Recently, the long legal battle between, Emeka Ike and actress, Ibinabo Fiberesima over who is the authentic president of the Actors Guild Of Nigeria (AGN), was brought to an end.
Emeka who led the one faction has spoken out on why he chose peace pointing that he never held anything personal again Ibinabo Fiberesima.
There has to be peace before we can have an election and chart a course for the association. I didn’t have anything personal against Ibinabo; it was all about legal issues.
But if we must move forward, we must resolve all the issues, and that is what happened recently. I and Ibinabo have decided to put an end to the crisis and let things go on the way it should be.”
Emeka Ike aslo reacted to the news that the Actors Guild Of Nigeria (AGN), already has a new president in the person of Emeka Rollas, the role interpreter said
“It is unfortunate that while we are trying to move the association forward, there are some people with other sinister interests and they would be exposed soon. We are just waiting for them to make a public appearance and identify themselves as leaders of AGN, then we would show them what legality means. We would be revealing our next course of action soon, but right now, all I can say is that I and Ibinabo have come together.”
Continuing, he said, “There are people who are trying to usurp and hijack the industry and they would do anything to make sure that there is no peace. So now that Ibinabo and I have come together, they are trying to put spanner in the works.
Who were the people that got the N3bn that was shared in the industry recently? I didn’t send representatives to any meeting and Ibinabo only sent seven people.

Yet, nobody is asking questions. That should tell you that someone is playing games and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission needs to be involved. If you want to know who shared the money, go to the Bank of Industry and ask them who recommended the people that got the money.
How can money be coming into an industry, yet the relevant associations are not getting anything; rather the money is going to certain individuals.”
Emeka also stated that his acting days are not over yet. He said, “I still featured in some movies in Asaba recently.”
