Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike who has vowed to sanitise the collapsed Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) on Thursday waded the big stick again as he disrupted the Guild’s election held in Lagos.
It would be recalled that Emeka Ike was also at the centre of the crisis that ruined the election of the guild in Benin, some five months ago.
The actor stormed the venue where the election was being held to arrest the vice-chairman of the BOT of the Guild, Mr. Emma Ogugua with some policemen. “Emma was whisked away to Zone 2 headquarters of the police force where he met with the AIG in charge of the zone. He was accompanied by Steve Eboh, who is contesting in the election as President.
Speaking with HVP over the telephone, Emeka Ike said: ‘I stormed the venue to arrest Emma Agugua because he was conducting an illegal election. I have a case in court against the leadership of the Guild, until the matter is determined, nobody has the right to conduct any election under the law.”
Emma, according to our source, later came back to the secretariat some minutes past 5pm. It was not clear whether the election continued or not.
However, HVP gathered that at the Lagos venue of the election, which went on simultaneously in all the state chapters across the federation, top Nollywood stars like Omotola Ekeinde Jalade, Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Jim Iyke, and others were missing.
Emeka Rollas, Steve Eboh and Feberisima Ibinabo are contesting for the position of President.
