In February 2016, Nollywood actress  Christabel Goddy was suspended for allegedly biting off flesh from co-actress, Princess Chineke's thigh.

Following the fight, Goddy was suspended by the then president of  the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima.

The suspension was lifted by the current AGN president, Emeka Ike, who likened the ban to jungle justice.

The actress was banned for allegedly biting off the skin of Princess Chineke at an hotel room they were sharing.

 

Goddy recently opened up on the controversial incident in an interview with Punch newspaper.

According to the actress, nobody heard her side of the story before dubbing her a cannibal, and placing a ban on her.

“I am not a cannibal; I have never eaten a human flesh in my life. I feel sad when I read that they call me a cannibal but I am a very strong person. If you are innocent of something, with time you would be vindicated. I am happy that people who have had to relate with me know that I am a peace-loving person,” she said.

According to her, God is punishing Ibinabo for passing wrong judgement on her.

“My only regret is that I indulged her and I am not proud of it. But then with my age and the little number of years I have spent in the industry, I should be excused. Politicians fight every day, so I don’t see why I should be buried. I did not kill anybody. Ibinabo was accused of killing somebody and she was walking on the street, bragging before the law caught up with her. I believe that it is because she passed a wrong judgement against me that God is punishing her. Her ban against me was flimsy and uncalled for even though it has been lifted by Emeka Ike," she said.
