The sad story of Chuks Okebata,The Nigerian US Army Veteran who was killed by robbers or kidnappers,(depending on what you follow)continues with more revelation.
Now, a video shared on Facebook by Ada Mbaeri,his sister,has got Nigerians talking and debating on how he could have met his death.In the tape,we see both couple arguing,she wants him out of the house and he said she was mad,that he was going nowhere because this is his house.
Soon she gets on the phone after threatening the hubby with jail.The eldest son of the warring couple then starts crying on realising his dad was going to leave the house.
He tries to console him and tells him he has to leave because their mum wants to send him to jail.He then tells the boy to tell their teachers what is happening in their home and they
The story is a sad one.Personally,i don't think he abused his wife as she has now revealed in her own version of events that she released on Facebook too.
She claims to have been abused by him constantly and him sending images of women he had been unfaithful with to her.Yes,he did that,but i don't believe he hit her.If he had done this in my opinion,those boys will not be crying so much when he was leaving.
Kids are very smart and they tell things just how they see it.Particularly,boys are close to their mums,if this man was a beast,those boys will not love him so much.
The US-based Okebata was abducted and assassinated in broad daylight in Lagos on the 12th of January 2017 while he was home for the Christmas, New Year holiday.He had according to his wife been out in Nigeria spending money lavishly.Her saying this alone shows me this woman is cold.She also said her hubby shot back at the armed kidnappers,we don't know how far this is true.See THE VIDEO BELOW and also the wife's version... .
Ever since a video emerged on Facebook showing late Chuks Okebata and his wife engaged in a war of words after which she called the cops on him, people have been accusing Chuks' wife of having a hand in his death.
Chuks' wife has reacted to the damaging videos making the rounds by telling her side of the story. According to her, she called the cops on her husband for her own safety because Chuks constantly subjected her to physical abuse.
Read her story as told to Amanda Chisom below;
"My own side of the story
Amanda , I once came to you about my husband and his incessant abuse and cheating. Yes I am the wife of the man who was assassinated, and I am just distraught. I do not even know where to start but it is only right I tell my own side of the story. I am innocent, God is my witness that I did not kill my husband or the evil that my husband’s family is portraying me to be, yes my sister in-law posted that video to make me look evil but the part she did not tell anybody was that I was calling the police to save me because he always beat me up and I was told to call the police whenever he started and that was exactly what I was doing, from the video you would see that I did not fight him or answered him. Should I have allowed him to kill me?
Amanda, we have been married for 13 years since I was 19, it has been beating upon beating, I have gone through surgeries because of beating he gave me. How can I kill my husband, we live together, till the day he left for Nigeria, I packed his things , how could I kill him. Who do I know to order a hit on the father of my children? I have no interest in his properties as suggested after all we built every thing together. God knows I am innocent. He went to Nigeria and was going to club spraying dollars and showing off, revealing his locations . They want to pin my husband’s death on me, my husband was not assassinated. He was kidnapped, because he is a military man he is always with a gun and when he shot to death one of thekidnappers,they shot him. Why is my family leaving out information about what happened and pinning it on me?
I never threatened him to kill him, I am a working woman with a paying job and have no reason to kill him because of properties . All I just want is peace to mourn and raise my children. You can confirm my story from those people in my home town. My husband was careless in a country with high rate of crime and was kidnapped, if he had not shot one of the robbers all we would have been talking about is paying ransom not death. Amanda why would I kill the father of my kids, why would I choose his death over a divorce if things were that bad. I have two boys, who will help me raise them? I am completely innocent of all the allegations. I have endured all this years through his beating and cheating and I did not leave or kill him, why would I do it now? All I ask is that I am left to mourn in peace and the killers found and prosecuted.
Nne biko help me
I’m an innocent victim here
I love my husband and I’m still in tears
I’m mourning him and people are accusing them wrongly.My children are crying daily."
In another Facebook post, Amanda Chisom confirmed that the widow had indeed shared evidence with her last year that her husband was cheating on her openly and also abused her physically. In one, Chuks admitted to cheating on his wife and said he looked outside because he was never satisfied by his wife at home.
Now ,the interesting thing here is ,she indeed showed the pictures of the women he sent to her,but she didn't share a single picture of her abuse,or injuries.Isn't that perculiar?My take is she was angry that he humiliated with the other women and wanted him out!
