Cross Big Brother Naija

Big Brother Naija reality star Ikechukwu Sunday popularly known as Cross has revealed how his family was kidnapped in Nigeria following his father’s death.

The 30-year-old who made this known during an Instagram live session on Wednesday said he was kidnapped with his mother and siblings and had to seek asylum in the United States to protect themselves.

Cross said this while recounting the horrible experience he and his family passed through shortly after his father’s death.

“After my dad’s death we were kidnapped and they tried to kill my mother so she thought the best situation for us to be safe was to flee and seek asylum in a different country.

“That exposed me to the ups and downs of life and shaped me to be who I am today but I’ve recovered from the kidnap trauma,” Cross said.
