The petition was filed against Maje Ayida back in March, 2016. She listed a number of reasons why she made the move. Chief among them were adultery, cruelty and irreconcilable differences. In it, she alleged that:
She had to leave their matrimonial home in November 2015 after she could no longer tolerate the continuous adulterous acts between Maje and Anita despite promises from Maje to stop. That Maje had some of his affairs in their matrimonial home while she was away at work.
She alleged that Maje made claims of not having money to take care of her or pay the bills in the house but was able to finance the birth of his child from Anita. She stated that Maje did not pay the rent on two occasions and as a result the landlord came to embarrass her.
She alleged that she lost a huge endorsement opportunity worth N20m with a telecoms company because of the negativity that followed the 2015 scandal. That she was treated with disdain and was never consulted for any business dealings whereas Maje was consulting with Anita.
She alleged that any slight complaint from her resulted in nagging and verbal abuse and the use of vulgar words even in front of their domestic staff. She alleges that Maje has repeatedly sent text messages to Anita Solomon inviting her to live with him.
