The smooth and sizzling romantic relationship earlier enjoyed by Chidi Anyaegbu, the CEO of popular transport company, Chisco Transport Limited, and his 33-year-old job applicant turned mistress, Chineye Chinwuba, recently turned bitter.
As you read this, both are in court slugging it out with each other.
The transport mogul alleged that his lover threatened to kill him via a text message, which forced him to involve the police in the matter and got her arrested.
On the part of the Chisco boss’ mistress, she never threatened to eliminate her lover, but only informed him of her intension to move on with her life, which the man does not want.
Chineye was arraigned before Magistrate Nike Olagbende of the Igbosere Magistrate’s Court in Lagos on a one-count charge.
According to the prosecutor, Supol Agustine Onwuemene, the defendant committed the offence between November 2013 and August 20, 2014, at about 4pm, at 15 Ruxton Road at Ikoyi area of Lagos. The prosecutor also informed the court that the offence is punishable under Section 230 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.
We learnt that in 2012, precisely on Sunday, August 5, the Chisco boss brought Chineye to Lagos from Onitsha, Anambra State, promising to offer her job. Soon after, an affair ignited between them.
Chineye told the court that though the Chisco boss failed to offer her a job as promised, however, he got her a two-room apartment in one of his houses in Lekki, Lagos.
Narrating her story further, the lady said, “I told him I was quitting the relationship and ever since then, he has been harassing me. Last December, he took me to Tinubu magistrate’s court, alleging that I stole his N1.5 million.
“He told me that the only way he could forget about the matter was for me to continue with the relationship.I only sent him an insulting text message, I never sent him a death threat. On March 15, he sent at least eight thugs to my house and they threw my things and my little boy out. The people in the compound were aware of the incident. He then said he had rented another apartment for me at Ikoyi, which is where I am currently living but I insisted the relationship could not continue. Last Sunday, while I was at home, a Police Inspector came in to my apartment and told me that I was under arrest. The case at the Tinubu court is still ongoing.”
After pleading not guilty to the charge, the defendant was granted bail in the sum N25,000 and one responsible surety in like sum.
The Chisco boss, who was not in court at the hearing, but was represented by his counsel, was told to be present in court at the next hearing. The matter was adjourned till September 8, 2014 for trial.
