Regina Daniels’ father reconciles with daughter, son-in-law, gives reasons
Jude Ojeogwu, Father of Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, has said that he decided to reconcile with her daughter’s billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko, following the birth of his grandson.
Regina Daniels recently gave birth to a baby boy, her first child for politician husband, Nwoko.
Barrister Ojegwu had staunchly opposed the marriage of the then 20-year old actress to the business mogul.
At the baby’s naming ceremony, held in Abuja yesterday evening, Ojeogwu told journalists that the birth of the baby made him reconcile with his billionaire son-in-law for the sake of peace, joy, and happiness.
Nwoko and Regina named their son Munir at the ceremony where Ojeogwu insisted that the birth of the new baby made him change his mind about Nwoko.
“The birth of this child has answered the question (about the controversy); everybody craves for peace, joy, and happiness. I have accepted everything,” he said.
“I feel very happy having a grandchild and that is why I am here. I traveled all the way from Lagos to this place just to celebrate with the family.
“I told him (Nwoko) and the mother to call him Ifechukwude which means what God has written.”
Ghanaian Actress Akuapem Poloo Finally Arrested Over Nude Photo With Son
Despite her remorse and plea to the public in a video, she released later, actress Akuapem Poloo whose real name is Rosemond Alade Brown has been finally arrested by the Police in Ghana over the nude photo of her and her son.
According to the reports coming in, Akuapem Poloo is being sent to the headquarters of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit of the Police in Accra.
It would be recalled that Akuapem Poloo posted a photo of herself without any clothes and had her son wearing only underpants.
The photo sparked outrage on social media and led to a massive debate as to whether she had done the right thing.
After the post went viral, it was reported that Child Rights International petitioned the CID to act over the matter since Akuapem Poloo had violated some laws and also breached some Child Acts.
Rosemond Brown took down the post and apologized to the general public over the post.
After she celebrated her son’s birthday, she made a self-recorded video with her son in which they both apologized to the public over the issue.
However, the authorities would have none of that as she has been taken to DOVVSU’s headquarters in Accra for questioning.
