November 28, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, has taken a firm stand against her colleague, Elizabeth Anjorin, and is threatening a N1 billion lawsuit over a defamatory video.
The unfolding feud came to light as Iyabo, through her Instagram account, shared copies of a legal warning issued to Lizzy by her attorneys, Bimpe Ajegbomogun and co.
The letter contends that Lizzy has been disseminating vile and denigrating video content on her social media, directly targeting Iyabo.
According to Iyabo’s legal representation, Lizzy tacitly acknowledged the allegations when she agreed with followers in the comments section who asserted that the derogatory posts were directed at Iyabo.
The lawyers revealed that Iyabo called Lizzy out on Instagram recently, asking her to mention her name as the person she refers to as ‘Sepeteri’ in her defamatory posts, but surprisingly, Lizzy came out minutes after and said she would not mention their client’s name, but will continue to refer to her as Sepeteri.
Iyabo’s legal team argues that this response effectively affirms Lizzy’s intent to target Iyabo.
The accusations escalated as the lawyers claim that Lizzy’s content suggested Iyabo’s involvement in a threesome with her daughter, alleging that Iyabo and her partner were responsible for the demise of late singer Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Further, Lizzy purportedly insinuated that Iyabo’s partner is an ex-convict, who suffered sexual abuse in prison, and labelled Iyabo a prostitute and implied a romantic involvement with singer Azeez Fashola widely known as Naira Marley.
In response to these grave allegations, Iyabo’s legal team has issued a series of demands. They insist that Lizzy publish a public apology in four national newspapers and issue an apology on both her Facebook and Instagram accounts. Additionally, the lawyers stipulate that Lizzy pays a substantial sum of N500 million in damages to Iyabo.
The legal ultimatum concludes with a stark warning: failure to comply within 14 days will compel Iyabo to pursue a N1 billion lawsuit against Lizzy.
