Olakunle Churchill has slammed a N500 million lawsuit on his estranged wife, Tonto Dikeh, over her infamous May 2019 interview.
Tonto had revealed shocking details of her short-lived marriage to Churchill, a businessman, in a three-part series which was posted in May 2019.
In the video series titled ‘The Evidence’, the actress made some provocative and indicting claims against her ex-husband. She said the claims are some of the reasons she quit the marriage, which produced a son, King Andre Churchill.
She also alleged that Churchill is into cyber fraud and claimed that contrary to widespread speculation that Churchill was related to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, his father was Mr Obasanjo’s gardener.
Following the series of claims made in the viral videos, Churchill has approached a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to seek legal redress against Tonto.
In the lawsuit notice which has him as the 1st claimant and Big Church Foundation as the second claimant, Churchill stated that the allegations are baseless and sponsored to tarnish and damage his image and political ambition.
In the court summon which has gone viral, the actress was asked to appear for trial 14 days from December 10, 2019, as the court may proceed therein with judgment even in her absence.
The case is expected to come up on Thursday February 20.
