“I did not kill my husband,” wife of US army veteran killed in Nigeria, breaks silence
The wife of Chuks Okebata reached out to blogger Amanda Chisom, whom she had earlier contacted when her husband was still alive. Back then, she sent her screenshots of his comments on Facebook, and the explicit pictures he sent to her.
Her reactions comes after her sister in law shared videos of her threatening to get her husband jailed. She wrote: “Amanda, I once came to you about my husband and his incessant abuse and cheating.
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.
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. 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.
I know who I am married to, he is a show off and he went to Nigeria and was going to club spraying dollars and showing off. 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 the kidnappers, they shot him.
Why is the family leaving out this information? I am a working woman with a paying job and have no reason to kill him because of properties. 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. Why would I choose his death over a divorce if things were that bad.
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? See pictures of my husband spraying dollars at the club in Owerri. He even live streamed it.”
