Nollywood actress #NgoziEzeonu has been accused of marrying off her daughter without the consent of her dad, Edwin Ezeonu
In an interview with The Sun, the man accused his ex-wife of trampling on his right and honour as a man. He described his daughter’s traditional wedding in Delta State as an abomination as he was kept in the dark throughout the whole process. .
According to the aggrieved ex-husband: “I’m a real son of the soil in Igboland and I am knowledgeable enough about Igbo traditional marriage. .
In #AnambraState 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, #DeltaState on February 15, 2020 was a movie shoot!” .
Recalling how his marriage to Ngozi Ezeonu crashed in 2013, Edwin 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.I gave Ngozi all the supports and encouragements she needed to boost her career as a seasoned actress, yet she never valued all my efforts. .
She also never contributed a dime to the upkeep of the house and well-being of the children. Even after they left, I still catered for my kids: school fees, foodstuff and all. .
I’m devastated that my only daughter would do this to me. Ngozi should also desist from using my surname. We are divorced.”
