•The petitioner, Mrs. Onyinye Obi Vivian

 By GARBA MUHAMMAD

Mrs. Onyinye Obi Vivian, a resident of Onugu Ibagwa, Abakpa Nike area of Enugu State, has petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, over alleged threat to her life and the children in her 16-year-old marriage to a journalist, Mr. Petrus Obi, and his suspected mistress, Mrs. Chibota Edozie.

In the two-page petition dated Wednesday, December 16, 2020 and received on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at the IGP office, Force Headquarters, Louis Edet House, Abuja, titled, ‘Threat to Life/SOS’, Mrs. Obi alleged that for the past six years, her husband’s alleged mistress, Mrs. Chibota Edozie, has made her house “a living hell” for her and her four children.

She complained: “Not only has she (Mrs. Edozie) effectively taken my husband away from his once happy wife and children, the woman has taken her antics to another level with several direct threats to terminate my life and those of my children.

“For clarity purposes, my husband is Mr Petrus Obi, a journalist with an Online platform and we both have four children, while his mistress, Mrs. Chibota Adam Edozie, is also a journalist, a married woman with four children. She works with National Light Newspapers, published by the Anambra State Newspaper Publishing Company in Akwa.

“At several times, she (Mrs Edozie) confronted me directly that no matter what I do, nothing will separate her from my husband, Petrus. She also warned me to stay clear of her affairs with my husband or face the dire consequences which she clearly said will be my death.

“Apart from physical threat, Chibota (Mrs. Edozie) has also adopted several diabolical ways of ensuring that I quickly breathe my last. What is my offence? I asked her to let my family be. Their affair is public knowledge in Enugu and environs.

“It has become so painful that for the past two and a half years, I’ve not had any marital bliss with my husband. (He has not had any carnal knowledge of me) to the extent that recently when I reported the matter to the Women Aid Collective (WACOL), a pro-women Civil Society Organization, based in Enugu, to my surprise, my husband asked for divorce, making it clear that himself and Chibota, another man’s wife had become inseparable.”

Mrs. Vivian informed the IGP that she can no longer bear the life-threatening harassment and intimidation by her estranged husband, Petrus Obi and his suspected mistress, a married woman Mrs. Adam Edozie.

“I am appealing to you Sir to use your good offices to ensure my safety and the safety of my children. We now live in fear. I am also very convinced that by the time this petition goes public, they might eventually kill or maim me. Please Sir, you need to save our souls.

“It may also interest you Sir to know that the duo have equally engaged in sustained battle against other innocent people.

“I am in the know that my husband and his mistress, Chibota (Mrs. Edozie) have engaged the services of several witch-doctors and so-called prophets to either kill one Mr. Chris Isiguzo, the present National President of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) or better still disgrace him out of office.”

According to the aggrieved woman, “They have conspired to propagate several baseless allegations against him (NUJ President), including court actions and petitions before anti-graft agencies. All these have one objective, to paint him in bad light before right thinking members of society.

“I plead with you Sir to quickly intervene and by so doing, save several innocent people from either being diabolically killed, maimed or disgraced.

“What initially started as mere politics within their union has long snowballed into bitter war that if care is not taken will degenerate to an irredeemable level.”

On her reason for the petition, Mrs. Obi said: “I am constrained to officially petition your office about a major threat to my life, the lives of my children and perhaps other innocent people.”

She went further to provide her husband and his alleged mistress, Mrs. Edozie’s telephone numbers to the police, even as she accused the two of also engaging in unholy acts against innocent people for their selfish aims.

Mrs Obi in the petition, copied to the Commissioner of Police in Enugu State; Area Commander, Enugu; and the media, expressed the hope that the police will stop her husband and his suspected mistress from their “atrocious track”.
