OAP Nedu, has clear the air on the rumours making the rounds that he forcefully took custody of his two daughters from his estranged wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri.
It was earlier stated that LIB reported that Nedu in conjunction with the police, forcefully took custody of the children from their mother at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, on Tuesday.
Contrary to the report, Nedu, in a statement written by Uzoamaka and posted by him, said she released the children to him willingly because she had challenges paying up rent, among other things.
In addition to explaining how he took over the two female children, the comedian also posted receipts of the air ticket he booked for his ex-wife to fly the children down to Lagos from Owerri where they were staying with their maternal grandmother.
Explaining the issue via his verified Instagram page, Nedu states: “I am sad that once again, I need to clear the air on what I consider a private matter. But for the sake of all the parties involved, it is pertinent that I do so.
“Please let the following be clear to all journalists, blogs, news platforms, etc;
“1. Contrary to the rumours being peddled around, I do take care of my children and will continue to as it is my duty.
“2. 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.
“3. 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 especially as they school in Lagos.
