Judicial Authorities Governing the Settlement of Properties Among Parties to a Divorce Case

The case of Eke v. Eke (1993) 1 NWLR (Pt. 268) 506 highlighted the importance of considering the contributions of the parties during the marriage in the division of properties. The Court emphasized that non-financial contributions, such as homemaking and child-rearing, should be recognized and taken into account when determining the distribution of assets.
