Tonto had published falsehoods about Churchill and his wife, Rosy, on Instagram, and had labeled him a deadbeat father, fraudster, thief, and other things, according to the letter dated February 19th.
His lawyers also mentioned Tonto’s claim that she had sponsored their wedding, despite the fact that Churchill had footed the bill. His lawyers also stated that reports that Tonto spent N7 million on their wedding are false because they only had a parlor wedding where Tonto’s bride price was paid and only four people attended.
The letter also noted how Tonto had labelled Rosy Meurer, Churchill’s wife a husband snatcher and a former friend of hers and had accused Churchill of being a dead beat father, when in reality, Tonto has restricted all access for him to be with their son despite the court’s ruling.
His lawyers are demanding Tonto Dikeh publicly apologise to Churchill and his wife, Rosy Meurer within 24hours or risk being filed a defamatory lawsuit.
This isn’t the first time Churchill would like a suit against Tonto Dikeh.
