‘I cried everyday when my wife left me’ – Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike
Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike is still finding it difficult to believe he’s no longer married to his wife, Suzanne Emma.
Emma had on July 13, 2015, approached the court to dissolve the marriage, accusing her former husband of physically and verbally abusing her throughout the duration of their marriage.
When asked about why he relocated from Lagos to Abuja, he said, ‘I felt that my life was seriously threatened in Lagos. I have said it before that I am going to arrest some people very soon. In fact, some people took advantage of the AGN crisis to threaten my life and all that will be sorted out very soon by the police.’
‘That was why that woman (his ex wife) is no longer living with me. God knows I am not a wife beater. I didn’t touch her and my children testified to that in court. I don’t know what came over her and who used her to blackmail me. But all that will be unravelled soon.’
I learnt that she was beaten black and blue by one wife snatcher sometime ago, beside Mobil Petrol Station on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. My own wife beaten up like a common criminal! I want to know what has gone wrong with my wife, I want to know the devil that is behind this.
On how he felt watching his walk out of her marriage?: ‘It’s the most painful part of my life. I cried for 24 hours every day for three to four years . I was just asking myself what is happening to me.
You know, in blackmail, you will not know what is going on because somebody is playing the game’ “Love never dies. Real love doesn’t die, forget what we are talking about. The Bible says that “love covers multitude of sin.” She’s the mother of my children.
She was nobody when I met her, she never knew her father.
I built a house for her family in Lagos and also in Isoko. I trained her up to the master’s degree level. I gave her the exposure she needed in life. There are thousands of pretty girls who would want to marry me the first week we got divorced. But I am a gentleman, it is not about marriage for me now, it’s about doing the right thing.”
