The family of Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, had rejected his second marriage to his colleague, Judy Austin Moghalu.
The family’s position was stated by one of his older brothers, Uche, on Instagram.
He also said the family had been begging Yul’s first wife, May, as they accepted that she had been dealt a bad card.
His post reads: “Hello guys. So, my younger brother, Yul Edochie, just married a second wife out of the blue(s) and Nigerians are freaking out.
“We are all shocked. I’m a low-key type of guy and I’ve tried to mind my own business but this circus is chasing me around too.
Here is my take: I see two main problems here. His first wife, Mary, a wonderful woman and my sister-in-law, did not go into a relationship with my brother, agreeing to be part of a polygamous marriage.
That’s the first problem. So, I feel for Mary. It’s not fair on her. My family are not in support. Thus is not what we do and we are trying our best to console Mary. What else can we do?”
