SEGUN ARINZE SEEKS DIVORCE
On Monday May May 25, Star actor, Segun Arinze, sought leave of an Ikeja High Court to dissolve his 13 year old marriage to Annette Aina-Padonou.
They got married on May 10, 1996 at the Ikorodu Local Government Registry and about a year into the marriage, they realised they could not live together as husband and wife. For 11 years now, the estranged couple have remained separated.
Segun explained that their marital differences made his wife pack out of their Surulere residence about 11 years ago. He told Justice Sybil Nwaka to separate them having stayed away from each other since May 29, 1998.
The marriage between Segun and Annete is blessed with a 12 years old daughter, Morenike. While seeking for a permanent separation, he is not opposed to Annete taking custody of their daughter and promised that he would continue to be responsible for her upkeep.
Segun got married to another lady last year. The name of his new wife is Julie, a lawyer and a staff of Slumberger, a multinational company in Nigeria
The divorce case has been adjourned till June 24, 2009 for further hearing.
