Following his father’s murder, Cross of Big Brother Naija Season 6 revealed how his family was kidnapped.
Cross said he was kidnapped together with his mother and brothers and had to seek asylum in the United States to defend themselves during an Instagram live session.
This was said by the BBNaija star while narrating the traumatic event he and his family had shortly after his father’s death.
“After my father died, we were kidnapped, and they tried to kill my mother, so she decided that the only way to keep us safe was to depart and seek refuge in another country.
“It exposed me to the ups and downs of life and formed me into who I am today,” Cross said, adding that he has recovered from the kidnapping trauma.
Cross stated that the trauma he had while seeking asylum in a strange nation shaped him into the person he is now.
Pastor Uji Grace Okonkwo is Cross’s mother, and his father is the late Ezego of Ihiala.
