Back in 2012, the Nollywood actor who starred in numerous movies was arrested for allegedly murdering his wife.

According to news reports at the time, Oganiru was arrested following a petition by the family and relatives of his late wife who claimed that she was poisoned by the actor so that he could acquire her wealth.

Oganiru maintained his innocence and said on numerous occasions that he did not kill his multimillionaire wife.
