Wife of Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, Emma, can no longer bear the constant domestic violence she gets from her husband, Emeka as she has been said to have filed for a divorce.

According to report by TNS, the couple marriage which has spanned about 12 years, is heading towards breakup as Emma told a customary court that her husband has turned her into a punching bag while calling her a witch anytime they fought.

She stated that in one of their misunderstanding, her husband beat her up that she had to spend two months in the hospital after her brother came to her aide.

“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,” she told the court.

Furthermore, “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.”

With the court taking it's time to examine the case before it; the case has been adjourned until July 22, 2015.
