Dancer and influencer, Jane Orezimena, popularly known as Janemena, has written a letter to Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, demanding the sum of N500m for alleged libel and claiming on social media that Janemena has a sex tape.
Jameela News reported that Tonto Dikeh had claimed last month that her ex-lover, Joseph Egbri, aka Prince Kpokpogri, had a sex tape of Janemena who is married.
But Mena claims that due to Dikeh’s allegation and the trauma it caused, she suffered a miscarriage, losing her one-month pregnancy.
The claims are included in a letter signed by Mena’s lawyers, Felix, Igelige & Associates titled, ‘Re: Libellous statements published by you on your Instagram and Facebook pages – A demand for immediate retraction of the libellous publications, tendering of unreserved apology and payment of N500,000,000.00 as exemplary damages to Mrs Usiwo Orezimena Jane, popularly known as Janemena.’
It reads in part, “We write you this letter to demand your immediate retraction of your publication referred to above, render an unreserved apology to her and pay her N500m as compensation for the callous publications.”
The lawyers said Dikeh’s post suggested that Mena, who is married, is having a sexual relationship with Kpokpogri and is cheating on her husband.
The lawyers maintained that no such sex tape exists, nor has she ever had a sexual relationship with Kpokpogri.
They said that due to Dikeh’s ‘recklessness,’ Janemena had been brought to “public ridicule, odium and opprobrium in the comity of Isoko women, her business associates, friends, members of her family, etc.
“The traumatic condition which your publications under reference threw Janemena into caused the miscarriage of her one-month-old pregnancy,” the letter further stated.
Mena subsequently demanded an immediate retraction of Dikeh’s statement which must be published in four national dailies along with an apology and payment of N500m.
