“I Cannot Be Trading Words With A Common Street Boy Like Segun Arinze “-Actor Emeka Ike Blasts


Emeka in just few months is becoming really popular with his epic thoughts and expressions. The Popular actor is either in war of words with Politician Pastor Chris Okotie over the divorce issues with his wife or he will be found throwing shades at AGN President Ibinabo Fiberesima, Segun Arinze or Nollywood.

The two public figures,  Segun Arinze and Emeka Ike have been going head to head on each other for some time now and it seems the feud is not ready to melt any time soon. Arinze, made a statement that Emeka Ike should stop embarrassing the Actors Guild of Nigeria by parading himself as its president.

Segun’s words thus:

 ‘Emeka should grow up. As far as I am concerned, Ibinabo Fiberesima is the bonafide president. Even in the recent judgement that came out recently telling us to return to the status quo, what does it mean? We were told to go back to the way we were. There was no time Emeka Ike was pronounced the president of AGN. Let him bring out the copy of
the judgement and show us if he is man enough. He should wake up and stop embarrassing the guild.”

Emeka Ike however did not digest it well as he lavished words on Segun Arinze in an interview with Saturday Beats  calling him an illiterate who should have been in jail by now.  He said:

“I heard Segun Arinze was interviewed and he said so many things about me and nobody asked me for my own side. I don’t think it was a balanced report. Segun Arinze did not say anything meaningful, he was just cursing himself. That is not how to handle legal matters.

In legal matters, we take things from the law’s point of view. Segun that is talking to the journalist is supposed to be behind bars because he committed a crime that should have sent him to jail. There was an order that he violated by bringing in Ibinabo as the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria. I have been saying this since. That is why Ibinabo’s tenure was called ‘contentious.’

Why should we the educated people allow market people to talk? I am a very cerebral person and I don’t deal with men who cannot read and do not understand the legalities of the paper they have in their hand. I cannot be trading words with a common street boy because if you did not go to school, you cannot understand some legal issues. So, he cannot assess the judgement of the court of law.”

Meanwhile, the Actor debunked rumours to have settled issues with his wife as stated last week. Ike claims not to know exactly where such a report will emanate from because his wife did not come to their home to beg him as they are still in the process of reconciliation.

“I don’t know who put up the post. I don’t know if she was the one that sponsored the post or some of her friends. I am trying to know the source because those pictures were taken when we went on holidays in Florida. They were taken as far back as 2010. I don’t know why someone would just wake up and cook up some story from his laptop.

I have been quiet since the report came out because I do not know where it emanated from. I don’t know if it is coming from her and maybe she is trying to make a soft landing. I just kept quiet and I have been very objective on the matter. We are not back together but we are making moves to see if things can work out,” he concluded
