Crisis has reared its ugly head again in the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria barely nine months after Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike took over the reins of power.
There are allegations that all is not well among members of the executive council as the president, Emeka Ike, and the national secretary, Samuel Onibiyo, are at loggerheads.
Sources alleged that trouble between both parties began after the executive members of the guild attended a church service in Onitsha and an argument had ensued between the national secretary and the president over what has been tagged negligence and constitutional breaches by the president.
It was further alleged that following the altercation between Ike and Onibiyo in the church, the president had joined forces with the chairman of the Anambra chapter of AGN, Browny, to inflict harm on the national secretary.
Unconfirmed sources also alleged that the Nollywood actor took law into his hands and sacked Onibiyo, who was said to have been injured from the harm caused by the attack on him in Onitsha.
However, sources close to the AGN president denied the allegations terming it as unfounded and baseless attacks to dent the image of Emeka Ike.
Emeka Ike took over the AGN following the court order to terminate the appointment of the guild’s first female president, Ibinabo Fiberesima in 2015.
