There was a drama in Agege Grade ‘A’ Customary Court when a 29-year-old Nollywood actress, Mrs. Enitan Ogunkeye, who filed for divorce against her husband, Mr. Adekunle Ogunkeye, accused him of dubious behaviour, constant beating and drunkenness.
The couple exchanged harsh words over their drinking habit.
”My husband drinks a lot and, anytime he drinks, he misbehaves. He has lost respect and reduced in size due to his drinking habit.
He has been disgraced many times in public because of his drinking habit”, Enitan said. She told the court that she could no longer live with the husband because they fight over money frequently. Meanwhile, the 43-year old husband, a civil servant, said: “I agree that I am a drunkard but we are birds of a feather because we both drink.”
Adekunle told the court that the N50,000 he collected from his wife was spent on their son’s birthday for which his wife told him some artistes would be around but nobody came while all the things she bought were wasted.
”My wife is a wasteful spender. As an actress, she sees herself as a celebrity despite the fact that she is not well known in Nollywood,” he said.
The court president, Mr Emmanuel Shokunle, ordered both parties to maintain peace and adjourned the case to Sept.19 for further hearing.
