Mr. Edwin Ezeonu, the ex-husband of veteran Nollywood actress, Ngozi Ezeonu has reportedly come out to accuse her ex-wife of giving out their daughter’s hand in marriage without his consent as the father.
It would be recalled that Ngozi Ezeonu’s daughter, Ogeh got married on Saturday, February 15th in Asaba, Delta State and the glamorous ceremony was attended by notable faces in the Nigerian movie industry like Ebere Okaro, Chinyere Wilfred, Patience Ozokwor, Chigozie Atuanya, Christabel, Eve Esin, Ebiwari Etuk and many more.
According to report by blogger Kemi Filani, Mr. Edwin Ezeonu wasn’t present to officially hand over his daughter’s hand to the groom, Mr. Ibiza.
When contacted by Kemi Filani, 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.
Kemi Filani quoted Mr Ezeonu as saying;
“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.”
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.

“I told him (Nwoko) and the mother to call him Ifechukwude which means what God has written.”
