Woman, 42, narrates how police commissioner impregnated, abandoned her with baby in Nasarawa

Published

A 42-year old woman has narrated how a commissioner of police in Nasarawa abandoned her while she was pregnant and returned to his home town in Ogun state upon his retirement.

The woman identified as Ms Wanger Eunice Iortile spoke expressly on how her once sweet relationship 17 years ago quickly turned into a nightmare in no time.

Fatai Shittu, then a Commissioner of Police in Nasarawa State allegedly abandoned Eunice and left her alone to fend for herself and their now eight-year-old boy David.

In the company of her only son, Ms Wanger Eunice Iortile, 42, sat quietly under the tattered roof of her austere beer parlour at Mammy Market, opposite Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia.

She was completely oblivious of the usually gay atmosphere around her shop as she cuddled his one and only eight-year-old son.

The baby boy, according to her, is a product of the years of intimate relationship he had with a now-retired Commissioner of Police named Fatai Shittu while the latter was serving in Nasarawa State.

On his part, David, the eight-year-old product of the ill-fated affair, munched away on sweets in childhood innocence as if there was nothing in life to worry about.

But the reality, according to his distraught mother, is that his father had abandoned him from the cradle and refused to be part of his life.

The situation has virtually turned Eunice into a recluse, such that not even the reporter had an inkling of the hell she was going through until she began to narrate her ordeal.

According to her, her hot romance with Shittu was the envy of many when they hit it off in Abuja about 17 years ago. But she recalled in an emotive voice that the past 11 years can be summed up as the worst of her life.

If she knew, she said, she would have heeded the retired police officer’s insistence that she should abort the pregnancy.

She said:

“He (Shittu) is the father of my only son, but he left me even before the boy was born.

“My son and I have been through a very rough patch.

“It got to a point that I asked myself if Fatai Shittu is still the man I so much loved and we had the best of time together.”

Wiping tears off her eyes with the back of her hand as she spoke, she continued: “He was my best friend and we had a beautiful love affair. I met Fatai Shittu in Abuja (Wuse 11) in 2003. He was staying in the Kwara State Government Lodge, and we dated for nine years before I got pregnant for him.

“He used to patronise my elder sister’s drinking joint in Wuse II. That was where I met him and we started the relationship.

“When he was later transferred to the Ebonyi State Police Command in 2006, we went together and spent about a year there before he was transferred back to Abuja.

“I was like a wife to him because his family stays in Ogun State where he comes from.

“We were so close, and within this period, I never dated any other man until in 2010 when I took in for him.

“He threatened me and tried to force me to have an abortion but I refused.

“He insisted that I should abort the pregnancy because he was about to retire from the service to meet his family in Ogun State.

“When I refused to abort the pregnancy, he told me that if I was delivered of a baby girl, he would take it because he didn’t have a girl among his children. But if it was a baby boy, he would not take it.

“After a heated argument, he agreed to take responsibility for the baby.

“Before then, he had given me N30,000 to abort the pregnancy, but I refused.

“He eventually retired in 2010 as a Commissioner of Police at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

“When he was relocating to his village in Ogun State, he gave me N150,000 to take care of myself and start a business, promising to take care of the baby when delivered. We were in constant touch on the phone.

“On July 3, 2011, I was delivered of a baby boy through CS (Caesarian Section) at the National

hospital Abuja. My hospital bill was N467,000, but he only sent N125,000 for me to settle the bill.

“Since then, he stopped picking my calls until in April 2018 when he picked it and told me not to disturb him again as he was enjoying his retirement with his family in Ogun State.

“Since then, I have shut myself within me. It has been an immense emotional damage and I have been carrying all the stress of life by myself.

“He has refused to hear me out. I wanted him to hear me out, to show that he cares about how I feel and to notice what I am going through.”

Eunice recalled that life became so difficult for her in Abuja that taking care of herself and her little boy became difficult.

She said:

“I decided to relocate to Lafia in January 2017 to start a beer parlour. But it is not moving, and I can’t afford the little boy’s school fees and take care of his needs.

“I’m going through a very rough patch.

“If he denies that he is not my son’s father, let him come so that we can go for a DNA test. Where does he want me to take his son to?

“He is the biological father of my son, and it is better he comes out and takes responsibility.”

Lending his voice to his mother’s cry that his father should have a rethink, eight-year-old David said in an emotion-laden voice:

“My father left us even before I was born. My mother was rejected and was alone when she delivered me.

“My father rejected the pregnancy but my mother refused to abort it. As a single parent, my mum summoned courage to bring me up.

“How I wish I knew my father! How I wish I met him! I was still in my mother’s womb when he fled and refused to take responsibility.

“Imagine the trauma of growing up without a father!

“But I thank God for the gift of a good mother. She sold her clothes and did all sorts of menial Jobs to take care of me.

“She has had to borrow money from people which resulted in so many insults and humiliation, just for her to see me through school.

She is doing her best to fill the vacuum left by my father who is enjoying his retirement in Ogun State and has refused to set his eyes on me or hear my voice.”

‘I want to become a lawyer’

David, a Primary 3 pupil, says his ambition is to become a lawyer or a reverend father when he grows up. He appealed to CP Shittu (rtd) to temper justice with mercy if his mother offended him and pick him up so that he would know his place of origin.

“I’m so much missing my daddy. I don’t know why he rejected me. My future is bright,” he said, bursting into tears.

Eunice said her dilemma now is that her son is very keen on meeting his father.

“He (Shittu) has not seen him since he was born, and he is being harassed in school because he cannot tell his school mates who his father is.

“He is nagging and I don’t think he is going to let go of this until he gets to the bottom of the matter.

“Even as little as he is, he is very intelligent and doing very well in school.

“I don’t just know what to do now as his father has refused to see him or hear from him.

“Initially, he was schooling at New Age Academy School in Lafia. The school fee was N12,000 but I cannot afford it now, so I transferred him to Eunice Christian Academy, Lafia where the school fee is N7,000 per term.

“Yet it is not easy to pay and still take care of his other needs.

“He constantly tells me he wants to be a lawyer or a reverend father.”

CP Shittu’s reaction

Contacted on his mobile phone by newsmen, CP Shittu (rtd) admitted knowing Eunice.

He, however, said he was not in the mood to respond to the reporter’s enquiries because he was busy.

“I know the woman you are talking about. I also know about the pregnancy,” he said. “But I’m very busy now. Let us talk later.”

However, subsequent calls made to his phone went unanswered.

Finally, Trump wears a mask in public

Published

on

 U.S. President Donald Trump surprised the world by wearing a mask in public for the first time since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Trump had previously refused to wear masks in public, although he had said he would if in a crowd and could not maintain physical distance from others.

He had come under sharp criticisms even from his fellow Republican Party members, who said his stance showed a lack of example or leadership.

He finally did that during a visit to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre outside Washington where he met wounded soldiers and frontline healthcare workers.

However, Trump did not mention the coronavirus as a reason for wearing the mask.

“I’ve never been against masks but I do believe they have a time and a place,” he said earlier before leaving the White House.

Later, he said wearing a mask was the right thing to do “when you’re in a hospital … where you’re talking to a lot of soldiers and people that, in some cases, just got off the operating tables.

“I think it’s a great thing to wear a mask,” he declared.

Public health officials and institutions have been urging people to use masks to slow the spread of the virus.

As of Friday, the disease had claimed no fewer than 134,000 lives in the U.S., which has recorded no fewer than three million infections.

Arowolo had alleged that she was been manhandled and given inhuman treatment where she worked as a slave in Lebanon by her enslaver, a situation that brought on her so many allegations by her boss.
The Newsmen gathered that Arowolo’s refusal to allow the husband of her boss to sleep with her inflicted some injury on him, and she (Arowolo) was charged for attempted murder and theft by the Lebanon police.
Newsmen also gathered that Arowolo was in the custody of Lebanon police where she released her ordeal video, which later caught the attention of the Nigerian government.
NAN also gathered that the veracity of the video made the Nigerian government to contact its Lebanese counterpart, and the country Ambassador to Nigeria promised to instigate the release of the lady.
Meanwhile, while welcoming her at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, by the NAPTIP Director-General Julie Okah-Donli and other government officials, the director-general vowed to go after the traffickers.
She also said that the victim was going to be rehabilitated by the agency in its shelter and thereafter be empowered.
According to her, Arowolo will first of all be quarantined for two weeks as the law stipulated for now, and thereafter, she will be taken to the agency shelter.
“We have to counsel her and rehabilitate her and thereafter, empower her, the job of arresting her traffickers will be done after profiling her properly.
“We will counsel her and get the necessary information from her that will lead us to the arrest of her traffickers for prosecution, we will ensure justice for her, none of the traffickers will go scot-free.
“She is going to be an ambassador of NAPTIP,” the director-general said.
Arowolo, who spoke with newsmen about her ordeal in Lebanon, advised ladies to stay back in Nigeria and do whatever destiny has given them.
“Going outside there was like a hell, even not only Lebanon but what I experienced in Lebanon, I pray for my enemy not to experience that,” she said.
