How my ex-wife made me lose access to kids over alleged assault – Emeka Ike

Actor Emeka Ike has accused his ex-wife Suzanne of making him lose access to his kids and property because she claimed he assaulted her.

The actor disclosed this in a recent interview with Channel Television of the Rubbin Minds show where he also said his school was shut down and he lost his property because of the allegation.

He claimed that when the reports of him assaulting his wife made rounds, he had talked to her and she had denied it, without knowing that she was the one behind the news.

Emeka claimed that his marital drama led him into depression, which drove him to hide from the spotlight because he was ashamed.

He said: “It is difficult to clarify things online cause the same people that bully you on the internet are still there and would make you feel otherwise when you speak up. If you aren’t prepared to handle it you will be crushed.

“My secondary school, Saint Nicholas Collage on CMD Road, Magodo was shut down, over N480million investment was shut down and all I heard was “constant battery”. I was even asking my wife at that time if I beat her and she said since I am a star, people are manipulating things.

“I felt I was gullible until I realized she was actually the one behind it. Some ladies are too desperate for a marriage lately and she actually told me that she was not the marriage type, but I didn’t understand it. But the young men need to know that there are plenty of ladies who aren’t the marriage type.

“I was told to go home, my school was shut down, and my marriage was shut down. I came back from America to nothing, my house had been moved. Everything I got has Emeka Ike was gone”.

The 56-year-old said he sponsored his ex-wife’s higher education but he did not know that he was not “loved in return.”

The actor said he and his family members begged his ex-wife not to divorce him, but she was adamant.

“She went to divorce herself. She said, ‘Judge, please, divorce me, I want to go.’ I said, ‘Kilode? Where are you going?’ I was on my knees. Felix Duke was on his knees. My sisters were on their knees in court. Even the people that came with my ex-wife to court were on their knees. They said, ‘Are you okay? What’s wrong with you?’ We didn’t understand what was going on in her psychology,” he recalled.

Emeka said he believed his ex-wife was blackmailed by some “gunmen” she was involved with into divorcing him. He also stated that he lost access to his kids as a result of the controversy.

In March 2017, a Lagos Island Customary Court dissolved Emeka Ike’s 17 year-old-marriage to Suzanne Emma.

The court granted Emeka custody of the four children but ordered that Suzanne should be granted unhindered access to them.

Suzanne in the petition filed before the court accused Emeka of incessant beating, molestation, and torture, which she said she could no longer endure.

But Emeka in his response denied beating, molesting, or torturing his wife.

Emeka Ike married his South African wife, Yolanda Pfeiffer in a low-key wedding early in 2019.

The actor and his new wife welcomed a baby girl in October 2019 in a German hospital.
