Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike has filed a case at a Lagos High Court restraining a Lagos Island customary court from hearing the divorce suit filed by his estranged wife, Emma.
Emma had approached the court to dissolve the 16 years union between her and the Nollywood actor on grounds of incessant battery. The allegation which the actor had vehemently denied, and begged the court not to separate them, saying “I still love my wife’’. When the matter which was slated for judgment came up on Tuesday, Emeka’s lawyer, Mr Abdul Labi-Lawal informed the court that his client had filed a stay of proceedings before a High Court in Lagos.
The Nollywood actor also applied for a perpetual injunction restraining the Customary Court’s President, Awosola, and any other person appointed in the capacity of entertaining and or continuing the proceedings in respect of the couple’s divorce suit. Labi-lawal, therefore, urged the court to stay proceedings on the suit pending the hearing and determination of the suit at the High Court.
