If you call her an Avenging Angel on a deadly mission, you won’t be wrong. Highly rated Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo is so angry with a reporter who accused her of aborting a six-month unborn baby that she wants to harm him. Jombo who sees herself as ‘emotional’ says the libelous story had brought her so much anguish and tears that she cannot help but seek her own pound of flesh.
“You know how emotional I am. I have cried for smaller things but this one, I still curse the person, till tomorrow. It will only take God for me to see the person and not harm him”
In fact, the Glo ambassador who recently premiered her latest movie, Damage, is visibly galled, exasperated and ready to bare her fang.
For Jombo, the only panacea that would assuage her current disposition is justice from a court of competent jurisdiction.
The negative impact of the “front page news”, which embittered Jombo described as “false and malicious” still haunts her, hence her reason for threatening fire and brimstone.
“For me, that was my biggest scandal ever. It was really damaging and I won’t stop fighting till I get justice”, insists the star who breezed into Tinsel town in 1999, on the set of Visa to Hell.
She continues: “Well, I’m currently in court with the soft-sell magazine, for writing what I have come to consider the worst media story in my entire life and career, which was completely false and malicious. During the world premiere of my second movie last year, Holding Hope, I lost so much weight deliberately based on my character as a Cancer patient only for this paper to write on their front page that I aborted a pregnancy at six months, hence the lost of weight,” she recollects with tears in her sexy eyes.
“It’s still all over the net, just Google Uche Jombo/abortion, you’ll see over 500 pages…That story nearly shattered my life, my family legacy and all that I have laboured for in my entire career, in fact, it almost killed me. When you say someone aborted a six-month-old pregnancy, you are not just saying it’s an abortion, you are equally saying that person is a murderer because, six months, a baby is already formed and I don’t know where any one gets off thinking you can lose weight by having abortion,” she defends.
