I Suspect Foul Play in My Son’s Death, Says Stella Oduah’s Estranged Husband

Lt. Col. Satchie Etoromi (rtd), the estranged husband of the former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, yesterday said he suspected foul play in the death of his son, Maxwell Toritseju Etoromi.

He said that controversies surrounding his death would be investigated and urged the appropriate security agencies to take up the matter.

Just as he was grieving over the death of Maxwell, another of his son, Tuoyo Etoromi Oduah, has added more sorrow for his father saying he would rather be a bastard than to be called his son.

Tuoyo had, in a letter to his father, a copy of which was made available to newsmen, disowned his father, insisting that he would rather be a bastard than be called his son.

He had accused his father of being an attention seeker over his brother’s death.

But the retired Army officer fired back, imploring his son to retrace his steps and not allow himself to be used by his mother.

Chief Etoromi in his statement to his son wrote: “Eyituoyo my son, they have misled you. When Omabuwa came home last year, Stella, your mother told me to call you to come home. She gave me your phone number. She said you were in the United States of America and don’t answer calls. All calls to that your phone were not answered. I believe Omabuwa was killed, that is why Stella refused to tell me.

“The stories about how Stella took you away need not be told now. The grief that my son, Omabuwa, who was contacted by your junior sister, Valentina Omawumi Etoromi, and who came home, is dead is too much a pain for me now. Stella should bring our kids home. I want to bury Omabuwa who is now late, and you my lovely son, Eyituoyo should come home.

“I married Stella traditionally and under Ibo marriage law, every child she has before my dowry is returned belongs to me. It is Stella and not yourself who should tell me that my son, Omabuwa, your senior brother is dead.”
Etoromi added: “You said you offered flight tickets and accommodation to attend the burial and funeral of my son. Burial where? Do you have flight infrastructure at Akili Ozizor now? Is it Ibo culture for a woman whose dowry was paid to take her children’s corpse to her home town? That is abomination. The controversies surrounding Omabuwa’s death will be investigated.

“My son, do not allow yourself to be dragged into what you do not have knowledge. Could it be that Omabuwa was killed because he came home? This is not the time to talk. May the Almighty God grant us His mercies, show us light that will make us know the truth. Amen.

“Eyituoyo, I am not Mr Satchie Etoromi. I was commissioned into the Nigerian Army and attained the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before Stella came into my life. I was also conferred with a chieftaincy title when she was with me. It is a pity that you were not told my status in life. You will know I am not a nonentity as you were made to believe.

“My marriage with Stella was not short. She moved out of our home 19 years ago and so her telling you she divorced me 30 years ago is another big lie. How old are you? So why did she tell you all these lies? I am an incorruptible and disciplined officer and gentleman and you shall be proud that my blood flows in your veins when the truth becomes public knowledge.

“I was a polygamous man before Stella married me. I married many wives and it is a custom of our people. His Royal Highness, Igwe Oduah 1 of blessed memory had many wives too, so what did I do wrong? When Stella took you and everything away, in humility I prayed for the Almighty God’s mercy.

“Must she not do the needful and bring you to me? The Almighty God shall judge. I am your father. Bring Omabuwa home and come with him. I am not threatening you nor your mother. May the Almighty God bless you my son. All will be well.”

Dats why its good to always hear from d two side of every story. Dis guy need yo go and apologise to his father. And I have never heard dat a full grown man shld be buried in his mother land wen d father is still alive. D child was not a bastard or product of baby factory so why will she take him to her Igbo land instead of d fathers. Since I read d story for s first time how d young man died, I never believe ordinary drug for tooth ache can go wrong talk more of killing d person. D truth shall come out someday.

Lol. Who says a wrong drug administered on toothache cannot kill? The truth is that we have not heard the true story. For Stella to have the gut to bury her son in her homeland simply means whatever must have happened is strong. Lets even say they parted ways 19years ago, why haven't he made effort to reconcile with his sons all da while? In law court, when you leave a child in the custody of a mother for like 5years , the father has no control over that child anymore. I don't know if its applicable to adults too.
