Iyabo Ojo Counter Sues Naira Marley; Demands 1 Billion Naira In Compensation

Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has counter-sued Nigerian singer, Naira Marley for a staggering one billion Naira.
It would be recalled that Marley via his lawyers on Thursday demanded that the actress issued a retraction and a public apology on her Instagram page and in a national daily within seven days after alleging his involvement in the death of Afrobeat star, Mohbad.
In response to the suit, the actress via her legal team expressed dismay at Marley’s approach, disclosing that he chose to announce his 500 million naira legal action against her on social media instead of sending a direct communication to her, a move she deems unlawful.
The actress cum internet sensation, also spoke on the irregularity of the legal action, pointing out that the suit bearing her name and address, made its way to the public eye before getting to her. Ojo stated that documents shared some couple of days ago by the Marlian boss, which bore an inscription of the Nigerian Bar Association left her legal team conflicted about the motives behind the press release.
She argued that Naira Marley made a delibrate effort to tarnish her hard earned standing in public eye following the attempt to ruin her reputation by releasing the legal notice to the press before delivering it to her.
Controversy had stirred between the duo, after Ojo called out Naira Marley and Samlarry for physical abusing Mohbad before his sudden death. The actress also accused Naira Marley of drugging her children during an event.
Her counter suit is coming barely a week after Naira Markey demanded a retraction of Iyabo Ojo’s statements and a public apology or else a payment of 500 million naira would be made.
