OAP Nedu clears the air on allegations of domestic violence from his ex-wife

Popular radio presenter and comedian, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, popularly known as Nedu, of Wazobia FM, has cleared the air on the allegations of domestic violence leveled against him by his now-estranged wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri.

Uzoamaka had taken to her Instagram stories, to reveal how Nedu had battered her a few weeks after she was delivered of their baby, through a  Cesarean section. She also accused the comedian of not catering for their kids.

She questioned why Wazobia FM still allows her ex-husband to host marriage talks and shows when he is one of the many men who batter their wives.

Uzoamaka wrote, “@nedu_wazobiafm I am ready now, Seems like a very good time to call all useless men out. I’m tired. Let’s take care of the girls, leave my son out of this,” she wrote.

Do you remember when you beat me up while your mother held my newborn a few weeks after I had a cesarean operation?”

I still wonder how Wazobiafmlagos allows you to host a marriage show when you’re one out of the many men that beat their spouses to stupor.”

In response to her posts, the OAP in an Instagram post stated that he was not in the habit of trading issues on social media, but that he needed to clear the air on the accusations levelled against him.

Nedu said that he has never been a supporter of domestic violence on either a man or woman but on a closer look, he was the victim of domestic violence, not his wife as she claims. Nedu revealed that these allegations leveled against him has been investigated twice by a police station in Ajah and a Court of competent jurisdiction, of which he was cleared in both cases.

He also revealed that their marriage was plagued with infidelity from the woman’s side, whilst disclosing that he is not the biological father of their first child despite being married then. He backed up his claims with pictures of the DNA test result.

Nedu wrote;

“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.

First of all, I would like to state clearly that 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.

Our marriage was one plagued with a lot of issues. One of which was continuous infidelity from her side that led to me conducting a paternity test on our kids which 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.

On the allegation of domestic violence, 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.

I am appealing to my ex-wife to remember 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 to pursue justice”.
