Juliet, a daughter of the missing Abuja-based business woman, Charity Aiyedogbon, has ‘reinvented’ the social media drama that announced her mother’s sudden disappearance.
Mrs. Aiyedogbon’s missing, which was reported earlier in the month, has sparked a widespread social media campaign. Weeks after she was declared missing, bloggers and other social media platforms alleged that her mutilated body was found at Dutse, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory (HERE).
Aiyedogbon (who is popularly known as Deepdeal ChaCha Dehammer) disappeared after she announced on her Facebook page that she was embarking on a “road trip.”
Amid social media campaigns demanding justice for Aiyedogbon, Juliet has taken to Facebook, claiming that her mother was alive.
“Now my mum is missing. We, the family, have evidence from investigation that my mum is alive. I am working with it to find her. The police is working hard on this case, and honestly we are getting positive results,” she said in a Facebook post she later took down.
There have been reports that the Aiyedogbon and her husband, David, had an unresolved misunderstanding that even led to physical assaults.
But Juliet, who #JusticeforChacha campaigners accused of employing desperate antics to save her father, said, “My dad has put their disagreements aside and has been at the forefront of to find my mother. You can’t love my mum more than the family.”
She also challenged those who claimed to have found her mother’s corpse to produce it for a DNA.
“Stop cooking up stories and joining people to say negative things about my dad, mum and siblings. It is very unfair,” she noted, saying those who were out to destroy the reputation of her family would face the wrath of God
If the post was surprising, many would find the manner in which it was deleted puzzling. The post thus added a new twist to the drama the incident has caused on digital media, with many people criticising Juliet.
This is not the first time Juliet would be facing a social media backlash over her missing mother. Some weeks ago when her pre-wedding photographs surfaced on the Internet, those who have shared the plight of her family took her up, asking why she deemed it appropriate to continue the wedding process.
And considering that a social media ‘manhunt’ was initially promoted by Juliet’s siblings, her attack on sympathisers has raised several questions.
As of Tuesday, over 40,000 people, according to Facebook, were talking about the disappearance of Aiyedogbon and the controversies it has caused. That was how much interest Juliet’s post has received.
And many people are also shocked that Juliet is reportedly going ahead with her wedding scheduled for July 9.
Responding to the post, Gold Adams, a Facebook user, wrote, “Juliet, I have never met your mum. But reading what people write about her is emotionally touching. I love my mum till death, and I think this is natural with humans. How dare you contemplate going ahead with your wedding if it was actually your mother that is at the centre of this saga?”
