On Friday, September 3, 2021, Ohiri accused Nedu of domestic abuse. A few weeks after having their child via C-section delivery, she accused Nedu of hitting her. Nedu reacted to his wife’s accusations on September 4, 2021, and said he had never physically abused her. Later, Nedu would refute her statements, claiming that their union had many problems. “Our marriage was beset with a lot of troubles,” he stated. One of them was her ongoing infidelity, which prompted me to run a paternity test on our children and discover that, despite the fact that our first son was born during the time we were married, he is not my biological son.
He also provided a copy of the DNA test results from a forensic lab in Toronto, Canada called Viaguard Accu-metrics, to back up his claims. While Uzoamaka had claimed that she had not betrayed Nedu during their short union, she did add that she had not given birth to her ex-child husband on purpose. Even though she was unaware of it, Uzoamaka said that she was already carrying her ex’s child before she married Nedu.
After her previous relationship ended, Uzoamaka allegedly wanted to get to know Nedu. They later got married while she was pregnant, unaware that he wasn’t the cause of the pregnancy. Everybody could see that she was pregnant at the wedding. She claimed that their marriage’s breakdown was primarily due to a lack of effective communication. She claimed that domestic abuse had been a problem in their marriage and that their final divorce had nothing to do with the results of the DNA test.
Nedu is a brand ambassador to many popular multinational brands such as MTN, Fidelity Bank, Quickteller, Sun Lottery, and so on.
