"Christabel Goddy's suspension by Ibinabo is akin to jungle justice"

The Emeka Ike-led Actors Guild of Nigeria has reacted to suspension of Crystabel Goddy for fighting on set by the government of Ibinabo Fiberesima.

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

According to a statement released by the Actors Guild of Nigeria under Ibinabo Fiberesima's administration, Goddy was indefinitely suspended and ordered to stay away from all film sets.

The guild which is now led by Emeka Ike, has reacted to the suspension of Goddy by former AGN president, likening it to jungle justice.

An official statement signed by Femi Durojaiye, the national secretary to Emeka Ike’s faction of AGN, said: “Our attention has been drawn to the purported suspension of Miss Crystabel Goddy by the illegal government of Ibinabo Fiberesima, for having an altercation with a fellow actress.

“Not only is the purported suspension spurious as Miss Crystabel Goddy is not a card carrying member of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) but it is also a reckless decision by those drunken with power.

“Even if Miss Crystabel Goddy were a member of our Guild, there are set procedures for dealing with issues bothering on indiscipline. Miss Goddy never faced any disciplinary panel to hear her case to determine her guilt or otherwise.

“Her purported suspension by Ibinabo is akin to jungle justice, which is alien to Actors Guild of Nigeria. For the avoidance of doubt, Miss Crystabel Goddy is not under any suspension by Actors Guild of Nigeria, and therefore free to continue her career, as we rebuild our Guild to make it once more attractive to young talents.”
