Emeka Ike Confesses Undying Love For Ex-Wife

Published

on

Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike who claims to have been blindsided by his divorce, insists that he loves his ex-wife, Emma and would take her back if only she confesses.
The actor made this revelation during an interview with the media, stressing that despite the fact that his wife was the one who asked for the divorce in the face of all his pleas, he still loves her.
When asked why he seems to have taken a long break from acting, Ike said, “I tried to restructure the man, Emeka Ike. Emeka Ike is a leader and as a leader, you need to appraise and reappraise your empire and achievements, so I have been appraising my constituency and I am happy that we are moving forward. At a point he relocated to Abuja from Lagos”.
The actor who recently relocated from Lagos to Abuja had this to say about his move: “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 Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) crisis to threaten my life and all that will be sorted out very soon by the police.
“I relocated to Abuja to avoid a situation where I would be walking on the streets of Lagos and a criminal would gun me down”.
“I used my discretion to stay away, while I watched from afar what was happening in Lagos, that was why that woman (his ex-wife) is no longer living with me. God knows I am not a wife beater, I don’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 would be unravelled soon”.
When asked about the truth behind the domestic violence accusations thrown at him by his ex-wife, he said. “Have you watched that one movie where the wife was saying “everything is alright between me and my husband, he takes care of me and provides all my needs”, that was the situation between my wife and I, if I didn’t know I would have blamed her sudden change of character on my enemies. I love her so much”.
“Why would you blackmail me by claiming that I was always beaten her up when I didn’t. To avoid the disturbing mess, I had to abandon my business and house in Lagos and find a new life in Abuja.”
Ike went on to add that he had not seen the divorce coming and he had not been prepared. “I wasn’t. I don’t even believe we are divorced and I cannot remarry again. I am a real Christian and Christians don’t divorce. I told the court that I’m not divorcing my wife but they went ahead and got an injunction against a high court order”.
“I must see to the end of this matter because they have put many children out there without a mother. She is in pain wherever she is right now because I know they are dealing with her. I learnt 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 behind, what is the extent of blackmail that brought her to this degrading level? The inspector general of police will be investigating into the matter very soon, while doing this, I have to stay away from Lagos because they could be after me”.
Recall that Emeka Ike once accused Pastor Chris Okotie of House Hold of God Church International Ministries of being the brain behind his marital crisis. He said”, the  guy who is confusing my wife attend this church. He is one of the elders of the church, it is a church arrangement on his feelings for Emma after all that has happened between them. Emeka expressed undying love for her while asking her to confess the truth as a condition for him to take her back.

The Paramount ruler of Emohua kingdom in Rivers State,  Ohna (Sir) Sergent Awuse, has called for peaceful celebrations of christmas and new year, as he enjoined the youths to be law abiding and shun violence during the festive period.
The first class traditional ruler made the call last Saturday, while preforming the Ohna Emohua burial rights in respect of late Ohna (Hon) Emmanuel A. Obinna at Mgbuitanwo in Emohua community,  amidst jubilation for a life well lived.
Ohna Awuse, the Olo IV, Nneweli Emohua XIII urged the people of the community to always uphold and showcase the age long culture and tradition of Emohua Clan. He stressed that their culture is their identity and way of life and a community without culture and tradition is like a sheep without Shepherd.
The monarch noted that late Ohna Emmanuel Obinna would be remembered for his role in promoting the ancient culture and tradition of Emohua. He stated that his demise had left a big vaccum in Emohua kingdom, but the legacies he left behind would live after him.
In his vote of thanks,  his successor and acting head of Mgbu Owhor community in Emohua, Chief V.C. Obinna, thanked the Ohna supreme council for the honour they gave to their departed colleague by giving him a befeating burial in line with the culture and tradition of Ohna Emohua, the highest traditional institution in Emohua kingdom. Which the late traditional ruler championed in his life time on earth.
Chief V.C Obinna maintained that apart from being a foremost traditionalist, he was also a devout Christian who contributed immensely to the growth of the Christian faith in Emohua community and beyond.
Also speaking at the well attended event,  the chief mourner, Dr Weli Obinna reiterated that his late father lived an upright life, those he left behind would take solace in God because their father and mentor lived a fulfilled life he came, he saw and he conquered to the glory of God and left the scene at the ripe age of 92.

Rivers Set For Yuletide Celebration Despite Odds

Published

on

As this year’s Christmas and New year celebrations beckon, The Tide investigations have revealed that most of the residents of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital and its environs are not enthusiastic about the Christmas and new year celebrations. Most of the people interviewed expressed the feelings of solemn and gloomy festive period due to the prevailing economic hardship in the country.
One of the respondents, Mr. Solomon Duru,  a civil servant resident at the D-Line axis of the city, complained of the rising cost of staple foods in the market, such as rice, beans, tomato, yam etc. which were sold at exubitant prices and  had made it extremely difficult to provide two square meals for his family of five, “It is life first before celebration,” he said.
Another respondent who sells garri at Mile One Market, Diobu , Port Harcourt,  Madam Dorathy Duke maintained that garri which used to be the poor man’s food has become the rich man’s food. According to her, a basin of garri that was sold for #3000.00 is now sold for between #7000.00 and #8000.00, while five cups of garri that used to be sold for #200.00 now cost #500.00.
“Even at the prevailing price today, garri has become a scarce commodity even when you succeed in getting it, there are no buyers , there is trouble in the country,  Nigeria has now become Ghana of those days when they ran to Nigeria to take refuge due to their poor economy , but today the reverse is the case, may God help us”,  she said.
A transporter in Abali Park, Mile1, Mr. Sunday Udo, lamented the lack of patronage due to the hike  in transport fares as a result of the unprecendented rise in petrol and other petrolum products. He stressed that even vulcanizers and mechanics are in trouble as patronage from car owners decrease every day due to poor economy.
It was the same woefull story when The Tide visited a supermarket attendant along Aba/ Port Harcourt Express Road who pleaded anonymity. He disclosed that it was no longer business as usuall as most of their customers had disappeared due to the increase in the price of goods. “We record poor sales daily to the extent that the management has decided to reduce the workforce, my brother, it is double wahala for dead body” according to Fela”,  he said.
However,  a mass communication student of the Rivers State University Port Harcourt,  Mr. Abel Dike, noted that Nigerians were used to suffering and smiling, so this year’s Christmas and New Year celebrations would come and go,  this year would not be different despite the sufferings. People would still enjoy themselves even with their last kobo.
“People will still go to catch fun with their loved ones at their favourite relaxation joints,  hangouts, cinemas, amusement parks and night clubs. Residential houses, churches and public places will also wear new looks with Christmas trees, lights and other decorations,  even communities are ready to mark their annual carnivals,  beach parties, cultural and masquerade dances as well as wrestling competitions   and other social activities to mark the festive period,  so I believe all is not lost despite the bad economy,” he said.
Meanwhile,  Pastor Silas Wosa of St. Pauls Anglican Church Diobu noted that Christian faithfulls all over the world would celebrate the Christmas. “Christmas is the biggest celebration and holiday every year,  because it celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of God who came to the world to redeem mankind” he stressed.
