the allegations but later admitted that she had an affair.

Alabi went to sleep on the couch, and when he woke up the next morning, he found his wife dead in the bedroom.
