Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, has accused the founder
and head pastor of Household of God Church, Pastor
Chris Okotie, of being behind the plot to destroy his
marriage at all cost.
Emeka Ike, in a statement, said he was crying out
because of the “desperate desperation” of Okotie to
destroy his home.
The feud between the actor and his wife, Suzanne, had
degenerated almost beyond resolution, with the wife
filing a divorce suit before a Customary Court in Lagos.
Emeka Ike said he was compelled to alert the whole
world of the “devil” behind the plot to destroy his home,
after all efforts to beg his wife to drop the divorce bid
The actor accused Okotie of hiring a Senior Advocate of
Nigeria (SAN) for his wife just for the purpose of
destroying his home.
He alleged that Okotie gave his wife about N500, 000 for
her mother’s burial and also bought her a blackberry
Emeke Ike further said every Sunday, Okotie would call
his wife out in church with other single women and ask
that gifts should be given to them.
He further alleged that Okotie with another man in the
church helped his wife to secure a job without his
The man in question, Emeka Ike alleged, recently had
issues in his marriage over a love message which
Suzanne sent to him.
According to the statement, Emeka Ike said:
“I want people to look into this issue critically.
I’ve never beaten this woman in my life. When
she ran out of home, I called my pastor and
they took us for counselling. For one week, I
was begging her every day; I would go home
alone and she would go home alone as well.
“At a point, pastor asked us to write five
things we like and dislike about each other.
The pastor said that maybe we could work it
out. I wrote mine, she wrote hers and she
never said there that I used to beat her. I still
have that document with me. She gave me
what she wrote and I gave her what I wrote. If
I used to beat her, she could not have left it
out from that then. Any man that beats a
woman is a coward. I know that someone
somewhere must have done something to her.
How can I beat a woman I adore so much? I
love my family and this is very unfortunate.
Her children have been begging her to come
home, and she has refused.
“I am pretty sure my wife is acting confused;
she is acting as if she is under a spell, which is
psychological and then she is acting under
“There was a time I accused her of bringing
men to my house. I mean, which woman will
wake her husband up in the middle of the
night and said to him, share your property I
want to get my share now from what you
have? Tell me, which woman will do that if not
acting under a spell?
“There was a time I travelled and she closed
down my school and sent all the students
away. So, there is a lot to it, other than the
allegation of battery against me and I want
the whole world to know. My name is precious
to me and I don’t want anything to drag it in
“Pastor Chris Okotie just absolved my wife
into his church without making any effort to
get in touch with me. If as a pastor, your
church member is having issue with her
husband, and you failed to do anything to
resolve it, what kind of pastor are you? When
I called him, he refused to pick my call. He
also failed to react to a text message I sent to
him. Is that a man of God? Even, if you have a
police case, they will make effort to hear from
you before taking a position, not to talk of the
“When we went to court, I told my wife that
I’m interested in amicable settlement of the
matter, and that I still want her back. But she
refused. Even, if you don’t want me, what of
your children, I asked her and she still would
not listen to me. I want the whole world to
know because there is a lot of misinformation
out there. The lawyer which Okotie hired for
my wife is also frustrating every attempt I
make to resolve the matter peacefully,” he
