In a recent interview, Chibuzor Opara, the older brother of the late Claret Opara-Bassey, the lawyer from Calabar who died in an accident while pursuing her husband and his lover, suggested that there may be more to the motive behind the hunt.
He disclosed that after his sister’s husband informed her that he was leaving on vacation, she received a call informing her that her husband had been seen in town with another woman.
He also admitted that the informant is to blame for the untimely death of his sister.
In his words: “I don’t know whether it is a case but it was that person that caused all this. Somebody must have seen him and called her (Claret), having told the wife that he was travelling, and then due to the other factor that I don’t want to talk about”.
He added: “The real reason why she went out to catch them (her husband and the alleged ‘side chick’) is something I may not be able to disclose at the moment but what has happened has happened. Let men learn to respect their marriages.”
