May Aligwe, the first wife of Yul Edochie, has taken legal action against an Instagram user who allegedly shared a doctored photo of her family.


May took to Instagram on Friday to share a legal document by her counsel in which she accused Sarah Chukwukere — with the username @officialsarahmartins — of “defamation of character and false polygamy.”

In the letter dated February 1, Sarah was accused of editing a photo depicting May “as part of a polygamous family in which she is a co-wife”.

In the legal document, Sarah was also said to have implied that May “failed in her duties as a wife to Mr. Yul Edochie and that such failures led Mr. Yul Edochie to leave our Client (May) and get married to Ms. Judy Austin” during an Instagram live session with Daddy Freeze, the media personality.


The letter demanded that Chukwukere apologises and retracts her defamatory publication.

May also threaten to sue for N500 million in damages, if Sarah failed to meet the stated demands.

“Should you fail to comply with the above demands, this Firm has been instructed to commence a lawsuit against you without further warning. You must therefore treat this letter as a Notice of Intention to Sue,” the document reads in part.


“In the event of such lawsuit, our Client will ask for damages in an amount of not less than Five Hundred Million Naira (N500,000,000), in addition to wide-reaching injunctive reliefs.”

In April 2022, Yul unveiled Judy Austin as his second wife with a picture of their child.

The actor also boasted that he’s “proud to be a polygamist“.

May, however, fired back, saying she would not be cajoled into accepting polygamy.
