Embattled Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has released a statement through her lawyers on the viral video footage of one of her fights with ex-husband Olakunle Churchill.
The actress said in the statement that the video wrongly depicted her as a violent person.
According to the statement entitled ‘Imminent release of edited video on Tonto Dikeh by ex-husband’ and signed by Okechukwu Uju-Azorji and John Ainetor for Festus Keyamo Chambers, the actress warned pressmen and bloggers to desist from publishing the video content.
“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.”
