Real Reasons Why Orode Uduaghan’s Marriage Crashed

Ryan Okpu
would still have been married to Orode, daughter of former Delta State
governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, but he is no longer her husband.

He was
said to have walked out of the 4-year-old marriage. 

to reliable sources, his action was due to the fact that he did not get
proceeds he expected from the marriage. Findings revealed that unknown to
Orode, Ryan wooed her and got married to her simply because he wanted to lay
his hands on her father’s wealth.

to a report by the, Ryan sought out Orode’s hand in marriage in
order to gain access to her father, former Governor Uduaghan’s expansive
wealth, business and political contacts. He allegedly manipulated her and made her
fall in love with him in a desperate bid to fulfill his lust for affluence.
Thus when they got married on November 12, 2011, Ryan was ecstatic. He felt he
had achieved his aims and would thereafter enjoy certain perks of being in-law to
a governor; such perks include access to highly lucrative contracts and so on.
He felt Orode was his meal ticket hence he would never lack in money and other
luxuries associated with power.

Unknown to Ryan, Orode was hardly the bimbo he thought she was. Contrary to his
dreams of using her as leverage to her father’s wealth, she rebuffed all his
attempts to turn her to his meal ticket. The beautiful mother of two was
allegedly too principled to be used like an ordinary bimbo. She reportedly
counselled Ryan to work for his money stressing that she would rather they
prospered by dint of hardwork than profit off her father’s affluence.

surely didn’t go down well with Ryan as he saw his dreams of luxury and power
disappeared into thin air. Eventually, he counted his losses and walked out of
his marriage with the ex-governor’s daughter. Sources close to the family
revealed that their marriage hit an iceberg soon after Orode bore Ryan their
second child in January 2015.

Orode walked down the
aisle with Ryan four years ago.

Before Ryan, she dated former West African
Idol’s contestant, Eric Arubayi, who was her longtime boyfriend. Even her
parents had thought Eric would be the lucky man. But the roller coaster
relationship ended sadly. No one could tell why they broke up since the younger
Uduaghan’s parents took an instant liking to the light skinned handsome dude so
much so that it was alleged in some quarters that the older Arubayi was made the
Vice Chancellor of Delta State University, Abraka because of the young lads’
relationship, which both families had thought would end on a good note. Ryan is
