Court Bars Husband From Talking To Wife For Two Weeks In Ekiti

In a recent court session in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, a 43-year-old individual, Chibike Nwakedi, received a directive to cease all communication with his spouse, Blessing, pending their next court appearance.

This order, issued by Chief Magistrate Dolamu Babalogbon, prohibits any direct or telephonic contact between the two parties, allowing communication solely through legal representation.

The case unfolded when police prosecutor Inspector Sodiq Adeniyi presented allegations of assault against Mr. Nwakedi, accusing him of causing injury to his wife’s leg.

This act, deemed as potentially disruptive to public peace, led to charges under specific sections of the Ekiti State Criminal Law.

In defense, Barrister Gbenga Ariyibi, representing Mr. Nwakedi, requested bail, assuring the court of his client’s compliance and ability to present reliable sureties.

Acknowledging the plea, Chief Magistrate Babalogbon set the bail at N50,000 with two sureties and scheduled the hearing for March 28. This case highlights the legal system’s efforts to address domestic disputes and ensure the safety of all parties involved.
