‘Why Fake Soldier’s Boyfriend Exposed Her

The man who exposed his girlfriend, Angela Omieh, to the military authorities as a fake soldier did so because the lady insisted on recovering the N300,000 she gave to him for their aborted wedding, a businessman, Anthony Nworgu, has said.

Nworgu, an in-law to Omieh, explained that Collins Jegede had planned to marry the lady and fixed February 28, 2014 for the wedding, but changed his mind when another lady showed up in his life.

The businessman, who is married to one of Omieh’s sisters, explained that arrangement had been put in place for the wedding in Cross River State, adding that Jegede had also visited the family members before dumping the lady.

Nworgu, who condemned Omieh for posing as a soldier, also described Jegede as a deceitful man with “unclean hands,” insisting that he betrayed his ex-fiancée to the authorities because she wanted the refund of the money she gave him for the wedding.

The 323 Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army, Akure, Ondo State, had last week paraded Omieh for posing as a soldier. Sets of military uniform, police extract and a sworn affidavit for loss of her military identity card were said to have been found with her.

The Public Relations Officer of the brigade, Captain Ademola Adegoke, had said Omieh was arrested following a report by her boyfriend, adding that the suspect was also discovered to be in possession of two camouflage T-shirt and a pair of shorts, one pair of desert boot, one jungle hat and three handsets.

But Nworgu, who spoke to our correspondent on Friday in Abuja, stated that Jegede had promised to refund the money, but defaulted several times, adding that a traditional ruler even intervened in the matter.

He said, “I don’t support what Angela (Omieh) did because her action was evil; why should she pose as a soldier when she is not one. But at the same time, the whole world should know that Jegede planned to marry a fake soldier and had even fixed February 28 for the wedding before he changed his mind when his old girlfriend showed up.

“He exposed Angela to the military authorities because she insisted on recovering the N300,000 she gave to him for their wedding. What was his intention in planning to marry a fake soldier? Angela also claimed that she bought the uniform from Army depot in Zaria, I expect the authorities to investigate and arrest those selling the uniforms; the case should not just stop at parading Angela.”

When contacted, Jegede who claimed to be in church denied collecting money from his ex-fiancée.

“I don’t know what you are talking about; it is a blatant lie. Please I am in church now, I can’t say more than that,” he said over the telephone on Sunday.
