July 9, 2015 – Ruth Uche’s Husband, Lagos Factory Worker Emeka, Dad Of Abandoned Lagos Twins Opens Up “I’m Afraid Of Arrest If I Come Out”

In an exclusive chat with The Nation yesterday, the father of the 3 set of twins abandoned with their mother, Emeka Uche opens up.

The factory worker who allegedly left his wife and kids back in April said life has been unbearable and miserable for him and that he left because he couldn’t stand his children going hungry.

Hear the words of the factory worker:

“How do I watch my kids suffer? I could not tolerate it. I did not even have money to assist my family. I watched them suffer daily, without knowing what to do.

“There were nights I watched my children sleep without food. Some days I will buy N100 garri and akara (bean cake) for my family. Because of my low income, I was always in debt before the end of each month.

“I am a factory worker and I earn N33,000 after tax and union fees. Then I have four children and a wife to take care of, which has been very difficult, I could not stand having a new set of twins that will come to this world to suffer.

“Initially, I thought it would be a child, probably a boy so that I would have two sons and three girls, but when I learnt it was twins again, the only thing that came to my mind was to run away.

“It was not an easy decision and I have not been happy knowing that I abandoned them. My wife is a very good woman and I love her. I love my children too. I became frustrated when I called my brothers for assistance and they did not even answer me. I just dressed up that morning, I knew I won’t come back but I didn’t tell her so that she would not feel bad.

“I am pained that I have not seen my wife and children for three months, sister you won’t understand my situation, but know that it has not been easy for me,” he lamented on telephone, as he refused to disclose his location.

This is his wife’s response:

“Please do not hang up the phone on me my heart. Just listen to what I have to say.

“I understand that things have not been easy but you should know that we have suffered alot. Please come back to me and your children.

“No one will arrest you because you are still my husband and I still love you. Anyone who arrests you will kill me first. Please talk to this aunt and also come so that we can go to Alausa together. They are all good people and mean well for us,”.

Ruth Uche reportedly talked at length to her husband yesterday after he opened up to reporters.

This story is generating mixed feelings among Nigerians.

Many think it’s a set up while other believe Ruth Uche’s version of the story.

No Igbo man in his right mind will abandon his family just like that.

Let’s hope he return home soon.

    the guy spoke his mind. 33000 naira for 6 children and a wife in lagos state. chai it is not easy…family members from both from the woman side and men side should help them… how will he cope with children’s clothing, school fees, feeding and especially this twins. light bills…33k is no money for sure. God please provide a way where there is seems no where. church he attends should assist also.

    It’s all emeka’s fault, he is well aware that his salary is 33,000 b4 impregnating his wife after four children. Looking for a second boy, what a statement. The 4 children were already sleeping without food why go for more. Illiteracy.

    Dis man, u’r a huge shame 2 ur generation. U knew ur income was meagre yet were giving birth wdout control. If u could take k of 5, Y wdnt u b able 2 take k of 6? Wat diff is there btwn 99 & 100? U jst ran away bcos u’r stupid. Ur family members must hav cautiond u earlier against how u gave birth. But a stubborn man like u wdnt listen. So what makes u think they would jump 2 ur aid?

    I alwz h8 it wen I see ppl like u manufacturing children beyond their means. U’r jst lucky dat ur wife stil luvs u. Wen ur children grow up they’ll get 2 hear dis despicable escapade, & dat would help dem 2 undastnd wat kind of man u really are. U may wish 2 hide dis story frm dem, but u will neva succeed.

      You said it well. They need to go for family planning. His kids are his responsibility and not that of his brothers. The sooner Nigerians drop this attitude of always hoping on people to cater for their needs, the better for them. Impregnating his wife was their joint decision, they should be responsible for their action and take care of their kids instead of trying to pass the responsibility to his brothers who already have their own family needs to cater for.

    Emeka.. Emeka, Emeka.. How many times did I call you.. You are very stupid.. You said you love ur wife and children but U left them since APRIL.. You know pretty well ur wages is 33k before getting her pregnant. You don’t even have food for your kids now as you say they go to sleep hungry..(Ohhhh My God I feel for the innocent kids) Pls get ur BUTT home and tke care of ur kid and wife. I hope ur trouser will not buldge up again as this is a lesson, since you don’t have sense to plan your life. CHURCH this is the time to play our role and good and well meaning Nigerians. Lets leave Emeka out of this since he his running away from his responsibilities.

    U an ******** @bench! This man impregnated his wife looking for a boy, when the outcome was the reverse, he decided to take to his heels.
    Was it Ruth that put those set of twins in her womb? Did she even determine their sex?
    moreover, she’s @ fault for not using a modern birth control method to space her children appropriately, knowing her family ‘s condition.

    Emeka, that is why the Oyinbo man invented condoms. Why can’t you use condoms or have yourself “clipped” – VASECTOMY is the medical term. You are not being fair to yourself and those innocent children. If the hungry-looking faces of your children and the anxiety of where their next meal is coming from is not enough to refrain you from having sex, then do something about not getting your wife pregnant. Prostitutes don’t have children like that, despite their being ferociously active. Stop making excuses, we all have our problems, so give us a break!.
