Ned Nwoko, a former lawmaker and husband of Nollywood star, Regina Daniels, would always be in the news.
Just as he is settling down with his duties at the National Assembly as a lawmaker and his wife Regina Daniel is busy flaunting her new label as Senator’s Wife, a video of his reconciliation with his fifth wife, Laila Charani surfaces online.
Lailai and the billionaire lawmaker cum businessman separated in 2022.
In the video, the couple was seen locking their fingers.
This is cheering news to friends of Lailai who was accused of adultery by her husband.
To Nwoko, an international lawyer, his marriage to his Moroccan wife, which produced three children, ended due to “irreconcilable differences rooted in indecent conduct on the latter’s part which started whilst she was on holiday in London.”
In the statement, which was issued by Mr Nwoko’s media team, he denied rumours that their separation was as a result of the use of a local aphrodisiac called ‘Kayamata’ sold by Jaruma.
Mr Nwoko accused his ex-wife of meeting with a man at a hotel while she was vacating in London with their kids. He also accused her of abandoning their kids during her stay in London.
The statement also said that his estranged wife contracted COVID-19 at a nightclub in London and had undergone plastic surgery without her husband’s knowledge.
“She did plastic surgery without informing her husband. She went to a nightclub and got coronavirus there. The neglect of the kids, violence on them, plastic surgery without knowledge of her husband, wayward lifestyle abroad, contact with a man, police case, and involvement of a lawyer in London were the major concerns that Ned Nwoko found disturbing and unacceptable.
”In all the weighty allegations, her only defense was that someone ‘set her up’ She never explained who did and for what purpose. When she returned to Nigeria from the UK, Ned Nwoko refused to see her and instead asked her to leave, as he could not condone her indiscretions anymore.”
In conclusion, Mr Nwoko said his initial reaction was to have completely ignored the silly insinuation.
He, however, said, he decided to speak out because of ‘‘his global reputation as a foremost philanthropist, distinguished patriot, and conscientious billionaire business mogul who can never allow shallow tale mongers to impugn his impeccable character and pedigree.”
