Toke Makinwa & Maje Ayida’s marriageAccording to the controversial media personality, 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.”

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.

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.

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.

“He just wanted to move on,” Toke had said.
