In an exclusive phone chat with a Nollywood insider, Emeka Ike said:
“I should not be assumed to be happy with the present travail of Ibinabo Fiberesima. We are in court on the matter of our guild, the Actors Guild of Nigeria, not on the issue of death or motor accident. I don’t wish jail for her.
Emeka Ike further said Ibinabo has been his impersonator since she was sacked by a Federal High Court in Abuja.
“Ibinabo has been impersonating to be the president. I am the president. I only want her to vacate the office. If she has a case and jailed for it, it has nothing to do with me.” – Emeka Ike added
This is what Don Pedro Aganbi, the factional chairman of the Actors Guild of Nigeria said on Ibinabo’s jail term:
‘nobody would be glad over such even if the person is your enemy. Mind you, our fight is only about the Actors Guild not about life and death. I don’t also think Emeka Ike would go dancing over Ibinabo’s present faith. All we wanted was that she leaves the office not by going to jail.
Friends of Ibinabo claimed Emeka Ike is the force behind Ibinabo’s imprisonment.
According to the story making rounds among Nollywood stars, Emeka Ike reportedly fueled the recent murder charges brought against Ibinabo after an article he wrote anonymously about Justice for Dr Suraj Giwa in one of the National Dailies went viral.
Lagos State Government’s official Doctor, Suraj Giwa died after drunk Ibinabo crushed him with her car over 10 years ago.
