A Kenyan man has been arrested after he tried to shoot his wife’s lover when he caught them having intercourse.
Police in Mtwapa, Kilifi County, have detained the man pending his arraignment in court.
According to DCI, the man whose name was not given, on Saturday afternoon trailed his wife from their home in Mtwapa to Tamaduni Gardens in Kilifi town, where he busted her with the 29-year-old lover having a good time in the car.
“He immediately reached for his czeska pistol and discharged one round in the air, ostensibly to scare and get hold of the young man who jumped out of the car and fled for his dear life.
“The suspect tried to stop the fleeing man who sprinted faster than a cheetah,” DCI said in a statement.
After the incident, the man surrendered turned himself over to the nearest police station where he was arrested and his firearm confiscated.
“Dejected, the suspect who unjustifiably used his firearm posing danger to other members of the public, presented himself at Kilifi police station where he is currently being processed for arraignment,” DCI said.
