Testifying before Honourable Justice S. Nwaka, the popular actor said on Monday that there was so much argument and hostility between him and his estranged wife.

“This has led to a total break-down of the marriage; she packed out of my house on 29 May, 1998, and we have been living apart since then”, Segun Arinze said.

He said that before their relationship went sour, the marriage had been blessed with a 12-year-old daughter.

While being led in evidence by his lawyer, Mr Henry Efere, Arinze testified that he had called his friends and family to help speak to her parents to convince her, but all entreaties fell on deaf hear.

“I take care of my child, pay her school fees, and an agreed sum and the monthly up-keep. I will continue to fend for her until she comes of age”, Arinze informed the court.

The Nollywood actor told the court that he had no opposition to his daughter’s continued stay with her mother.

The couple was joined on May 10, 1996, at the Ikorodu Marriage Registry.

Further hearing has been fixed for 24th June 2009.
