*Thrown out of matrimonial home
*Beaten up by husband at Federal Palace Hotel
*Police ‘arrest’ couple
International Energy Insurance big babe, Chinwe Orakwue, has been banished from her matrimonial home of 12 years. Her husband, Azubuike Orakwue, MD/CEO of AZT Furniture Company Limited, humiliated her out of their Wole Ariyo Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos residence on Friday, January 11, 2013, alongside her mother who had come visiting the couple.
Alleging serial adultery and also engaging in fetish practices, neighbours and passersby watched as Chinwe and her mother were marched out of what used to be her home by her husband and some of his friends. With her belongings scattered here and there on the street, Chinwe, amidst sobs, managed to get herself composed a little bit before finally convincing a Danfo driver to ferry her and her mother out of the vicinity.
Interestingly, her husband ran into her on Sunday, January 20, 2012 at the Federal Palace Hotel, Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos where she was allegedly lodged by one of her lovers and another fight ensued. The fight was so bloody that policemen, from the Bar Beach Police Station had to step in. Shedding more light on the Federal Palace Hotel drama, a source who witnessed it told us that Azubuike or Zubby like his friends call him had gone to the hotel with two of his buddies to have their breakfast. But while trying to tuck in his car properly at the car park, he sighted his wife’s gray Cherokee jeep with registration number GL 687 AAA already parked there. Surprised, he made some enquiries and was told by the security men that the jeep was there overnight. It was while having his breakfast with his friends that his wife showed up to also have hers, an argument ensued, which became bloody at some point, forcing policemen to be invited into the matter. The estranged couple returned to the police station again on Tuesday, January 29, after Zubby discovered what he claimed was a ‘Juju cache’ left behind by his wife and with which she had been manipulating him. The police is now looking into the matter. Narrating the genesis of their marital crisis, a close friend of the couple told us that it had been on for long and only came into the open recently.
“You know that Zubby is my good friend?” The insider had begun. “He told me that this mess started in 2005 while he was in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State and the woman was here in Lagos. As a matter of fact, he said he was tipped off by some Lekki residents. He confronted the woman, she confessed and he was devastated. It was so bad then that he didn’t want to continue with the marriage, but his mother eventually prevailed on him to forgive her, which he did. However, for one year, they lived under one roof but weren’t making love. It took the advice of one Bishop…to get him to start making love to her again. From there, things returned to what seemed like normal before this latest expose, which actually became obvious sometime in June last year after a secret ‘tracker’ in the woman’s jeep revealed all sorts of things.
“Too many names have already cropped up among the woman’s alleged lovers. There is a 72-year-old Lebanese who is into commodities. His name is Talai and according to findings, he had been dating Chinwe since her undergraduate days at UNILAG. There’s also this Igbo businessman called Iyke, from Anambra State who is into oil servicing. Clear Essence Hotel on Alexander Road, Ikoyi and a service apartment on Lugard Avenue, also in Ikoyi, are two of their love havens. Ironically, this guy’s wife is also Chinwe’s friend. But don’t let us talk about that now. Too many names, too many names…
“It’s just that Zubby was caged with ‘Jazz’. Otherwise his wife’s flamboyant lifestyle would have given her away. She carries some of the most expensive handbags you can think of; her wristwatches are strictly Rolex and Chopard and she flies only Business Class anytime she’s travelling. Guess What? Any time she’s going on such trips, both here and abroad, she will tell Zubby that she’s going for marketing. The story is just so, so messy”.
Mrs. Chinwe Orakwue (nee Okekeze) is from Umuoji in Anambra State. A 2002 Physics graduate of the University of Lagos, she is 34-years-old and a mother of one girl, Adaora. Very, very popular in UNILAG, she had a Toyota Tercel car she was driving then – which was allegedly bought for her by the Lebanese. Currently in the Corporate Communications department of International Energy Insurance, she is always expensively attired and sometimes provocatively dressed.
Zubby, on the other hand, is 50 and hails from Onitsha, also in Anambra State. A very good friend of former Governor Orji Uzor Kalu of Abia State and Obigbo leader, Chief Charles Ahize, he owns AZT Limited, a multi-million naira furniture company with branches here and there. Contacted on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at exactly 2.01pm, Mrs. Orakwe banged the phone on us after being told the reason we called and also querying us how we came about her number. “How did you get my number? Who gave you my number?” Her husband only blurted: “Thanks for calling. I appreciate the level of professionalism you have exhibited by getting across to me, but the truth is, I have no comments for now”.
