Ekaette-Unoma Akpabio, the wife of the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, has taken time out to thank God for her survival, after months of undergoing several corrective surgeries abroad, during which several rumor of her death, surfaced online.
In a recent interview, her husband was quoted as saying: “During the cause of my wife having our children, my wife had caesarian child deliveries. Well, what we didn't know was that for some reason there was a devastating surgical error.
In sewing back my wife's womb, some surgeon sewed up her bowels to her skin. Not just in one place but in several places. My wife took ill. During investigation, doctors discovered this surgical blunder. We were all shocked, including the doctors.
The doctors have therefore had to conduct several surgical operations to detach and untangle my wife's bowels from her skin. It's been a terrible time for us and I have had to be there for her, that's why I travel to make sure she's ok.
It's therefore very hurtful when I read some of these wicked rumours on the internet. Some have even gone as far as saying the Igbos are after me and asking for their daughter back, none of this is true. People have sat down and created these stories - it's wicked. What's worse - the purveyors of these stories are a few disgruntled people from Akwa Ibom State."
