These are not the best of times for former Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and his former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) Ovuzorie Macaulay as they are currently at loggerhead but keeping it from the public to avoid shame; sources in the know have revealed to Secret Reporters.
According to information gathered by this medium, Macualay accused his wife Stella of allegedly having an affair with Uduaghan. This suspicious arose when Stella reported Macaulay to Uduaghan to caution him on yet to be identified reasons, but the erstwhile SSG didn’t take it likely with his former boss.
A source stated that Stella told her husband to ever be grateful to Uduaghan for picking him from the gutters and making him the billionaire he has become, instead of accusing an innocent man.
“Macaulay, how dare you accuse me of sleeping with your wife? The billions you have today, I Uduaghan do not have it and have never done anything with your wife, yet you accuse me of doing so”, the immediate past governor reportedly told Macaulay.
Miffed by this development, he went to a court faraway in Ogun State to file for divorce instead of Delta to avoid it becoming a public knowledge as well as save his children from the trauma the expose will cause around town.
Stella in retaliation filed a countersuit against Macaulay accusing him of being a government fraudster who made all his money via looting. She allegedly also petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), where she revealed that the embattled husband has eleven houses in London and other ones abroad.
While in office, she also revealed that Macaulay used her company to divert N430 million from the Delta State coffers, which led to her invitation alongside Uduaghan to the commission where they took side against Macaulay who committed the fraud.
Calls placed to Uduaghan and Macaulay persistently to get their own side of the report were not picked neither did they return the call before press time.
Why not exhibit and annex the respective originating processes (court papers) reportedly filed by Macaulay and his wife to give your report a more persuasive bite. Not saying your report is mendacious. Verifiability is value-added. You know, certified copies of the papers filed in the Court in Ogun State, being public documents, can easily be applied for and obtained by you.
