There is a current tug of war going on in the AGN — Actors Guild of Nigeria.
Sources say that the AGN Board of Trustees have come out to say that veteran actor Emeka Ike can’t be their president and that Emeka has ceased to be a member of Guild since 2009.
The Board of Trustees chairman, Prince Ifeanyi Dike said Emeka’s intention was made clear when they published a disclaimer on him in a Newspaper.
According to Ifeanyi: –
“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.”
