Popular Instagram dancer, Usiwo Orezimena Jane, popularly known as Jane Mena, has sued actress Tonto Dikeh for N500m for defamation of character.
In September 2021, Tonto in a post shared on her Instagram page revealed that her ex-boyfriend, Prince Kpokpogri has sex tapes of every woman he has slept with, including celebrity dancer, Jane Mena.
Jane Mena, who is married has now filed a petition before the Police against the actress, demanding an apology in four national dailies in Nigeria for defamation of character.
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 published by the Dailypost 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 sex tapes. 4. Jane Mena distributes sex tapes. 5. Jane Mena’s sex 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.
