Usiwo Orezimena Jane, also known as Janemena, a dancer and social media influencer, has filed a case with the Nigerian Police Force accusing actress Tonto Dikeh of cyberstalking and criminal defamation of character.
Glamsquad Magazine recalls that Tonto claimed that her ex-boyfriend, Prince Kpokpogri, is in possession of Janemena’s old and new sex recordings in a post uploaded on her Instagram page in September 2021.
Janemena has filed a petition against the actress, despite the fact that she did not acknowledge or refute the accusation when it was made.
Tonto’s assertions were regarded as detrimental in the petition prepared on her behalf by her lawyers, Felix, Igelige & Associates’ Rockson Igelige.
“These malicious publications and in the context in which it was made, meant and Janemena understood it to mean the following amongst other things:”
“Janemena who is a married woman had and is still having an amorous or sexual relationship with Prince Kpokpogri (referred to in the publications as Joseph Egbri) who is not Jamena’s husband.”
“2. Janemena is cheating on her lawful husband. 3. Janemena has sex tapes. 4. Janemena distributes sex tapes. ”
“5. Janemena’s sex tapes (old and very recent ones) are in possession of PRINCE KPOKPOGRI (Joseph Egbri) with which he will use to blackmail our client any moment from now.” the petition read in part.
The petition also state that ‘‘the reckless and ill-motivated publications’’ have brought Janemena to public ridicule, odium, and opprobrium in the comity of Isoko women, her business associates, friends, members of her family.”
Janemena asked an immediate retraction of Tonto Dikeh’s social media posts, as well as publication of the retraction in four Nigerian national daily, in her appeal. She further demanded that the actress apologize without reservation and pay her N500,000 (Five Hundred Million Naira) in exemplary damages for the defamatory publications.
Tonto would face legal action if she does not comply with Janemena’s demands within one month of receiving the petition, according to Janemena’s lawyer.
“We appeal to concerned individuals and communities in cyberspace not to hastily conclude that our client is guilty of the allegations against her. Therefore, Tonto Dikeh is being given this golden opportunity to prove her allegation in court, because “he who asserts must prove same to be true” as a requirement of the law.” part of the petition read
