Though the customary marriage between politician Ned Nwoko and teenage actress, Regina Daniels has come and gone, the dust over her actual age is yet to settle.
A politician, who recently lost his senatorial ambition, Ned Nwoko seems to have landed in trouble over his determination to marry an under-aged girl.
Recall that last Thursday, the Court Of Appeal sitting in Abuja had declared distinguished Senator Peter Nwaoboshi as the authentic winner of the Delta North Senatorial Primary Election.
The Appellate Court also set aside the judgment of the lower court which had earlier declared Mr. Ned Nwoko as the winner of that Primary Election and ordered the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately withdraw any Certificate of Return issued to Mr. Ned Nwoko.
In an audio message, Barrister Barrister Jude Ojeogwu has claimed paternity of the actress and went ahead to share his thoughts and misgivings about the union. Citing Ned, a lawyer, as his senior colleague, Regina’s Dad revealed:
“My daughter Regina was born in Lagos in Alapere in Inland Specialists Hospital on the 10th of Oct 2001. It’s extremely painful to see Ned Nwoko my senior get married to my underaged17-year-old daughter, Ned Nwoko is 62 and not 59. I Call Him Bros, he is way older than me, We both grew up in the same compound as young boys.”
Also on Instagram he posted:
“Regina daniel Ojeogwu is my biological daughter.What ever is ongoing is not to my knowledge and without my consent.The fact speaks for itself looking at the picture. Her mother Rita daniel is threading on a dangerous path and I hope she will retrace her steps. Even the initiation ceremony into otu odu appears completely strange to Regina daniel Ojeogwu. Regina is from ogwashi uku and not from olor as being rumored. All the opportunities for Mr Ned nwoko to discuss with me proved abortive not realising that we once lived in the same house in awoyokun street, onikpan, Lagos. The implication of all this is that she inpregnated herself. The name Regina was my late mother’s name. I have tried to exercise restraint but Regina mother kept pushing me to wall. Am alive and not dead. If in doubt of this post call Barrister Jude Ojeogwu on 08033039058″”
