Nedu Wazobia has clarified that neither he nor the Lagos police forcefully seized his kids from his ex-wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri.
Recall that the OAP and social media influencer had earlier shared the result of a DNA test which showed that he was not the biological father of their first son.
Ohiri had argued that the paternity of their son wasn’t a secret while asking Nedu to focus on his biological kids.
The Lagos police had later invited Ohiri while she granted multiple interviews to share her side of the story.
However, on Tuesday, reports went viral online that the ex-partners were with the Lagos police authorities at the State Criminal Investigation Department in Panti where two children were taken from Ohiri and handed over to Nedu.
But in a statement on the incident, Nedu stated that the handover was instead consented to by both parties.
He wrote, “Neither I nor the police forcefully took my kids away from my ex-wife. It was a unanimous agreement. Please feel free to read her handwritten statement and also see the bag with which she brought their clothes.
“The children in question were taken to Owerri to live for over a month without my consent or permission.
“My ex-wife took that decision without consulting me. I paid for the flight for her to go and bring them back to Lagos after it was agreed by all parties that it was better they were returned to Lagos as they school in Lagos.”
Nedu also said that the police’s invitation of his ex-wife was in the background of a cyber-bullying case filed against her.
“I am a person who believes in doing things the right way and so far on this matter, I have stayed within the provisions of the law. A case was filed against my ex-wife for cyber-bullying and other grievances,” the OAP wrote.
“She was invited to respond and the matter is ongoing alongside custody resolution. I am tired of the sensational manner in which this news is being dispersed. I do not grant interviews or speak on the matter to the press.
“I would advise my ex-wife and her cousins/sister to follow suit. We are not dealing with inanimate objects here but living and breathing beings who will one day deal with the consequences of this fall-out.
“I truly want to continue to focus on my career, my family, and my life as I am not the first or the last man to have a failed marriage.”
