Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike is preventing his estranged wife Emma Ike from divorcing him by filing an application before a High Court restraining a lower court from hearing the divorce suit filed by his wife.
Emma had sometime in 2015 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."
The actor is using all means possible to keep he and Emma married including citing that the marriage was conducted in Enugu State under the Igbo customs and traditions. Emeka also urged the High Court to declare that all the proceedings already conducted by the Customary Court in respect of couple’s marriage be rendered null and void.
After listening to the submissions of both parties, the High court said; “In view of the submission of the respondent, the stay of proceedings is hereby granted, and the matter is hereby adjourned sine die.’’
