He pleads with the Law Court to declare all Proceedings null & void as he no longer wants a divorce from estranged wife, Suzanne.
Considering the cost implication and the aftermath it will have on their children, Emeka Ike is determined to get back his wife.
According to Vanguard, the actor filed an application before a High Court restraining the Lagos Island Customary court from hearing the divorce suit which was filed by Suzanne in 2015.
The mother of four had approached the court to dissolve her 16-year marriage to Emeka Ike on grounds of incessant battery which the actor denied. The divorce case was slated for judgment on Tuesday, 12th July, however, Emeka begged the court not to separate them, stating that he still loves his wife.

On the other hand, Suzanne’s lawyer urged the court to disregard Emeka Ike’s plea and continue the hearing of the case until the judgment is served. He also added that neither his client nor himself had been served with the application of reversal.
“The stay of proceedings has been decided for a long time and court has ruled that it has jurisdiction to entertain the matter. It is a ploy to frustrate my client, they just want to delay the judgment till another day. The court should give its judgment and if they are not satisfied, they can appeal.”
Obviously, Suzzane Ike wants to go ahead with the case, not minding the implication, if any while Emeka says otherwise. Further details on the court’s decision will be shared soon. Let justice prevail.
