”A lot has happened and I will like to shed more light on how I got involved and how things got to this point.
“My dad died so many years ago, he was a Nigerian army and a good friend to Mr Ibu, who is now a father figure in my life. After my dad’s death, Mr Ibu has been playing a father figure role in my life. In 2018, I left the country to look for greener pastures, and from there I relocated to Cyprus where I was studying law.
“In 2020, Mr Ibu started requesting financial assistance from me on chat and I was surprised because he was doing well and almost at the peak of his career before I left. He now opened up to me that he was sick and was in Abuja, while his wife was in Lagos I requested to call her and she told me that Mr Ibu had left the house for over two years.
“I didn’t want to speak but things have gotten to a point that I have to speak up my truth”.
