Nollywood actress, Ngozi Ezeonu has been accused by her ex-husband, Denis Ikpelue of marrying off their daughter, Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu without his notice.
According to AnambraOnline, Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu wedded on Saturday, February 15, 2020 in what could be termed outlandish traditional ceremony in Asaba, Delta State with the absent of Mr Denis Ikpelue.
Telling the newsmen about the incident, the ex-husband noted that in Igbo land a woman cannot marry off another woman, and as it stands, his daughter is not married.
“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. 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.
Denis further states that 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.
Concerning my relationship with Ngozi Denis Ikpelue, it is no speculation that the marriage relationship 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. She has been deceiving the whole world by saying that she is still married to me”, Mr Ikpelue revealed.
