As many may say they have been waiting to hear that Yul Edochie’s first wife, May, has finally filed for divorce to leave her husband, this may be the most eagerly awaited piece of entertainment news in Nigeria.
May Edochie’s complaint was described in full by the DPA Family Law Clinic, along with the reasons why it took her so long to petition for divorce, in a blog post that has now gone popular on Facebook.
It was also revealed in detail why May considers Yul’s marriage to Judy null because her husband married her under the 1970 marriage act and isn’t allowed to have more than one wife at a time, unlike the customary marriage act.
The lengthy post revealed that Yul was recently at his former matrimonial home, which he used to share with May but was denied entry.
The post also shared that Femi Falana’s law firm and Eculaw represent May in court.
It is reported that in her lawsuit, May noted that her husband seems to be under some kind of influence and has been unusually aggressive, erratic, irrational and increasingly threatening.
She is said to have filed a separate charge against Judy for committing adultery with her husband and has demanded N100m in damages.
