Mrs. Ajueze Obiorah, the woman, who was stripped and paraded naked in Aguleri, a community in Anambra State, after she was accused of killing her husband with sex has broken her silence.
SPY NIGERIA recalls that in a viral video, Mrs Obiorah was stripped and paraded naked in her village with the believed that her infidelity led to her husband’s death because it is a taboo in the area.
Speaking with The Niche, she revealed that she only allowed the said man allegedly involved in the escapade to ejaculate on her laps, without penetrating her.
Denying the allegation, she explained that the only such incident was when a man, reportedly sneaked into where she was lying down, outside her compound and tried to make love to her.
Narrating that the said man came after her husband who had gone inside, slept off, explained that she declined the illicit advance after the man started caressing her, adding that not only did she oppose the advance, but warned him to stop, on the ground that she is a married woman whose husband would not be happy to see indulge in such act with another man.
However, the said man, was said to have persisted, prompting her to stand up in anger and went in to join her husband in the bed, leaving only the man outside, until he eventually left.
She added: “Another day, that same man came again, now inside the room, where I was about sleeping after I had taken my bath, tied only wrapper and lied down to sleep. And when he came, he started doing the same thing he did the other again, which I also angrily kicked against.
“After I had warned him to stop that and leave my room before my husband would come back and meet him there, which would change the whole narrative; he pleaded with me to allow him to ‘release just once in-between my legs’, which he eventually lured me into doing, after pestering me on that for a very long time. And after that, he left.”
It was after this that she claimed that her husband fell sick, and was taken to various herbalists, who all said the cause of his problem was from his family; except one herbalist known as Nnaeleatu, who said that he was poisoned and questioned why he would allow himself to be poisoned, knowing fully well that he was a public man.
It was Nnaeleatu, who admitted and started treating him in his house, she said, adding that after a while he also started responding to treatments, to the extent that he was almost perfectly healed, before the story changed.
Hear her: “That evening, I was told to go home to prepare and bring food for my husband to eat, and I left to get the food. When I came back, I saw that my husband had been brought outside from inside where he was before. I also noticed that he was now breathing abnormal and no longer smoothly as it was when I left. Then one of the men there suggested we called the herbalist to come home and administer treatments to him.
“When the man came and finished treating him, he said he would perform a divination to reconfirm the actual cause of my husband’s ailment. And after performing some divinations, he said my husband’s problem was as a result of my extramarital affairs.
“Later, the he (the herbalist) called me and accused me of keeping extramarital sexual relationship with another man, and questioned why I did so. I told them everything that happened between me and that man. But he still insisted that I was befriending the man, which I still told him I didn’t.
“He told me they would summon Ndị ichie to make a pronouncement with ọfọ, which they did.
“As we were there, my husband said he wanted to go home, and told me to join him on the motorcycle. I and his siblings who were there told him to wait so that we would call a bike man to ride us home, as he was very sick to ride a motorcycle. He listened and waited.
“But after a short while, he stood up again and insisted he would ride himself home alongside one of his siblings. He then told me to look for another bike and be coming back since I didn’t want to go with him. Then he went again and mounted on the motorcycle and started it to go; but the motorcycle refused to move.
“As this was going on, one of his siblings and I went to him again, held the motorcycle and started begging him to come down due to his serious health challenge. While we were persuading him to come down from and leave the motorcycle, one of his siblings, known as Goddy, who was drunk with ‘kaị kaị’ then rushed to that place with anger and started beating my husband and hitting him hard on his chest as though to force him to leave the motorcycle and wait for Okada.
“I was then baffled and unhappy with the way he was hitting and beating him, considering his very pitiable health condition. When I attempted to stop him, he threatened to descend on me if I dared touch him again. The threat did not make me give up in making him to see reasons to stop beating my husband. And he then descended on me and started beating both of us (me and my husband).
“It was in the process of this incessant beating that my husband slumped, started gasping for air and struggling to breath, till he eventually died there on the ground.”
She acknowledged that she made a mistake by not telling her husband about the sexual advances, made by the said man, saying however, that the husband’s kinsmen threatened to take her to Ajaani Ukwu shrine to swear that she was not dating the man, which she said she agreed to do.
At the said shrine, instead of allowing the process, she said the people started forcing her to confess and accept that she was dating the man, to avoid them beating her to death, adding that after much pressure, she unwillingly acceded out of compulsion.
Thereafter they came out from the shrine that the women of the village grabbed her and stripped her naked, while people surrounded and started molesting and making videos of her, which were eventually posted on various social media platforms.
On her marital life, she revealed that she would no longer wish to remain in the eight-year old relationship, which produced no child, as her only child (daughter) was late now, adding that the kinsmen of her late husband also forced her to make a covenant that she would never remarry another man in her entire life, which she refuse to accept.
Obiorah, a hairdresser, said she would like to relocate to somewhere else and venture into her hairdressing business, as she no longer wishes to stay in that area.
