Let’s get you up to speed, just in case you have not been following the divorce mess of Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike and wife, Suzanne Ike.
Suzanne has asked for a divorce and the case is still pending in court, however, Emeka Ike doesn’t want to let her go, and he’s now blaming Pastor Chris Okotie, of being behind his wife’s demand to walk out of the marriage.
Now that you have a basic background, here are 5 things you need to know about the issue;
1. Suzanne Ike wants out of the marriage
“Each time we fight, he calls me a witch saying whenever he intends to start a project and he informs me it eventually fails. He also said if he hadn’t married me, I would have become a prostitute,” Mrs Ike said.
“Since I left, he doesn’t allow me to speak with our first two children, asking me to come home if I really want to see them. Even when I was in with him, he leaves home for months on the pretext of different appointments. I can’t face all this anymore. I need help
2. Emeka Ike believes his wife is under a spell
I am pretty sure my wife is acting confused; she is acting as if she is under a spell, which is psychological and then she is acting under blackmail.
“There was a time I accused her of bringing men to my house. I mean, which woman will wake her husband up in the middle of the night and said to him, share your property I want to get my share now from what you have? Tell me, which woman will do that if not acting under a spell?
3. Suzanne accuses Emeka of domestic abuse
It was when my husband beat me mercilessly I believed that people truly saw stars whenever they were unconscious. It was my brother who took me to the hospital where I spent two months. There was also a day I was feeding our last child with tea, my husband, out of anger took the tea and poured it on my head.”
4. Emeka Ike blames Pastor Chris Okotie for stoking the fire of his marital crisis
Pastor Chris Okotie just absolved my wife into his church without making any effort to get in touch with me. If as a pastor, your church member is having issue with her husband, and you failed to do anything to resolve it, what kind of pastor are you? When I called him, he refused to pick my call.
He also failed to react to a text message I sent to him. Is that a man of God? Even, if you have a police case, they will make effort to hear from you before taking a position, not to talk of the church.
5. Emeka Ike desperately wants to work things out with Suzanne
“When we went to court, I told my wife that I’m interested in amicable settlement of the matter, and that I still want her back. But she refused. Even, if you don’t want me, what of your children, I asked her and she still would not listen to me.
I want the whole world to know because there is a lot of misinformation out there. The lawyer which Okotie hired for my wife is also frustrating every attempt I make to resolve the matter peacefully.”
