My Marriage Was Dissolved Illegally – Emeka Ike

Even as Emeka Ike’s marriage to his ex wife, Suzanne, was dissolved by the court not too long ago, Emeka said it was a “Kangaroo judgment”, as he didn’t sign any document and neither he nor his lawyer was in court.

Emeka said he would only sign the necessary documents if his estranged wife would debunk the stories of domestic violence against her.

 “The court dissolved my marriage illegally; I want people to get it right. For you to dissolve a marriage, the man and his lawyer must be present in court to sign some documents. Ask them, was either my lawyer or myself present in court on that day? Is it possible to say the marriage has been dissolved? My wife says that I am a wife beater but the same woman two years ago in church during counselling, wrote it down that I am a caring man who is selfless and loves his family. She wrote that I love her and my lawyer still has the written note. She made this statement at The Redeemed Assemblies of God church in Magodo, Lagos. Can I possess all these and still beat my wife? Six months                      later, she began to sing another tune and I know she was advised by some people that it was the only way to leave the marriage.

I Spent 10million Of My Money To Marry You, Sit Down And Be Humble, Yahoo Boy!!! - Tonto Dikeh Drag Her Ex Husband, Churchill Over His Recent Interview

Excerpts from Churchill's interview about his marriage to Tonto;

On marriage and life after divorce
"I’ve not seen my child since December and I have no option. I can’t see him forcefully because Tonto Dikeh can use anything against you. She is an extremist. The drama was too much and nobody likes that. “I was warned by friends and family not to marry her but didn’t heed the advice. I gave her the chance and she failed."

On domestic violence allegations 
“She claimed I beat her but at that moment, I wasn’t at home – I was in Ghana. I tried to protect my family but she made things difficult. She’s not someone you can beat! All her allegations were planned to bring me down. The incident that happened in my mum’s house was on December 20, 2016. She had a charity event on December 22 but there was no evidence of beatings on her body. You can Google online to see the dates’ intervals about her ‘road fixing’ in Abuja.

Lady Left Injured After Pastor Poured Liquid Substance Into Her Vagina During Deliverance In Ekiti State

An Ekiti State pastor has been accused of causing injuries to a woman, Mrs. Omowale's private part, after he allegedly poured a liquid substance into her vagina during deliverance.

In an interview with Omo Edema of Voice 89.9FM, she said: “I live in Lagos. One day, my younger brother called me that there was a prophecy from his Prophet, Prophet Oni Olakanye of CAC Palace of Mercy, Mathew, Olokuta, Ado-Ekiti, that I would need to come down to Ado-Ekiti for prayers concerning my infertility.

I have married since 2011, but no child. So I discussed the issue with my husband and he allowed me travel to visit the prophet. When I got to the prophet, a few days later, he first prayed with me at the church reception.

He subsequently called me down into one of the rooms in the mission house where he placed a mirror under my private part—the exercise he called inspection, and later poured some liquid substance in my private part and fingered it in by himself.
