Court dissolves Emeka Ike’s marriage



A Lagos Island Customary Court on Thursday dissolved the marriage between Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, and his wife, Emma over alleged incessant battery.

According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, Emma, a teacher, had on July 13, 2015 approached the court to dissolve the 14-year-old marriage between her and Emeka.

The Court President, Mr Awos Awosola, said that from the evidence before the court, it was obvious that the marriage was beyond redemption.



“Emeka, who has been begging to be reconciled with his wife, has not made any effort towards the reconciliation.

“The marriage is hereby dissolved with effect from March 2, in accordance with the Lagos State Customary Court Law, 2011; Order 3 Rule 7 as amended.

“Any party that is not satisfied with the judgment has the right to appeal to any court of higher jurisdiction within 30 days from today,’’ the court president ruled.

Awosola awarded the custody of their four children to the husband and ordered that the wife must have unhindered access to them.

He said that the sum of N300 paid as Emma’s bride price had been returned to Emeka and urged both parties to maintain peace.

The mother of four children had earlier told the court that her husband had been physically and verbally abusing her all through the duration of their marriage.

She said, “My husband treated me like nobody and throughout this divorce tussle, he had denied me access to my children.

“He does not allow them to pick my call as he keeps changing their numbers.

“The last time I heard my first son’s voice was when he was sick and about to undergo surgery.

“It was a friend who informed me that my son was in the hospital and I called Emeka, asking him for the location of the hospital. But he refused to tell me.

“He refused to collect all items that I bought for the children during Christmas from me.”

She then prayed the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her free access to her children.

Emeka, who had earlier denied the allegations, begged the court not to separate them because he still loved and had always cherished his wife.


He said that their marital problems began when she started taking money from the proceeds of the school he established for her without his consent

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
