The truth about Nollywood actor Rich Oganiru's arrest for allegedly killing his wife

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

I don't believe you Linda because u take sides. You refused to tell us Kevin Onuchukwu's story of Ogochukwu's friends. Whereas, you publicised Ogo's fam's story. Wen other bloggers started talking, her fam banned everyone from commenting on d page. I can't wait to hear the true story

Somebody is being smeared here becos of the supposed wealth of Rich's late wife by her family members.
Does anyone know how she made her money? If d husband has been running around with a younger lady while he was with his late wife,that even worsens his case.
Ppl keep ur hands clean in anything u do int his life pls.

In Nigeria, u r guilty until proven innocent. It's a shame that people sometimes act very ignorant. An unexplained death is quickly associated to someone/voodoo is behind it

All these loop holes all over the place. Only God knows the talk story of what happened

Anonymous said...

In my opinion,their accusation is baseless.did he give her the fibroid?also i dnt believe he could have poisoned her knowing that an autopsy would detect that.

Arrest without merit....no evidence
Let autopsy be done to rule out post operative complications... And poisoning.
Too bad his behaviors are suspicious too..

OMG der is no way dis man wil kill his wife bcos him n his wife r both decons in a vry known church in AbJ, its unfortuate dat it happened dis way. May her soul RIP

NYC-1 says: Nigeria Police SLOGAN: "We Are Investigating." It's just a slogan. Why will the police arrest a bereaved man without sufficienct evidence? I am just sick and tired the way things are done in Niaja. Couldn't it be possible that his inlaws might just want to play mischief card? Are there no medical practitioners to explain to these bunch of illitrate police guys what Fibroid is? My question to the NPF guys is: how much did Oganiru's inlaws pay you to harass him?

but come to think of it, fibroid is not a disease that you can go off easily by operations in nigeria....its very dangerous to get operated on in nigeria for fibroid.i have seen a lot of people died including family friends this way. I think the hospital just want to cover their own mistake and accused the husband for what he did not do. could anyone remember stella obasanjo.....she died after the the supposed successful operation. i do not believe the actor can poison her wife when he knows it will be investigated.

Linda thx so much for scrutinizing before publishing, it doesn't take people anything to tarnish other people's image. Actually i like this man especially after watching how he interpreted his role very well in "QUEEN OF ASO ROCK" but when this news filtered everywhere that he took the life of his wife i was so disappointed and devastated.....linda thx for giving me and other LIBers another lease of life...this is indeed a good news for the new month. God bless u.

My favorite blogger I read this news in Nairaland that he poisoned her which I believe it is false allegation leveled against him. I respect Mr. Rich Oganiru thanks a bunch for debunking the rumor your facts are always on point. May her soul rest in peace.

ravenmortal said...

Dont understand - if the autopsy is concluded, ruling out death by poison, then why is there still uncertainty as to whether her death was medically related or not? The coroner who performed the autopsy should determine the cause of death, not the police. Does not make sense.

Dr. Chinwe said...

First of all - a person can die from post-operartive complications from surgery even at the hands of the best doctor in the world.

Fibroid surgery is simple yet very complicated if things go wrong and many women have died from such fibroid surgery, during surgery and afterwards.

Women can literally bleed to death on the operating table, or after or even have internal bleeding or a massive heart attack and die. It is this simple.

If the autopsy clears him of poisoning then her family should take out a full page apology and not blame him for their loss.

Considering she died shortly after return from hospital leads me to assume that she died of post-operative complications.

In my 22 years of Obgyn. practice l have seen a lot of deaths from simple fibroid surgery especially from Nigeria/Africa. I have done 100s of fibroid repair work on women who were supposedly worked on by butchers in Nigeria. These ladies go on to conceive and have healthy babies and others their periods become normal and they lead a happier life.

I have removed 38 fribroids from a lady with the biggest @ 24cm. She has 2 lovely kids.

I am working to have a specialist women's hospital in Nigeria or centrally in Africa where african women can come and have safe, clean and affordable surgery and treatment like their counterparts in the developed world.

Clowns masquerading as butchers need be stopped.

God help!!!!!

Dear Linda,i like your blog but sometimes you can act very unprofessional.The caption of this story is very faulty,how do you know the truth about Oganiru,s wife death?This is probably his version of what happened,or d police (whom he cld have bribed)what U ought to say is whoose version you re writing and let ur readers decide whether its d the truth or not.Ive read through the comments here,and many pple are already exonorating him simply because of ur bias.The only person who can say the truth about what happened is his dead wife and God.You must know the power you have as a blogger,so pls use it wisely.Thank you

Thanks doc, no surgery is simple even in the hands of the best surgeon. I have lost two family members to fibroid surgery done abroad so it isn't just the matter of where the surgery is done. For everyone reading the comments, make it a duty to acquire knowledge by simply searching what fibroid is and what it's treatments entails. It adds to u and u see the case better. The location of the fibroid is as important as the size of the fibroid. I hope this helps. As for the case, only God knows and every sinner will always be punished even thou we may not know when.

Linda is right.. I saw this story in the internet, that rich is in Kuje Prison. I had to call rich and we spoke, he explained everything, just as the linda said, it was mere allegation and he is not in any prison. Lets not always jump to conclusion when we see anything online. Because some people are always out to smear people. Rich has been proving to be innocent. He was in church yesterday.
