The Initial Story

In what feels a little like the plot of a B movie, hot Nollywood actors Emeka Ike and Jim Iyke are currently on loggerheads following an adultery mess totally gone wrong.

The two actors were in Baltimore, United States of America to shoot a movie (Title Undisclosed) where one Phillip a United States resident and a good friend of Emeka Ike accused the actor of sleeping with his wife Ruth. Emeka denied it all putting all the blame on Jim Iyke and not only accusing him of framing him up but also calling Jim Iyke a 'low life small boy'.

Phillip and Emeka Ike have a friendship that span over fifteen years and Phillip claims to have supported Emeka during his rise to fame, and to have even given him some funds to shoot a movie, something he claims Emeka never did. He also claims that Emeka has been sneaking into the U.S every now and then to sleep with his wife.

Emeka on the other hand agrees that someone has been sleeping on Phillips bed, but that someone is Jim Iyke. Emeka claims that when Ruth came into the country sometime last year, Jim Iyke harassed her so much her husband Phillip begged Emeka to talk to him. He also claims that Jim is out to bring him down and Phillip who he says is a crook involved in Visa scams in the U.S is also obviously jealous because he just purchased a Touareg and opened his own Secondary School.

The whole thing started when Emeka called Phillip from his hotel room and told Phillip (who was in Huston on business) that Jim was having an affair with his wife. In fumes, Phillip called Jim, and Jim retorted in annoyance telling Phillip that if he really wanted to know what was going on, he should take the next flight and come see for himself. Phillip did just that.

When Phillip got to the hotel, he met Jim with his girlfriend and his wife with Emeka. He was so furious he was about to cause a ruckus the police had to get him out of the hotel, telling him if he had any issues he should go to court.

He says after the incidence he says Emeka claims to be in a cult and is threatening to kill when he comes to Nigeria.

Phillip is talking to the press and has also reported the situation to the Acting Guild of Nigeria who shouldn't have any say on the personal life of actors but give advice. Jim Iyke isn't saying very much, he couldn't be less bothered and says God has vindicated him

Ruth (Philip's Wife) Version of the Story

This is her story completely uncut and mostly unedited:

What u hear is absolutely not true, Emeka Ike is innocent in this whole mess. Jim Iyke started heading on me since 2005 and I refused his advances and reported him to my husband Philips Ehiagwina. Jim Iyke tried to talk me out of telling my husband and when I insisted he got upset and decided to set Emeka up because Emeka is the only person I confided in and when I was invited to Maryland to feature in a movie Emeka was there and I always confided in him and asked questions. Emeka and his wife Emma have been my friends for over 11 years now, I visit them when I visit Nigeria...

Jim Iyke made lofty promises to me try to win my heart and he never expected me to say no so when I did he tried to convince me telling me that the man I claim to love so much and brought to the United States has been cheating on me with everything in skirts (Philips Ehiagwina) an Edo man I met in Nigeria in 1998 and sacrificed all to ensure he has a good life. Jim Iyke told me all that my husband was and is still doing to me in my absence. even got Ini Edo the actress d moment, I have confirmed all Jim Iyke told me about my husband. one of my husband's mistresses Nkiru who lives in Houston ,Texas set him up after she found out that my husband betrayed his wife (me) and lied to me. She decided to set him up with an audio coverage and got every prove, he confessed about playing me for a green card on tape.

At d moment he has a case with the United States Immigration and the FBI is also on this case. It is a very long story. I have decided to speak to the press and bring d truth to d table at this moment.

it is very unfair that Jim Iyke who knows the truth but afraid to face it could be so callous by accusing an innocent person like Emeka Ike who has been nothing but a big brother to me since I've known him.

I'm very upset about it and I will fight for d truth in this case. My husband met me as a virgin and took my virginity on a night of our honeymoon. for him to paint a bad picture of me simply because I reported his green card fraud to d FBI since he has refused to confide in me is something I never saw coming but I will fight to d end.

Jim Iyke has tried dating several girls just to obtain a green card, one of d girls he dated confessed that he tried to get her pregnant and when she said no Jim Iyke decided to spend her money with promises of everlasting love and then left her for another person. Now he is dating a Jamaican girl who just got her green card few months ago after marrying for a green card. She is also a male magazine model who strips naked for male magazines.
