Emeka Ike Puts Ibinabo Fiberesima on Blast , Says AGN isn't Running a Prostitution Cartel.


Controversial Nollywood actor and president of the Actors 

Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Emeka Ike, has accused his colleague 

and former president of the guild, Ibinabo Fiberesima of achieving 

nothing while in power.

He said Ms Fiberesima selfishly took the leadership of the guild 

like a personal business and sidelined people who were supposed 

to be in the picture.

In an interview with Television Continental, TVC, the Nollywood ‘play boy’, 

who spoke on his pedigree in the Entertainment Industry, said, “I have 

gotten awards severally for being one of the builders of Nollywood. 

We did what we had to do as young people because we got very 

excited about it. It became a big deal and right now, everybody is 

celebrating it. We were part of the people that donated our time, 

efforts to create the model, Nollywood.”

The actor, while speaking on the crisis in the movie industry, said,

 “Right now, there is no crisis in Nollywood. If I go to court with 

you and there is a judgment and a resolution, then the crisis has ended. 

A court of competent jurisdiction, a High Court in Nigeria had resolved 

the issue, told the parties that it’s wrong, that it had been dissolved, fired.
“Their appeal was refused in the High court because it was a declarative 


“So, if you say crisis, you need to know the crisis has been 

logically and legally resolved, legitimately settled.

“Ibinabo was ordered to pack out, give receipts, results and everything 

to designated authority. So, when you say crisis, that is a media bluff. 

They keep going to the media to say there is problem in AGN so they can 

have their way but I tell you this, there is no crisis.

“Having been designated, we are now trying to put things together.

“This is not about Ibinabo’s manslaughter case. But you know, 

someone who has such a huge case is not fit to rule our people. 

That is not good for our young people.

“She was more interested in putting the wrong people in power like 

Segun Arinze, who does not even have a BSc and is 

not fit to be in power in AGN.

“You put some money on the table and say ‘go and abuse 

Emeka’ and that’s it; they go!

“Ibinabo didn’t want to leave power. She was fighting

 Ejike Asiegbu. She told everybody the board of trustees owns 

the AGN. Who owns Nigeria Bar Association, NBA?” He quizzed.

“So much illiteracy and huge ignorance and you use all of this 

impunity and walk into locations and order my people around.

“You order them to go to places like parastatals, government 

houses and you ask them to bring money for the AGN. 

It is true the AGN needs money to run but then it has to go through proper 

channeling, like the house coming up with what it needs.

“We then go as a body and present our demands. 

Not by carrying our beautiful faces and go to present proposals. 

That’s dumb because the AGN is not running a prostitution 

cartel. We are serious minded actors who pay our dues.

“Ibinabo never carried the industry along; she only did her thing 

with just a few powerful people who claimed ownership of AGN. 

Am I supposed to just keep quiet on that?

“I will not keep quiet and let few people empower few 

people and let some multinational company empower a few 

people to oppress everybody,” the actor added.
