Jim Iyke is one of the controversial Nollywood actors who has been in the news constantly lately and it seems the last of him hasn’t been heard.As you read this right now,the dark skinned actor,has been flown to Britain for surgery over the injuries sustained two weeks back in Cameroun.

According to eye witnesses account,Jim Iyke whose real name is James Ikechukwu Asomugba was said to have been in the country to shoot a film and after work on the fateful day,he retired with some girls and his producer,to a nite club called Calypso to catch fun.

The nite club is believed to be located in a Camerounian town called Limbe.

According to eye witnesses,he entered the club and was mobbed by fans quite all right but a particular lady who came with some soldiers was interested in joining Jim Iyke on his table,to the displeasure of the soldiers who brought her to the nite club.She virtually took the drink the soldiers brought and moved over to Jim’s table and the soldiers came for her,asking that she should follow them home,a situation which the girl rejected.

In the process,Jim Iyke rose to the girl’s defence and one thing led to the other,exchange of blows occurred and we gathered that Jim Iyke was seriously beaten up by the soldiers.

He was said to have spent time in Camerounian hospital after the incident and is presently on his way to Britain for plastic surgery.

Speaking on the incident,Jim Iyke’s lawyer,Barrister Esther Uzoma denied that a lady was at the centre of the squabbles.

According to her,the producers,did not provide enough security for her client thereby exposing him to passionate and irate fans who mobbed him.She disclosed further that only two bodyguards were provided for him and so when the fans mobbed him,there was commotion and in the process,he got wounded.

She confirmed that Jim Iyke is indeed on his way abroad for plastic surgery as she is in touch with the doctors who treated him in Limbe Cameroun.
