May and Yul Edochie’s divorce case stalled, lawyer explains why

Lawyer speaks as the divorce between the popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie and his estranged first wife, May Edochie is stalled.

It would be recalled that reports made the rounds some months ago, revealing that May Edochie requested a divorce from her husband, as she has no intention of being in a polygamous marriage.

May’s legal counsel, Emeka Ugwuonye recently took to social media to give an update on the progress of the case.

He revealed that the divorce case has been stalled due to the absence of Yul and Judy’s lawyer.

Trial could not go ahead today as scheduled because two days ago, Yul Edochie’s and Judy Austin’s lawyer wrote a letter to the court stating that he was unwell and stating that he would not be present in court today as a result thereof. He proposed a number of dates in the future as an alternative and requested the court to indulge him. Usually, the court would give a lawyer the benefit of doubts in such a situation. May’s lawyers would not like to question the integrity of the opponent directly, even though the excuse was a tendentious occurrence.

Today in court, Mr. Yul Edochie was present, but without his counsel, he court could nor hear any substantive matter. A new date has been set in June. We are all concerned about delays and protraction of this case. But we remain confident that justice will be done in due course by this court. As you know, several issues are involved: from the activities of the parties in the social media, to the welfare of the children, to the issues of marital properties, safety of May, and the final status of the marriage itself.

As we have done in the past, we urge all well-wishers and supporters to be patient. The legal process is very intricate and the best approach has to be meticulous and painstaking. Despite our concerns about delays, we are confident that May is fine and will remain so. There should be no cause for worries at this point. We also urge you to resist the temptation to believe things you read in the blogs. Most of the blogs have no idea what is going on, but will go to every extent to suggest otherwise. Thank you.”
