Veteran Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike has opened up once again about his failed marriage to his ex-wife, Suzanne whom he claimed to have suffered both domestic and emotional violence from.
Recalling how their marriage was, Emeka disclosed that his ex wife favourite TV program was “women who killed their husbands.”
The father of four who was recently rumoured to have found love again with a South African lady revealed this in a recent interview with Punching where he also disclosed his reason for not signing the divorce papers.
The reason why I have not signed the divorce papers is because of the blackmail involved and my name that has been tarnished. She is spoiling my name; I would fight to clear myself of being called a wife beater with everything I have.
My children do not want to see their mother. When my daughter heard she would be taken to Lagos to be with her mother, she was crying profusely. The children are scared of her.
If you threaten our daughter that she would go to Lagos to meet her mother, she would cry and do everything you want her to do in the house just because she doesn’t want to see her.
The children are really irritated by their mother. I have a lot of evidence of child abuse against her but I am waiting for the right time to arrest her. Even in court, her son testified against her.
She has tried to use the press against me by saying that I am a wife beater but I have never touched her in my life. Her best TV station is the criminal investigation channel; she stays up till 4am to watch the channel for over five years.
She watched the programmes about women who killed their husbands, children, relatives. How would you wake up by 4am and not see your wife on the bed only to go downstairs and see her watching that station as if she is taking notes.
I had to ask her if she wanted to kill somebody. This is a woman whom I brought out of a one room apartment she was living with her mother, but I built a two-bedroomed apartment for them.
I went to her village and built a three-bedroomed apartment for her. I trained her from secondary school to Master’s degree level. Is this how she is supposed to pay me back?
No one is looking at all this but they would go online to say that I am bitter. Some men suffer like me but they died for nothing. That is why I dedicated my award to all the men that lost their lives to the women they loved.
