King of Drama! Emeka Ike disrupts Actors Guild of Nigeria election, Guild official arrested

by Reuben Daba

The drama which has been going on in the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) for almost a year, continued on Thursday, as Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, who has vowed to sanitise the collapsed Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) again disrupted the Guild’s election held in Lagos.

Five months ago at the guild elections in Edo, the actor was again at the centre of the controversy as that election was disrupted. Emeka Ike is demanding that the guild holds off on elections until after his case in court has been settled.

The actor took some policemen who arrested the vice chairman of the BOT of the Guild, Emma Ogugua during the elections.  “Emma was whisked away to Zone 2 headquarters of the police force where he met with the AIG in charge of the zone. He was accompanied by Steve Eboh, who is contesting in the election as president.”

According to Emeka Ike, ‘I stormed the venue to arrest Emma Agugua because he was conducting an illegal election. I have a case in court against the leadership of the Guild, until the matter is determined, nobody has the right  to conduct any election under the law.”

Emma, according to a Vanguard source, later came back to the secretariat some minutes past 5pm. It was not clear whether the election continued or not.

Emeka Rollas, Steve Eboh, and Feberisima Ibinabo are contesting for the position of president.

  1. Emeka Ike, no law exist which stales elections into an office by virtue of a subsisting suit against its leadership. That office is held in perpetuity and from ur statement, your suit is against the leadership of AGN and not in anybody's personal capacity. Moreso, you never said if the court has granted an injunction restraining the conduct of the election as your mere suit in court cannot be sufficient enough to stop an election. Your actions are rather aimed at causing chaos and unrest in the country which you ought to be punish for for taking laws into your hands. This is strictly a civil case which excludes the police. You personally have no respect for the law or else, you would have followed due process of law. I advice you sheat your sword before you land yourself into trouble fighting others. Don't loose your respect if you still have any left anyway.
