This story went viral some days back but I didn't touch it because I wanted to get the real facts...and here's what I can tell you about Nollywood actor Rich Oganiru and his arrest for allegedly killing his wife.
He really was arrested but he has since been granted bail. The police confirmed that the Nollywood actor was arrested and is being investigated in connection with the alleged killing of his wife.
Rich Oganiru, who is one of the pioneering members of the Actor's Guild of Nigeria, was married to a rich Abuja-based business woman who fell ill and was hospitalized for over three months in a hospital in Abuja. She had a fibroid operation a few weeks before her death. The fibroid operation was supposedly successful and she was discharged. The woman was said to have died at home the same day she was discharged. It was Rich Oganiru who picked her up from the hospital. Please continue...
Immediately after her death, the woman's family petitioned the police saying they believe Oganiru killed her because of some of the things the late wife had told some family members before she died and also because Rich had been trying for a while to get rid of the woman and acquire her wealth. He had supposedly started selling off some of her properties even before she passed. They told the police that Rich Oganiru gave her a poisonous pill that ended her life.
The police then arrested Oganiru on suspicion of murder, but later granted him bail because according to them, there was no sufficient evidence that he had a hand in his wife's death. And contrary to what the wife's family is alleging, poison was not found in the deceased body when an autopsy was carried out.
Some think her death is connected with her fibroid operation...though investigations are ongoing!
And there was never a time Rich Oganiru confessed to killing his wife. If he had done that, the police would never have granted him bail.
That's all I know for now...but the story hasn't ended. We are waiting for the police to finish their investigations
