Ngozi Ezeonu’s ex-husband reportedly accuses her of marrying off their daughter without his consent

Ngozi Ezeonu’s ex-husband has reportedly accused the veteran actress of marrying their daughter Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu, without his consent.

Ogechukwu wedded last Saturday, 15th February 2020 in a glamourous ceremony in Asaba, Delta State.

The wedding ceremony had in attendance notable Nollywood figures including Patience Ozokwor, Mary Igwe, Chinyere Wilfred and Eve Esin.

However, Ngozi’s ex-husband, Edwin Ezeonu, was notably missing at such an important event.

And according to Anambraonline, Mr Ezeonu, while reacting to the marriage says his daughter is not yet married as long as he is concerned as a "woman cannot marry off another woman in Igbo land."

"I’m the real son of the soil in Igbo land and I am knowledgeable enough to some extent concerning Igbo marriage tradition in Anambra State, Mr Ezeonu was quoted as saying.

"In the whole of Anambra State where I belong, a woman does not and has no legitimate right whatsoever to give out a fellow woman’s hand in marriage. It is a abomination and taboo.

"As such, Ngozi Denis Ikpelue has no legitimate right and authority to give out Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu’s hand in marriage. As long as I and the entire family of Ezeonu and his kindred are concerned, Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu is not married.

"Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu is yet to marry. What happened at Asaba Delta State on the 15th of February 2020 was the usual Nollywood home video film shooting. As at the time I lived with Ngozi Denis Ikpelue, I have three children; a daughter and two boys."

Mr Ezeonu said that his marriage with the actress packed up long time ago. Sometime in the year 2013.’

He said the divorce case took place in the high court of Lagos state; in the Ikeja Judicial division. Suit No ID/429/HD/2013.

"And by the second day of January 2015, a legal dissolution of the marriage was given by the court and Ngozi Denis Ikpelue ceased to be married to me Mr Edwin Ezeonu," he said.

"She has been deceiving the whole world by saying that she is still married to me." he added

Meanwhile, Ngozi Ezeonu is yet to respond to the reports.
