A report by The Nation indicates that police have begun an investigation over the fight between a former governor of Imo state, Ikedi Ohakim, and his alleged woman-friend, Chinyere Amuchienwa.
Legit.ng gathered that the ex-governor at some point told the police the woman assaulted him inside a hotel room in Abuja.
The woman, who is from Imo state, lives in Lagos where she deals in luxury items.
Ohakim said the woman had “a close and trusting relationship with him” and that he would not reveal all the “lurid” details about their relationship.
Amuchienwa had claimed that her quarrel with Ohakim was about some money he owed her.
She also accused the former governor of defrauding her over a piece of land and carting away designer suitcase, bags, shoes and other luxury goods from her shop in Lagos, which he has allegedly refused to pay for.
But Ohakim said he did not defraud Amuchienwa of N500 million or purchased any goods or other chattels from her valued at N110 million.
In a statement by his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor, the former governor denied being arrested over Amuchinwa’s petition to the police.
He said: “It was Ms Amuchinwa that was arrested, detained and then granted administrative bail. The matter over which she was arrested (assault of Dr Ohakim) is pending commencement of court arraignment.
Ohakim said when he could no longer bear Amuchinwa’s antics, he petitioned the Inspector-General of Police on January 20.
He said the police requested for further information/evidence, which he supplied.
Ohakim said it was after he had filed his petition that Amuchinwa – as an afterthought – filed a counter-petition on July 8.
“So, it is easy to understand the motive behind the false allegations she made in her petition. Thus, her overall credibility should, therefore, be judged on this score.
“Perhaps the most striking truth is that the said Amuchinwa had from 2019 (when she started this whole saga) to as recently as 21st January through 27th March 2020 intermittently demonstrated contrition and proffered apologies to our client, both verbally and in writing," he said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Governor Uzodimma issued his first order and asked the tenures of three past heads of governments in the state be probed.
It was reported that those whose tenures were affected as a result of the order included Ohakim, his successor, Rochas Okorocha and Emeka Ihedioha, who until recently was in charge of the government in the state.
