Former chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) Lauretta Onochie has revealed how her cousin and his wife tried to dispossess her of her house in the United Kingdom.
Onochie, who also served in the government of ex President Goodluck Jonathan, in videos she shared on Twitter today, September 3, said that she had to gain entry into the house through the garden door when her cousin locked her out.
In the writeup titled: “WHAT A BATTLE, I RECOVERED MY HOME,” she said:
“My Cousin, Victor Ashiedu Fejokwu and his wife, Ruth Emereze were stranded, infact homeless at the time. I took pity on them, took them in, to house them in my home.
“A year ago, when I started making plans to return to continue housing them, they blocked my phone number. I had no access to my letters. Consequently, I missed quite a number of appointments.
“Having the key to the property, I turned up at the door, twice. They installed bolts and bolted the door from the inside and refused to let me in.
“They stopped contributing to the rent when they both have jobs, preferring to host lavish parties.
“I tried again for the last time. When I knocked, his wife sneaked from the garden into the house, to bolt the front door against me.
“Miraculously. Miraculously. She forgot to lock the garden door through where she sneaked into the house. I got access to the house through that door.”
Onochie said that they became nasty and when she called the police, they were dealt a “heavy blow” and told to vacate the house.
She said that they moved out days ago and they would reap what they did to her.
