Done Deal!! Toke Makinwa & Maje Ayida’s marriage dissolved

Media personality and Arthur, Toke Makinwa and Maje Ayida are officially over, their marriage was finally dissolved after a year toke filed for divorce from ex husband
It was made official on Thursday at the Igbosere High Court in Lagos as Justice Morenike Obadina delivered the judgement after Ayida failed to respond to the petition filed by Makinwa, annulling their relationship.
She said the position of the law was settled as pleadings did not amount to evidence.
“Pleadings on which no evidence was led are deemed abandoned. Therefore, Ayida’s evidence is deemed abandoned. The effect being that the petitioner’s evidence is unchallenged and uncontroverted,’’ she ruled.
The judge said the issue of cruelty which the petitioner (Toke) relied on was established because of the “mental and emotional stress” she was subjected to by her husband.
“I hold that the marriage has broken down on grounds of intolerable behaviour.
I hereby pronounce a ‘Decree Nisi’ dissolving the marriage between Makinwa and Ayida which was administered at the Federal Marriage Registry, Ikoyi, Lagos, on January 15, 2014.
The order Nisi shall become absolute three months from today unless within that period sufficient cause is shown why it should not be made absolute,” Obadina said.
Makinwa had told the court that her husband committed adultery with Anita Solomon, adding that the relationship produced a child.
She said since their marriage was contracted, Maje had “behaved in a way she could not reasonably be expected to continue to bear”.
She also said Maje was cruel towards her, adding that their differences became irreconcilable.
We Recall that in May, Toke Makinwa appeared in court for cross examination by the counsel representing Ayida, but after she got into the witness box, the counsel communicated Maje’s change of mind, saying that the fitness guru doesn’t want to “join issues” with her and that he just wanted to move on.
