Emeka Ike Sparks A Major Talking Point On Violence In Marriages: ‘I Was A Victim’
Veteran Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike has sparked a major talking point on social media when he delved into the topic, domestic violence.
The talented actor, in a now-deleted post on Instagram revealed that he was once a victim of abuse in his marriage.
It would be recalled that the actor got separated from his wife, Suzanne Emma, in 2015 after she filed for a divorce, accusing her husband of physically and verbally abusing her throughout the duration of the marriage.
Since then, Emeka’s life has never been the same and he took a break from Nollywood.
However, they got officially divorced in 2017 and he proceeded to have a lowkey wedding with a South African model, Yolanda Pfeiffer.
Although the actor has since remarried, he recently revealed the effect of living with an abusive partner.
Sharing his findings on the effect of abuse in marriage, the 55-year-old actor stated that women now abuse men more lately which explains why men usually die first.
He also wondered why kidnappers’ wives and armed robbers’ wives are not crying out but just the rich and successful men alone.
According to him, he was a victim of abuse in his marriage and it was God that saved him. However, he didn’t disclose if he was referring to his first or second marriage.

“Pls, pls do your research well. Most women abuse men more lately. They don’t love again. Most of them marry you for your money and make your life miserable, if not kill you.See Also
I was a victim. Why are kidnappers and armed robbers wives not crying out? Why must it be very rich and successful men lately? Violent men are in the cover while this “kill and get rich” model spreads unrecognized.
Not saying there are no deadbeat men but the increase on the other gender manipulative edge is totally ignored. Why do men have to always die before women in marriage? Ask your father. Ask your grand father. That’s if they are still alive to tell you things.
Pls, pls lets stop encouraging this wicked, misleading and greedy women, with this mundane top. Na God save me.”
