February 06, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actress, Sarah Martins, has responded to the N500m lawsuit filed against her by May Edochie, Yul’s first wife.
May had demanded a public apology from Martins for sharing a photoshopped picture, which included herself, her kids, her husband, co-wife Judy Austin and her son.
She also demanded a full retraction of some defamatory comments Martins made on Daddy Freeze’s live session about her failing in her duties as a wife, which prompted Yul to take a second wife.
May gave a 14-day ultimatum for her to make the apology or get dragged to court and pay a fine of N500M.
In response to the lawsuit, Martins took to her Instagram page to pen a note as regards what occurred.
She stated that the defamatory comment wasn’t made by her and she even apologised to May in that live video for sharing the photoshopped picture.
Martins made it known that she won’t be bullied, insulted or harassed by May’s fans. She ended by stating that her legal team will respond soon.
“Swipe to see the honest post made by a renowned lawyer, not a fraudster posing as a lawyer.
“In this video, I clearly apologised to your supposed queen if she found my photoshopped picture offensive, even when she didn’t ask me for an apology.
“At the end of the live show, I wrapped it up with yet another apology to the same supposed queen if I uttered any word against her knowingly or unknowingly.
“You can see clearly, I wasn’t the one who made the utterance she claimed that I made.
“One Ms or Mrs Sarah James was the one who said ‘all your supposed queen,’ which she claimed that I made.
“No, I wouldn’t keep quiet, especially when I am being insulted, harassed and bullied by her so-called fans for what I didn’t do.
“Today, I was physically harassed by her aggressive and uncultured fans and I wouldn’t tolerate such behaviour against me again.
“You will hear from my legal team,” she said.
