Usiwo Orezimena Jane, popularly known as Jane Mena, a renowned Instagram dancer, has sued actress Tonto Dikeh for N500 million for character defamation.
Charmingpro Magazine recalls that Tonto stated in a post on her Instagram page in September 2021 that her ex-boyfriend, Prince Kpokpogri, has sex videos of every woman he has slept with, including star dancer, Jane Mena.
Janemena, who is married, has now filed a suit with the police against the actress, seeking an apology in four Nigerian national dailies for character defamation.
The petition written on her behalf by her solicitors, Rockson Igelige, of Felix, Igelige & Associates, described Tonto Dikeh’s claims as malicious.
Jane Mena also demanded a retraction of publication by Tonto Dikeh on all her social media pages.
Part of the petition read: “These malicious publications by Tonto and in the context in which it was made, was understood by Janemena to mean the following amongst other things: Jane Mena who is a married woman had and is still having an amorous or sexual relationship with Prince Kpokpogri (referred to in the publications as Joseph Egbri) who is not Jane Mena’s husband. 2. Jane Mena is cheating on her lawful husband. 3. Jane Mena has s*x tapes. 4. Janemena distributes sx tapes. 5. Janemena’s sx tapes (old and very recent ones) are in possession of PRINCE KPOKPOGRI (Joseph Egbri) with which he will use to blackmail our client any moment from now.”
Jane Mena also asked that the actress tenders an unreserved apology to her and pay the sum of N500 million as exemplary damages for the malicious publications.
Jane Mena’s lawyer also warned Tonto Dikeh that legal action will be taken against her if she failed to meet their demands within one month of receiving the petition.
