Clarence Peters’ Girlfriend Of 14 Years Tackles Police Over Kodak’s Death
Jennifer Alegieuno, a makeup artist and girlfriend of Clarence Peters, a music video director, says her boyfriend was not at the scene when Picture Kodak died.
Police authorities in Lagos had detained Peters after Kodak, a dancer and video vixen, was electrocuted at his home while attempting to receive a call on her phone while it was charging.
Alegieuno, who described herself as Peters’ partner for 14 years, took to her Instagram page on Monday to issue a statement, accusing the police of laxity.
She wondered why the police would accuse him of murder without an autopsy report. She also claimed that her boyfriend was not arrested, adding that he only honoured the invitation of the police for questioning.
“It’s sickening, the corruption and laxity in the Nigerian police force. But First, lemme start with you the ones who follow blogs and comment without thinking,” she wrote.
“That someone earns a living from breaking homes and destroying people’s reputation is something that should naturally be worrisome to you but no, it refreshes you.
“As Clarence’s 14yrs long girlfriend, let me state authoritatively that Clarence Peters was invited to the police command, Yaba and he went there willingly.
“He was not arrested, neither was he charged with murder as stated by the press statement from the police command through their spokesperson Bala Elkana.
“We chose to keep quiet until the autopsy result comes out before addressing the press and of course the police report to exonerate him was signed and collected.”
Kodak, whose real name is Love Divine, had worked with top musicians including the likes of Olamide, Burna Boy, and Wizkid, some of whom paid tributes when news of her death broke.
“On Friday, 2nd of May, an investigative team led by IPO, MR. Popoola, after the on-scene investigation was done, visited the body at the morgue, and concluded they had no case with Clarence Peters, who was not on the scene of the incident,” Alegieuno’s statement continued.
“Segun the business manager, the 4dancers and two other members of staff of Capital Dreams Pictures, (all referred to as witnesses), said it was a natural incident. He wrote his report to that effect.
“Events took a different turn when the DCP Yetunde Longe, came in and asked that the report be torn, he wrote a second one that she tore again.
“By the third report, then came in Mr. Oye and his father Shina Peters and she couldn’t continue with her foul play.
“She agreed they had no case with him and the rest of the witnesses. ‘So why are u still holding him?’ everyone asked. She said she was waiting for the autopsy result so she can attach it.
“When she saw she had been caught, she sent them to put out a press statement that he was charged for murder. So thinking Nigerians, can someone be “charged” without an autopsy conducted?
“Backtrack a bit, after LD (Picture Kodak) passed on, it took more than 24 hours to seek the consent from her family to conduct that autopsy. By the time the consent was gotten, due to the COVID-19 that caused Nigerian court closure, the autopsy was to start on Monday being tomorrow.
“So again, how are we talking ‘he’s being charged for murder?’. Since they decided to throw the first blow of negativity, let’s go all out with the information.
“You have all been waiting for a response from him and because he chose to be law-abiding, someone who contributes positively to the Nigerian economy, they want yo tarnish his name? And artistes, everyone is quiet?
“Nobody is asking questions other than ‘how can she be electrocuted?’ Is it right? Who is going to charge PHCN to court for the surge?”
“Yetunde Alonge said, if he was an ordinary person, she would have let him go but because he and his parents are celebrities, that is why.
“Since you all seek to know if clarence ‘murdered’ her, if clarence ‘raped’ her, why can’t you all then march to Panti and ask your police force questions? Don’t sit on blogs spilling fallacies and stamp your imprint by commenting ignorantly.
“We were going to wait for the results and her family but clearly, everyone is keeping quiet and dragging him in the mud. I won’t! I have never kept quiet in the face of ills. I won’t start now. And to CP Biodun, stay strong because this too shall pass.”
