Chairperson of the Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL), Dilichukwu Onyedinma, must be a mean and very wicked woman. She is in the centre of a brewing crisis and scandal of using her position to send a family man to jail for three years because he had an accident with a car she sold to him on hire purchase.
The man, Sadiq Abdulraheem, has been in jail for sometime now. His wife and children are in a big mess. They have suffered untold hardship.
Ironically, in a bid to appeal the judgement with which he was sentenced to jail, the judgement and proceedings by the Magistrate court that sentenced Sadiq to prison could not be found!
His family had been in throes ever since. A group of social workers had been reached and they had figured to go to a High Court on appeal to quash the sentence but they have been hoodwinked because the proceedings that resulted in the judgment that sentenced Sadiq to jail cannot be located for the past two months.
According to the wife of Sadiq, the madam (Onyedinma) gave a vehicle to my husband on hire purchase. The vehicle had an accident that first month. Onyedinma was informed. She got angry and got him arrested, detained and charged to court.
He was charged for criminal breach of trust on three counts. He was summarily found guilty on all three counts and sentenced to one year each, to run concurrently. Ever since then he has been in jail.
Where the fears of the family and the social workers now extends is, if he is released after serving his sentence as a result, he may be sentenced for a longer term as she has promised us because he is to pay compensation of N950,000 at the end of sentence!
The weeping wife, frail and taunted by extreme poverty and suffering said in tears freely flowing down her cheeks, “cash that he could not pay whilst out, how can he be expected to pay whilst coming out of the prison?”
She continued, “from all indications, he will be sentenced again for failure to pay whilst in prison! We had been promised that he will be re-arrested and taken to court and sentenced back to jail until the value of the car is settled.
For over six weeks, SMS messages and an e-mail were sent to Mre Dilichukwu Onyedinma to avail this newspaper of her own side of the story. She refused to reply any such media used to reach her.
