Nigerian comedian, actor and TV presenter, Nedu Wazobia has reacted to the domestic violence allegation leveled against him by his estranged wife, Uzoamaka.
Newsmen reported earlier that Uzor alleged that he beat her up in the presence of his mother, just few weeks after she had a caesarian operation.
Uzor took to the Insta-story section of her Instagram page to make the allegations.
In her words; ”Seems like a good time to call useless men out… @nedu_wazobiafm I am tired.
@wazobiafmlagos how is @nedu_wazobiafm still hosting a marriage show on the radio, like wtf???
@nedu_wazobiafm I’m ready now, Let’s take care of the girls, leave my son out of this… remember this picture? You beat me up,while your mother held my new born a few weeks after a cesarean operation.”
In reaction, Nedu released a statement on Instagram and debunked the allegations. He also accused her of being unfaithful during their marriage.
He said that he conducted a DNA test on their first son and found out that he was not the biological father.
Read his statement:
”My attention has been drawn to stories making the rounds on social media by my ex wife (Uzoamaka Ohiri).
While I am not one to trade issues on social media, it has become pertinent that I clear the air once and for all.
First of all I would like to state clearly that I do not support or encourage any form of domestic violence whether targeted at a woman or man. I have also never been one to physically violate any body including my ex wife.
Our marriage was one plaqued with a lot of issues. One of which was continuous infidelity from her side that led to me conducting a paternity test on our kids which led to the revelation that our first son is not my biological son even though he was born within the period during which we were married.
On the allegation of domestic violence, we have had this matter investigated twice, one the police station in Ajah and another by a competent court of law during the dissolution of our marriage.
Both times I was cleared of all allegations and I have the necessary proof to back up my claim. If any one should be laying claims to domestic violence it should be me.
It is heartbreaking that I even have to issue this statement under this circumstances as I have put the unfortunate incidents surrounding my ex wife and I and the final collapse of our union behind me.
I am appealing to my ex wife to remember our kids and to not continue on this path she has chosen as the Internet never forgets and they will one day grow up to deal with this mess she is hell bent on creating.
I have no issues wit her and would like to continue to mind the business that pays me.
If she has any issues to join me with me, she is free to file her complaints and approach any court of competent jurisdiction to pursue justice.”
