Toke Makinwa's ex-husband slams her with multi-million suit for defamation

Celebrity marriage troubles here and there. Through his lawyer, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), Maje Ayida has initiated legal proceedings at Lagos High Court, against his estranged wife, Toke Makinwa.
The Lagos-based celebrity fitness expert instituted the legal action against Toke over her memoir which he said contained defamatory words.

Kachifo Limited, publishers of the memoir, On Becoming, were also sued alongside Toke.

The suit is a follow-up to letters of demand earlier served Toke in December which she ignored.
Ayida is demanding N100m in damages in the suit which was filed February 7. He has requested the court to donate damages awarded him to four charities which will be nominated by him.

Maje had demanded that she retracts the defamatory words contained in the memoir and tender an unreserved apology, but Toke stubbornly continued promoting the book.
