Emeka Ike’s wife, Emma wants the court to grant her divorce.
Emeka Ike’s wife, Emma, has filed a divorce suit against her husband on the allegation of domestic violence.
Emeka Ike, a well known Nollywood actor, earlier debunked the claim as untrue;
As I’m talking to you now, I have not received any divorce notice. Nothing like that happened. I have not received any letter from anybody. I am a Christian, we don’t divorce.
However, Emeka Ike was begging the Lagos Island Customary Court yesterday not to dissolved his marriage, saying he still loves his wife, Emma.
Emma seeks the dissolution of their 12-year-old marriage. Emeka’s counsel claimed that his client has not appeared in court because he is ill.
My client is ill but I will try my best possible he comes on the next adjourned date. We indulge the court to give us six months from this day to see if there is possibility of settlement between the couple.
Emma claimed that six months was to far and lamented that she has been estranged from her children.
The last time I wanted to speak with our children, it was my mother-in-law who picked the call and asked if I had read Exodus 21 which says that if I go, I shouldn’t return.
However, the court granted only two weeks adjournment. Emeka Ike’s wife also disclosed that;
Over two years since I left the house, he never taught of reconciliation. He had every opportunity to ask me to return but he didn’t. So why now?
If I was still with him, I may not survive. I was 19-year old when I met him and he was the one who deflowered me. I see no reason I shouldn’t be treated with utmost respect.
Due to physical torture, my health has been affected. There was even a time I thought I had breast cancer because I felt a lump on one part of my breast.
Emma claims all doors of negotiation have been closed.
