When a female guest suddenly dies inside the residence of a Nigerian politician it easily raises a red flag.

THEWILL can report that the mysterious and sudden death of a 47 year-old elegant woman, Ms. Chinwe Masi inside the high brow Potomac mansion of former Abia State Governor, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu has left family and friends of the deceased uneasy and wanting answers.

Though details of the incident are still unclear, records obtained exclusively today from the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland showed that Ms. Chinwe Masi was pronounced dead on Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 8.48pm after paramedics and fire service personnel arrived at the 14900 River Road, Potomac, MD residence of Chief Kalu in response to a 911 call made by someone in the residence believed to be Orji Kalu.

THEWILL gathered that the deceased and Orji Kalu, 50, were romantically involved but we could not ascertain the length of the relationship as at press time.

The deceased, a resident of the city of Hyattsville, Maryland who was once married to Mr. Okechukwu Ogbonna had just returned from Nigeria after a short visit. Her friends and relatives said she was full of life during her stay in Nigeria. THEWILL could not confirm how long she had been at the residence before her sudden demise, but the police said she was visiting when she died.

Montgomery police personnel have so far ruled that her death occurred from natural causes but added that an autopsy would reveal the exact cause of death. Ms. Chinwe’s friends and relatives who we spoke to however, do not believe that she died of natural causes. They allege that something diabolical which modern science cannot detect must have been responsible for her sudden passing.

“You never know with Nigerian politicians, you know our country, the Whiteman does not understand juju,” one of her relatives who opted to remain anonymous told THEWILL during a call.

But a female spokesperson for the Montgomery Police said; “On Thursday 08-19-2010, fire rescue personnel responded to a 911 call at 14900 River Road, Potomac, MD. The call was not by the female who needed help. Chinwe Masi, a 47 year-old female was pronounced deceased at the scene by responders. The cause of her sudden death is undetermined. Usually an autopsy would reveal the exact cause.”

Chief Orji Uzor Kalu is believed to be married to Ifeoma Ada Kalu though knowledgeable sources allege their marriage has been rocked by series of crises and scandals. Several calls to his mobile phone and an SMS were not responded to.
