Mr Emmanuel accused his estranged wife of being hot-tempered.
In the petition, Mr Emmanuel also accused his estranged wife of abandonment.
The petitioner said he married the woman in 2007, and they got separated in 2017 because of her quarrelsome behaviour.

In their judgment, presiding officials Ghazali Adam and Hyacinth Dolnanan granted the application for divorce and awarded custody of their only child to Mr Emmanuel.Read More
