She died on the day she was due to give birth after series of miscarriages in her husband’s house.
A brief biography of the victim
Chinyere Sylvia Akaleme (nee Igbo) was born on 27 april 1981 into the family of Mr and Mrs Reginald Chiaka Igbo. The second child and 1st daughter of the family with six other siblings, Sylvia was raised in a middle-class Catholic family residing in Ajao estate, lagos where she had her nursery, primary and secondary education. She was a very bright pupil and her position in class never went below the top three.

Her last job was with the Wini group, an Ikeja based corporation.
In 2012 she met and married Obinna Akaleme a farmer/ chef/ kitchen assistant and thus began her journey to an untimely death in the hands of the man she loved so much and catered for. She died on the on the 29th of march 2022 and she was committed to mother earth at the Ikoyi cemetery on the 19th of july 2022.
Engr sylvia is survived by her aged grandmother, her parents, siblings, uncles, aunties, nephews and nieces. May her gentle soul rest in peace, Amen.
Her parents and siblings never knew Chinyere endured several years of abuse in the hands of the man she called a husband. She assumed the role of a typical Nigerian wife who must always display a non-existent happiness in a marriage filled with sadness and regrets. The only clue about what happened to her during her over five years of marriage was the account of the neighbors who narrated how on a particular night Obinna her husband beat her up and she ran to their landlords house for safety. Also the little girl who lived with her revealed that Chinyere warned her not to tell her parents that her husband used to beat her up even while she was over eight months pregnant.sylvia and a friend at an event
That explained the reason behind the series of miscarriages she had before her last pregnancy which was full term. Her parents got worried that their daughter had about four miscarriages in less than four years decided to take her to come stay with them when she took-in after her eight month old miscarriage.
She lived peacefully with her parents and her pregnancy advanced with Chinyere in good health and high spirits anticipating the birth of her child. Unfortunately for her, on her due date, Obinna, her husband came to pick her up from her father’s house at 10 am to the hospital and as a dutiful wife she was, she obeyed him and went with him.
According to the doctor, the mother and the baby were confirmed healthy on arrival and Doctor asked her to go get her bag in preparation for delivery that evening. Obinna took Chinyere to their matrimonial home. Sadly for Chinyere, he got into an argument with her over money, beat her up so badly and left her unconscious in the house. He left the house and switched off his phone and her phone so no one could reach them. He left her in the house and every attempt made to reach them was futile.
He later returned and took her to the hospital when he discovered she was dying at about 4.30pm and did not deem it fit to contact her parents or siblings, he did this so as not to run the risk of her coming out of coma and telling her family her ordeal at the hands of her husband, it is also worthy to note that the hospital were she died is less than a hundred metres from her parent’s house. Obinna eventually came to her parents house around 8.30pm to tell them she had passed on.
Further findings from her siblings and the doctor’s confirmation revealed that Chinyere was brought to the hospital lifeless (practically dead). The doctor decided to do a cesarean session to try and save the baby but it was all in vain.
Chinyere’s sad story is one among millions of Nigerian women who fall victim to sexual and emotional predators because they want to be accepted by the society at large . They hide their ordeal from the very people that can rescue them. Their families. Women nowadays pretend that they are in happy marriages even when the obvious signs says otherwise.
For how long will we keep up with this trend of pretending all is well when it obviously isn’t? Must we live a lie for societal acceptance? Let’s come together and say no to domestic violence and spousal abuse. There are many families like Chinyere’s who wish their children had remained single and lived with them instead of getting married and killed by their partners. Enough is enough!”

Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, is one thespian that has stood the test of time. And what is going for her is her talent and versatility.
From her role in The Maid, a movie that launched her into stardom, Okojie has featured in several movies, garnering awards both locally and internationally.
In this chat, the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Entertainment, Arts and Culture to Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, opens up on her career, marriage, new epic film, ‘Inipki’ and other sundry issues. Enjoy it.
Could you tell us about your new movie, Inipki, what is the concept behind it?
The movie is in connection with my job as Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture to Kogi State governor, His Excellency, Yahaya Bello. He said every sector must be operative to make the state a haven for tourism and entertainment.
I believe culture exists before religion, so we have to go back to our root as a reason to draw us closer. That’s where the idea for the talent hunt came. After the talent hunt we realised we had more people in the movie sector, so we decided to bring heavyweights in filmmaking such as Sam Dede, Saidi Balogun, Paul Obazele and award-winning film director, Frank Rajah Arase. We then decided to shoot an epic movie to portray our root and showcase the rich culture and tradition of Kogi State, instead of shooting the regular conventional story. That’s how we chose the movie titled, ‘Inikpi’.
Could you elaborate more on the movie?
It’s about a respected princess in Igala, Kogi State, who laid her life down for the peace and tranquility of the people. The story captivated me, so I decided to take it as a personal project, as a contribution to my state as an actress and also to encourage the young ones to know more about the legends literally and histrionically.
What should viewers expect from the flick?
It’s a topnotch movie and they should always expect the best from their own. However, the movie has started to gain acceptance from the social media. We are delighted that the flick is making waves.
You have distinguished yourself as an actress, what would you say is responsible for your achievements?
Honestly, the grace of God has been my pillar of strength. I don’t have anyone to thank for my achievements, but my creator for paving ways for my success. He is helping me to live a sustainable life and giving me reasons to appreciate His mercies upon my life always.
Also, I must appreciate God for connecting me to a man that complimented and transformed me into a better person. He has a different perspective to life, which has affected my life positively, and I owe a gratitude to my husband for his love and affections.
What do you think makes you stand out?
It is persistency, hard work and passion for my job.
Are there any experiences you had as a child that made you cry as an adult?
I’m just a regular girl next door, nothing special. Though, growing up was tough, it made me a better person. It made me strive to succeed, it taught me hard work, perseverance and also educated me to understand that my purpose on earth is to serve humanity, which was one of the strongest lessons I learned in life.
You have played countless roles such as maid, gangster and lover to mention a few, how does your husband react to your movies?
My husband doesn’t watch my movies. But I think he has heard about the clown I am in movies (laughter). Nevertheless, I adore him for being my backbone and supporter of my career. Though, for the past eight years of our relationship, I haven’t featured in romantic roles. This is because he doesn’t like it and I can’t do it for all the money in the world.
How would you describe your husband?
He is a very humble man, friendly and calm. When I’m doing the crazy things, he looks at me and shakes his head. In fact, he is a gentleman, he is not dramatic at all and he always tells me he doesn’t understand from where I get all my dramas. Sometimes, he asks me ‘you don’t get tired?’ You know, I play too much. Nevertheless, my husband is the definition of God’s plans for me on earth; he gives me peace, love and happiness. In fact, he is my destiny.
Every marriage has its challenges, how do you settle disputes?
When I offend my husband, I jump on his body and he laughs. I may also write a message and paste it on my daughter, Purity’s back (laughter). Honestly, the man is tired of my pranks (laughter).
How do you create a work-life balance?
I operate on a scale of preference regarding my service to God, family and job. My family has to be comfortable before discussing my job. I must appreciate my husband, Prince Odianosen Okojie, for giving me his consent when my appointment as SSA to governor came, knowing fully well the sacrifices and adaptations he will have to put up with.
How do you relax?
I play Ludo game or swim with my husband. Also, I relax with my kids, playing and discussing school activities with them.
How has it been working as Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment, Arts and Culture to Kogi State governor?
Like I always say, the honorable doesn’t count but the impact you can make in the lives of people. When I received the appointment, I was enchanted for the honour. So far, it has been fun working with Governor Yahaya Bello. Nevertheless, I have been executing my duties in the entertainment, arts and culture sector, to give Kogi State a new face, just as our leader has instructed.
What is your advice to Nigeria women?
They should embrace God to make everything beautiful in their lives. Also, live a positive life; no matter what life throws at them, they must put God first for solution.

I don’t know their plans yet- Chats surface as May-Edochie reacts to Yul’s decision to bring Judy into same matrimonial home
The court has finally issued its judgement, according to close sources and inner circles, handing May the ultimate win she sought—a divorce and exclusive ownership of their magnificent love nest, the exact mansion that formerly served as the epicenter of their shared ambitions.
May has triumphed, gripping the keys to their former home as a symbol of her newly found independence. According to reports, the court found in her favor, recognizing her intrinsic attachment to the property they had shared. This ruling not only protects her claim to the property, but it also sends a strong statement that May has won this difficult battle.
This ruling not only secures her claim to the land, but it also sends a clear statement that May has triumphed in this difficult battle.
May was also handed the custody of their beloved children.
As for Yul, well, he appears to be lingering in the shadows of their former home. Though he may still be physically present, it is abundantly clear that the court’s decision has severed any claims he once held over the property. Despite the fact that his personal belongings remain scattered throughout the house, Yul is well aware that the keys to this domestic kingdom no longer belong to him. His presence serves only as a somber reminder of a love that has faded; a flame that has been extinguished.
Oh, the scandal! The twists and turns of this high-stakes divorce drama will surely leave you breathless. May’s triumph in court has cemented her status as the victor, securing her future and that of their precious children. As for Yul, well, it seems he must confront the stark reality that he has been dethroned from their shared castle. The echoes of their past linger in the air, serving as a poignant reminder of a love story that has reached its final, bittersweet chapter.
Meanwhile, Judy Austin, the very person who played a role in the crumbling of Yul and May’s once idyllic home, has now shamelessly taken her place at Yul’s side. With an air of ruthless confidence, Yul parades Judy around town, flaunting their newfound love for all to see. Oh, the audacity!
Can you imagine the torment May must endure as she witnesses the man she once loved, the very man she shared her dreams and her home with, shamelessly showcasing his new flame? It’s a twisted form of vengeance, a heart-wrenching display that cuts May to the core.
That is the major reason why Yul and Judy is all over the internet of recent flexing and singing together.
