In an exclusive interview with Channels TV, Clara Chime the estranged wife of Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu state, South East Nigeria recounts her experience in the hands of her husband whom she said she is separated from now.
The woman has been in the news recently because of the controversy
surrounding her life in the Government House of Enugu State. Things fell
apart when she reached out to some members of the human right community
and legal practitioner, Femi Falana, to save her from her husband.
Her appeal generated reactions from Nigerians and the civil society
with several accusations, most of which bothered on unlawful detention
and violence against women, given the physical and psychological
suffering she was reported to be facing.
She said: “I suffered from depression and the treatment I got from my husband led to it.”
She also thanked Nigerians for coming to her rescue, expressing joy that she is “now liberated.”
