Disregard Leaked Videos, Audios By Lady Claiming To Be My Mistress — Ohakim

Former Imo State Governor, Ikedi Ohakim, has urged members of the public to disregard some audio and video recordings in circulation online, purporting one Ms Chinyere Amuchienwa-Igwegbe to be his estranged mistress.

Ohakim said the audios and videos were doctored and released by those he described as “fifth columnists”.

It was earlier in the news that Ohakim and Ms Chinyere engaged in a dirty fight after their alleged relationship went sour.

But responding in a statement on Tuesday, Ohakim said some unnamed persons had teamed up with Ms Chinyere to launch a “nasty and negative media campaign” against him in a bid to tarnish his reputation.

In the statement signed by his political adviser, Emma Chukwu, the 63-year-old former governor warned those behind the alleged campaign of calumny to “desist forthwith” or face legal action.

Chukwu said, “These people, who are presumably close to Ms Amuchienwa have resorted to circulating salacious photos and videos of her, all in an attempt to either settle old scores with her or add fuel to Ms Amuchienwa’s media forays against Dr. Ohakim by making her or the public to believe that these unsavory things are coming from Dr. Ohakim. Whatever may be their unholy purposes, we hereby warn them to desist forthwith.

“It does not matter whether such photos and videos are real or photoshopped. What matters is that those to whom Ms Amuchienwa might have shared those items with or those who might have hacked her phone or photoshopped her are not doing any favors to Dr. Ohakim.

“Further, we have been reliably informed that Ms Amuchienwa is circulating a voice-note or other audio recordings that she purports to have come from Dr. Ohakim. In this age of transpositions and photoshopping, such audios may come across to unsuspecting persons as Dr. Ohakim’s voice, but we wish to categorically state that such is absolutely not the case,” he said.

According to the former governor’s aide, those circulating the audios and videos online had capitalised on the fact that Ohakim was a politically exposed person to “take advantage” of him.

He said, “This unholy act is reminiscent of previous attempts to clone Dr. Ohakim’s voice in the build up to the 2011 general elections in the state, and sundry false accusations against him. But those who carried out those unholy acts have since recanted, and as a God-fearing man Ohakim has since forgiven them.

“Therefore, we ask that all that come in contact with such audios and videos, both of Ms Amuchienwa and Dr. Ohakim, should discountenance them in their entireties,” he added
