Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike recently revealed in an interview with Saturday Beats that his marriage to his Ex-wife, Suzanne was dissolved illegally.
According to Emeka, ”it was a Kangaroo judgment as i didn’t sign any document and neither was i in court with my lawyer.
Emeka said he would only sign the necessary documents if his estranged wife would debunk the stories of domestic violence against her.
“The court dissolved my marriage illegally; I want people to get it right. For you to dissolve a marriage, the man and his lawyer must be present in court to sign some documents. Ask them, was either my lawyer or myself present in court on that day? Is it possible to say the marriage has been dissolved? My wife says that I am a wife beater but the same woman two years ago in church during counselling, wrote it down that I am a caring man who is selfless and loves his family. She wrote that I love her and my lawyer still has the written note. She made this statement at The Redeemed @ssemblies of God church in Magodo, Lagos. Can I possess all these and still beat my wife? Six months later, she began to sing another tune and I know she was advised by some people that it was the only way to leave the marriage. The reason why I have not signed the papers is because of the blackmail involved and my name that has been tarnished. She is spoiling my name; I would fight to clear myself of being called a wife beater with everything I have. I hate being referred to as a wife beater because I am not one. Any man that does that does not deserve to be called a father or a man because you are stronger than the woman.”
