Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, is fighting hard to save his marriage, and Pastor Chris Okotie now appears to be in the center of the crisis between him and wife, Suzanne.
While his wife, Suzanne, is seeking for a divorce, Emeka Ike, has been pleading and making entreaties to get her to come back home.
Although the case is still pending in court, the Nollywood actor has engaged head pastor of Household of God Church, Chris Okotie, in a verbal warfare.
Emeka Ike accuses Okotie of puppeteering his wife, to insist on walking out on their marriage.
Okotie had responded by saying that he will not dignify Emeka Ike with a response.
In reaction, the actor told TheCable, that Okotie is an anti-christ, not a pastor.
He was quoted to have said;
“I think his (Okotie’s) comment is a clear indication that he lacked the evidence to fault my allegation. Is Pastor Okotie well-known and popular as I am? How can he say he will not dignify me with a response?
“His comment actually confirmed my suspicion that my wife is being manipulated either through blackmail or spiritual enchantment to say she was opting out of her marriage after 12 years.”
“For instance, at the last proceeding on the divorce suit, my wife said it in the open court that she was willing to abandon her four children and go out of the marriage. Which woman will say she was abandoning her four children if not under a spell? It is clear to me that Okotie is not a pastor but an anti-christ.”
“I want people to look into this issue critically. I’ve never beaten this woman in my life. When she ran out of home, I called my pastor and they took us for counselling. For one week, I was begging her every day; I would go home alone and she would go home alone as well.”
“At a point, pastor asked us to write five things we like and dislike about each other. The pastor said that maybe we could work it out. I wrote mine, she wrote hers and she never said there that I used to beat her. I still have that document with me. She gave me what she wrote and I gave her what I wrote. If I used to beat her, she could not have left it out from that then. Any man that beats a woman is a coward.”
I know that someone somewhere must have done something to her. How can I beat a woman I adore so much? I love my family and this is very unfortunate. Her children have been begging her to come home, and she has refused.”
