Nollywood actress, Motilola Adekunle has announced that her marriage is over.
The Ondo-born actress made the announcement on her social media accounts on Monday evening.
The filmmaker met her husband during her service year in Kaduna in 2008/2009.
Motilola while making the announcement said she had to publicly address her fans because of the rumours and speculations.
Sharing a picture of herself and her estranged husband, Motilola wrote, “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. Difficult? Absolutely. 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. Motilola Adekunle.”
