A former member of the House of Representatives, Ned Nwoko, has explained why he separated from his Moroccan wife, Laila.
The explanation was issued in a statement by Nwoko’s media team via his Instagram page.
The statement also dispelled rumours that his separation was linked to the use of a local aphrodisiac called ‘Kayamata’, sold by Hauwa Mohammed, popularly known as Jaruma.
Nwoko’s team revealed that his marriage with Laila “degenerated to irreconcilable differences rooted in indecent conduct on the part of Laila which started whilst she was on holiday in London.”

The statement partly read, “The attention of Prince Ned Nwoko’s Media directorate has been drawn to a publication trending especially in the social media linking his separation with his Moroccan born wife, Laila Nwoko, to the influence of a local aphrodisiac called “Kayamata”, vended by one Hauwa Saidu Mohammed, commonly known as Jaruma.” (sic)
“We note with a sense of responsibility that prince Ned Nwoko has nothing whatsoever to do with Jaruma products in relation to his cordial relationship with his actress wife, Regina Daniels.
“Ned Nwoko Media Directorate wishes to reiterate that himself and the entire family has no connection with Jaruma products contrary to false narratives even as he bears no blame on the widely reported divorce issue with Laila.”
