BREAKING: Ex-Delta Deputy Governor, Amos Utuama’s Wife Is Dead

Tuwere Nelly Utuama, wife of the immediate past Delta state deputy governor, Amos Utuama (SAN), is dead.

Mrs. Utuama, aged 65, SaharaReporters reliably gathered, died after a brief illness last week but the information was kept from the public and her husband, who is said to be having some health challenges at the moment.

Utuama, a two-term deputy governor, served under the administration of the immediate past governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan between 2007 and 2015.

A political associate to the former deputy governor who confided in our correspondent said, “The news of the wife of the former deputy governor had broken out since last week but was kept secret from her husband who was already at the airport in Lagos to be flown abroad for an illness suspected to be partial stroke; it was done so as not to worsen his health condition.”

“The news was also kept from the public and the media so that it would not get to her husband as well because of his current health condition,” the source added.

Meanwhile, the death of the wife of the former deputy governor has been confirmed in a statement signed by Ebikeme Clark, son of a former Minister of Information, Edwin Clark and Special Adviser to Delta state governor.

“The families of His Excellency, Prof. Amos Agbe Utuama, SAN, of Otu-Jeremi, Pa Ojigho of Otokutu, Chief Ikporoko Oro of Ejekota and Chief E. K. Clark of Kiagbodo, all in Delta State, regret to announce the passing on of their daughter, sister, cousin, mother and grandmother, Her Excellency, Dr. Mrs. Tuwere Nelly Utuama, after a brief illness, at the age of 65 years.

“The news of the passing on was made known by her children, Dr. Ovie Andrew Utuama and Barr. Mrs. Oghenefejiro Barbara Smooth. Burial arrangements will be announced later by the family,” the statement said.

Female prison warder caught having sex with male inmate suspended

The South African female prison warder who was caught having sex with a male inmate in an office within the prison premises in KwaZulu-Natal, has been suspended.

The video which has gone viral on social media showed the female warder passionately kissing the inmate before they got half naked and also got into the act.

This is coming after National correctional services spokesperson, Singabakho Nxumalo disclosed that a disciplinary process has been launched over the incident which occurred at Ncome Correctional Centre.

The national correctional services spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo told radio 702 on Wednesday March 17, that more prison officials might be punished if found culpable.

Nxumalo said;

“We have suspended the official involved and we’ve taken disciplinary measures against the inmate.

“The investigation is much broader than the two people seen on the video because … We need to understand if it is just an isolated incident or if there is more to it and if there are other players.”

The probe will look into how the pair managed to walk to and gain access to the office, and the origin of the cellphone which is regarded as contraband in prison.

He added;

“We do not want them [cellphones] in our centres. This is a classic case, a cellphone was used to record this.

“Cellphones are just one item in the long list of contraband items that are not allowed because they cause harm to the victims outside and used to plan other crimes. They could even order hits on others.

“It’s completely unpalatable. I don’t think that the nation would deserve to see something like that, captured in video, and you are correct, both of them [were] fully aware they are recording this thing.

“Sexual activities between inmates and correctional officials are shameful incidents that can never be ascribed to what is expected of our officials. The official involved has been identified and she will be subjected to a disciplinary process with immediate effect.

“Correctional officials are expected to abide by a code of conduct, and despicable acts of sexual activities with inmates shall never be tolerated. We appeal to those in possession of the video to refrain from disseminating it.”

Nxumalo also told TimesLIVE on same Wednesday that claims shared on social media about the warder taking her own life, were not true.
