Kalu Ikeagwu Divorce
Kalu Ikeagwu, a Nollywood actor, told an Ikeja High Court on Monday how his separated wife, Ijeoma, reportedly abandoned their matrimonial house and denied him sex after their baby was born.
Ikeagwu is trying to dissolve his six-year marriage to Ijeoma in the suit LD/8939HD/2021, according to the Nigerian News Agency.
In addition, the star wants full custody of his three-year-old son and ten-year-old stepdaughter.
Ikeagwu said his wife packed out of his matrimonial home and sent him a mail saying she was on her way to her father’s house in Enugu under cross-examination by the respondent’s counsel, Mrs S.I. Amedu.
He, on the other hand, said that he later saw her with the children at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, contradicting her account.
“I got back home from a trip on August 4, 2021 to find out that my wife had left our matrimonial home with the children to an undisclosed location.
“I tried to contact her when I got to the house and found it empty. I sent her an email on that same day and she replied that she had gone to her father’s house in Enugu.
“She told me she was at her father’s place in Enugu and four days later, I saw her at the airport in Lagos, heading to God knows where. In the mail she sent, she said she was in Enugu.”
Ikeagwu also debunked the claim that he sent his wife and kids out of the house and failed to provide for their upkeep.
He said, “I did not send her out of the house. Someone has to tell me why it takes four days to get to Enugu from Lagos.
“If you say ‘you are on your way’ it means it is a continuous sentence. It was a stated fact that she was on her way.
The actor further told the court that his wife denied him sex and also poured water on him while he was asleep.
The petitioner also said he was not aware that his wife lost a pregnancy due to a Sexually Transmitted Infection while they were together.
“After the birth of our son, she has refused to have sex with me. I was not aware she lost the pregnancy due to an infection as I did not give her any infection.
“Till date, I have not seen any report attached to a document that she lost a baby through STD. Though I did not ask her why she lost the baby.”
Ikeagwu said he stopped sending money to the children for upkeep and maintenance because his wife denied him being the father to his stepdaughter.
He added that this was after she accused him of attempting to sleep with the child and she failed to acknowledge the money he sent to her.
“The last time I sent money to them was in November 2021. I stopped sending money because my wife denied me being a father to my step-daughter and she also accused me of wanting to sleep with her,”
the actor said.
On why he was seeking custody of his stepdaughter whom he had earlier sought for revocation of guardianship, the actor said he had information that his wife wanted to relocate the children.
“I want custody of the two children. The reason I sought revocation was because my wife had turned my stepdaughter against me and at that point, I got a hint that she wanted to fly the children abroad.
“I have never been married to any woman before I got married to my wife. I married her after she had her daughter.
“I earlier said the issue of revocation was because I felt she wanted to use me. My Lord, look at the precedence of how I have treated the girl from the very beginning.
“I am an actor by profession and I travel to locations within and outside Nigeria in which I can spend five days to one month.
“At the moment, it may be difficult but I am thinking about the future when I remarry and get a stable wife.”
