Saint Obi’s Family Debunks Claims He Suffered In His Marriage, Sets To Announce His Burial Date

May 19, 2023

According to movie director Zik Zulu, the late actor Obinna Nwafor, commonly known as Saint Obi, was subjected to alleged cruelty by his wife Lynda during their marriage. The actor’s family has vehemently denied this.

Zulu’s claims were rejected by the family as being untrue, spiteful, and inconsiderate.

Remember that Obi and Lynda’s marriage was reportedly troubled, according to a recent piece by Zik Zulu.

Zulu claims that immediately after their marriage, Saint Obi cut ties with everyone, including his fellow actors.

Zulu further said that because of Lynda’s prominent position in a telecoms firm, Obi had run-ins with his in-laws who saw him as a gold digger.

These revelations shocked many Nigerians, prompting some to criticize Lynda on social media platforms.

However, in an official statement by Saint Obi’s elder sisters, Ugoeze Edith Chinyere Obichuku and Mrs. Freda Nwachukwu, the family vehemently disavowed Zik Zulu’s claims.

The family categorically dismissed the allegations as unfounded, malicious, and lacking empathy, asserting that they do not align with their understanding of Lynda’s character.

The statement reads:


Our attention has been drawn to the publication by one Mr. Zik Zulu Okafor concerning the death of our son, Mr. Obinna Nwafor, popularly known as 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.

The Nwafor family also views the said article by Mr. Okafor as sad and most unfortunate. It was neither written in consultation with any member of the family nor authored with our consent or authority. We totally disassociate ourselves from it.

The views and allegations contained therein are entirely the opinion of the writer. They are false, malicious and insensitive to the wife, children and entire family he left behind.

This is a mourning period for the family, and while we appreciate the condolences of friends, fans, and well-wishers, we ask that the family’s privacy be respected at this time.

The funeral rites will be communicated to the public in due course.

May the soul of our dearly beloved brother, son, father and husband, rest in perfect peace. Amen. Signed, Ugoeze Edith Chinyere Obichuku Mrs. Freda Nwachukwu Eldest Sister (Texas, U.S.A) Elder Sister (Jos, Nigeria)
