There seems to be a new twist to the controversy trailing the marriage of Nollywood star actress, Mercy Aigbe. A certain Miss Opemititi Ajayi, who Mercy alleged slept with her husband, Lanre Gentry, has through her lawyer, Fashanu Chambers, written the troubled actress. The law chambers also wrote popular blogger, Miss Linda Ikeji both for alleged defamation of character of its client, Miss Opemititi Ajayi, and ‘frivolous and malicious statements altered and published respectively by the duo.’
Recall that in an interview with Broadway TV, Mercy Aigbe was quoted to have claimed that her husband slept with Miss Opemititi, a statement which the chambers claimed was ‘unsubstantiated and fabricated.’
According to the letter, ‘Linda Ikeji on her part had exclusively broke the news on her blog that Opemititi a.k.a Queen Stunner was responsible for Mercy Aigbe’s failed marriage, thereby dragging her name in the mud without any backing evidence; an act of crime as codified in the cyber crime laws of Nigeria.’
However, the complainants (Opemititi’s) lawyers have demanded a retraction and public apologies from both Mercy Aigbe and Linda Ikeji in the media including Linda’s social platform and also demanded a total sum of 500 million naira each from the duo as damages.
Copies of the letters are attached below.
