The past one hour witnessed the on-going seperation battle between Tonto Dikeh and her ex-hubby, Olakunle Churchill take a new turn.
A 15-second video was released online depicting Tonto Dikeh in the act of hitting her ex-hubby, Churchill. Within minutes of the video release, the actress through her lawyers from Festus Keyamo’s chambers issued a statement saying the video is edited and doesn’t show the part where Churchill initiated the attack.
The statement from her lawyers also threatened to sue any media house that publishes the edited version as against the full version of the video that captures the whole fight.
See the statement below…
We act as solicitors to Miss Tonto Dikeh, a prominent Nollywood actress.
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.
