Tuface Idibia’s lover Pero Adeniyi has demanded the sum of ₦500 million from Annie Idibia, Tuface’s wife.
In a pre-action letter of demand dated November 10, 2021, Pero claimed Annie Idibia defamed her. Besides the ₦500 million compensation sought, Pero also demanded a public apology which she claims is for emotional disorder, embarrassment and humiliation she was subjected to owing to the defamatory publication Annie Idibia made against her.
Recall that in September of 2021, Annie Idibia accused Tuface of passing a night at Pero’s house, which she claims was disrespectful to their marriage.
Reacting to Annie’s outburst on Instagram, Pero’s lawyers, Okonjo Odiawa & Ebi, said her comments were disparaging and contained false information.
Pero further claimed through her lawyers that Annie’s Instagram outburst subjected her to online bullying.
The demand letter, which was titled: ‘Malicious and Libelous Online Publication against Pero Adeniyi,’ reads in part:
“It is our instruction to demand that you immediately and completely retract all 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.
“Additionally, our client demands compensation in the sum of ₦500,000,000 (Five Hundred Million Naira) for personal injury, reputational damage, embarrassment, shame and emotional distress suffered as a result of your malicious, libellous and defamatory publications against her, within the same period stipulated above.”
This development is coming shortly after Annie tendered a public apology to her family and that of her husband for “breaking their hearts.”
In a lengthy Instagram post, Annie admitted that she allowed her emotions to becloud her judgement, which resulted in her making bad decisions.
