Nollywood actor and President of the of Actors Guild of Nigeria,
Emeka Ike has disclosed that there have been threats to his life which he escaped twice unscathed. The actor who said that a threat to his life is part of the reasons his ex-wife, Suzanne, who he was married to for 17 years opted for a divorce.
He told Sunday Scoop:
This matter with my ex-wife is not an important issue. There are more important things I’m concerned with right now and I wouldn’t want to lose focus. A time is coming when I would set the records straight about what really transpired between us. There have been two attempts to kill me and both times, I escaped unscathed.
That’s part of the reason my wife left; she is running for her life. I know that some people are blackmailing her. It is the same set of people that leaked the news of our divorce to the media. Even before I got to court with my lawyer on the day judgment was delivered, the news was already on the Internet that my marriage had been dissolved. But the good thing is that I know the people behind this and I will talk at the right time.
If it is true that I’m violent, why did the jury which comprised women grant me custody of our four young children? That should tell you something is not right.
