Rita Edochie, the veteran Nollywood actress, has slammed actor, Yul Edochie for demanding bride price from his estranged wife, May Edochie.
Recall that Yul had earlier in an Instagram post on Wednesday, demanded the refund of the bride price paid in marrying May Edochie, his first wife.
Reacting to the development in a post on her official Facebook page, Yul’s aunty, Rita Edochie, noted that May has no rights to return the bride price of a man.
“A woman has no right to return the bride price of a man; rather it is the man who moves to the woman’s hometown with his kinsmen to ask for the return of the bride price, same way he went to pay initially.
“Queen May has been asking for a divorce. She urged Yul our son to come retrieve the bride price but he kept holding back thinking queen May would later give in to his polygamous intentions.
“Not until late 2023 when the matter was taken to court, only then did he start demanding the bride price which you (Judy Austin) have been pushing him to do.
“The unfortunate thing is that this matter is now in full custody of the court and nothing can be done till the case is over in court. So I repeat, no pride price can be returned except with consent and order from the court. So you have to wait till whenever.”
