Naira Marley Takes Legal Action Against Iyabo Ojo Over Defamatory Claims

Legal Action Unfolds

Renowned Nigerian artist Naira Marley, legally represented by Olalekan Ojo (SAN) & Co., has initiated a N500 million lawsuit against actress Iyabo Ojo.

The lawsuit stems from allegations made by Ojo on her Instagram account, prompting the singer to demand a public apology.

Allegations of Defamation

In a post on Instagram dated September 2023, Iyabo Ojo purportedly accused Naira Marley of engaging in spiritual and physical dealings with the late musician Ilerioluwa Aloba, known as Mohbad. The singer’s legal representation claims these accusations were baseless and damaging.

Claims of Mental Torture

Furthermore, Naira Marley’s attorney highlighted that the actress accused the singer of inflicting mental torture on Mohbad.

These allegations, deemed malicious and inaccurate, have led to the demand for a public apology.

Ultimatum for Apology

The legal representatives of Naira Marley have issued a seven-day ultimatum for Iyabo Ojo to issue a formal apology on her official Instagram account and in a national newspaper.

Failure to comply with this demand could result in a lawsuit seeking N500 million in damages from the actress.

Potential Legal Ramifications

Should Iyabo Ojo fail to offer the requested apology within the stipulated time frame, the legal team representing Naira Marley has explicitly stated their intent to pursue legal action, seeking substantial compensation for the alleged defamation.
