September 28, 2015 – Woman Arrested While Attempting To Use Ruth & Emeka Uche’s Twins To Defraud Retired Police Commissioner In Lagos
Do you remember the viral story of one Mrs Ruth Uche, a mother of 3 set of twins who was recently abandoned by her husband Emeka before Lagos State came to her rescue?
Well a neighbour has introduced a wannabe fraudster to them.
The suspect identified as Victoria first approached the Uches asking to use their twins for a Nollywood movie.
Emeka Uche agreed but demanded that his wife follow her to the movie set.
To cut the long story short, the two ended up at the home of a retired police commissioner.
Rather than taking them for the film shooting as claimed, Victoria reportedly carried them to the big man’s house, who was overjoyed when he saw the children.
Trouble, however, started after the suspect could not state the actual sex and age of the babies.
Victoria, who had earlier taken pictures of the twins and sent to the man, had told him they were boys and two months old.
But when the retired commissioner eventually saw the babies, he realised they were a boy and girl, and looked much older than two months. It was at that point that Mrs. Uche suspected something was amiss and told the man the babies’ actual age and sex.
Ruth Uche quickly claimed innocence.
Hear her confession:
“I did not understand what was going on. I do not even know the place we went to. She has been pleading with us that she wanted to use the twins (youngest set) in a film.
“My husband initially declined the proposal, but he later changed his mind since the woman said she wanted the children to act in a film. I begged my husband and he said he will only agree on the condition that I go with the woman.
“So, around 11:30am on Sunday, we all left the house and came to Agege. She took us to one big man’s house. I do not know the place and she told me to sit down that it is the kids that will act the film.But when I sat down, I heard the man asking her whether the children are two boys and how old they are.
“She said two months and that they are boys. But I told the man that they are a boy and girl, and that they are four months old.
“The man asked whose children and I told him they are my children, that the woman said she wanted to act film with them.
“That was when the man started shouting, saying that she told him that my children are his grandchildren. The man said she has sent their picture before, saying his son impregnated a woman before travelling abroad.The man now said that we were in it together and that I knew about it. I told him I do not know anything that the only thing she told us was that she wanted to act film with my babies.“Before she did not want to talk, but when people threatened her, she told them that I am innocent. The woman told them she wanted to get money from the man. That woman is a criminal,”..
Victoria is currently cooling off at Agege Police station.
Police has released Ruth and her children but they will soon appear in court.
