“My husband is going to blow up a plane” Angry Nigerian Woman makes Hoax Bomb Call to Prevent Husband from Travelling



Eunice & Her Husband

She didn’t want her husband to leave the country without her, so she called the Police and told them he planned to blow up a plane. This was how Eunice Ukaegbu, a 50 year-old Nigerian woman residing in New Jersey, USA sent a swarm of Policemen rushing to the Newark Airport in an attempt to prevent a bomb from going off on a Paris-bound Delta Airlines flight.

The New York Post reports that she and her husband Okieze Ukaegbu, 58, had just had a big fight and she didn’t want him to leave the country without her. But authorities now believe that the information, was a false accusation following nothing more than a domestic dispute.

According to Eunice, she thought she was just doing her civic duty by calling the Police. She said he was a little secretive and when she couldn’t open his suitcase, she felt she had to warn authorities.

He told me he was going to blow up the airplane,” she told New York Post. “I went through his suitcase — and I panicked. I did what an honest citizen would do.”

The police first arrived at the couple’s home to question Eunice, who is a nurse. Federal agents, who feared her husband may be a terrorist, also came along. When their daughter overheard the ordeal, she called her father’s cellphone to alert him that Police men were heading to the airport to arrest him.

Okieze who was traveling to Nigeria via Paris had already passed through security and was waiting for a Delta flight to Paris, the first leg of his trip. After his daughter’s call, he remained at Gate B45 until authorities arrived, then calmly told them that his wife was lying and had an “alcohol problem.”

They took him into custody, pulled his luggage off the aircraft, searched it with bomb-sniffing dogs, then took him away for questioning, causing him to miss his flight. After interrogation and searches, he was released and later boarded a different flight to Paris.

The authorities have however described Eunice as the fiery one and now plan to press charges against her.

It looks like that marriage went up in flames,” a police source told New York Post.

    The woman should be charged. How can you call your husband a terrorist just because you don’t want him to travel without you?

    She forgot she’s in US, not Nigeria. Stupid act, she will not only be charged, loose her license, labeled unfit as a mother, but will also carry a record in US that will probably follow her till the end of her life. Bush woman!!!!

    see this is one of the problems about our people forgetting their responsibilities and acting foolishly. we always hear how nigerian women abroad suffer in the hands of their husbands, but we never hear how some of these said women are sometimes the abusers. I feel some nigerian women come to the states and forgot their traditional culture, if it was naija she wouldnt dare do this rubbish, especially for the fact that the man can return her to her people without losing out, but here in the states laws favor women when it comes to relationships and domestic issues. never let anger blind your judgement for not only do you destroy your life , you destroy your family. definitely if he doesn’t file charges against her, the state will. which means she can never work again, have a criminal record etc. of course she is old enough to have grown kids to take care of her, but it is sad how vindictive some women can be.May God help us all.

      Please, i get your concern and sentiment but slow down a bit….even if she is charged- it doesnt mean she will be convicted of a crime or even have a criminal record…doesnt mean she will have her nursing license taken from her…sure, these are things she should think about before her foolish behaviour…

      my dear I am a lawyer, and i currently practice in new jersey, not that far from new york, and if charges are filed, her license will be taken away, and best case scenario she might have it suspended and have to go through some psychological counseling. Am going to take she has no criminal record, so the judge might show leniency and give her probation. But again all these are ifs and depends on the judge she gets if the case is filed. By the way Prank calling is a misdemeanor punishable by law in nyc if the person you called is annoyed and wants to report you, so think of what hoax that affected a police department and almost an airport will be, so my dear dont say what you dont know. Lets just pray she gets a good lawyer and a good judge that wont try to make an example of her.

    The fear of some Nigerian women is the beginning of wisdom whaooooo a man she has kids for what a shame. She is going to register with Nigerian women nurses divorcee association in the United State. I tell most of my guys to be very careful with SOME of these Nigerian women most especially the once who call themselves nurses, bc they are dangerous.

    Its just pure wickedness. Some women are thoroughly evil and I say that as a woman myself. She deserves to be severely punished and effectively dismissed from that marriage. If she can do this she can kill. Foolish men open your eyes because some of them will see a badly mannered bad character of a woman and they just become mumu and follow. Give them a good woman and they will treat her like shit. Sometimes i just wanna say ntoin!

    This just indicates how some women need to learn how to not allow their emotions get the best of them. Being a wife and a mother requires a lot of grace, tolerance, and most importantly how to manage your emotions. Trust me, I’m sure there are times I feel like going off on my ex or even egging his car. But as women, we need to take a step back and not allow our emotions get the best of us and remember that there are consequences for our actions.

    So people being blown up in an airplane is now so trivial that one idiot thinks it is a good excuse to mess up her husband’s travelling plans? I hope she gets at least some community service time for disturbance of the peace!
