• Intrigues as Court of Appeal gives ex-governor’s widow the boot from disputed land

Margaret, widow of former Bayelsa governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, has suffered yet another heartbreak.

The former first lady of Bayelsa fights back the tears like a warrior queen of a clan under siege. Few months after her husband’s death, the Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has ordered the widow and her family to vacate a piece of land in the Ovom area of the State.

The judgment was delivered by Justice Theresa Ngolika Orji-Abadua in an appeal instituted by Stodie Ventures Limited against Mr. Alamieyeseigha and Margaret.The company first sued Mr. Alamieyeseigha and his wife at the State High Court in 2011, challenging their occupation of the said land and seeking to return it to its rightful owner.

It also asked the court to restrain the former governor and his wife, their servants, and agents from committing further acts of trespass on the parcel of land and demanded N100 million damages for trespass.
