Contrary to popular opinion that Emeka Ike was made the AGN by a recent court ruling, the Board of Trustees of the Actors Guild of Nigeria have denied it. While addressing journalists at a press conference today,the chairman,Prince Ifeanyi Dike said Emeka Ike ceased to be a member of the guild since 2009. Hear him:
“We have decided to talk to the press concerning what have been dished out by Emeka Ike concerning his litigation with the members of the Board of Trustees of the Actors Guild of Nigeria. Emeka Ike has been telling the world that he has won his case against the Board of Trustees of the guild, and that he has been declared the President of the body.
We need to correct this falsehood deliberately being peddled around obviously for political gains of the bearer of the false information.”“
The truth is that Emeka Ike did not get any judgment or victory against members of the Board of Trustees of the Actors Guild of Nigeria. His case is suit No FHC/L/CS/365/2011 and it is still pending before Honourable Justice Tsoho of the Federal High Court Lagos.
It has been adjourned to Thursday April 16, 2015 for hearing of the objection filed by Emeka Ike against the appearance of our new counsel in the matter. If his case is still pending before the court, how can the same court declare him to be the President without deciding the matter finally?This is the central issue for resolution in that case.”
