MY STORY AND ORDEAL
Narrating her ordeal,lady Blessing said,” I met my husband as a child when I was younger,he was always coming to my house and said this is my wife .
” We reconnected in 1989 and on the spot ,he said Chioma if you were still not married,I will marry you.
On January 6th ,1990 we officially married because we did the traditional wedding.He did not want me immediately to come to US because of the experiences he friends had in bringing their wives with them ,they were given visiting VISA and he preferred to file for me so that I can come over with my Green card which is permanent card.
” We agreed our plan was to do the wedding in US and when I got pregnant and the papers were staying to long ,we changed that plan and decided to do it in Nigeria.
” May 18th ,1991, 3 weeks to that wedding was when my husband called me and notified me that he picked up a son in America that I should not worry and I was obsessed because I felt betrayed because the information should have reached me before I agreed to marry him, I felt deceived, however my mother stepped in and told me that it was not a big deal since he never married the woman .
” Since the boy was 4 years ,I accepted this boy ,3 weeks to my marriage, because I married in my early twenties and my son Victor came July 20th 1991 and we lived together till February,28th ,1993, when my papers were out and I came over to US and because my first son was born in Nigeria ,my husband and Victor had to go to partnernity test at American embassy in Lagos that is the only way they gave him citizenship.
In that 1993,we came I had lived with this strange Son and my son .
What happened on December 28,2022 when my husband was laid to rest .
” On July 23 ,2022 I received a call from one of my husband’s cousins,he told me Aunty ,Dede is dead and I told him to rush him to hospital and he was confirmed dead.
” I returned to Nigeria and later left because the church had not agreed on the date of the burial the All Saints church.
” Few days that I went back to US ,Arch Decean informed me that the Bishop had given December 28,2022 as the burial date and I informed Amaechi and my children, and Amaechi said he would get back to me and he never did .
” I handed over the planning of the burial to them ,my children and Amaechi and I was not part of the planning.
” I did a service of song for my husband in US and the strange son Amaechi came with 8 men wearing masks to disrupt the service of song.
Few days we headed home,all we are receiving is threat , harassment ,there is no where he never threatened us,he threatened the church, community,the elder man,even arrested.
” On December 27 ,2022 ,we brought back the corpse of my husband and we stayed and prayed,all the traditional rites were done .
Our Decision to take him round the village before burial,the final day and how Ameachi came with thugs and exhumed the corpse
We made a decision to take him round the village and the burial held and he was laid to rest properly and every body was there and after dust to dust,the strange son came fully armed with thugs and hired youths and he exhumed the corpse.
” Our security was there, Vigilante was there and the community,they did not do nothing.
” The Eze of the community was there and tried his best but the strange son refused,Engr Enyinna Nwafor tried and he disagreed,the Eldest man tried and he refused.
” He exhumed the body and took it to an unknown place, probably for rituals.
” The community could not save us,the government that we ran to failed,the judiciary that I ran to get court order to bury my husband,their orders were not honoured,the police,we took the case to failed us ,so how can this happened in Abia state.
” The strange son chased us out of the house ,my husband and I built “
