Pero Adeniyi drags Annie Idibia to court, demands N500m
Pero Adeniyi, the ex-girlfriend of Nigerian singer Innocent Idibia aka 2Baba, has filed a lawsuit against his wife Annie Idibia for $500 million.
Pero sued Annie for defamation of character in a lawsuit filed on November 10th, 2021.
She also wanted an apology and N500 million in damages for the emotional pain, damages, embarrassment, and shame she incurred as a result of the intentional and defamatory publication.
Annie Idibia had previously accused her husband, 2face, of sleeping at Pero’s house, thereby disrespecting her and their marriage.
Annie’s outburst on Instagram, on the other hand, was described by Pero’s lawyers, Okonjo Odiawa & Ebi, as malicious claims and derogatory and inaccurate material.
Annie’s outburst on her Instagram profile, she claimed, subjected her to internet bullying.
The mother of three insisted that her relationship with Tuface was only a “civil parental relationship,” and that she was dating someone else.
“It is our instruction to demand that you immediately and completely retract all of your allegations by the same measure with which they were published and publicly tender your unreserved apology to our client, not later than 72 hours from your receipt of this letter,” read part of the letter titled “Re: Malicious and Libelous Online Publication against Pero Adeniyi.”
“In addition, our client seeks compensation in the amount of N500,000,000.00 (Five Hundred Million Naira) for personal injury, reputational damage, embarrassment, shame, and emotional distress she has suffered as a result of your malicious, libellous, and defamatory publications against her, within the same time period stipulated above.”
The news comes after Annie expressed her regret to her family and the Idibias for hurting their hearts.
Annie admitted in a lengthy post on her birthday that she let her emotions cloud her judgement and lead her to make poor decisions.
