The former governor wondered why Amuchinwa could not explain the luxury goods worth N110million which she claimed she sent to him.

“The allegations are, to say the least, most ludicrous and laughable. They all together constitute an elaborate and audacious scheme by Ms Amuchinwa to blackmail, extort and otherwise defame the person of Ohakim.

"Ms Amuchinwa presented herself as ‘businesswoman’ but did not state the nature of her enterprise and her business address, if any.

And to be sure, Ms Amuchinwa had filed this counter-petition as an afterthought to an ongoing investigation of her criminal conducts towards Dr Ohakim, based on a petition Dr. Ohakim had filed against her and upon which she was arrested as far back as 20th January 2020, " part of the statement read.
