Ex- President Jonathan’s Minister’s Son Beats Wife… Marriage Crashes

Prof. Viola Adaku OnwuliriSon and wife

The daughter in-law to Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan’s female Minister of

State Foreign Affairs and later State Education, Christina Onwuliri has
accused her mother in-law, Lady Viola Onwuliri of undue interference in
the affairs of her home, whereby posing herself as a decision maker before
issues of husband and wife would be carried out.

According to her, the former Minister made herself a mini-god in the lives
of her male children, particularly her husband, Chukwuemeka Osmond Eleihe
Onwuliri which makes it unbearable for their wives to handle family issues
without the widowed former Minister’s interference.

Barely five years after their marriage, Christina stated that it’s been
war between her, the former minister and son over her undue and unhealthy
interference in the relationship of her children’s marriages.

“Since our marriage was contracted, my mother in-law has continually
decided what happens in my home, thereby having undue and unhealthy
interference in the relationship with my husband.

“Between 2011 and 2014, while I was living in Port Harcourt with my
husband, he physically and mentally abused me. For example, when arguments concerning on way forward in the marriage, he gets infuriated and
physically beats me and locks me up in the toilet for as long as he
wishes,” she stated.

As informed, the current happenings which has escalated to the very level
of the daughter in-law being locked out of her matrimonial home by her
husband after being manhandled and abused by him has been a matter of
review before the Nigeria Police and Human Right office in Abuja.

Not only that the former Minister influenced the reason to what made her
son to lock his fully married wife out from their matrimonial home, she
also went further to separate the daughter in-law from her two daughters
who are of two and three years old through alleged abduction.

“In another interference of my mother in-law, she said that my husband is
not obliged to keep me in Canada where we based or elsewhere in the world.
And after this encounter with her, my husband told me we will be visiting
Nigeria in February. I had no misgivings about it.

“When we arrived to the family house in Owerri, I noticed the presence of
a Catholic priest, a serving Honourable member of the State House of
Assembly and few others that I don’t know their names. Later, I noticed
that my husband picked up a bag and was leaving without informing me. Cautiously, I approached him to know where he was going, but to my
greatest surprise, he violently pushed me into a room and locked me up.

“At that point, I saw those men taking my children away without my
consent. Then, I started screaming and was helpless but had no option than
to start breaking the window panes in the room to get myself out. When
they saw I was breaking the glasses, one of the drivers opened the door
and I came out shouting for help, and then my children were nowhere to be

Furthermore, she stressed that they equally seized her academic papers,
traveling passports, Canadian residential documents alongside her personal belongings. A plan Lady Onwuliri perfectly carried out with the help of the above mentioned cohorts.

Over the failed move by the Nigeria Police to intervene into the matter,
she said that the State Commissioner of Police in Imo State withdrew his
men from it, even as he tagged it a marital issue that the command
cannot handle.

Sensing foul play in the handling of her case, she called on the Human
Right Commission to thoroughly investigate the matter as against running out of human control.
