“This is nothing but oppression. Why should children be brought to SCID?” – Relative says Police seize two children from OAP Nedu’s ex-wife; hand them over to him, Nedu reacts, shares the agreement between him and Ex-Wife and copy of Flight Ticket (Photos)


The two children Nigerian OAP, Nedu had with his ex-wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri, have according to a new report, been seized from her and handed over to the media personality by policemen attached to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, Lagos.


According to a report by Punch, a letter of invitation with reference number CR:3000/LSX/D10/Vol.3/71 which was signed by Fayoade Adegoke, the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the SCID, asks Ohiri asked to see CSP Margaret Ighodalo.

Ohiri was allegedly asked to stop making disparaging comments against the comedian on social media and also report at the SCID regularly and bring two of her three children. The two children were reportedly handed over to their father.

A relative who spoke to the publication, questioned why the police will be interfering in a civil matter. He said,

“Can you imagine the Police are interfering in a civil matter because Nedu is influential?

“This is nothing but oppression. Why should children be brought to SCID? Now, they have been handed over to Nedu. This is sad.”

OAP Nedu Wazobia has now refuted reports of the police seizing his kids from his ex-wife for him saying the children were brought back after an agreement between the two.

According to him, the children were brought back to Lagos after they both agreed it’s best they come back there since they are schooling there and he even paid for the flight to bring them back hence no one seized them for him.

Nedu Wazobia also made it clear that he is not going to talk about his family issue on social media again and has subsequently advised his ex-wife and her sister to do the same since the issue is still in court saying he’s not the first and won’t be the last to have a failed marriage.

He then added that it hurts him that he has to be talking about this issue just to clear the air on some things since it’s humans they are dealing with and they are the ones who will grow up one day and face the consequence of what they do today as parents.

Sharing copy of the flight ticket and agreement, he wrote

I am sad that once again, I need to clear the air on what I consider a private matter. But for the sake of all the parties involved, it is pertinent that I do so.
Please let the following be clear to all journalists, blogs, news platforms, etc;

1. Contrary to the rumours being peddled around, I do take care of my children and will continue to as it is my duty.
2. Neither I nor the police forcefully took my kids away from my ex-wife. It was a unanimous agreement. Please feel free to read her handwritten statement and also see the bag with which she brought their clothes.

3. The children in question were taken to Owerri to live for over a month without my consent or permission. My ex-wife took that decision without consulting me… I paid for the flight for her to go and bring them back to Lagos after it was agreed by all parties that it was better they were returned to Lagos especially as they school in Lagos.

4. I am a person who believes in doing things the right way and so far on this matter, I have stayed within the provisions of the law. A case was filed against my ex-wife for cyber-bullying and other grievances. She was invited to respond and the matter is ongoing alongside custody resolution.

I am tired of the sensational manner in which this news is being dispersed.
I do not grant interviews or speak on the matter to the press.
I would advise my ex-wife and her cousins/sister to follow suit.
We are not dealing with inanimate objects here but living and breathing beings who will one day deal with the consequences of this fall-out.
I truly want to continue to focus on my career, my family and my life as I am not the first or the last man to have a failed marriage
