Nigerian businessman, Olakunle Churchill has taken up a legal approach to the matter between him and his ex-wife, Tonto Dikeh.
Churchill’s legal counsel sent a cease-and-desist letter to the actress for disparaging him and his wife, Rosy Meurer.
Over the past few days, Tonto has leveled several accusations against the father of her son, and he also claimed that her statements are untrue.
In the letter dated February 19, Churchill’s lawyers noted that Tonto had falsely accused him and his wife Rosy on social media by calling him a deadbeat dad, a scammer, a robber, and among other unsavoury names.
The counsel said that the claim that Tonto spent N7 million on their wedding was untrue because they merely held a parlour ceremony at which the Nollywood star’s bride price was paid and only four guests were present.
The letter further made reference to Ms Dikeh’s harsh words calling Churchill’s wife, Rosy Meurer, a husband snatcher.
It said Tonto restricted all access for him to be with their seven years old son, King Andre despite the court’s ruling.
His lawyers requested that Tonto Dikeh publicly apologise to Churchill and his wife, Rosy Meurer, within 24 hours or risk filing a defamation lawsuit.
