Emeka Ike has been in the news lately not for any new movie but because of the messy divorce scandal rocking his marriage.
In 2015 the actor’s wife, Suzanne Emma filed for a divorce on the allegation of domestic violence leading to the end of their marriage. Emeka Ike had earlier denied the divorce rumours.
Fast forward to March 2017, a Lagos Island Customary Court finally dissolved the marriage. The panel dissolved the marriage in a judgment following a petition filed by Suzanne.
“From all evidence before the court, the marriage between the couple had broken down, and it is irreconcilable, consequently, the marriage is hereby dissolved,” said the court.
The court then proceeded to grant Emeka the custody of their four children but ordered that Suzanne should be granted unhindered access to them.
