Controversial Yoruba actor Yomi Fabiyi has reacted to legal summons written against by actress Iyabo Ojo who demanded a “retraction of defamatory publication” he made against her.
The suit was filed against Yomi Fabiyi after he earlier accused the actress and comedian, Princess, of promising to ‘Kill Baba Ijesha” if he is released on bail after he was detained for allegedly sexually molesting Princess’ foster daughter.
In the court papers, Iyabo’s lawyers said Yomi’s statement is “offensive and vexatious” and demanded a retraction, an apology, and payment of damages.
They added that Yomi’s allegation has caused Iyabo Ojo, her family, and business associates “trauma and anxiety”.
They also demanded that he desists from making further “additional or fresh defamatory publications” against Iyabo Ojo.
While reacting to the development, Yomi Fabiyi reshared the same defamatory post that brought about the suit and told Iyabo Ojo that he doesn’t dignify everyone with a response.
He wrote thus in reply: “Ignore any unnecessary CIVIL SUITS attached to my name, I don’t dignify everybody with a response. Not even a non-criminal suit that lack merits and grounds. I don’t have time to waste walai. Your lawyer will never tell you how many months, funds and process involve in civil suits.
“Anyway, anybody drowning will cling on anything to survive. Save your money for feed and tiktok costumes, don’t let any lawyer eat your money iyawo mi. You deserve better dear, time still dey to make a detour and save your face. I don’t deal in social media court. Enjoy the funny moments,” he added.
