Nedu Wazobia has opened up on his protracted tussle with Uzoamaka Ohiri, his ex-wife.
The actor has also cleared the air on domestic violence allegations Uzoamaka levelled against him.
Uzoamaka had, via her Instastory on Friday, said Nedu battered her weeks after she gave birth to their child.
In a statement on Saturday, Nedu, whose real name is Chinedu Ani, said the union had been plagued by struggles.
He alleged that Uzoamaka had cheated, which led him to seek a DNA test to ascertain their first child’s paternity.
“[This] 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,” Nedu said in the statement shared via his official Instagram page.
DNA tests can be carried out for different reasons, including to identify someone or show that people are relatives.
To back up his claim, Nedu proceeded to share a medical document showing the result of the DNA test.
Nedu Wazobia denies ex’s assault claims, dares her to file lawsuit
On Uzoamaka’s assault allegation, Nedu said her claims had been investigated by the police.
He asked his ex-wife to approach a law court if she felt justice hadn’t been served on previous occasions.
“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,” the Wazobia FM OAP said.
“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 anybody including my ex-wife.
“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 anyone should be laying claims to domestic violence it should be me.
“It is heartbreaking that I even have to issue this statement under these circumstances as I have put the unfortunate incidents surrounding my ex-wife and I and the final collapse of our union behind me.
“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 with 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.”
