Nollywood News: Just like the saying goes: ‘A story has two sides’. Well, popular Nollywood actor – Emeka Ike, has come out to rebut prior reports that she beats up her wife and mother of 4 children.
Over the weekend, Emeka Ike reportedly took to social media to plead his estranged wife to come back home. According to initial reports, Emeka’s wife – Suzanne (aka, Emma) accused him about two weeks ago of panel-beating her, which initiated her filing for divorce in a Lagos court. But now, Emeka Ike says the accusations were all erroneous.
According to reports, Emeka posted the following via his Facebook Page:
Emeka said; “I learnt about my wife’s complaint on the media, when someone called my attention to it. About her filling for divorce, well, no letter has been tendered to me by any court whatsoever, so I assume it’s just a vague rumour. I’m happily married with four lovely children. I call my marriage my institution and I don’t joke with it. My children are my assets, I don’t mess with them or their mother for any reason because they have to be rightly protected.”
“I love and adore my wife so much and the last thing I would think of is raise my hands on her,” Ike continued. “It is normal for families to have one dispute or incongruity every now and then. If my wife wants to leave me, she should have just said it is on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and not that I am a wife beater. It would mean that she is trying to get unnecessary sympathy and I don’t think she would say such.”
“If she says I am a wife beater, the children would have at least for once, witnessed it. I have a 14-year-old boy who is grown physically and mentally, you can ask him if I have ever beaten his mother or rather, they should go to my former residence in Lagos to ask my neighbors if they ever heard that I beat my wife. Never in my life have I raised my hand to hit my wife,” he added.
DailyPost NG revealed that Emeka Ike went further to say that when his wife starts nagging like women normally do, he would either spend time with the kids more, or pick up his car keys and leave the house until the atmosphere is serene enough ”because women could nag so much that you will be left with no option but to hit them, but I swear on everything I’ve got, I have never and will never assault my wife in any manner,” he emphasized.
“When I showed my children what was on the internet, they were sad and said that it was a lie because I don’t beat their mother. I am a father of four children and I must protect them first before I even protect myself. That is why I would never say any bad thing about their mother. God would judge us all in life so I am very careful the things I do or say, especially with my family.”
Emeka concluded: “Anyone who sees my wife should tell her to please come back to us. I miss her so much and the kids too.”
Fellow Nollywood Community members, who do you think is lying? Emeka Ike or his wife, Emma Ike? His wife says he beats her up and calls her a prostitute. But Emeka says he loves her dearly and wants her to return home.
