Iyabo Ojo has filed an N500 million lawsuit against Lizzy Anjorin, her colleague, over alleged libel.
Anjorin had conducted a series of Instagram Live sessions targeting a character she named “Sepeteri”.
She claimed that Sepeteri is linked to a prominent yet mysterious blog.
She added that the person is also knowledgeable about the circumstances surrounding the death of Mohbad, the street-pop singer.
Convinced that Anjorin was referring to her, Iyabo Ojo responded with a video challenging the actress.
Ojo hinted at potential legal action.
Despite this, Anjorin continued with more accusations.
In a letter issued by Iyabo’s legal team, Anjorin is sued for N500 million.
Ojo, as seen in the suit, is also demanding a public apology and retraction of the commentaries.
Anjorin was also given 14 days to respond to the lawsuit or face further legal action.
“Our client came on her verified social media handle on Instagram and called out your name and asked if you were referring to her as ‘Sepeteri’,” the suit read in parts.
“She further challenged you to mention her name for clarity and put an end to the second-guessing. Surprisingly you did not waste time responding.
“We formally make the following demands that you publish in four national papers retracting all libellous publications within fourteen days from the date on this letter.
“That you pay a sum of N500,000,000 to our client as damages to assuage her battered image caused by your defamatory publications within fourteen days from the date on this letter
“If you fail or neglect to accede to our demands within fourteen days from the date of this letter, we shall be left to activate full weight of legal machinery against you, without any further recourse to you.”
