By AfricanMoviesNews

Emeka Ike’s wife Suzanne Rero, has filed for divorce over an alleged domestic violence she faces in her marriage. The couple who got married in 2000 and blessed with 4 children are splitting after Suzanne decided to speak out.

According to her testimony at a Lagos Court, Mrs Ike alleged she had been made a punching bag as her husband battered her during every misunderstanding:

“It was when my husband beat me mercilessly I believed that people truly saw stars whenever they were unconscious. It was my brother who took me to the hospital where I spent two months. There was also a day I was feeding our last child with tea, my husband, out of anger took the tea and poured it on my head.

I even persuaded his sister to bring four of her children to our school without paying a dime but instead of showing appreciation, she said I was a lavish spender and that was how I stopped being in charge of his school,” she told the court.

She also alleged that she was verbally tortured by her husband:

“Each time we fight, he calls me a witch saying whenever he intends to start a project and he informs me it eventually fails. He also said if he hadn’t married me, I would have become a prostitute. Since I left, he doesn’t allow me to speak with our first two children, asking me to come home if I really want to see them. Even when I was in with him, he leaves home for months on the pretext of different appointments. I can’t face all this anymore. I need help.”

The case has been adjourned by the court to July 22. However Emeka Ike has spoken up on his divorce news. In a quick chat with reporters in Abuja yesterday Emeka Ike admitted that he had separated from his wife. He however denied that he has divorced her. He said:

“As I’m talking to you now, I have not received any divorce notice. Nothing like that happened. I have not received any letter from anybody. I am a Christian, we don’t divorce.”

Emma Ike is the only one taking care of the couple’s 4 children in Lagos presently.
