“My ex-wife slapped me and I hit her back” – Actor, Ibrahim Chatta, speaks on his first marriage

Nollywood actor and producer, Ibrahim Chatta, has revealed that his former wife’s attitude, is the reason why he divorced her. Chatta, who is now in his second marriage, debunked allegations that what tore his first union apart, was assault and battery, like some reports claimed.

“I didn’t batter my ex-wife contrary to what people think,” he insisted. “The only time I hit her was the day she slapped me for dating another woman. We were not married. We dated and we had a baby. The mother of my child never stayed at home whenever I away for movie roles. She was always away and because of her attitude I started dating other women who helped me at home. She was misbehaving so I had to let her go.

“I couldn’t condone her indecent dressing. We were not married but that does not give her the right to misbehave. The mistake I made was to feature her in my movie. The result was that she wouldn’t come home for months. I was the one taking care of our child. Is that a woman to marry? I dumped her because I could no longer cope with her.”

Chatta got married to the daughter of former Kwara State governor, Salamatu Lafiaji, last December.
