A Nigerian man named Chukwutem Victor Inalu has reacted to the accusations leveled against him by his wife Onyinye Onome.
Onyinye Onome, in a series of Facebook posts and live videos, alleged that her husband sexually molested their 9-month-old baby.
She said her life is in danger for exposing her husband.
She added that she later noticed her son was in severe pains and took him to the hospital where it was confirmed that he was sexually molested.
However, Victor Chukwutem Inalu, in response to the allegations, said his wife fabricated the lies because he requested a DNA test on their son.

My attention has been drawn to a post/ publication made by my wife, wherein she made some several serious allegations, which are defaming in nature. These allegations touch on my character.
I am surprised at my wife’s disposition with respect to the marital challenges our marriage is undergoing. These allegations are very serious and they were personally orchestrated by my wife.
May I, at this point, condemn same, as there are FALSE and FRIVOLOUS.
All these allegations are coming because I requested a DNA test and a dissolution of our marriage because she has become CRUEL and HOSTILE to me at any slightest misunderstanding.
My family and I have decided to go to any length to see that we put a halt to my wife, unwholesome activities.
It is not in doubt that my wife and I have marital challenges, wherein she has pleaded with me profusely to settle same, little did I know that my refusal will prompt her anger to carry out various threats on me. In one of her messages to me, she boasted categorically that she was going to SET ME UP and also go to any length to defame me.
I am not a GAY and I have NEVER sexually molested our 9months and 2weeks old son and i have not in any way threaten my wife’s life or any member of her family as alleged by her in her publications. The reason I left the house after Christmas day, is because of her cruelty and her violent attitude towards me.
I am a hard-working and God-fearing citizen who is incapable of hurting a fly, let alone committing such a grievous act of child molestation.
My personality to humanity can be confirmed by my business allies, my beloved family, my friends, my neighbors and the society at large, I have NEVER had any criminal records all my years of being single and married. I strongly condemn the publication made by my wife and will at this junction highly recommend that she consults a psychiatrist.
The above allegations as alleged by my wife has put me and my entire family in an awkward position.
I have decided to use the appropriate channel to address this issue, my solicitors are currently putting machinery in place to address the libelous statement. I shall not leave any stone unturned..
Voice messages and text messages confirming the true situation of what transpired between me and my wife will be made public in due course.
God bless you all
