Christopher Eribo

Christopher Eribo, a Brooklyn prosecutor, is currently being sued for child support because he left a son in Nigeria and never returned. He never gave financial support to Afoke, his son. Eribo is a veteran prosecutor at the office of the District Attorney and is believed to be earning around $90,000 yearly.

According to Ofunne Chizea, Eribo left them in Nigeria when Afoke was just 8 months old. He said he was just going on a vacation to the United States of America for 2 weeks. Chizea, now 45, is currently suing Eribo for child support for Afoke who is now 18 years old. Both mother and son live Birmingham, England on government assistance while Christopher Eribo lives in Valley Stream, Long Island.

When interviewed, Eribo who’s now 47 years old didn’t want to comment. He now has a wife with whom he shares his 2-story house with. According to the spokeswoman for the office of the District Attorney, Eribo had been trying his best to be a father to Afoke but Chizea was keeping her son away from him.

According to Afoke, he always waited for his father to call him every time his birthday comes but he didn’t call. According to Chizea, she met Eribo in 1994 in Lagos. Their relationship brought forth an offspring in 1995 which made Eribo upset. She said Eribo made promises to look after mother and son. When she gave birth to Afoke, Eribo paid the bill.

When Eribo went to the USA, Chizea received a letter from his sister instructing her to sell all his belongings and use the money. However, the money was quickly gone in early 1997. In 2001, Chizea and Afoke moved to England and Eribo was accepted to work in the office of the District Attorney. In 2003, Eribo went to London to visit Afoke. He never visited his son again.

In 2007, Eribo married a Nigerian woman and his career prospered. On the other hand, Chizea is being advised to file a child-support case in New York because under its state laws a parent can ask for financial support until the child reaches 21 years of age.

    Deadbeat dads come in the uneducated idiots as well as the educated idiots! He should truly be ashamed of himself! I have to put this on his wife also, what kind of women does not insist on her husband paying child support? What does this say about you as women? There is no way I would marry a man that does not pay child support from a previous relationship, what happens when I have a child/children by him and then he finds someone else and leaves!

    All this slander over money but no one slanders these hoes who kill unborn children daily! Women who abort their children are the true deadbeat parents.

      If you truly care about children then you recognize one isn’t worse than the other. Ask the hundreds of thousands of children as well as adults who were once children whose fathers (and in some cases mothers) did not provide for their physical and emotional needs. And if we’re going to talk about women who abort babies, we have to talk about the men who often force or coerce them into doing it.

      It’s not slander if it is true. This guy got his education and good life, yet he denies his son the same opportunity by being in all supportive “absentia”. Whose the hoe?

    Basically this is an personal matter & if the started court proceedings, more power to them… Although in the public sense there are official & elitist who feel laws & social morals regard them….

    I hardly think $90,000 a year is wealthy.

    I don’t think women that have children outside of marriage deserve a thing. Why have a child with a man that doesn’t want u. I think its real stupid and I don’t have any sympathy for them.
