PATHETIC NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE OF PATIENCE BULA IN THE HANDS OF ONE
ADAMS MARVIN UNDER THE GUISE OF AN EXPENSIVE MOVIE ROLE. A CALL FOR
JUSTICE AND ACTIVISM.
By: Ukan Kurugh
The painful experience of this beautiful new wife must be told. She was
caught in between the claws of death, perhaps for ritual purposes or
for something else, one should wonder. I have urged the world over and
those who believe in the cause of justice to show up at the Police A
Division Wadata-Makurdi this morning by 9am for the perseverance on the
cause of right. I would tell those who would care to read.
Patience Bula who is a graduate of Mass Communication and a corp member
currently serving at Radio Benue Makurdi was invited by a friend
Precious also fellow corper after their CDS to show up at a movie
rehearsal she was taking part in and to perhaps also pick a simple role.
A thing she succumbed to after some persuasion. There she was
introduced to one Adams Marvin who was the one managing the shooting of
the movie and was subsequently attached a simple role and handed the
Subsequently, she was asked to bring the script as it
contained some roles of other artists, a thing she did voluntarily at
the Eunice Resort Centre, venue of the rehearsal where she had been
offered the role.
On Sunday, 10th September, 2017 the said
Marvins called Patience that, there was need to cut down participating
actors in the movie to save cost, hence the production team was short of
finance. He therefore urged Patience to meet him at Hope Clinic,
Wadata, where other actors and actresses were waiting to be shortlisted.
On getting at the clinic, Patience saw no one and Marvins appeared
minutes later to tell her that, all the people were gathered in a house
down the street opposite the hospital. Not convinced enough thou, she
decided to make the walk down into a compound and then into a supposed
room where there was no one.
He urged her to sit and then told
her that, there was a scramble for roles and so she should pray that she
would not be thrown out. In the process, he also sat on same bed and
bent backwards as if in a bid to pick something and next she experienced
was a stick held at either ends across her neck in front in a bid to
strangle her. She started struggling and screaming for help which didn’t
come. It became a scramble that lasted minutes. She was determined not
to die like a chicken and struggled until the stick was loosed. Rather,
he used the stick to hit her chest and wipe her back until she became
unconscious hence she had become weak. Only to wake minutes later with
fumes on her mouth in a pool of blood alone in the room. She crawled to
the door step where a boy came over to help her to lie on the corridor.
The scene attracted sympathizers and some of the compound neighbour’s
who had earlier failed to turn up, perhaps fearing the nature of the
maverick Marvin in question. It was in the midst of all this that Marvin
showed up, perhaps believing she must have been dead. Surprised to see
her awake, he started claiming it she was her girlfriend who came and in
the process of love-making started convulsing. It was so unbelievable
and a youth leader who showed up helped recover her phone from the said
room that had by now been switched off though initially fully charged.
All this had taken place about 2:30pm and Patience husband was later
reached who showed up and almost shed tears for what his wife had went
The youth within the area dragged the culprit to the
police station where he is under lock and key. Patience was first taken
to a clinic that asked for consultation of N17,000 and so they left for
FMC Makurdi where doctors where on strike and so she was taken to the
FMC Apir, where she underwent series of tests and some are yet to be
done. On a visit to the police station yesterday, husband to Patience,
Mike Bula lamented that, the police at the station were treating the
recidivist, who already has a plethora of cases against him was all
smiles and claiming that he knows his way. There was no sign of remorse
as he is reputed to have a smooth rapport with the policemen in the said
A division station, Wadata, Makurdi.

organizations please let’s ensure justice for this sister of ours
against this monster-killer.
