The reprots had gone on to reveal that Adams had been responsible for the death of his first wife, Mrs Clara Oshiomole, at the Abuja clinic, Maitama, after a long battle with cancer.

The Executive Director, Media and Public Affairs, Governor’s Office, John Mayaki, in a press statement which was issued by the state, revealed that she had been busy holding meetings & brainstorming on how to better the lots of the less-privileged Women and Children in the state through her pet project.

The statement went on to read:

"The rumour mongers are well advised to find more productive engagements to deploy their energies rather than market inanities about public personalities all in their bid to sell their medium. Which Court of Law was the alleged divorce initiated and to whom was it served? Which country, state, municipal or county, if any, is the Court situated? And when was the action/suit filed? Of course the writers didn’t bother to inform their readers. The truth however is that the answers only exist in the warped imagination of the purveyors of the lies."
