Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike’s wife, Emma, has filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage.
Mrs Emma Ike told the court that her husband was in the habit of beating her at the slightest provocation.
She also spoke of how they lost their school to the government after her husband stopped her from managing it.
Her words: “It was when my husband beat me mercilessly I believed that people truly saw stars whenever they were unconscious. It was my brother who took me to the hospital where I spent two months. There was also a day I was feeding our last child with tea, my husband, out of anger took the tea and poured it on my head.”
“I even persuaded his sister to bring four of her children to our school without paying a dime but instead of showing appreciation, she said I was a lavish spender and that was how I stopped being in charge of his school,”
“Each time we fight, he calls me a witch saying whenever he intends to start a project and he informs me it eventually fails. He also said if he hadn’t married me, I would have become a prostitute,” Mrs Ike said.
“Since I left, he doesn’t allow me to speak with our first two children asking me to come home if I really want to see them. Even when I was in with him, he leaves home for months on the pretext of different appointments. I can’t face all this anymore. I need help”.
The divorce case has been adjourned till July 22, 2015.
Emeka Ike is blessed with four kids. The family is based in Abuja.
