The man, Chief Simon Odo who is also known as Onuwa or Father of Many Nations, according to Vanguard, decided to send all his wives packing over allegations that some of his grown sons have been sleeping with the younger ones.

It was gathered that Chief Odo, a native of Aji, Enugu Ezike in Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State, has vowed not to marry again after he accused some of his children of allegedly sleeping with his wives behind him.

Odo who, last year, got married to an 18-year-old lady, Chidinma, however, broke his vow by remarrying her because, according to him, she had pleaded with him to marry her so that she could take care of him as an old man.

“The girl who lured me to marry her returned from the United States. She told me to marry her so that she would take care of me as an old man. She is from Enugu State.”

On the allegation that some of his children had been sleeping with his wives and were also planning to kill him, Odo said that he would disown any of his sons involved in the act.
