Odega also bragged that he does not mind spending several nights in jail after he commits the heinous act.

As expected, the video resulted in the actor receiving backlash from the online community as many tagged him as a wife beater.

In a bid to clear his name, he shared a video on his Instagram page to narrate his own side of the story and what had really led to the fight between him and his wife.

According to Odega, sometimes in the past, he gave his wife the sum of N7m to purchase a property on his behalf, but she never delivered, even though he saw a video recording of her transaction with a real estate agent that handed over the keys and document of the property to her.

He also disclosed that despite her claims that he was not taking care of their daughter, he paid about N900k in school fees just for the previous term.

The recent brawl between them was however, triggered by the fact that she made another outrageous request for school fees when the school was yet to request for it. He also claimed that she attempted to set his daughter against him by getting her to release a scripted video in which she lamented the neglect and unfair treatment she was receiving from her dad.
