Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has threatened to sue journalists who publish an alleged ”edited” video revealing how she assaulted her ex-husband, Churchill Olakunle.
The star actress, whose marriage ended over several allegations of domestic violence and cheating, has been seen in an online viral video released by her ex-husband where she was fighting him.
But in a statement signed by her lawyer, Festus Keyamo, Miss Dike said she will be prepared to take up legal action against any blogger or journalist that uses the ‘’edited’’ version of the video without requesting for the full version.
The statement entitled Imminent Release of Edited Video on Tonto Dikeh by ex-husband reads in full:
‘’We act as solicitors to Miss Tonto Dikeh, a prominent Nollywood actress.’’
‘’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.’’
