Nollywood actress, Ngozi Ezeonu has been accused by her ex husband, Edwin Ezeonu of marrying off their daughter without his consent.
In an interview with The Sun, the ex husband accused the actress of trampling on his right and honour as a man.
He described his daughter’s traditional wedding as an abomination because he was kept in the dark throughout the whole process.
Speaking about how hurt he is, he said: “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 a State on February 15, 2020 was a movie shoot!”
Speaking about their separation, he claimed he came home one day to see she has packed her load and moved out of the house.
“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 wellbeing 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,” he said.
