Maje Ayida Slams Ex Wife Toke Makinwa with N100 million Defamation Lawsuit Over her Book ”On Becoming”
Toke Makinwa’s estranged husband, Maje Ayida, has sued her for a whooping N100m over her tell-all memoir “On Becoming”, which he claims contained defamatory words.
Some weeks ago, Ayida’s lawyers sent a letter of demand asking Makinwa to retract the words, stop the sale of the book, copies that haven’t been sold should be retrieved and for her to tender an unreserved apology in several national dailies, which Toke, of course, ignored.
Through his lawyers, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP, Ayida has initiated legal proceedings at the Lagos judicial division of the high court, Lagos state, TheCable reports.
Kachifo Limited, publishers of the memoir were also sued alongside the TV personality. Ayida is demanding N100 million in damages in the suit which was filed February 7, requesting the court to donate damages awarded him to four charities which will be nominated by him.
Makinwa’s book had detailed her marriage to Ayida, a celebrity fitness expert that went sour.
The pair got married January 15, 2014, after being together for close to 12 years.
Meanwhile, Makinwa is currently on a book tour in the U.K to keep selling the book.
