The two were dragged before elders of the community for hearing .
The Mmaratohene of the community, Nana Yaw Amenyenu, who presided over the matter said this is the third time the suspect has been accused of such an offence.
He said the elders will meet and prescribe sanctions in line with the Akan taboos and culture and then hand the suspect over to the Police.
Speaking to the media, the husband of the cheating wife, popularly known as Small Baya, said he has been suspecting his wife, with whom he has three children, of infidelity for over a month before he caught her in the act.
However, a sister to the woman, Nafisa, said her sister has been lamenting that the husband does not take good care of her, compelling her to have extra marital affairs .
