According to Vanguard, family sources claim that Chidinma who is not from a broken home as she insinuated, disowned her family due to some misunderstanding she had with her widowed mother many years ago. The family sources claim her first step after the fallout with her mum was to change her original name: Chidinma Blessing Echefu, to Chidinma Adaora Ojukwu.
According to the family sources, the misunderstanding between Chidinma and her mum continued, forcing her to take the then-teenage Chidinma to her Uncle’s house in Mushin where she was reportedly thrown out again because of her smoking attitude. She was said to have become rebellious and stayed away from her family. It was at this point that she met Ojukwu, who took her into his Yaba abode, from where she was picked last week Wednesday.
Her mother who presently resides in Mowe area of Ogun State, was said to have told some of her relatives that she has not set her eyes on Chidinma for 10 years. Childinma’s sister, Chioma, corroborated this claim when she visited the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, SCIID, Yaba.
She stated categorically that the Ojukwu who she was arrested alongside last week Wednesday was not related to her family, disclosing that they were from Imo State and not Abia State as earlier disclosed by Chidinma.
Chidinma is currently cooling her heels at the State Criminal Investigation Department SCID Lagos.
