Nollywood actress, Motilola Adekunle, in a recent Instagram post has told the world that her marital union has come to an end on amicable terms.
The actress met her husband during her mandatory National Youth Service Corps year in Kaduna in 2008/2009.
They got married and welcomed two children thereafter.
The movie star also stated that she is a firm believer in the institution of marriage.
However, she explained that her decision to share the private matter is a consequence of her belief in being transparent and to quell rumours.
Adekunle’s post read: “It feels very odd that I have to share this kind of news with everyone as I am a staunch believer in the marriage institution, but the decision to share is a consequence of my believe in being transparent and not giving room to rumours or unverified speculations.
“After ….. years of marriage, we have come to the hard but pragmatic realisation and conclusion that we are much better apart.
“Let me dispel any rumors that might emerge about the split.
“It’s very simple: It just didn’t work out.
“There is no anger involved.
“But it is the best decision in the circumstances.
“Let me reiterate that we are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their, and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.
“We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.
“Thanks for your understanding and I seek your continuing prayers for me in this period.
“I would also appreciate if there would be no calls, would respond to messages as soon as I can…pls understand the sensitivity of this situation… God bless you
