I just saw a post from a Facebook friend, who is frustrated by the fact that she keeps getting her husband's Instagram notifications appearing on her iPhone.
This started when he temporarily signed in to his Instagram on her device. Even though her device is now signed out of his account, the notifications continue to appear. She has tried deleting the app, changing notification settings, etc etc - all the no avail.
So, I have just done a quick check of online forums to see if there is a solution to this problem and have found a possible solution to try if you ever find yourself in this situation.
Stopping those notifications
What causes this problem?
From what I read, the problem is that the Instagram Push Server (which sends the notifications) has registered your phone as being connected to his account, so that is why you still get his notifications.
It is not something that you can fix by deleting the app or changing anything on your own phone - the Push Server needs to update itself with the correct device information. Hopefully, logging in on his own phone will solve this.

Hey Boroondara council!
What's with running an Instagram competition for children in primary school, when Instagram is not supposed to be used by children under 13?
I have even heard that you are asking primary schools in the area to promote this competition with the school's 8 to 12 year olds!
And that you are asking kids to make their Instagram accounts Public in order to enter the competition! Even worse!
We parents who are trying to keep our children off these social media platforms while they are still at primary school are fighting a losing battle when you promote competitions such as this.
It's this sort of thing that we talk about at the 'Parenting in this Digital Age' free morning tea gatherings, which will now feature regularly in the iTandCoffee calendar. Click here to find out when this next gathering is scheduled.
Update 27/11/14 ...
Apparently, an admin officer in the Youth Services area of the council mistakenly made the requests around the Booroondara community without vetting it with anyone. Unfortunately, the damage is probably already done.
