Comedian Chinedu Ani, popularly known as Nedu, has returned to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, Lagos, to return his two daughters to his ex-wife, Uzoamaka Ohiri.
Nedu said this during a chat with our correspondent on Wednesday, hours after stating that it was his ex-wife that willingly handed over the children to him at the SCID on Tuesday.
He said, “Since she said she did not willingly give me the kids and that we seized the kids from her, I am at Panti now to return the kids; but she is nowhere.
“She has turned off her phone and she has done everything for us not to reach her. I hope you can write that.”
One of Uzomaka’s relatives, however, said that she had been hospitalised and had also been invited by the Lagos State Ministry of Justice.
“Uzo has not been feeling too well since this ordeal began and giving up her children on Tuesday took an emotional toll on her.
“She has also been invited by the Ministry of Justice in Lagos State. As it is, her phones are off, but I am sure that she will turn them on soon,” the cousin said.
Uzoamaka and Nedu have been engaged in a messy feud in the last one month.
The 37-year-old mother-of-three had called out her ex-husband on social media, accusing him of domestic violence and refusing to take care of the family.
Nedu responded by posting a DNA test result of their first child and only son which showed that he was not the boy’s biological father.
His ex-wife was invited by the Police and had been reporting to CSP Margaret Ighodalo for the last three weeks.
On Tuesday, Uzoamaka alleged that she was forced to hand over two of her kids to ex-husband Nedu and had written an undertaking under duress.
However, Nedu said that his ex-wife willingly handed the kids to him, while he also posted as evidence the photographs of the undertaking she had signed at the SCID, as well as the air tickets he purchased for the kids to be brought back to Lagos.
