Netizens took to Instagram to drag the popular blogger for addressing Ajibola Ajayi a ’26-year-old lawyer.’ This sparks series of controversies.

 

It was discovered that an Abuja High Court asked Linda Ikeji to pay 25 million naira for exhibiting act of defamation.

 

The gossip blogger had written a story on her website citing Ajibola Ajayi, as having painted LAUTECH protesting students as a “generation of mannerless children” as revealed in an Instagram post with the username tagged “conceited_csj”.

 

After the story went viral, Ajibola affirmed that she knows nothing about the  Instagram handle, ‘conceited_csj.’

In her words as captured by glamsquad,

“My attention has been drawn to a series of publications on social media and the Internet at large, which claim that I, Mrs Ajibola Ajayi (formerly known as Miss Ajibola Abiola-Ajimobi) ? lambasted? and ? lashed out? at LAUTECH students calling them ?a manner less generation ? on my instagram page?.

“I wish to state that this story is completely false. It is malicious and willfully targeted at maligning and marring my character. This is an example of irresponsible journalism that has now incited hatred and violence against my husband, my children and myself. Over the last 48 hours my reputation has been tarnished and my family and I have been subjected to cyber bullying and harassment. I have also received threats of violence as well as limitless insults as a result of this false publication.

“This has now spiraled out of control hence I feel the need to publicly address it since I have received numerous calls from various people, including friends, family members, colleagues and clients.

“I wish to further state that the instagram page referred to as ?conceited_csj? through which it was alleged that I made the purported statement does not belong to me. Having once been a student myself, I am sympathetic to the plight of the LAUTECH students and empathize with them.”

Meanwhile, Olaniwun Ajayi LP (@OlaniwunAjayiLP) revealed the case has been prosecuted against Linda Ikeji in suit number FCT/CV/667/2018: Mrs Ajibola Ajayi v. Linda Ikeji in front of High Court in Abuja.

Meanwhile, Linda finally breaks silence in a tweet. In her words,

“Lol. You’re such an idiot lawyer. I hear you’re an inexperienced 26 year old? How can you file in Lagos and Abuja on the same issue? And then you don’t even inform me? Hope you’re ready for appeal and supreme court? And a countersue? Tell your client to get ready!
