IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu
Estranged wife of Enugu State Governor, Clara Chime on Friday opened up on her travails at the Enugu state government house where she was confined by her husband.
In an interview with Channels Television monitored by African Examiner’s correspondent, the embattled Enugu first lady, who has since left the coal city State of Enugu over a month ago, said she would rather prefer not to reveal all the ordeal she and her son went through in the hands of Chime.
African Examiner reports that Clara was recently in the news following alleged controversial case of insanity and her consequent of house arrest as ordered by her husband, Governor Chime.
Apparently becoming totally depressed, Clara, had no option than to raise the alarm via some members of the human right community and Lagos based legal luminary, Femi Falana, to save her from death.
The alarm however sparked off controversy in Nigeria and elsewhere, with several accusations and counter accusations flying around, most of which bothered on unlawful detention and domestic violence against the embattled first lady.
Speaking during the TV programme she said “I suffered from depression and the treatment I got from my husband led to it.”
She also thanked Nigerians for coming to her rescue, expressing her joy that she is “now liberated.”
Meanwhile, our correspondent gathered that plans have reached advance stage by the Chime’s family to reconcile the Governor and his first wife whom he parted ways with before becoming governor.
