Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike and his wife, Suzanne Emma, have parted ways.
A Lagos Island Customary Court, South West Nigeria on Thursday, dissolved their 17 year-old marriage.
The three-man panel presided over byAwo Awosola, dissolved the marriage in a judgment following a petition filed by Suzanne.
Other members of the panel of judges were: Opeyemi Olanrewaju andKehinde Jacob Olayinka.
“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 granted Emeka the custody of the four children, but ordered that Suzanne should be granted unhindered access to them.
