    The fight between Nollywood actress, Tonto Dike and her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, has become messy despite the fact that the relationship had produced a child.

    P.M.EXPRESS reports that the war, which was fought in the media, has now moved to the Court following the recent action by Churchill.

    A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja Judicial Division, has invited popular Nollywood celebrity, Tonto Dikeh, to appear in Court over a suit filed by her former husband, Dr. Olakunle Oladunni Churchill and his organization, Big Church Foundation, a subsidiary of Big Church Groups.

    The case against Tonto in the High Court with Suit No CU/5801/19, issued 14 days notification with strict implications on her failure to appear before the Court, as the Court may proceed therein with judgement even in the absence of the Defendant (Tonto Dikeh).

    According to the case filed by the 1st and 2nd Claimant (Dr. Churchill and Big Church Foundation respectively), former husband of the defendant, it maintained claims that the series of malicious and fallacious allegations, assertions and accusations through media campaigns and publications by Tonto Dikeh and her charity organization were defamatory, baseless and sponsored to tarnish and damage the image and political ambition of the claimant, as he might have told her his intentions to run for Federal House of Representatives in his constituency.

    The suit identified several declarations with substantial proofs ascertaining illegalities in the action and approaches adopted by the claimant’s ex-wife. The claims includes the declaration that the defendant’s interview on series of false allegations on domestic violence, infidelity, false allegations of fraud, sexual disease, money ritual, homosexuality/bisexuality, and mockery of the 7,000 persons empowerment project by Big Church Foundation, describing the humanitarian intervention as fake.

    According to the suit, Tonto Dikeh’s interviews were aired, published and sponsored via broadcast channels, online media platforms, YouTube handles, notable print publications and even on her large 4million followers page on Instagram, with a view to impugn the character, standings in life and goodwill of her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill. The claim also requires the sum of 500million Naira as general damages from Tonto Dikeh (the defendant), for the libelous, slanderous and false allegations published against the claimants.

    In one of her defamatory assertions Tonto noted the father of her ex-husband was a gardener, but sources have revealed that her claim was just mere fabrication as the father of her ex-husband was instead a high leveled personality, recognized and engaged with several international leaders, with gainful impacts in areas of humanitarian impacts and diplomatic connections.

    The defendant’s action in appearance would be to propose and provide reliable evidence to sustain the accusations, insults, defamation, slander and allegations supported, published and promoted on several mass media networks and platforms, including television, YouTube channels, social media handles and the online media channels.


    Tonto Dikeh has also been compelled by the suit filed against her to publish or cause to be published an apology to her ex-husband, and a retraction of the publications on her Instagram pages, YouTube Channel, 3 major Nigerian newspapers and their online sites, as well as a file affidavit of compliance of same within 14 days of the delivery of judgement. Also an order of perpetual injunction may also be issued restraining the defendant, privies, agents etc from publishing or cause to be published any further defamatory words against the claimant. She would also have to refrain from any form of blackmail or extortion of her ex-husband in the name of upkeep and education for their son. However, she has continued to refuse the father access to the child, even when the Court had earlier granted him access to his son.

    The claim also demanded a sum of 10million Naira as cost of the action of defendant.

    Controversial Big Brother Naija 2019 housemate, Natasha Akide also known as Tacha or Simply Tacha has revealed why she loves Nigerian singer, Tekno.

    Tacha, weeks ago stirred up reactions on social media when she declared her soft spot for the ‘Skeletun’ hit maker, and the pair went on to share tweets that suggested a relationship was in the offing between them.

    The Port Harcourt First Daughter in a recent interview with Punch’s Sunday Scoop, revealed that she loves Tekno because he is a young talented artiste.

    “Oh my god! I love Tekno’s face and his music. He is such a talented young man and that alone is an inspiration to me. Shout out to him,” she said.

    Speaking about getting married to Tekno, the reality television show star said, “What do you think? You want to get us a hashtag already? I respect his talent and I’m sure he will be an amazing guy for whoever he marries in future.”

    Tacha also spoke about her new reality television show, Keeping up With Tacha, which was inspired by her fans and the people around her who have missed her.

    In her words, “KUWTACHA was inspired by my fans and the people around me. They missed seeing me on screen and as a matter of fact, there has been a hunger and demand for more of me, hence the reason for the show.

    “Sometimes, I have crazy ideas and quickly put it down in my notebook. Then, I call my team to see how we can bring them to life. With the show, I was so sure I had to do it for the entertainment part of my brand. It sounded crazy and challenging at first but we are doing it. There’s an urgency to sustain the show and we are working on that to make sure it doesn’t just go into thin air after the first episode. I have no doubt that KUWTACHA will be a huge success.”

    Tacha also maintained that the show wasn’t meant to be a competition to BBN. She said, “That’s not true. Big Brother Naija gave me a huge platform to ride on. They are a huge part of the Symply Tacha brand. How can I be competing with that? KUWTACHA is nothing like the BBNaija

    Burna Boy has unfollowed everyone on Instagram, except his London-based girlfriend Stefflon Don.
    The Nigerian star has 5.1million followers on the platform and now just follows one person.


    On Twitter, however, where he has 2.6million followers, he follows 1043 other people. Among the people he follows are star footballers such as Raheem Sterling, Eniola Aluko, Alexander Oxlade-Chamberlain and many institutions connected with his music career.


    The star’s aloofness on Instagram came to light as faced a backlash over his comment about his place in Nigeria’s musical pecking order.

    On February 12, Burna Boy said: FACT! I always knew I was and I am THE BEST. Everyone you think is the best KNOWS I’m BEST since Fela Kuti. But @timayatimaya told me something a long time ago that made me not care about being the best. “The World can do without the Best” the world will still spin regardless”.

    This has stirred controversy in Nigeria, with some critics slamming him for arrogance.

    On Saturday, Burna Boy repeated his point in a series of tweets on 15 February, which he has now deleted.

    “Remember I Told you I was the African Giant and most of you laughed and said I should be grateful for small fonts. I pray that you Learn from me, I mean this in no bragging way and the Wise know that the Future of Africa depends on the kind of strength and resilience i Show.

    “You say “thank God he didn’t win”. Because I say the Truth? And because of your twisted Fake views on humility. Ive been out here With My Family since 2012 going through unspeakable things just to get here against ALL ODDS.


    “I repeat. Nobody that is not Fela or My Family can EVER say they paved any way for me. Fuck you!”

    PM Express Reporting
    Facts have emerged on why a popular Celestial Church of God Pastor, Adesegun Babatunde, killed a lady suspected to be sex worker, buried her head and some parts of her body inside church altar in Osun State.

    P.M.EXPRESS gathered that Pastor Babatunde was said to have needed to perform certain rituals which involved human blood and parts so that he would perform miracles in order to boost the Church membership and make more money.
    However, the action has landed him in big trouble because he was later arrested by operatives from the Osun State Police Command alongside his accomplices, who claimed to be his boys and Church members.

    The Police confirmed that the victim’s head, legs, kidney, one of her hands were cut and buried at the altar, while the remaining body was buried in the bush.
    The victim was said to be from Rivers State, who left looking for greener pasture without the knowledge of her parents.
    On further interrogation, the suspects confessed that the prime suspect, Pastor Babatunde, engaged and told them to bring a lady for ritual purposes as he promised to pay them N500, 000. The suspects thereafter took the investigators to where the remains of the victim were buried.
    The Police were able to track and arrest Pastor Babatunde who fled the neighbourhood as soon as his accomplices were arrested.
    The exhumed remains of the victim were deposited at General Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
    The Police source said that the suspects will be charged to Court after the conclusion of the investigations.
    The suspects will likely be charged for murder which attracts death sentence by hanging if they are tried and found guilty of the alleged offence before the Court.

    Africa recorded its first case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Friday as a foreigner who had been put in isolation at a hospital in Egypt tested positive for the disease.

    In a statement, Egyptian Health Ministry said it had informed the WHO and had taken all necessary preventative measures.

    It did not give the nationality of the affected person or any other details.

    A total of 17 African countries, including Nigeria, have confirmed having facilities where the disease can be detected.

    Apart from Egypt, other countries where the virus has been confirmed are Singapore, UK, Malaysia, Taiwan, Spain, Vietnam, Germany, UAE, France and Japan.

    Other countries where cases of the disease have been reported are Thailand, Canada, Australia, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Cambodia, and the United States.

    WHO said it could take 18 months for the first vaccine for coronavirus to be ready.

    Meanwhile, the WHO says in the last 24 hours China has reported 1,820 laboratory-confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total to 46,550.

    Dr Michael Ryan, Executive Director, WHO Health Emergencies Programme, said this in a statement posted on the agency’s website on Friday.

    Ryan gave the figures while briefing newsmen on COVID-19 at WHO headquarters in Geneva.

    “China reported 13,332 clinically confirmed cases in Hubei province.

    “ We understand that most of these cases relate to a period going back over days and weeks and are retrospectively reported as cases, sometimes back to the beginning of the outbreak itself.

    “So this increase that you have all seen in the last 24 hours is largely down to a change in how cases are being diagnosed and reported.

    “So, in other words, in Hubei province only a trained medical professional can now classify a suspected case of COVID-19 as a clinically-confirmed case on the basis of chest imaging, rather than having to have a laboratory confirmation,” he said

    According to him, this allows clinicians to move and report cases more quickly, not having to wait for lab confirmation, ensuring that people get to clinical care more quickly.

    “It also allows public health responses in terms of contact tracing and other important public health measures to be initiated.

    ”You have noticed with suspect cases, there have been some backlogs in testing and this is also going to help ensure that people get adequate care and adequate public health measures can be taken.

    “So we are not dealing, from what we understand, with a spike in cases of 14,000 on one day,” he said.

    According to him, to an extent this is an artefact of the reporting and we are working with our colleagues in China, and our team there are working very hard.

    “They are working hard to see exactly how many days and weeks and how those numbers are spread across those days and weeks.

    “In the rest of China and the rest of the world, laboratory confirmation for reporting is still required,’’ he said.

    According to him, WHO will continue to track both laboratory and clinically-confirmed cases in Hubei province.

    “We have seen this spike in the number of cases reported in China, but this does not represent a significant change in the trajectory of the outbreak.

    “Outside China, there are 447 cases from 24 other countries, and now two deaths. In addition to the death in the Philippines, there is now one more death in Japan ,’’ he said.
