According to court documents which has surfaced online, Uche Elendu claims the late man, identified as one Deacon Iyke Lawson Kanu, was her husband and that they were legally married.
She therefore claims she should be the one inheriting the bulk of his properties.

Uche Elendu also has one daughter with Kanu’s supposed husband.
Blogger Cutie Juls breaks it down such…
“After the [man] passed away and all burials stuff done. Uche through her lawyers went to 2 courts, Abia and Lagos state to put injunctions on some of the man’s properties and froze all the man’s main bank accounts claiming the man married her legally at the registry on 6th May 2022 which was 5 months to the man’s demise.
“Well that marriage certificate if it indeed happened, is null and void because until the man’s de@th, he was still married and living with his wife.
“Their marriage certificate confirms they got married 2004 which makes them legally married for 19yrs before the man passed away.
“Uche also claims she and late Eketebe got married on 6th May 2022 but Cutie has confirmed the man was not even in Nigerian on that date.
“He was in UK receiving medical treatment and he only arrived in the country on the 8th May 2022 with his 2 oldest children who were with him while he attended medical appointments in the UK.
“So who signed that Certificate Uche is holding? Regardless the marriage is null and void because the man cannot have 2 legally married wives.
“Also, the man who was very ill and hospitalised in the UK definitely is not the one Uche married.
“Checking the man’s signature on both marriage certificates, there is a slight difference in the signature. Well that is for the court to rule on that,”
