In what may be seen as a smart move to clear the air, Mr. Frank Walter Adogbeji who has been cooling his feet in Police custody over allegation of blackmailing the Biase LGA (Cross River State) Chairman, Mrs. Ada Charles Egwu has been released.
Mr. Frank Walter Adogbeji who resides in Port Harcourt but hails from Delta State had accused the Biase LGA boss of betraying his love for her.
According to details made available to CrossRiverWatch he claims that they had been secret lovers until she won election as Chairman.
Emperor as he is fondly called CrossRiverWatch gathered was in town during the election period which saw her emergence as Biase Council boss, afterwards, she stopped picking his calls.
The heartbroken gentleman who was detained by the Police at the Lemna station by North West filling station is currently on transit home, though it was unclear if his release was from order from above as he was denied bail earlier.
When contacted, Mrs. Ada Charles Egwu told this reporter on phone that, “There is no issue, it’s just someone who was trying to blackmail me so far there is no issue.”
When asked to expatiate on the sort of blackmail she said, “It is an audio discussion I had with Frank many years ago about my friend which already they have sent it to my friend so.”
She denied having hands in his detention saying, “I think the Police are doing their usual job, when asked about the blackmail he said he’s not blackmailing me.”
Furthermore, she maintained that: “I saw online that he said we were to get married, I think he has debunked that, he said he didn’t say so, there is nothing of that nature, he has never said anything of such.”
