Its a pity! This is not a good way to start this year because for popular actor Emeka Ike, this is not the best of times for him.
As a school proprietor, the actor ventured into another business and turned educationist with his school located at 1, Raji Olamideji Crescent, Magodo beside PMS filling station on CMD road - but unfortunately the school was shut down or better still taken possession of by the court on January 24, 2014 after a protracted court case that lasted for 5 years.
Emeka had for some time now been running a battle with the owners of the property during which the well known actor refused to pay a dime to the property owners.
The school, St. Nicholas College, a secondary school was established in 2008 by the ace actor. According to gist, Emeka was supposed to have invested about N200 million in the making of the school.
Some of the allegations are as follows:
*None payment of salaries.
*He was also alleged to prefer employing unqualified & non professional teachers in a school, where parents were paying exorbitant school fees thinking they were getting the best of education and more. So bad was the situation that many parts of building were said to have been in a state of disrepair.
Last week, court bailiffs acting under instructions took possession of the school. Just before sealing it, they were reported to have carted away a few of the valuables that were still in the school, like the school bus, a few air-conditioners and some furniture. Some of the properties are still outside the school premises.
