Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has said she will sue any media platform that publishes an “edited video clip” set to be released by her ex-husband Olakunle Churchill.
The actress said the video has been edited to portray her as “being involved in domestic violence against him”.
In a statement released by her lawyer, Dikeh said the video set to be released was her reaction to physical abuse suffered from Churchill.
The statement entitled ‘Imminent release of edited video on Tonto Dikeh by ex-husband’ was signed for Festus Keyamo Chambers by Okechukwu Uju-Azorji and John Ainetor.
“We act as solicitors to Miss Tonto Dikeh, a prominent Nollywood actress,” it read.
“It has come to our knowledge that her ex-husband, Mr. Olakunle Churchill has perfected plans to release a short and edited video depicting and portraying our client as being involved in some domestic violence against him.
“Our client wants all bloggers and/or journalists to request for the full version of the video showing the said domestic scene which started with a physical abuse of our client by her ex-husband, which earned her a swollen face.
“Her ex-husband only intends to release our client’s reaction to the assault on her and not the assault itself.
“We shall be prepared to take legal action against any blogger/journalist that uses the edited version without insisting on or showing the full version.”
Churchill and Dikeh have been on the warpath since they parted ways on an acrimonious note. They had a child from their short-lived union.
