Gay stalker: Edochie family shares insider gist
Between Yul Edochie and Steven Ugochukwu, who is telling the truth? Yul had accused one Steven Ugochukwu of stalking him, and making passes at him. But the said Ugohukwu had come out to refute the accusation that he was only helping Yul and his family to relocate to Canada.
The gay controversy is getting messier by the day and now Yul’s wife has come out to lend her voice to exonerate her husband.
Below is an interview she granted Nigeriafilms.com:
Madam, in as much as it’s affecting your husband, your name was also mentioned in the scenario by this Ugochukwu Steven guy that you sent him mails, what do you have to say to that?
Let me just give you the synopsis, my husband has explained to you already. He started disturbing my husband since last year. At some point, anytime he comes home, his phone will ring from morning till night, I was like who is this person now, he said ‘this person is a psycho.’ Then eventually, the guy has been begging him (Yul) to let him help our family to get a visa to Canada, my husband said no. Then he said that he is not going to disturb him with the gay thing again that let them just be friends, let him just do something as a friend and a fan. So my husband told me, I thought about it and I said okay, there is no harm in trying.
So he sent an agent’s details through my husband’s personal assistant. The agent called me and asked for details and everything, I sent to him all our documents; this was how this guy got our documents. He started the whole visa thing. At some point, he told me that I have to write a test and I went for the test somewhere in Ikeja, I passed the test, I sent it to him. Then along the line, he started with his gay rubbish again. Occasionally, he will send some things through my husband’s PA that nobody asked him to send. He would send recharge cards or whatever on his own without anybody asking. Of course we can afford to buy any amount of recharge cards that we want, but he kept sending to my husband and we have told him, ‘stop all this things, it’s not necessary,’ he continued with his gay whatever. Then he kept calling me that in a day, i will get about 750 calls from one human being.
Do you know why he was calling me? That I should tell my husband that he responds to his advances. So this thing continued for a long time. I can give you my number that if you call nobody could reach me, all my business partners, nobody could reach me. If you call my number, it will tell you ‘number busy’ because of this guy for several months, was calling, until my husband said okay, you have to change your number and he bought another sim card for me, that was how I lost that number. So he couldn’t contact me anymore. He now started posting all those pictures and documents I sent to him for the visa stuff online.
As we speak, he created a profile on facebook with my document. In fact when I woke up this morning, so many people because they don’t have my number anymore because I changed it, they were like please send me your number, I would like to reach you, I was like what is it? They said somebody created a profile using my name and my documents, all my children, everything is there on facebook, my children’s documents, my own documents, my certificate, my passport, everything, the guy is just crazy.
You are saying you sent him the document, but he is saying your husband gave it to him directly?
Yes I gave it to an agent in one of this Yoruba state, whether Ogun or something. There are emails, I sent everything, my husband doesn’t have time, he is not even interested, he doesn’t even know what this visa thing is all about; he does not have time for all of that. I sent them to the agent myself. I sent the hard copy to the agent I think in Ogun state, one Bola but I have forgotten his name. I sent the hard copy to that agent then I sent the soft copy to him. If I check my email, it will still be there.
Then the hard copy was resent to me through DHL, the parcel is still with me in my house from Ogun state or wherever the agent is. So I don’t even know what the guy is talking about. The guy is just crazy. Two or three days ago, he sent me an email; it’s still in my box. He sent me an email of a picture with some naked men and all sorts of things, and told me that it seems he will stop disturbing my husband and start disturbing me, something like that.
I don’t know, okay, look at it this way, if he has issues with my husband, what has it got to do with me? What has it got to do with my children? Okay, this is another way of looking at it, if he has our documents, is it right for anybody to post such documents; my school certificate is there, my birth certificate is there, my travel documents, is it right? It’s not right. Now because his picture is there, he is making noise. Now you don’t want your picture to be online but you want others. He did not start this thing today o, if he posts anything on tweeter, maybe something disgusting and someone ask him, ah ah, why are you doing this person like this, he will cut the person’s picture and put naked picture beside it and do all sorts of things and post it.
This thing started since last year not today but his picture came up recently because my husband got fed up when he displayed my own picture. That was when my husband got fed up like two or three days ago and posted his own picture, so what is he saying? He started posting these documents long before today. If you go online, you will see them, you will see the date and you will see people’s comment and not like we are making all this up or anything. Fine, he said he was going to help to do the visa whatever, we sent our documents, does that give him the right to post it?
This morning, people started calling me, ‘your sensitive documents are online, what is it’ in fact somebody had to report that account before even getting to me. The person told me, a friend of mine that immediately she saw it, she knew that maybe it was a scam or something, she reported the account and they blocked it. But that is not the end of it because he can create so many other accounts. He is already chatting with my brother in Germany, he is chatting with people in my contact telling them rubbish. So the guy, something is just wrong with him, he is just crazy.
After May Edochie had expressed her displeasure to Nigeriafilms.com over the whole matter and how they have been framed up, her husband who was still angry at the unfolding situation, stood his ground on the effect of what the guy has done to his family.
Yul: Don’t mind him; he is trying to look for a way to exonerate himself. I have sent his pictures to the Police, Immigration, I have sent it to Canada, I have investigators, I will track down that boy, bring him down here and lock him up. If I am lying against him like I have told you, I swear with my life, let me sleep this night and not wake up, but since that boy is trying to tarnish my image, God will fire him. I give him one week, that stupid boy will collapse. I will bring him down to Nigeria.
Hello, you are saying something sensitive, how will that be possible?
That is to show you how bad it is. If you are messing with me, I can forgive you but not when you are messing with my wife or my children. I give you documents that you want to use to give visa, you take my documents and post online, you are messing with my children and my family. Somebody like me, I have a reputation, I have a family, I have a name, I have my father’s name, so far, there hasn’t been something bad about me. If you come to my house, I will show you messages that this boy sent to me that he is going to destroy the good name I have, the messages are on my phone, if you come to my place, I will show you the messages. For me to speak like this you then you should know that it is not a joke.
