Clara Chime Under House-Arrest Imposed By Gov. Chime

Clara Chime, the First Lady of Enugu State, says
Governor Sullivan Chime, has placed her under house
arrest, and has cried out for assistance to reach human
rights bodies to rescue her.
In a letter dripping with pain and suffering, Mrs. Chime
disclosed that she married Mr. Chime in October 2008
but that she has been unable to share the matrimonial
bed with him for over four years.
Describing her desperate situation, she said that even
President Goodluck Jonathan and First Lady Patience
Jonathan have intervened with her husband without
“My father is late, my Mum and few of my siblings are
confused and have done all kinds of prayers they know
of, 3 of my siblings prefers me dead than to see me
leave the Government house. He treats my Mum and my
siblings bad,” she wrote.
The Enugu State First Lady said she has been
introduced to two psychiatrists whose names she gave
as Dr. Onwukwe and Dr. Agumo, who have prescribed
“all kinds of drugs that ends up keeping me acute
depressed and also drives me into hallucinations.”
The doctors, she noted, are scared of her husband the
Governor, to whom nobody can tell the truth.
According to the letter, the Catholic Bishop of Enugu
state (Callistus Onaga), and top priests have come to
intervene, as have the President and the First Lady of
the nation, without success.
Mrs. Chime further complains that Governor Chime has
ordered her to leave with her four-year old son whom
she conceived before their wedding. However, the
governor, according to her, later threatened to disown
the boy should she leave with him.
“He has told everyone he can reach that there is no
marriage between us that I can leave if I wish to but
whenever I plan to leave he instructs them to lock me
in. I have told him through Sms that I will leave my son
behind and leave alone but still he instructed
his securities to lock me inside the house.”
Mrs. Chime further complains she has lost touch with
the real world and all that makes her beautiful because
of the side effects of the drugs she is taking, stressing
that she is under house arrest for committing no crime.
Of the situation in Government House, she said, “He
does not take care of me personally, the government
gives me allowance to run the house and that's where I
save little from to take care of my elf, my Mum and few
of my siblings,” she said in the letter. He shut me out of
his life years ago; I don't have access to his apartment.
The problem is enormous; I don't know where to start
to explain from.”
She said that even the security detail in the lodge has
resorted to praying for her, while the few that can be
bought with money are taking advantage of the
“Police and SS men have been instructed by Br Sullivan
Chime to confine me in a place for a long time now
against my wish [but] it is my wish to leave these
premises,” she said, begging, “Please assist me to reach
to the human rights and say to them to please come
hastily and release me.”
