All housemates in the Big Brother Naija reality show were given wager task which was to talk about their heroes. Kiddwaya on his own chose his billionaire father, Terry Waya as his own hero there he revealed how his billionaire father, Terry Waya, bailed late Diepreye Alamieyeseigha from the UK prison.
The statement is however contrary to the report that Alamieyeseigha allegedly jumped bail in Dectember 2005 from the United Kingdom by allegedly disguising himself as a woman.
Recall that the former Governor of Bayelsa State was detained in 2005 on the charges of money laundering after Metropolitan Police found about £1m in cash in his London home and a total of £1.8m ($3.2m) in cash and bank accounts.
Kiddwaya, speaking about his admiration for his father, said: “My father was the one who bailed the late Chief D.S.P Alamieyeseigha of Bayelsa State out of prison back then.”
“He has everybody’s back and he’s loyal to you no matter what. But he does not expect anything in return from anyone.”
Alamieyeseigha was impeached on allegations of corruption on 9 December 2005, while many of his assets were ordered to be forfeited to the Bayelsa state government.
On July 26, 2007, Alamieyeseigha pleaded guilty in court to six charges and was sentenced to two years in prison on each charge.
