A Nigerian Woman, Nkeiruka Cynthia Kamalu, confesses on how a lawmaker, Uju Kingsley Chima, slept with her in 2015.
Chima is the Member, Federal House of Representatives for Ohaji/Egbema, Oguta and Oru West Federal Constituency of Imo State.
“We dated for 10 years, after which he proposed marriage and we both agreed to settle down as husband and wife. Unfortunately, our parents kicked against our relationship on the ground that we are biologically related and that we were committing incest and could not get married, so I married another man called Gabriel Igbibi,”
“I lodged the case first at New Owerri Police Station wherein he influenced it and I wrote a Petition to the Inspector-General of Police, Force State Quarters, Abuja. The petition was assigned to Zone 9 Police Command, Umuahia, Abia State”
“Chima settled the police and they made peace between Himself and I, wherein he promised to take proper care of me because he cannot withdraw himself from me.
“My husband got wind of the relationship between the Chima and myself,” following which he filed for divorce.
“Chima promised that if the divorce succeeds, he will be giving me N20 million every six months and also buy me a property in any designated place in Lagos.
“The marriage was dissolved at the Ikeja High Court, Lagos. After the divorce, Chima told me that before he will take the relationship serious, I will have to bear a child for him.”
“I took in for him, but had a miscarriage. He then asked Me to adopt a baby which would be his and claim that the baby was born in Canada, but that the baby also died”
“I sworn to an oath of loyalty, but eventually caught him with another woman”
“I became infuriated and he became furious and warned me never to visit him again, that he is no longer interested in the relationship. I reminded him of the oath he forced me to take that no man must have any relationship with me again and the promise to be giving N20m every six months, buy me a property in a choice area, buy a brand new car every six months, which he had never fulfilled.
“I told him that I would tell the whole world how he has ruined my life and deceived me out of my marriage where I had four children.” and used the police to arrest me on May 27, 2019 and detained for seven days and arraigned on a fictitious N40million theft charge.
The lawmaker denies that Kamalu was ever pregnant for him. He insisted that she lied that she had a baby for him in Canada through In vitro fertilization (IVF) and demanded that he send her $45,000.
Now, you are a man, let me ask you a question: somebody that said you raped her in 2015, and in 2018, the same person came and said she had birth (sic) for you: Is it possible?
“The same person that said you raped her in 2015 came back in 2018 and said you asked her to go and adopt a child for you: is it possible?
“This girl came up on 12th of December that she was pregnant. I said ‘did I impregnate you?’ She said ‘No’, that she did IVF. I said ‘I have never had anything, I have never had intercourse, how could you now come up to say I impregnated you? How? Is it by air?’ She said she did IVF. Because she knew I was running an election the next month, that was in February. She wanted to extort money from me through that means.”
She attached a purported Lagos State Government issued death certificate.
“When I couldn’t hold it, I personally went and reported to the police: ‘Look at what is transpiring.’ The police, on its own, went into investigation, discovered, not even me, discovered, I didn’t know that she bought a child in Enugu and the child died in Lagos.”
“So, you can see the level of fraud that she has been perpetrating. All her statements are evidenced, even in the courts she stood in the dock and was saying all of these things. That was in Owerri. The magistrate was so angry and remanded her. They released her this month or last month only for her to tell a story that I raped her.
“This lady has been doing this. Trying to use that way to extort money from me and when I realised her mischievous attitude, the matter was reported to the police and the police went into investigation. It was the police that even discovered that this lady even bought a child in Enugu, trying to use the child to cover up the pregnancy she said she lost, because she said she was pregnant, when she was not.
“She wasn’t pregnant, she claimed I should pay her, is it $45,000? That she had the child in Canada, twins. She was using a Canadian line to call. She even forged a visa, a Canadian visa, that she was in Canada already, that I should send money to her in Canada.
“Where will I get $45,000 to send to her? I quickly ran to the police, but before then I had already reported her to the SSS (State Security Service) for fraud, but because I was running an election, they said I should play along so that I can have tangible things against her, which happened.”
“I can confidently tell you that this girl is a serial fraudster and serial liar. I do not in any way have any agreement of buying any house for this girl. I do not in any way have an agreement of giving her N20 million every six months. If she has any evidence that I made an agreement to give her a house, she should show where the agreement was written.
“The police in Owerri are investigating her and what she is trying to do is to divert attention, that’s what she is trying to do. Her matter is in court, the child trafficking case is in court in Owerri. One is in Magistrates’ Court Owerri, one is in High Court Owerri.
“So, running down to Lagos to go and file a fundamental rights suit. It’s ridiculous and, mind you, I’m a politician and my political opponents too are at work.”
