Tonto Dikeh Allegedly Slammed With N500m Suit By Ex-husband Olakunle Churchill

Popular actress Tonto Dikeh has been invited to appear at the High Court in Abuja after her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, filed a defamation of character suit against her. The actress is being sued by Churchill and his organisation, Big Church Foundation.

The case against the actress issued a 14-day notification charging the actress to appear in court. It was also gathered that the notification states that if the actress fails to appear, the court will proceed with judgment without hearing her argument. It was gathered that Churchill and his organisation claimed that the actress and her charity organisation defamed him with malicious and fallacious allegations using media campaigns and publications.

Churchill also claimed that his ex-wife defamed him to tarnish his imaged and political ambition after he revealed to her that he had intentions of running for the House of Representive in his constituency. The suit also identified proofs of several illegalities in the action and approaches used by the actress.

The proofs include the claims that the actress falsely accused her ex-husband of domestic violence, infidelity, fraud, sexual disease, money ritual, and mockery of the 7000 persons empowerment project by Big Church Foundation, describing the humanitarian intervention as fake.

It was also stated that the actress’ claims were aired, published, and sponsored via broadcast channels, online media platforms, YouTube channels, and printing publications. Churchill has asked for the sum of N500 million as general damages from the actress for the libelous, slanderous and false allegations published against him.

The suit also compels the actress to publish an apology to her ex-husband, and a retraction of the publications on her Instagram pages, YouTube Channel, three major Nigerian newspapers and their online sites.

She was also charged to file an affidavit of compliance of the same within 14 days of the delivery of judgment. Dikeh was also asked to desist from any form of blackmail or extortion of her ex-husband in the name of upkeep and education for their son. It was, however, reported that she has continued to refuse the father access to their child, even when the court had earlier granted him access to his son.
