July 18, 2015 – Emeka Ike: “My Wife Has Abandoned Our Children & Has Packed Out Of Her Matrimonial Home”, AGN President Begs Nagging Wife To Come Back Home
Nollywood actor Emeka Ike who initially denied reports that his wife, Suzanne Rero Emmanuella has filed for divorce has finally come open.
In an exclusive chat with Punch, Emeka Ike admitted that his wife and the mother of his four children has moved out of her matrimonial home over domestic violence allegations.
The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, in an emotional tone told Punch that he adores his wife and she is probably using that against him. He appealed to his wife to come back home because the children are missing her.
“If my wife says I am a wife beater, the children would have witnessed such. I have a 14-year-old boy who is grown and has moustache now, you can ask him if I have ever beaten his mother. Never in my life have I raised my hand to beat my wife. I adore that woman and I love her a lot.
If she wants to use my love against me, no problem and if people do not believe me, they should go to my former residence in Lagos to ask my neighbours if they ever heard that I beat my wife. Rather when my wife starts making noise like women normally do, I use that period to train my children. I would ask my children like this, ‘what do you do when a woman begins to nag at home?’ They would tell you that the next thing to do is pick your car keys and drive off.
That is the normal training I give my sons so that they would never beat their wives. If my wife wants to leave me, she should have just said that it is due to irreconcilable differences and not that I am a wife beater. It would mean that she is trying to get unnecessary sympathy and I don’t think she would say such. When I showed my children what was on the internet, they were sad and said that it was a lie because I don’t beat their mother.
I am a father of four children and I must protect them first before I even protect myself. That is why I would never say any bad thing about their mother. God would judge us all in life. Anyone who sees my wife should tell her to come back home to her children because they need her,” .
