A popular Nollywood actor Kalu Ikeagwu has dragged his wife to court for allegedly abandoning their matrimonial home.
Ikeagwu, who appeared on Monday, told the Ikeja High Court how his estranged wife; Ijeoma, allegedly deserted their matrimonial home and prevented him from gaining access to their two children.
A report by Peoples Gazette revealed that the Nollywood actor, in the suit marked LD/8939HD/2021, is seeking a dissolution of his six-year-old marriage to Ijeoma. Further, he is seeking full custody of the two kids from the marriage: a 3-year-old boy and 10-year-old stepdaughter.
Under cross-examination by the respondent’s counsel, S.I. Amedu; Ikeagwu said his wife packed out of his matrimonial and sent him a mail that she was going to her father’s house in Enugu. The Nollywood star also denied that he sent his wife and kids out of the house and ailed to provide for their upkeep.
He told the court that his wife denied him sex and poured water on him while he was asleep.
“After the birth of our son, she has refused to have sex with me,’’ he told the court.
In other court-related saga, a former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has dragged the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to court for alleged breach of his fundamental human rights.
1st News reports that Okorocha took out the suit over the alleged invasion of his Abuja residence by the EFCC.
Specifically, on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, EFCC officials had laid a six-hour siege on Okorocha’s residence in Maitama; an up-scale part of Abuja. Although a few protesters had stormed the location to protest his arrest; the development did not stop the EFCC from whisking him away.
Equally important, the EFCC claimed that the arrest of Okorocha followed his alleged refusal to make himself available for trial; with the commission adding that it had to forcefully arrest Okorocha after he jumped an administrative bail.
In addition, the EFCC disclosed that Okorocha artfuly evaded service of court papers over his trial at an Abuja court on charges of conspiracy, stealing, and laundering N2.9 billion of Imo State funds.
