The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) president is concerned his detractors are trying to use the separation against him according to a Punch News report.

However, he has promised to release a press statement in future in a bid to address the public concerning the dissolution of his marriage.

“I don’t want to talk about the dissolution of my marriage with anyone yet.

"When the time comes, I would put out a well detailed press release about what went wrong and you would be the first to have it.

"I feel some of my detractors want to use this as an opportunity to get to me. Or are they using you? When it is time for me to talk, I would speak but not now. Thank you," he said.

Awos Awosola, the president of the Lagos Island Customary Court ordered that Ike's marriage to Emma be dissolved as there were no signs of resuscitating the union.

The latter filed for separation in July 2015 following allegations of physical and verbal abuse by the actor.
