July 31, 2016 – My Wife Is Mentally Unstable – Husband Of Aunt Who Chained Girl In Abeokuta Confesses, Says Suspect Needs Medical Help

Mr Sunday Okafor, the husband of the woman who allegedly chained a 10-year-old girl in Abeokuta few days ago has made an excuse for his wife’s actions.

Mr Okafor who begged for leniency claimed that his wife is battling partial insanity.

This is what he told The Sun yesterday;

“My wife has mental illness and I have been taking her to different church programmes to seek deliver­ance for her. I have been trying to hide this from people but the truth is that my wife has partial madness and, I have been taking her to different crusades since we got married in 2006.

As for Promise, she keeps stealing from us. Times without count, I have been to the police in Adigbe to report her to them but they keep advising me to manage the situation. I can tell you that she has run away from the house up to seven times. Even her teacher in school complains of same thing and punishes her for it. She attends Saint Benedict Primary School, here in Adigbe.”

“To start with, I never knew she was chained. My wife did. All along, we have been calling on her people in the village to come and pick her, but they kept telling us to hold on till a later date. When I came in the first day and saw that she was chained, I set her loose, but did not know my wife was going to chain her again the next day.

I was surprised when I got to the police station and was shown the picture of how Promise was chained. I just want everybody to know that I didn’t chain Promise. It was my wife. I am not the type that intimi­dates children. My biological children and even siblings can testify to that. I think she did it based on the thought that the girl may run away again, although I was never in support of that.”

A University undergraduate who lives in the area narrated how 10-year-old Promise Udeh was chained and starved by Chiamaka Okafor

Hear what 24-year-old Omotoyosi Odu told Saturday Sun;

“My fiancé lives in that house and I came to visit him on Tuesday, I was in his apart­ment when I heard the cry of the girl.

Another woman from the neighbourhood came out too and we both agreed that I should give the girl some food to eat. I did, and when the woman (Chiamaka) came back, she came to me and issued a stern warning to me never to repeat what I had done. I didn’t mind her. The next day, she still chained the girl in the arms and legs. At that moment, the girl saw me and said ‘Aunty, please give me food to eat’. But I was reluctant to heed her request, because the woman (Chiamaka) had warned me to steer clear of the girl.

Not too long after, I saw two men approaching our building and immediately, I sensed that they were policemen and that was how they arrested everyone they could lay their hands on and took us to Adigbe Police Station.”

    To say this woman is mad and all these while, no one knew apart from you and try to bribe our brains into thinking that she doesn‘t know what she‘s doing is nothing but a “White“ lie.

    If your wife is mentally unstable, as you want us to believe, why not lead her to take asylum in a psychiatric hospital?

    M concern now is for the innocent people that were arrested along with your jezebel of a wife. They has to be released pronto. And let your wife face the reggae she has set.

    I take a stroll…

    Well I understand you’re only trying to cover your wife from possible prosecution. Your wife is not mad and don’t forget that a test can be run in psychiatrist hospital to determine her mental condition. And I also believe this man is fully aware of what has being happening in that home. No doubt you are certainly going to be in for it. If at all you and your wife are going to win this case,something very huge would definitely be drop at the station to clear up what would have being the charges against you both. More importantly,this is a clear warning lesson to parents whose children are living with there so called trusted relatives to be careful. When they see you they will tell you all is well but in reality your child is being maltreated like a slave in there home secretly. Some may even try there best but the fact is they still cannot take care of your child as you do. So let’s be mindful of this and take care of our children ourselves.

    This man is clearly lying thru his teeth, how can u tell us u are not aware that ur wife chained d poor girl, if ur wife is mentally unstable like u claimed, I am sure ur neighbours would av testified to that.
    Why is she not treating her own children d way she is treating that girl, I mean what sort of stupid excuse is that, a mentally challenged person will not differentiate one person to another bcos in her head she wouldn’t knw what she is doing.
    So mr man stop giving lame excuses so as to get out of d trouble u av brought upon urself.

    True confession! Your wife is really mad but you are not telling the whole truth. How can you not know she was chained when you released her from the chains the previous day and with your admission about your wife’s mental state you did not suspect she will chain the girl again. You also did not bother to check and ensure she was alright after you unchained her? Is that how you treat your own children?
    The girl stole from you always yet you did not return her to her parents but rather telephoned that the parents come and take her from your house. I think the actual story is that the girl does chores around your house and you did not want the inconvenience of losing her services and thus continued to keep her in your house.
    Return the child to the parents since you cannot protect her from your wife.

    Police in Nigeria can hardly change. Instead of enquiring for the person that chained the young girl,they were only interested in arresting every Dick and Harry so that bail morning will increase. Shameless people!

    If its true that the girl is a criminal, something serious needs to be done on her before it gets out of hand. This is how they start, before you know, she will grow to become a big time robber and kidnapper
