marriage between Chima Madueke and his fiancée, Chioma Christopher has
been called off after Chioma was docked and sent to prison for allegedly
stealing some dollars kept inside Chima’s elder sister house.
The incident happened at Ben Bright Street in Ago Okota, Lagos where
Chima’s elder sister, Rachel reside with her husband, Living stone.
P.M.EXPRESS gathered that the incident happened barely one month
after the couple and their family had concluded plans for the
traditional marriage and church wedding back home in Anambra State.
It was alleged that Chima sent Chioma to his elder sister, Rachel
from Onitsha in Anambra to Lagos to conclude plans for their wedding as
agreed by both family.
When Chioma got to Rachel’s house, she was given free access to enter into their rooms including their bedroom.
Rachel was said to have sent Chioma to their bedroom fridge for her to
bring out the meat which they will use to cook. When she got there, she
was said to have stolen one thousand six hundred dollars ($1,600) that
Rachel’s husband had kept inside the fridge and went away.
However, the theft was exposed when she went to change the money at a
local bureau de change in the street. She was shortchanged and given
fake dollars which resulted in altercation between her and the operator
of the local bureau de change.
When Rachel’s husband later returned from work and looked for the
money, he did not find it. He asked around and Chioma then confessed
taking it, claiming that she did not know what came over her to steal
the money.She was handed over to the police at Ago Division and she was charged before Isolo Magistrates court for stealing.
She pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Adedayo granted her bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.
She was remanded in prison custody pending when she will perfect her bail condition.
P.M.EXPRESS gathered that both Chima and his family have washed their hands off and cancelled the marriage.
