Husband of lawyer who died chasing him, ‘side chick’ in Calabar breaks silence



Sunday Bassey, a Calabar-based man whose wife Claret Opara-Bassey reportedly died in a crash while chasing him and his alleged lover aka ‘side chick’ on September 18, has broken his silence.

Mr Bassey debunked speculations that he fell into coma and died.

He told The Nation that he had not spoken on the incident out of respect for his late wife who was a lawyer.

Bassey said he sought advice from his elders, relatives, pastor and lawyers and he was asked to remain quiet for now.

“I want to bury my wife and give her that respect,” he said, adding that “if there were not to be all those write ups and even extra length suggesting that I have been in coma and I’m dead, maybe I would have granted an interview.”

Bassey said his wife was dead at the time he took her to the hospital, so he did not understand where reports that she was chasing him and his alleged lover cane from.

“From the things they wrote, it was as if the person was actually with my wife or my wife had told the person this was what happened,” he said.

Chibuzor Opara, one of the elder brothers of the late lawyer, spoke with PUNCH last month, blaming his sister’s death on the person who called to inform her that her husband was with another woman.

“I don’t know whether it is a case but it was that person that caused all this. Somebody must have seen him and called her (Claret), having told the wife that he was travelling, and then due to the other factor that I don’t want to talk about,” he said.
