Lauretta Onochie, a former aide of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari and Chairman of the Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), is reportedly facing accommodation issues in the United Kingdom (UK).
Onochie was allegedly kicked out of her apartment by family members and became stranded.
In a video shared by Sahara Reporters, she was seen being harassed by a family member who refused to share a room with her.
Onochie explained in a post that she had taken in her cousin and his wife when they were stranded, but they later blocked her access to the apartment.
She eventually used the police to evict them. Onochie stated that despite the bitter experience, she will continue to help those in need.
“After 8years of feeding fat as SA Social Media to the President & Chairman NDDC Board. Lauretta is back to the streets of London after she was ignored on the new NDDC Board. She went back to London without prior notice 2 forcefully eject the family living in her apartment on rent,” a Twitter user had said.
In a video shared by Sahara Reporters, she was seen being harassed by a family member who said she could not share a room with her.
A little child, who was seen with a belt also yelled at the former presidential aide.
“I have told my dad to call the cops again, you can’t stay in my house again. I don’t know you, leave our house,” a voice was heard saying.
“Who are you? I don’t know her; she came in today and here is she harassing me,” the person said in another video.
In a post, the former presidential aide explained that her cousin, Victor Ashiedu Fejokwu, and his wife, Ruth Emereze, were stranded in the UK and she took them into her home.
She said that one year later, she made plans to return to the apartment to take possession but the couple became unreachable.
Onochie said various attempts to gain entrance to the apartment were blocked by the couple until she used the police to evict them.
Onochie, in the post titled, “WHAT A BATTLE, I RECOVERED MY HOME!!!”, wrote, “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 have jobs, preferring to host lavish parties.
“At some point before they stopped completely, my sister, Queenesther Nwaise helped to settle many months of rent. My immediate family too, helped.
“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 called in an IPOB thug and a young lady.
“They became nasty. Of course, I called the police who dealt them a heavy blow, telling them they must vacate for me unless I was willing to continue to house them.
“The cowardly thug ran away before the arrival of the Police. The other young lady went to my bed and spread herself out. Of course, I got her out.”
Onochie stated that the couple began to plead, asking to be allowed to stay but she refused and they moved out two days later.
She explained that although a bitter one, the experience would not make her stop helping those who need her assistance.
“Ashiedu and his wife will reap what they did to me. Bountifully,” Onochie stated.
