Nigerian actor, Gideon Okeke has cried out over the aftermath of his divorce from his wife, Chidera.
In October, 2022, the celebrity dad issued out a PSA confirming his divorce from his wife after four years of marriage.
Opening up on his divorce, Okeke said he was served breakfast (which is a slang for being dumped) by his wife adding that it has been a hard hot pill that he had to swallow, but it humbled him.
However, in a recent post, the father of two is speaking out on the aftermath of his divorce as he reveals the hardest part he is dealing with.
According to Okeke, the Federal Government melted a harsh punishment on him for a marriage that did not work out.
He further revealed that he has restricted access to his two boys until they turn 18-years old because he didn’t win their custody during divorce proceedings.
Okeke also noted that he can’t take his children out to have fun because his visitation rights are bound to the four walls of a compound.
Taking to his Instagram story, he wrote:
“When I think of my 18year jail sentence I remember even people on death row get 3 visitations as part of the last living rights and the choice of a planned meal before their execution.
People serving life, get visitation even leading up to a conjugal. These are rights laid out for the ones who have wronged society. Whose rightful place is in the gallows.
But parental alienation and depravation is an ill punishments upon a father who wants to be there for his sons. But by the Federal Government of my kids affairs… I don’t get custody and yet my visitation rights are restricted, ONLY with the 4 corners of their compound. As in I cant even take them for ICE CREAM.See Also
A marriage went south. this is MY L in Lesson.”
Reflecting on the possible outcome of restricting him from the lives of his kids before they turn eighteen, Okeke shared a picture of his first son, Ezra and noted that he would show up at his doorstep one day before his ban elapses.
“See this boy… I have no doubt that one day before “18 year shadow ban” elapses, (by the Federal Govt of those who know it all) Dude will show up at my doorstep. One day.”
Gideon and Chidera got married in 2019 at a star-studded wedding ceremony in Lagos. Prior to their white wedding, the couple held their traditional wedding in December 2018. Their marriage produced two kids.
