Jude Ighalo’s estranged wife, Sonia, has disclosed that she is still traditionally and legally married to the footballer.
Jude and Sonia had a marital crisis in 2020 and have since been separated.
In a chat with her Instagram followers on Monday, January 3, Sonia revealed that they are not divorced as they are still legally and traditionally married.
In January 2020, the ex-Super Eagles forward and his childhood sweetheart turned wife, Sonia, deleted their photos from their respective Instagram pages, fueling speculations of the crisis n the marriage.
Since then, both of them have not been seen together and have neither shared each other’s photos as they ceased celebrating their wedding anniversary.
The duo even went as far as pulling off their wedding bands.
Sonia subsequently reverted to her maiden name, “Adesuwa”, on social media.
Later on, Sonia subtly called out Ighalo, via her post, for allegedly welcoming two babies from two different women and purportedly refusing to pay child support.
While congratulating him on the birth of his baby from another woman, Sonia however maintains her position as his legal wife. According to Sonia’s Instastories in pidgin and English, “Congrats Ighalo on the arrival of your baby (Feb) I just dey receive court email now lmao. We don many. Ah Father Abraham. Still one legally married wife. 2baby mamas 5kids and some slay queens still dey fight to enter. Y’all dey ment. Adesuwa baby, you are doing well.”
Ighalo, circuitously responded to the message by writing on his Instagram: “You can never bring a good man down. Who God has blessed, no one can curse #itstoolatetofail.”
Moments after his reaction to the accusations, Sonia took again to her Instastories to respond thus: “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword. You can’t bring a good woman down.”
