Nigerian actor, Jim Iyke might be sweating seriously on how to raise money after he was ordered by a court to pay N15.7 million to a Nigerian woman by the name Habiba Abubakar.

Reacting to the court order, the actor’s manager, simply known as Sam said that by the end of the week, the actor’s camp should be able to come out with a more concrete response, according to a report by The Nation.

It was gathered that Jim Iyke had been dodging the court for years, but was finally found guilty over the infamous suit Habiba filed against him, according to the report.

In the suit, Habiba accused Jim of owing her the sum of N16.5 million some years ago.

She said: “I run a charity organization called Elderly and the Poor, a self-sponsored charity organization. Jim Iyke needed help for his aged mother who is crippled by leg problems and high blood pressure and now bed-ridden. We took her to both England and India.”

As reported, during the court session, Habiba had proof of the UK visit, as the actor’s mum had stayed with her in her UK residence where she took her for a complete health checkup.

“We were told what was wrong with her and how much her hospital stay for knee replacement will cost my charity in UK and we have a policy for money, so we decided to take her to India in first class because it’ll be cheaper there, attached are tickets, photos as exhibit no,” she claims in the court reports.

The report further claims that Jim Iyke finally ran to her for assistance, wanting her to help his new clothing line grow by investing in it, she had no option than to invest, even though she was told by many people that he is bad, but she didn’t want to judge him by what others said.

“Jim told me he has been on the street since age 11 and that he had no childhood. I cried, because I had a son of that age at that minute. It was really heart breaking. But I realize now that you can take a person off the street but you can’t take street off the person, no matter what you do,” the report also states.
