Nollywood actress Lilian Esoro and Triple MG owner, Ubi Franklin have allegedly been denied divorce by a Federal High Court sitting in Ikeja.
Reports, as seen behind the viral trend on Twitter on Tuesday, cites that the court stated their request for divorce lacks strong grounds as to be taken seriously and advised them to go and work on their marriage. The judge also said the explanation given by the couple for seeking a divorce is ‘invalid’.
Despite sharing a son, Jayden, the duo who tied the knot in an elaborate wedding in November 2015 got separated a year later.
Here’s how some Nigerians reacted to the ruling on Twitter:
Lilian Esoro and Ubi Franklin: Your honour we’re tired of this marriage
Judge: Una go die there😂😂
