The estranged wife of the Enugu State Governor, Mrs. Clara Chime has revealed that she was existing in a toxic stew of a miserable marriage to Gov. Sullivan Chime.

Speaking on Channels Television, Mrs. Chime said she “suffered from depression and the treatment I got from my husband led to it.”

She however, denied having mental problem.

Mrs. Chime who has moved out of Government House said she is “now liberated” and thanked Nigerians for their support while her ordeal lasted.

She said: “He (Gov.Chime) accused me of so many things, like he told the whole world that I had mental problem; he told people that my friends are into diabolical stuff.

“I don’t know where he got that from. That is why I don’t know what to say about my husband.

“All I can tell him is that I wish him all the best in this life and the life to come because he is the father of my son.”

She said she was happy to regain her freedom.

“I’m just happy. I just couldn’t believe that one day I would be myself or be happy this way.

“I’ve gained a lot of weight. I’m going to get back to my normal size. It’s the drug that they gave me that caused this. The doctor in the UK told me that it was wrong medication because that is not what I’m suffering from.

“I’m suffering from reactive depression. If your husband is not there for you, nobody is there for you, my dear you will break down.”

Her case blew into the open after she contacted Lagos lawyer, Mr. Femi Falan (SAN), and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to get her out of confinement.
