The Bayelsa state police command has arrested Victor Oba, a cousin to former first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan over an attempt to murder his ex-girlfriend, Seigha Atia.
Oba was said to have committed the crime by hitting the ex-lover with his car and left her left leg beyond treatment.
According to reports, Victor heads the former first lady’s hotel, Aridolf Hotels and Spars in Bayelsa state.
Narrating the full story, the ex-girlfriend said:
“On the day of the incident, we had an argument and he called me and asked me to come outside of our gate to get the rest of my things in his car.
“The next thing, he drove his car into me with speed. He hit me against our gate, held me there and did not reverse his car despite the fact that I was screaming in pains.
“He later reversed and I fell to the ground and he zoomed off. My neighbors, who watched what happened screamed for help and came to my rescue. This relationship lasted for four months.
“But I decided to quit when I discovered that he was a violent person. He had hit me once that was when everything started to take a nosedive.“
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Asimim Bytswat, confirmed the arrest and said the matter would soon be charged to court.
