Mr. Edwin Ezeonu is raising up dust against his ex wife, Nollywood actress, Ngozi Ezeonu for rubbishing his right and honour as a man.
Weeks ago, the Nollywood actress and ex husband’s daughter, Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu got married in Asaba, Delta State without the consent of her father who was denied the right of giving the hand of his daughter out in marriage by Ngozi herself.
Mr. Edwin who is furious and angered said that as long as he is concerned, his daughter, Ogechukwu, is not married.
Mr. Ezeonu said that is a native of Nnobi and his wife hails from Ogbunike, both which are in Anambra State. However, he said allowing his daughter’s traditional marriage in Delta State was an abomination and a nullity.
“I’m a real son of the soil in Igboland and I am knowledgeable enough about Igbo traditional marriage. In Anambra State where I come from, a woman does not and has no right whatsoever to give out a fellow woman’s hand in marriage. It is abomination and taboo. As such, Ngozi Denis Ikpelue has no legitimate right and authority to give out my daughter, Ogechukwu’s hand in marriage. As long as I am concerned and also the entire family of Ezeonu and his kindred are concerned, Ogechukwu is not married. What happened in Asaba, Delta State on February 15, 2020 was a movie shoot!” he said with anger.
Mr. Ezeonu also recalled how his marriage to Ngozi crashed in 2013. According to him, he said
“I came back home one day from work and met an empty house, without any prior notice. As I got home that fateful day, my landlady told me that Ngozi had packed out of the house, taking the children along with her. Few weeks before that, I had insinuated that she was putting up a new apartment. I summoned her and warned her against dividing the family. But she never listened.
