Afeez Fashola, better known professionally as Naira Marley, has filed a N500 million (five hundred million naira) lawsuit against actress Iyabo Ojo, demanding a public apology.
Naira Marley, through Olalekan Ojo (SAN) & Co., accused the actress’s Instagram account of being the source of malicious and inaccurate content in a letter to Iyabo.
In an Instagram post in September 2023, the month the singer died, Iyabo accused Naira Marley of having spiritual and physical dealings with the late musician Ilerioluwa Aloba, also known as Mohbad, according to the letter.
Naira Marley’s attorney also claimed that the actress accused him of mentally torturing Mohbad.
His lawyer asked that the actress apologise on her official Instagram account and in a national newspaper within seven days of receiving the letter.
Furthermore, if Iyabo Ojo does not comply, they have threatened to sue and seek N500 million in damages from the actress.
