There`s this popular saying that, poverty don’t ever kill but riches do. That’s exactly the situation with one of the wives of a Nigerian governor who`s presently biting her fingers for looking for comforter when she`s comfortably off.
It is a story of the First Lady of Cross Rivers State, Obioma Liyel-Imoke who`s said to be dying of an infection caused by tapeworm ingested in her system by some Indian specialists 2 years ago during one of her adventures to cut her size.
It would be recalled that, the wealthy woman who owns the popular ValueMart in Victoria Island, Lagos was a size 18 before her husband became the governor of Cross Rivers State and no sooner the handsome man was sworn in than the wife, Obioma began shopping for suitable specialist hospital abroad where she could burn excess fat and reduce her size drastically to allow her compete probably with girls in the range of 12-14.
And alas! The First Lady made a fantastic appearance when she walked majestically on stage in 2010 during her speech on the debut ceremony of the Calabar festival which was held in Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos, she was really looking dashing in a lovely size 14 gown, her cute and lovely physique was no doubt the subject of the day amongst society ladies in attendance as they were all marveled at the mystique behind her reduction from size 18 to 14.
She has since then dazzled in several events turning heads with her skin which is always festooned in expensive ornaments like diamond, gold and the likes coupled with top of the range designer wears, bags, wrist watches and what have you.
Two years down the line, we gathered reliably that the First Lady allegedly began to emaciate, at first, she was enjoying it as she was even said to be preparing to shop for a smaller size before bubble burst recently.
Dependable sources who`re feeling the First Lady`s pulse have disclosed that, the woman is not finding it funny as she now suffers pain in her bone marrow and some of her joints, this was what eventually informed her decision to go back to the hospital in Indian where she heard the shocking news of her life.
According to inside sources, the doctors were said to have been so mad at the First Lady for refusing to keep to instructions after her liposuction surgery in 2010. We were reliably informed that, the First Lady had been asked to come back in 3 months after the Tapeworm had been ingested into her system because the parasite was only meant to burn fat in her bowel for some months after which the treatment continues but the moment the First Lady saw the wonder of the blade, she forgot to go back to complete her treatment. We however tried to get in touch with the people we know at the Cross Rivers State Government House but the response we got is that the Governor has changed everybody on that beat and the new people are not on ground yet. Our source who`s very close to the First Lady has promised to keep informing us as events unfold.
