Prof Emmanuel Rotimi Sadiku applied for summary judgment in order to evict his former wife, Ms Grace Jumai Sadiku, from a house registered in his name. Her defence was that the parties were previously married in community of property and that she therefore was the co-owner of the immovable property (par 1). Van Rooyen AJ found that both parties were domiciled in Nigeria at the time of their marriage. As such, Nigerian law applied to the proprietary consequences of the marriage (par 9-10).
