Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, has claimed that there have been several attempts to kill him since he broke up with his estranged wife.
The veteran actor told Punch that when the time was ripe, he would set the record straight concerning his divorce which was finalised earlier this year.
He said, “This matter with my ex-wife is not an important issue. There are more important things I’m concerned with right now and I wouldn’t want to lose focus.
“A time is coming when I would set the records straight about what really transpired between us.
“There have been two attempts to kill me and both times, I escaped unscathed. That’s part of the reason my wife left; she is running for her life.
“I know that some people are blackmailing her and it is the same set of people that leaked the news of our divorce to the media.
“Even before I got to court with my lawyer on the day judgment was delivered, the news was already on the Internet that my marriage had been dissolved.
“But the good thing is that I know the people behind this and I will talk at the right time.”
Ike also mentioned that he wouldn’t have been granted custody of the former couple’s children if he were violent.
“If it is true that I’m violent, why did the jury which comprised women grant me custody of our four young children? That should tell you something is not right”, he said.
