– accuses Akpoti of threats to husband’s first wife
“At this stage of technology and everything, how can you send a threat letter to your fellow woman all because you want to marry her husband; and you want to stand in a political power to say you are speaking for Nigerians? That is not possible”
In a video that has gone viral on social media platforms, the Kogi Central Senatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has been berated by women under the aegis of Concerned Delta Women, and accused of blackmails and husband snatching.
The women in the video, issued a warning to the Kogi politician, in their words, “retrace her steps and not completely destroy a family foundation that was built on trust. If our sister and daughter cannot fight for herself, we will tell Natasha we don’t play with our own daughter.
“The God of a virtuous woman is fighting our battle. When we talk of women representation in politics, we are talking about representation by women of virtue, not a woman that will scam her way into another man’s life.”
The audio-visual protest followed a leaked legal papers dated November 19, 2020 which allegedly had emanated from her lawyers, Idemnity Partners, and showed the politician sought for N10 billion damages from her husband, Uduaghan, the Alema of Warri.
In the letter, she had threatened legal action and demanded N10 billion compensation from her current husband for “breach of promise of marriage, poisoning, foeticide” among other allegations.
In the letter addressed to Uduaghan, the Alema of Warri Kingdom, Delta State, through her lawyers, she said the respected Delta chief was meant to divorce his previous wife in order to pave way for a marriage to her, which he refused to do.
Sources close to the family of Chief Uduaghan’s estranged wife, who described the letter as a blackmail, alleged that the respected chief might have eventually left his wife of over 20 years in order to avoid litigation that might dent his image as the female politician had issued a seven-day ultimatum for him to pay her the huge compensation.
However, Indemnity Partners, in a disclaimer signed by B.C. Igwilo SAN, distanced itself from the leaked letter, describing it as inauthentic.
The legal chamber further urged the public to ignore the letter.
With the recent video from the women group in Delta, her husband’s state, the Kogi politician has had one too many controversies in one month, whilst she battles Governor Yahaya Bello over terrorism accusations leveled against her by the state government.
