Finally, Emeka Ike clears air on school closure

Emeka Ike can now breathe with relief now that his school St. Nicholas College is back in business at the same venue No. 1, Raji Olamideji Crescent, Magodo, after he was evicted weeks back, he has blamed the landlord for the impasse and said that the school nor himself is bankrupt. There was new all over the internet two weeks ago that he was broke and cannot afford to run his school anymore. Box office had tried to reach him all the while but he refused to respond
The actor during the week finally responded through a spokesperson, Great Imo. Imo said this through a release,  “Like we have stated, St. Nicholas College was never shut by any authority. So, please disregard the report in the social media. There is a calculated attempt here to run down respected Nigerian celebrities who have their names to protect. The school is still there, pending when it will move to its permanent site. Emeka Ike is not just an A-list actor, he is a brand. If you go to South Africa, Britain, France and the US, his opinion about Nigeria counts. He is one man who represents the country well. So, why must he be rubbished by faceless writers?
We say in totality the story is false. Yes, there was an issue arising from a kangaroo court judgement which has been vacated because the possession of the said property is still in the care of Emeka Ike. The school was never shut at any time.

St. Nicholas College is still there, because that is where Emeka Ike has taken a long lease. The school signboard is still there because that is where the Lagos State government gazetted the school. We have not announced any relocation. If there is any development, we would tell you. Schools are in session. Those saying otherwise are deliberately undermining the millions the school owners have invested there over the years. Emeka Ike has invested millions of naira in the school so as to give the best education to Nigerians.”
