A Lagos Island Customary Court has dissolved the 17-year-old marriage between a Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike and his wife, Suzanne Emma.
A three-man panel of the court presided by Chief Awos Awisola, on Thursday, ordered the estranged lovers to go there different ways.
Emeka Ike’s wife, Suzanne, had approached the court seeking dissolution of her marriage to the actor.
Other members of the panel are: Mrs. Opeyemi Olanrewaju and Mr. Kehinde Jacob Olayinka.
Chief Awisola, while delivering the unanimous decision of the three-man panel said: “From all evidences before the court, the marriage between the couple had broken down, and it’s irreconcilable. Consequently, the marriage is hereby dissolved”.
The court, however granted Ike the custody of the four children, but ordered that their mother should be granted unhindered access to the children.
The court also ordered that any party that is dissatisfied with the judgement should appeal within thirty days.
