Emeka Ike narrates how Suzanne Emma destroyed his life
Before meeting his new wife, Emeka Ike had to endure hell at the hands of his ex-wife.
While featuring as a guest on Channels Television programme Rubbin’ Minds, hosted by Hero Daniels, Ike said his ex-wife’s assault allegations made him lose properties worth millions of naira.
He said he did not come out to clear the air over the domestic violence allegations against him because the people “bullying” him were on social media.
“I didn’t come on the internet space to clarify the allegations against me because it’s difficult to clarify because the same people that were bullying me on the internet, they were still there. They are gonna say, ‘Don’t mind him. He is still missing her. Move on.’ he said.
“And if you’re not prepared to handle it, you will be crushed.
“My secondary school, St. Nicholas College, on CMD road, Magodo, was shut down. Over N480 million investment that year was shut down. And all I heard was constant battery.
“I was like, ‘I don’t beat this lady. What’s going on? Babe, what’s going on? They said I beat you, do I?’
And she [my ex-wife] said, ‘No. But you’re a star, you know, they can always manipulate things and all that.’
“So, I was gullible until I discovered that she was actually the one behind all this whole thing. Some ladies are too desperate for marriage legally. And she actually told me one time that I am not the marriage type. And I didn’t understand it. So, the young men need to know that there are plenty ladies that are not the marriage type lately.”
He said he sponsored his ex-wife’s higher education but didn’t know that he wasn’t “loved in return.”
“She [my ex-wife] 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 Ike added he believes his ex-wife was being blackmailed by some unscruplous elements to destroy his life.

One comment wrote: “I was NOT shocked watching Emeka Ike’s interview as he finally gave his own detailed side of the story about his failed marriage after over 10yrs. Most men can relate to his silence all along or his choosing NOT to speak in detail until now. Let me say this for the first time publicly; I don’t think men should look for love in women when looking for a lifetime partner.
“Look for and gauge the depth of respect first. Secondly, background and character. Forget “love”. If you are already very successful before looking for a woman to marry, love should be entirely ruled out.
“It’s near impossible for an already successful man to find a woman who loves him. At a certain status, it would be naive to believe any “I love you”. You see, besides a Mother’s love for her Son, there are NOT a lot of modern women on earth capable of loving a man as a husband. I don’t mean the “love” that’s easily thrown around anyhow,”
