Husband of LIB reader who said he remarried without divorcing her, writes in

The estranged/ex-husband of LIB reader who says he remarried recently without divorcing her (read here), has written in to tell his own side of the story. Read below...
I am the husband that purportedly remarried without proper divorce in this story. The story is largely fictional – created in the head and imagination of a violent and abusive woman who sees herself as scorned. Below for the facts:
1. I got married to Margaret-Mary Agorua in 8th July 1995. In November of year 2000, we migrated to California, USA
2. Margaret turned out to be a violent wife. She attacked me severally and I have marks on my body to prove it.


3.            In February of 2011, Margaret attacked and wounded me so brutally with a knife. There was blood (my blood) all over our house. That was the tipping point.  I called in the American police and they whisked her off, first to police detention and then later to court.

4.            She was found guilty of “SPOUSAL BATTERY and DOMESTIC VIOLENCE” by the Long Beach Superior Court, California, and whisked off to jail.

5.            Because I refused to testify against her (out of pity for the mother of my children), her sentence was reduced to 6 months of “Community Service”; 1 year of Psychological Re-Training, and 4 days in jail. So yes, Margaret is an ex-con.

6.            Despite this, I decided to keep the relationship going and try to fix things. I do not come from a broken home. In fact I come from the exact opposite – Dad is 87, mom is 82, and I have never seen them argue. So the example I had was one of a happy home. I never contemplated divorce.

7.            Her violent behavior did not stop however – leading me to finally separate from her in June of 2004. I left our home in Philadelphia and moved to Lacey, Washington State – where I stayed till I got a job to work for the US government in Africa.

8.            I moved to Abuja in May 2005. In December 2011, Margaret arrived unannounced in Abuja (I had already travelled for the Christmas). She forcibly entered my home, by breaking through the glass window and uprooting the metal burglary proof from the walls. Immediately I heard I called in the Police again but she had quickly escaped. There is still a warrant out for her arrest by the way.

9.            I immediately asked dad that divorce proceedings begin. Dad being indisposed due to old age, asked his good friend, Sir Francis Akpamgbo to lead the team from my village to go and do the traditional divorce.

10.          On the 27th of December, Sir Francis Akpamgbo, leading some of my other family members arrived in Oguta and performed the traditional divorce. The team was received by Margaret’s father’s younger brother (George), Margaret’s mother, and some other relatives. Margaret’s belongings were symbolically returned in the form of 6 suitcases. Therefore, traditional divorce, completed.

11.          I also filed for legal divorce on the grounds that we had been separated and lived apart for 7 years. On the 31st day of 2014, the High Court of Abia State granted me official divorce.

12.          So, we are traditionally and legally divorced.



To the other lies:

A.            I have NEVER been arrested in any form or guise by the EFCC. The EFCC is there to provide the records to confirm this.

B.            My parents attended both the traditional wedding and the church wedding. I am forwarding pictures

C.            I have not done any court wedding in Abuja or anywhere else.


My general comments:

Again, it is a pity that I have to put such family matters in the public domain. If it was only me that was attacked, I probably would not have responded. That is how I have always behaved in the face of Margaret’s provocations and attacks in the past – ignore her.


But this is slightly different. My new wife is joined in this. Her family and friends joined – all, people that had nothing to do with the situation. It is my duty to protect my wife. And that I will do.

Linda u will start marriage counseling, lol

Mr. Banks said...

This guy's side of the story is very much believable. I have a similar experience.
A lot of women very well know how to make themselves look like the victim in situations like this. And because our society is largely empathetic to the female folks, they somehow find a way to escape with too many lies.
My story is very similar to this, so I can relate.
My advice to the guy is: Don't let this bother you one bit...as long as you can defend your facts any day anytime and that your wife, families and friends know these facts, carry on with your life bro and live it to the fullest.
One more thing, keep a close relationship with your two sons. Though they must have been fed with plenty lies by her, one day they'd know the truth. Keep praying for her too, very important.

Can you imagine? That's why its very paramount to hear from the other person's side of the story before conclusion. When I saw what Margaret wrote that her husband remarried without divorcing her, I just concluded in my mind that if this is true, then the problem might be from her. Margaret, if all these are true, its too bad though I know a lot of Nigerian ladies in America forgets who they are and where they come from as its their world over there. Too bad. I just feel for the kids.

today women are getting violent. my wife has once tried to burn my house spraying kerosine on my sitting room striking matches before me and two kids. the other time it was braking a plastic bowel on my head. the recent about two months ago was using a wooden pestle. God saved me i held her hand before it landed on my body my back. I spoke to my pastor and she said i can tell any pastor i like that she will continue what she is doing. am worried because am in pains holding on because of my three kids.presently we are not in speaking terms and sleep in separate rooms.

Now her eyes has cleared and she is looking for a way to bring the guy down

First of all, i don't know when Linda became a psychologist or judge of marital issues. How many things do you get to publish and you actually publish. I can bet you get tons of people asking for one form of advert or the other, but you choose to screen them and publish unverified stories.... now you have painted both pictures and people are left to analyse a family affair that shouldn't be their business. Linda i think you have to look inwards for what really concerns you and how it benefits your pocket and the public, not peddling stories because they seem true.

As far as i am concerned, Linda you threw this new couple under the bus before even hearing their own part of the story. Margaret... you are bitter, sad and pathetic. 7 years and now you want a divorce? What were you hoping for? a reunion or just to tarnish his image. Well, nothing for you. The whole place stinks of your lies. Emeka why haven't you married your new wife in court????

There's so much we can take from this story, Margaret is unhappy he remarried, wants to mess him up and would even take it to CNN if she could. Emeka has a role to play, he has to be responsible to his kids and new home. maybe also put up the divorce papers.

Ladies, be careful who and what you marry .... there's too much falsehood out there

Former Durable Medical Equipment Company Owner Sentenced For Defrauding Medicare

HOUSTON – Emeka Daniel Orji, 43, of Richmond, has been sentenced to federal prison and ordered to pay restitution following his conviction for conspiracy to commit and committing health care fraud, announced United States Attorney Kenneth Magidson. Orji pleaded guilty July 29, 2013.

Today, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes handed Orji a sentence of 48 months in prison. He was also ordered to pay $1.5 million in restitution to the Medicare program.

During his plea, Orji admitted that between January 2006 and March 20, 2008, he agreed with Aghaegbuna "Ike" Odelugo, of Supar Land, to split the profits of a scheme to defraud Medicare and Medicaid. Orji opened the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) company Spectrum Foundation Inc. and obtained a Medicare provider number. He admitted he worked with Odelugo and, through Spectrum, submitted approximately $4.4 million in false claims to Medicare and received payments totaling approximately $1.5 million.

Orji said that most items billed to Medicare and Medicaid, including “Artho kits” and power wheelchairs, either were not delivered at all, not medically necessary, not prescribed by a physician or upcoded from what was actually delivered. The items in the kit primarily consisted of a double shoulder brace, a lower back brace, left and right elbow braces, left and right wrist braces, gloves, left and right knee braces, left and right ankle braces and left and right foot braces. While Medicare may cover some of the items in this kit individually based on medical necessity, they are not recognized nor authorized to be provided as a kit. At Spectrum, approximately 96% of the items billed were the Artho Kits and lymph edema pumps, 3% were power wheelchairs and accessories and the remainder was various other DME.

In addition, several of the items were upcoded ‑ that is, the item billed to Medicare is paid at a higher rate than the actual item delivered. The upcoding was most prevalent in the back braces and heating pads. Using Spectrum, Orji and Odelugo submitted approximately $700,000 in claims to Medicare for the thoracic lumbar sacral orthotic brace - a full torso, rigid clamshell brace. If a beneficiary received any lumbar brace, it was usually a small flexible neoprene brace.

Orji admitted Odelugo obtained Medicare beneficiary information by paying recruiters, then created paperwork and patient files to give the appearance of a valid claim. Odelugo electronically filed the claim with Medicare or Medicaid and sent the patient files to Orji. Spectrum submitted 157 claims for dead beneficiaries. The Medicare money was then split between Orji and Odelugo with 25% going to Orji and 75% going to Odelugo. In total, Orji received approximately $375,000.

Odelugo also pleaded guilty and was sentenced last year to 72 months in prison.

Orji was permitted to remain on bond and voluntarily surrender to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

The criminal charges are the result of an investigation conducted by agents of the United States Department of Health and Human Services-Office of Inspector General. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Al Balboni.

The woman is not asking to be reconciled with him. She just wanted him to perform the divorce proceedings properly. He claimed he got divorced from the high court, did he serve the lady the divorce notice, and who signed on her behalf? This is supposed to be a two-way thing.If the lady wasn't around to be served where is the newspaper notice to that effect? My submission is that the man bribed the court and got a fake divorce. He committed bigamy and the lady should sue his ass. She should also copy the US embassy and the company he works for. I'm tired of all these cowards who lie and paint women black to justify their evil deeds.

This man's story was fabricated and not coherent at all. Libers, please read between the lines 3, 7 and 8. How did your wife attacked u with knife in your home in 2011 in line 3, while u stated in line 7 that u left her 2004? She came to Abuja in Dec 2011 unannounced and broke into your home, while you stated earlier that she was sentenced to community service work for 6months, psychological training for 1 year and jail for 4 days? So did she jump all these totalling 1 year 6 months and 4 days to come to Nigeria between feb 2011 and Dec 2011? Is it possible to get a divorce paper in court without the other party signing the paper? Where are pictures of your parents that shows that they attended the wedding and why dont u attach the divorce certificate? The picture above shows that the parents are for the bride.

Okay so you kept the divorce docs for more than 1 yr but refused to let your ex wife have it, how does this speak well of you??? And then you only tell your son 1 day to the wedding that you re getting married?? So your own children are not invited to your wedding? Oga, if you have done well, there would be no need to hide such from your own kids and for you to continue keeping thr papers from yout wife.

Shut up if you have nothing useful to say. This is a blog. If you are looking for news , go to channels tv or vanguard or sun newspapers . Besides they contacted her and asked her to publish the story.

Anonymous said...

LINDA iKEJi, personally I think you should stop airing such articles...it makes for a good read . BUT needs to be fact checked because you can be sued for Libel. Or at the minimum..give the other party the opportunity to respond before you put out a story. I subscribe to a website that allows you to give a review on a service...but it does not publish the review until they hear from the "reviewee" before publishing both opinions.

HOW BAD CAN A FIRST DATE GET
We talked a little longer about sports, books and movies.

I was having a fantastic time.

All that changed moments later.

Ib suddenly gasped as she stared behind me.

"What is it?"I enquired turning around to .......

"Don't turn around!!!"she urged in a hushed tone.

The once smiling Woman now had a terriffied expression on her face.

"What???"I asked clearly alarmed.

The look on her face was unsettling.

She leaned forward against the table as if to tell me something grave.

"Listen,...Lawrence!"she began.

".....I wasn't lying when I told you I was single....The thing is,...my Ex still wants me back....!"

I sat there processing  what I'd just heard. continue reading

All this story na for your pocket Bottom line where is your divorce paper that you solely obtained from court???
That is not possible , your estranged wife has to sign.
New wife please make sure you see divorce papers if you don't see or attest it you are actually not married and he is a bigamist. Which is an offence

l.i.m said...

I think he meant to say 2001 that was a typographical error.

Anonymous said...

Please shut the fuck up u bastard. most Nigerian men when they get to abroad they turn into lazy fools...they want their wives to work work work while they sit at home and try to monitor her finances. Which woman will respect such a man? Which woman? no woman! So spare me with that bullshit about women turn into something else when u take them abroad. For every action there is a reaction!

Let God fight for her if she's telling the truth .he wont go unpunished if he is lying.

Nkechi J. said...

He sounds believable and this is none of my business, but since we're here now, I have a few questions on some inconsistencies in his story.

1. How do you move out of the house in 2004, and she hurt you with knife in 2011?
2. Am not sure how Nigerian divorce proceedings work, but how do you divorce without the 2 parties signing?

4. Where are your kids because no American family court will let a woman convicted of domestic violence have custody of 2 little kids?
5. How was she persecuted when you didn't testify? Its a family issue so if you didn't file a report, nothing will happen to her; its either you filled a report and she got misdemeanor for it (sorry dear but you don't get 4 days and community service for a felony offence), or you didn't talk and nothing happened to her... Which is it?
Don't make your sorry sound sweeter than it really is.
6. Not necessary but since you brought it up, where are the pictures from your wedding showing your parents?

Chai Nigerians. So the guy writes and you quickly denounce the wife's story and believe him? I beg his dates do not match. So not sure I believe him. Besides he's painting himself as a saint. Na lie joo

cheiress said...

OK dear.....sorry oh, hold on until she roasts you alive. The women of these days tho, so much anger and bitterness,what's going on? Where are the good women of prov31. If you font want to marry again, quietly walk away na, must u commit murder first

This anonymous 3:34, you be original olodo. You do comprehension for school at all?. He left her in the US in 2004. She came and broke into his house in Nigeria in 2011. See, it's not that hard. You are welcome (in anticipation of your thank you)😞

How can he take care of the boys when they are with the rabid woman. I know how bitter ex wives brainwash their kids against their father. Look ag how she used the boy to get their wedding pictures. Madam move on abeg.

Lagos Lawyer said...

The chronological order of his presentation shows very clearly that date was an error. It's is clearly meant to be 2001 which was why it was still the Police in the USA that was called. The guy moved back to Nigeria in 2005 and the ex wife came to the house unannounced in 2011. Note that the Police referred to in this instance was the NPF. Very logical story. Way more coherent than the ex wife's story. Thank me later.

My dear, it's all social media. The truth is between them and God. But I kinda support the dude's story too. Because from the woman's post of her sons chat with his dad, the son doesn't seem half affected or sad that his dad is getting married again... so something was definitely wrong.
