Actor Saint Obi And Wife, Lynda Amobi Reportedly In Messy Divorce Saga
Nollywood Veteran, Saint Obi , is allegedly locked in a messy divorce saga with his wife, Lynda Amobi.
According to Court documents shared online by E-Nigeria, Saint Obi was the one who started the divorce procedure, while his wife, Lynda Amobi, appears to be sabotaging the process.
Sources disclosed that Lynda Amobi has repeatedly failed to appear in court when the case was called up, causing the Judge, Justice Omotayo O. Majekodunmi, to issue a bench warrant for her arrest.
Ms. Lynda Amobi (previously Lynda Saint-Nwafor), an MTN Nigeria executive, and actor Saint Obi (Obinna Nwafor) married in a lavish ceremony in December 2006 in the former’s homeland of Anambra, and the couple has three gorgeous children: two boys and a girl.
The divorce was filed on the basis of an alleged attempt on the actor’s life, which was reportedly orchestrated by his wife and her brothers, Michael Amobi and Chukwumobi Amobi, in a suit filed at the High Court of Ogun State with suit number HCT/128/2019 filed by Petitioner, Mr. Saint Obi.
Sources added that Ms. Lynda Amobi has allegedly “imprisoned” the children by hiring Mobile Police officers to protect them without the father’s permission and therefore preventing Saint Obi access to their children.
Meanwhile, Saint Obi, who left the movie industry years ago to pursue a different career, is no stranger to divorce controversies, as the actor’s first marriage to the daughter of a Lagos pastor ended in divorce years ago.
Born Obinna Nwafor in 1965 the talented thespian has been in films such as Candle Light, Sakobi, Goodbye Tomorrow, Heart of Gold, Festival of Fire, Executive Crime, and Last Party, to mention a few.
The Theatre Arts graduate from the University of Jos entered the acting scene in 1996, and appeared in nearly 60 films.
