In 2012, the actor was embroiled in a controversy that saw the decline of his career. He was arrested for allegedly killing his wife in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory.
According to reports, Oganiru was arrested following a petition by family and relations of his late wife who claimed he poisoned her.
Oganiru maintained his innocence, stating he never killed his wealthy wife.
