Nigerian comedian, Onyebuchi Ojieh, popularly known as Buchi, has called out his estranged wife’s family over his inability to access the children.
Naija News reports that the comedian, in a series of posts via his Instagram page on Saturday, said the ex-inlaws are leaders at the Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG) in the United States and their pastor is aware of the case.
He claimed his former inlaws are demanding exorbitant amounts from him before seeing him and communicating with the kids.
According to him, his communication with his daughter was reduced from twice a week to one video call and then to voice note, adding that they always block him after every call until he responds to their demand.
He wrote: “Mr and Mrs Salami, you have my kids, your plan worked. I am not fighting you, you are leaders at the Redeemed Christian church there I know for sure that RCCG Nigeria will not allow such. You need to tell me why I can’t speak with my kids. Please if you are in the US help me call the church. The pastor knows the matter! Leaders should be examples. Enough is enough.
