May Aligwe Edochie, the first wife of Yul Edochie, has responded to her husband’s apology, saying she would not be cajoled into accepting polygamy.


On Wednesday, the Nollywood actor apologised to May for taking a second wife.

The film star said he is aware that he has “deeply hurt” May following his decision to marry another wife.

“To my dear wife, Queen May Yul-Edochie, I acknowledge that I hurt you deeply and I’ve apologised to you countless times. I take the blame for my actions. I agree with you that polygamy shouldn’t be forced on anyone,” he said.


Yul’s apology came more than eight months after he announced the arrival of a child with Judy Austin.

The actor also unveiled Judy as his second wife — to the chagrin of May.

Reacting to her husband’s apology on Friday via her Instagram page, May insisted that she would not be forced into accepting polygamy because it goes against her faith, beliefs and values.


“To reaffirm my stands, I will not be cajoled into accepting polygamy, which goes against my beliefs, faith, and values. I will not be numbered in a home that we started building with love, faith, tears, hopes, and prayers in a catholic marriage of 18 years following a long term premarital relationship,” she wrote.

May also pleaded with Yul to stop bringing their marital issues — which she described as “show” — to social media.

“This is also a passionate appeal to put an END to the constant “show” on the social media space were our kids are growing into unless it is absolutely necessary,” she added.

“Let’s prevent our lovely children from all the incessant drama series that might take a toll on them directly (or) indirectly amongst their peers. May GOD in His infinite mercy and compassion guide us all in the right direction.”


A month after Yul unveiled his second wife, May had declared that she is totally against polygamy.

In July, the entrepreneur also recounted how she battled with depression after Yul married Judy.
