Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe has threatened to sue aggrieved bride, Lawrentta Adesuwa Sawyer, and designer, Rikaotobyme for ‘her accusing her falsely and trying to cast aspersions on her person’.
The bride through her lawyer had accused Rikaotobyme and Mercy Aigbe of fraudulent conspiracy to convert their client’s property for “selfish gains.”
Mercy has now taken to Instagram to react below…
“The lingering ‘Red Dress’ issue continued this morning as the bride threatened to sue the designer Rikaotobyme and also falsely accused me of connivance with the said designer …..( without substantial proof or evidence )
Having served Rikaotobyme a letter tru my lawyer on Jan 8 to issue an official statement on the above subject matter with clear indications that I have never met her before or transacted business with her which she failed to do, I have instructed my lawyer to go ahead and seek redress.
For the bride, in as much as I sympathize with her, I take exception to her accusing me falsely and trying to cast aspersions on my person.
I have given the bride tru her lawyers 7 days to retract the statement that read thus; ‘the sequence detailed above has evidenced a deliberate and fraudulent conspiracy between the designer and Ms Mercy Aigbe to convert our client’s legal property for selfish gains’. This is a malicious allegation. Whao, where is the legal property I want to convert. What a statement. I hereby demand a retraction and public apology, failure to do so I will have no option than to seek redress in the law court by suing her ( the bride) and the designer for false accusation and trying to defame my person…….😇😇😇”
Recall that the bride had written to Maryam demanding a compensation from her.
Maryam in a post she shared in the first week, apologised to the aggrieved bride online and added that the bride had refused to pick up her calls.
