Exclusive! Ngozi Ezeonu’s ex-husband breaks silence on how his daughter got married without his consent

Ngozi Ezeonu's ex-husband

Few days ago, precisely on Saturday, February 15, Nollywood veteran actress, Ngozi Ezeonu gave out her daughter’s hand in marriage at a glamorous ceremony held in Asaba, Delta State.

The wedding had notable faces like Ebere Okaro, Chinyere Wilfred, Patience Ozorkwo, Chigozie Atuanya, Christabel, Eve Esin, Ebiwari Etuk and many more.

During the star-studded event, Kemi Filani News had noticed that her estranged husband, Mr. Edwin Ezeonu wasn’t present to officially hand over his daughter’s hand to the groom.

When contacted by Kemi Filani News, the aggrieved father maintained that as long as he is concerned, his daughter Ogechukwu Edwina Ezeonu is not married yet but only partook in a ‘Nollywood movie shoot’.

Mr. Ezeonu also emphasized that he has only three children with his estranged wife and not 4 as speculated in the media.

 “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.
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 speculations; the marriage relationship packed up long time ago. Sometime in the year 2013.

It is no rumours about our divorce. 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,” he said.

All efforts to reach Ngozi Denis Ikpelue to get her side of the story proved abortive as she didn’t answer her GLO line, after multiple calls from this reporter.

    His sustained emphasis on the maiden name of the renowned actress is totally unnecessary and uncalled for. After divorce, a lady is at liberty to retain any name she wishes. Bianca Jagger still answers that despite being long divorced from Mick Jagger. Prof Catherine Acholonu still answers that long after being divorced from the former Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince, Dr Patrick Acholonu. Just two examples. There are numerous others. Giving out his daughter depends on his current relationship with her. If he trained her and retains good communications with her, he can still have that privilege. But if he is an absentee father, he automatically loses that privilege to someone else be it an uncle, Pastor or even family friend of the mom. Culture is dynamic and is also inferior to the nation’s constitution. Thanks. Agbasi Emeka Herbert {Dr)
