So on Facebook, a well meaning female lawyer and probably close family member makes a case for crowning Kevin the Saint of husbands (click here)
The letter is as verbose as the other but it further sheds a little more light on the Onuchukwu home. (To her credit, she did not cast any smear on the late woman).
I summarized the salient points below:
1. Ogochukwu suffers from endometriosis of the lungs. (Endometriosis is a gynecological medical condition in which cells from the lining of the uterus/womb appear and flourish outside the womb, most commonly on the ovaries. Sometimes the cells can pass through the blood to other organs. In Ogochukwu’s case they grew in her lungs – a rare complication)
2. St Kevin knew about her ill-health prior to their marriage but because he loved her, he still went ahead (though she should have been considered to be damaged goods)
3. He spent over 80m in their 12 years of marriage maintaining her health.
4. He provided her with nannies, state of the art cars, drivers so she could live a pampered existence.
5. He never raised his hand at her.
6. Her mother in law worshipped the ground she walked on.
7. Though friends and family had tired of Ogo’s ill health and childlessness, Kevin faithfully stood by her.
8. A doctor had suggested that the removal of Ogochukwu’s ovaries would improve her health but the husband said No. His faith was later justified as they went on to have 2 kids after 7 years of childlessness.
9. Kevin loved his kids and provided well for them.
10. He did not attend his daughter’s christening cause he had to go away on business not cause he rejected the child.
11. His wife’s car is unsold and still parked in their home.
The letter and info on the Ogorip website are .
13. The individuals were probably Ogochukwu’s sisters who were home breakers and opportunists/gold diggers encouraging her to fleece her husband and disobey him
The families of Ogo and Kevin had no love lost between them.
Ogochukwu’s health was a drag on their dear brother's resources.
Due to her sick status it seems she became a pawn used by both her husband and sisters.
The lawyer’s rebuttal doesn’t necessarily mean that Ogochukwu was not an abused wife. Paying huge medical bills isn’t a sign of love (infact it might be a reason for resentment and anger), nor does providing nannies and a driver. Most middle income Nigerian families can afford help/sssss please.
If a doctor thought ovariectomy would resolve her health issues, why didn’t he let her have the procedure? Isn’t it possible that the subsequent childbirths helped to deteriorate her health faster?
Anyway I’m almost sure there will be a 3rd installment from Ogochukwu’s sisters cause they have been made out to be the villains of the piece.
I doubt I’ll read it whenever it surfaces.
