Emeka Ike's wife Emma Ike has spoken more about the situation of her shaky marriage with the actor.
Speaking to THE NATION, the wife of the movie star said she has not been able to speak to her children for a while now. “The last time I wanted to speak with our children, it was my mother-in-law who picked the call and asked if I had read Exodus 21 which says that if I go, I shouldn't return.”
She also said that Emeka took her last two children from her during the period of her mother's burial in February. “He promised to bring them to me immediately I returned from my mother’s burial but he didn’t. He doesn’t allow me to speak with them anymore. They are now against me."
Emma disclosed that she had to leave their matrimonial home because of domestic violence. “If I was still with him, I may not survive. I was 19-year old when I met him and he was the one who deflowered me. I see no reason I shouldn't be treated with utmost respect. Due to physical torture, my health has been affected. There was even a time I thought I had breast cancer because I felt a lump on one part of my breast” she said.
Emeka Ike's wife also said the separation has affected their children adversely. ”I almost went mad when my first son told me on phone that if I truly loved them, I wouldn't have abandoned them. . Even my 7-year-old son whose day wouldn't be complete without seeing me said he doesn’t love me. I love my children. I miss my children. I never abandoned them. I am in pain. I really need my children. I am a good woman; I endured so many things as his wife.”
