Wife of the Enugu State Governor, Clara Chime
Wife of the Enugu State Governor, Sullivan Chime, Clara, has faulted the report of the National Human Rights Commission on her incarceration by her husband. She said the report was set to damage her reputation.
This was contained in a letter of complaint she wrote to her lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN, which was made available to SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday.
The NHRC had on Friday released a preliminary report on its investigations into Clara’s complaints of rights abuse.
Speaking on the report, the Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Bem Angwe, said the bone of contention between Chime and his wife was a disagreement over the procedure for the treatment of her occasional hallucinations and depression.
...
However, Clara, in the letter, said, “I am very disappointed to read what has been narrated by the National Human Rights Commission.
...
Following the petition, the NHRC had written Chime, demanding access to his wife.
...
The NHRC scribe said the panel held private discussions with Chime, the complainant, Clara; the governor’s sibling, Dr. Jide Chime; the First Lady’s physician, Dr. Aham Agumoh; and her elder brother, Tony Igwe.
...
Another person was one Dr. A. Uzegu, a London-based consultant psychiatrist and forensic examiner, who is the doctor preferred by Clara, through teleconference.
Angwe confirmed that for the last two weeks, Clara had been confined to her apartment on medical advice for purposes of medical maintenance and security.

If Chime failed to respond to allega­tions of spousal abuse directed against him in the public sphere, his family’s name would have been severely dam­aged. Silence on his part could have been interpreted, as the mark of an arrogant and abusive husband, who takes pleasure in mistreating his wife. In that case, rumour merchants could have embellished news reports about the relationship between Chime and his wife. All these would seem to justify Chime’s decision to hold a press conference last week.
In 2012 when he slipped out of the country secretly to undergo medical treat­ment in London for cancer of the nose, he was followed by rumours of his demise and other unpleasant stories that mocked the state of his health. Last week, Chime decided he must do something to end ru­mours that suggested he was maltreating his wife. To prove his innocence, Chime brought to the press conference his broth­er and sister, his wife, his wife’s brother, including his wife’s neuro-psychiatrist.
The case between Chime and his wife has gone beyond a matter between a husband and wife. Other outside players are now involved.
...
Does Falana have a briefing from Mrs. Chime to represent and free her from the alleged illegal detention at the Govern­ment House, Enugu?
...
Chime, as the husband of Clara, is in an even more precarious situation.
...
At the press conference last week, Chime made some insightful comments, such as: “Would I have been a better husband if I asked her to leave the lodge because of her medical challenges? ... I wanted the best for her and that’s why I pleaded with the doctors to have her treated at home. That is also why I allowed her access to her telephone and laptop, which unfortunately led to the stage where I’m now being falsely accused of imprisoning or detaining my own wife.â€
Chime is in a Catch-22 situation. He would be damned if he acted to help his ailing wife. He would also be damned if he didn’t do anything to assist his wife. In fact, if he did nothing, he would have been perceived as a callous husband.
...
Did Mrs Chime understand that her detention was in her best interests?
...
Could this case have been resolved much earlier if Mrs Chime observed tradi­tional norms and practices by approaching the elders in her husband’s community or even her husband’s kith and kin to seek their intervention?
There are more puzzles. At the press conference on Tuesday, 5 November 2013, Mrs Chime denied engaging Falana to represent and free her from detention in the Government House, Enugu.
...
According to the Punch of Friday, 8 November 2013, Falana said: “With respect to Mrs. Clara Chime, I wish to say, without any fear of contradiction, that I have her instructions in writing to challenge her illegal detention at the Gov­ernment House, Enugu.†This declaration makes the entire case confusing.
...
Even as Chime, his wife and Falana en­gage in a tangled web of exchanges about who did what, when and what prompted their actions, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has weighed into the dispute. The NHRC said last Friday (8 November 2013) it had investigated com­plaints lodged by Mrs Chime in which she alleged that her rights were being abused. The commission said the cause of the mis­understanding between Governor Chime and his wife was the process adopted in the treatment of her “hallucinations and depressionâ€.
Mrs Chime reacted angrily last Satur­day to the way the NHRC described her medical condition.
In a report published in the Punch on Sunday (10 November 2013), Mrs Chime complained to Falana, her lawyer, that the National Human Rights Commission has cast aspersions on her person in its preliminary report.
...
In her complaint, Mrs Chime was reported to have written: “I am very disappointed to read what has been narrated by the National Human Rights Commission. Apart from the fact that the information was largely false, it showed lack of sensitivity in publishing sensitive medical detail... It is as though the commission set out to ridicule me. I made it clear to them that I had a nervous breakdown and found it inexplicable as to how hallucinations featured as part of my symptoms.â€
Embarrassed by the blunder contained in its preliminary report, the National Hu­man Rights Commission moved quickly last Sunday to deny that it said that Mrs Chime had any health challenges. The NHRC blamed the media for the inac­curacies in reporting the preliminary report. The commission said in its denial published in the Punch two days ago (Monday, 11 November 2013): “The commission... has never claimed to have established that Mrs. Chime has health challenges. The attention of the National Human Rights Commission has been drawn to media reports which suggested that the commission had established that Chime, suffers from health challenges. This implies that the commission is biased and has already taken a decision on her complaint, which is far from the truth. The National Human Rights Commission has yet to reach a determination on the peti­tion received from Mrs. Chime.â€
Although Mrs Chime claimed dur­ing her husband’s press conference on Tuesday last week that she did not contact any lawyer or lodged a petition with the human rights commission, it is now apparent from the NHRC’s press release that Mrs Chime did indeed lodge a petition with the NHRC.
Both Falana and the NHRC must not exploit the medical condition of Mrs Chime to escalate this problem through their com­ments and statements to the media. Governor Chime has admitted his wife has a health problem. Mrs Clara Chime has also confirmed that she has some health problems.

...
A statement by Chukwudi Achife, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Sullivan Chime, said the government was appalled at the way facts relating to the activists' case had been misrepresented, stressing that the duo were being remanded and prosecuted before a court of competent jurisdiction with respect to a case they had with the police authorities in Enugu and not the state government.
