Saint Obi’s Family Reacts To Zik Zulu Okafor’s Allegations

Saint Obi’s sisters have issued a press release in response to Okafor’s allegations

Days after news of the actor’s death broke, Okafor, who describes himself as a close friend of the deceased actor, wrote an article that cast Obi’s wife and extended family in a negative light.

He claimed that the actor endured constant harassment from his wife’s siblings, which eventually led to the dissolution of their marriage and a decline in Obi’s health.

Vanguard reports that the two elder sisters of the actor have issued a press release on behalf of the family stating that the allegations made in the article are untrue.

Speaking for the Nwafor Family, Ugoeze Edith Chinyere Obichuku, and Freda Nwachukwu wrote::

“Our attention has been drawn to the publication by one Mr. Zik Zulu Okafor concerning the death of our son, Saint Obi, and the accompanying negative commentary in social and other media portraying his widow in an unfair and most defamatory manner.

This is in no way, shape or form an accurate portrayal of the Lynda that we know and relate with.”

hey added that the insensitive and false allegations were made without any input from the family.

In their words, “The Nwafor family also views the said article by Mr. Okafor as sad and most unfortunate.

They are false, malicious and insensitive to the wife, children and entire family he left behind.”
