Lauretta Onochie reacts to being stranded, kicked out of UK home


Former chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Lauretta Onochie, has denied reports that she was kicked out from an apartment in the United Kingdom.

Reports had emerged on Saturday that Onochie was embarrassed and became stranded after she was kicked out by family members.

But reacting on Sunday, Onochie denied that she was stranded.

She explained that her cousin whom she housed tried to take her home but after a battle, she recovered it.

She wrote on Twitter, “WHAT A BATTLE, I RECOVERED MY HOME.

“My Cousin, Victor Ashiedu Fejokwu and his wife, Ruth Emereze were stranded, in fact homeless at the time. I took pity on them, took them in, to house them in my home.

“A year ago, when I started making plans to return to continue housing them, they blocked my phone number. I had no access to my letters. Consequently, I missed quite a number of appointments.

“Having the key to the property, I turned up at the door, twice. They installed bolts and bolted the door from the inside and refused to let me in.

“They stopped contributing to the rent when they both had jobs, preferring to host lavish parties.

“I tried again for the last time. When I knocked, his wife sneaked from the garden into the house, to bolt the front door against me.

“Miraculously. Miraculously. She forgot to lock the garden door through where she sneaked into the house. I got access to the house through that door,” she said.

Onochie further stated that they became nasty and when she called the police, they were dealt a heavy blow and told to vacate the house.

She added that they moved out two days ago and they will reap what they did to her.
