January 21, 2017 – Prince Chuks Okebata’s Wife Denies Sending Hired Killers To Murder Husband, Says Marriage Was Intact

Wife Of Prince Chuks Okebata, US-Based Nigerian Assassinated In Imo State Denies Sending Hired Killers To Murder Husband

Mrs Okebata, the wife of the US-based Nigerian man murdered in Imo state few days ago has denied the reports that she was responsible for her husband’s abduction and assassination.

Though the marriage was plagued with constant fight and police intervention, Mrs Okebata claimed her innocence by saying she packed his bag on the day he left the US for Nigeria.

Here is what she said in an email sent to Amanda Chisom.

“I am the wife of the man who was assassinated, and I am just distraught. I do not even know where to start but it is only right I tell my own side of the story. I am innocent, God is my witness that I did not kill my husband or the evil that my husband’s family is portraying me to be.

My sister in-law posted that video to make me look evil but the part she did not tell anybody was that I was calling the police to save my life because he always beat me up and I was told to call the police whenever he started and that was exactly what I was doing, from the video you would see that I did not fight him or answer him. Should I have allowed him to kill me?

“We have been married for 13 years since I was 19, it has been beating upon beating, I have gone through surgeries because of beating he gave me. How can I kill my husband, we live together, till the day he left for Nigeria, I packed his things, how could I kill him.

Who do I know to order a hit on the father of my children? I have no interest in his properties as suggested after all we built everything together. God knows I am innocent. I have endured all these years through his beating and cheating and I did not leave or kill him, why would I do it now?

All I ask is that I am left to mourn in peace and the killers found and prosecuted,”.

But contrary to claims by Mrs. Okebata that the marriage was intact and that she in fact packed his luggage on the day he was heading for Nigeria, relations of the deceased revealed that the two had been separated for more than three years following series of misunderstandings between them.

The marriage reportedly started experiencing cracks after the victim’s wife demanded that they move to another city and away from her in-laws.

Soon claims of mistrust began, culminating finally in their eventual separation.

Here are the viral videos of the deceased and his wife shortly before he came to Nigeria.

    How can any reasonable person or group linked a family issues, disputes and misunderstanding between a man and a woman to murder case? This is unjust because one minute video of a woman threatening to call police on the father of her children is no evidence or reason to blame her for the murder of that man in a crazy nation like Naija. She wouldn’t want prince Chuks dead so that the man can continues to pay her the child support benefits as required in American system. Only a wicked person or the real killer will accuse this woman for killing late prince Chuks by hired assassins. I refuse to believe this propaganda and defamation of the woman’s character.

      Hi Omokehinde i think you got it wrong .i reside in the UK and i have visited the US on many occasion. In a western world when an assasination takes place the authourity has the means of investigating and they will reach a conclusion within a matter of time.
      The wife knows she can do this in Nigeria and get away with it. Once your a widow their is some entitlement she can still get all what she will do is to produce a death certificate.
      If it is in the UK where i reside the lady will earn more in working tax credit,child benefit and if she does not have a roof above her head she will end up in a council flat.
      I hate all our women in diaspora with passion all what they are after is what you have as soon as they get the Green card in the US or permanent residence in the UK or any European country they become the boss.
      Only few of them has a genuine love.
      The woman in question is so selfish she can be bother about the children she just want the guy taken away by the police.
      it will be interesting to know how this case end .

      It seems you’re ****** in your statement. If you lived in the US, you would know that there are several benefits which include life insurance, social security, survivor pension especially as a prior military personnel, and so much more, that would make a desperate woman to do such a thing.

      This woman and her family members including those in Nigeria should be seen as possible suspects until proven otherwise.

      Guys, leave a woman as soon as she starts to call the cops on you. That’s not the end of life. It’s not worth your life. My ex tried this and I divorced her. Now I’ve been happily married for 7 years. Life is too short to spend it with a selfish and arrogant piece of a human. The marriage laws in the US are mostly meant for the women, and guys needs to beware.

      How did you know he has life insurance policy. **** I pray you don’t find yourself in a situation where you are accused wrongly. Do not judge or conclude on issues you know nothing about . You have no right to.

    You killed him, he left the U.S to go stay in Nigeria bcus of you. The cries & rebellion of those kids someday, will send you to your grave. Most 9ja women use the system to abuse their marriage/husband. When in fact you/your families were nobody in 9ja but once you reach America, you’re somebody now & power drunk!

      Why won’t they its cos most Nigerian men are useless use women as shit,she has the rigth to protect her self so she shld die like mumu

        “its cos most Nigerian men are useless”

        How can you now prove this man was lazy, hence his wife kicked him out of his own house? He built a house in Nigeria and also had one his wife was telling him to leave within 2 minutes.

        It’s obvious the man stopped by to see his children, but the wife didn’t want him there. He saw that the kids needed a haircut. How heartless are you, Shanda if that’s is your real name?

        I bet you’re either divorced or can’t find a man to marry you to tolerate your arrogance; and BTW, you sound just like my ex whom I happily divorced, because that’s where people like you belong. I’ve been happily married for 7 years while she still remains single.

        Women like you are meant to ever remain single. African culture is different from that of the US. You wonder why divorce is so high in the US? Because of women like you who don’t believe men should be the head of the house especially when you start to make a few change. I’m in no way supporting any man to maltreat his wife either, so let’s respect the life that was cut short, and the children who are now the victim of this woman’s wickedness.

    I am saying that the wife must ordered her people in Nigeria to kill her husband but the scenario is likely. This is why. U.S. veterans enjoy lots of benefits, example: Lifetime free health care which extends to their wives after they are no more; and now that he is dead, their house will be paid off; their children school fees will be free if not substantially subsidized, the wife will enjoy lifetime free membership to veterans clubs with its benefits; the free medical will be extended to her for life, and she will now be free to bring in another man to enjoy what her husband labored for. Her attitude to those boys when they were crying and pleading with their Dad not to pack out shows a woman with evil intent. I really feel sorry for the kids. Some Nigerian women here are worse than Americans and have hijacked the bad laws meant for Americans leaving out the good ones. This does not mean that all the men are saints, there are some bad ones as there are some good women too. If she was being abused like she claimed, why did she not inform the authorities to move her out if she can not move out on her own, but rather she called the police knowing fully well the police will ask the husband to pack out. After all there are agencies that take care of battered women and punish the husbands of those women. It is not good for a man to lift a hand on a woman let alone beat her up but some attitudes of some women will drive a man nuts especially those who came from families that fully depend on them. Some men understandably are lazy and depend on their wives income to survive, but that is not the case here. Do they not have elders to settle the issues for them or do they belong to any Nigerian meeting/association/organization? even if they do some of them do give bad advise. So,it is for the couple to unite themselves and solve their problems amicably. @ Omokehinde, I do not quite agree with you that it is propaganda or defamation of the woman’s character, there must be an atom of truth. @ Commenthin,you are 100% correct when you say “most Nigeria women use the system to abuse their marriage/ husbands”. The whole blame should not go to the women, there are some Nigerian men that are damn too lazy and indolent, but, from the case above,he is not one of them.

    Though only God knows the exact truth of the matter. But going by what this woman explained above,to me ,it doesn’t look like she’s lying. Her explanation makes a lot of sense and she seems to be very,very sincere in claiming her innocence. I don’t want to re-echo or re-analyse her statement to prove that she may most likely be innocent. The death of her husband may have come from other source and not from her. The timing of the death of her husband unfortunately occurred at a time when both of them have a row or dissension among themselves. Nevertheless, If the deceased family insist that she killed their son,then let them charge the matter to court and they should ensure they provide a well-grounded,convincing and satisfactory evidence to back up their claim in the law court. Other than this,I think this woman remain innocent before any mortal man and should not be unjustly accused of the death of her husband.

    I have read this news since it was published but find it hard to comment because it’s too complicated…..but i can not resist to say something here, for the dead guy…RIP, for the Children and those who know and loved him, may God console you people.

    The most important lesson here is for us who are still alive…let every person or family mend their ways before it’s too late and let’s be careful with whatever we are wishing for cos we might have it….so sad indeed.

    My gut feelings tells me that this woman is innocent of this crime. It is a terrible feeling to be blamed of something when you are innocent. Even though, this video does not look good for her, i pray that God vindicate her at last so she can move on with her kids. May God console everyone involved in this tragedy…family, friends and loved ones.

    Do not judge!
    The story confirms the inlaw’s were never in good terms with the woman as a result of their late brother sharing g with them how his wife feels about living in the same city. Husbands! When two become one……., stop provoking your family by giving and passing on your homes and bedrooms talks from your wives. Women are only human and do not have to like or agree with all your family. If she shares her heart with genuineness, why not ask and suggest ways to make things better instead of taking heart to heart talk to your families! RIP to this man. Let God be the judge! Just to conclude that if there was already issues with her late hub’s family, do t expect them to declare her innocent,Anger surely turns into bitterness. As for me, I will pray for the children to be comforted and find a father in their heavenly father andvfor both families to find healing so they can move on. RIP

    i really don’t understand the rise in trend where spouses who supposedly declare to love each other till death do them part and to ripe old age, turn against each other and going as far as murder especially within the African communities in the USA

    May his gentle soul rest in peace. First and foremost my condolences to the deceased family. Now everyone is asking, Who is behind the assination? It could be the family, friends,wife (as fingers are pointing at her) or just mere a robbery or kidnapping incident.Now no one knows exactly everything about his death. With this clip i watched. I wonder and ask why are our Nigerian women behave like the westerners even though the know they are not really from the west. We all know our heritage and when the go out there,they behave totally different from our actual culture. Pardon me, I’m from the Igbo tribe but i notice this happens mostly our igbo families over there. I have not heard or watched a video of the Hausa people in this scenerio. Is it that we are the only ones that TEAR EYE as they say it or are we the only ones that travels abroad.What is there to learn, is the western world that has the highest rate of divorce.Marriage is not a one way drive(for better and for the worst)Do we just say those words without knowing the true meaning.I have seen Hausa families with 3 wives living in harmony and we cant contend just single family. 2012 a man trickly dumped his wife in the village and took all her papers and made sure she aint coming back again. He said his wife was making his life a living hell. She controls him and anytime he doesnt oblige to her Order she instantly locks him up. He has been arrested 3 times in a row and still threatening that the next time he goes again she will make sure he is never coming back. Back then we never knew the whole story,we were busy abusing the man including myself till the man played the full tape. His supposed wife was there which is now ex. She couldnt say anything. It was when she started apologising thats when we knew it was true.She was the man of the house when He remembered how he picked her up,married her and brought her over. She suddenly became his boss. NOW back to the actual story. What is the example this woman is showing to her kids. Does she think they will ever forget that? Even if she is innocinn. She first seperated them from their Dad then death finally seperated them.This video will go viral and may not vanquish intime. Whenver they watch it.they will still blame their mum having a role on their dad’s death. I pray for her sha. Now every finger is pointing at her. It is still painful losing a loved one cos all u have is just memories. How will she prove herself when this video is showing her at her Best behavior. I pray this serves a lesson to our abroad wives. My Condolences once again
