Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, says her former husband, Olakunle Churchill, is an internet fraudster (Yahoo Boy) as well as a ritualist.
Africa News24 (AN24) reports that the Nigerian actress made this claim in a three-part video where she narrated mind-boggling details of her controversial breakup with her ex-husband.
In the videos dubbed ‘The Evidence’, Dike is seen in one of the videos making provocative claims about the father of her son; some of which she said eventually prompted her split from Churchill.
Asides details of how the duo met in a night club following a traumatizing experience on her part in 2013, the gifted movie star alleged that her previously romance-filled relationship with Churchill took a sour turn when her suspicions about him being into internet fraud and rituals were confirmed.
Dike said: “After my son’s birth, I had been suspecting that he was into Yahoo. Before I came back to Nigeria, I had already begun to suspect but the only thing that made me confirm was the night that he wasn’t supposed to be home and I slept early because of my son,” she narrated.
“I heard some noise in his room because he’s in the penthouse and my room is under. I opened up this room and saw a full-grown man wearing a red cloth in his waist with red candles everywhere around him with a laptop in his hands.”
The Nollywood actress backed her claims in the explicit series with videos; pictures; documents and private conversations with her ex-husband.
Dike also challenged her former husband to seek the service of forensic experts to discredit the authenticity of the evidence she has brought against him.
“I’m a mother dangerously in love with her son. The reason I’m doing this is that I want my son to grow up and listen to my own side of the story. I’ll like to clear up all the lies and allegations once and for all,” she said.
“My son’s father has been pushing me to do a lot of irrational things online that is not me, because of the things he’s doing behind the scene. He’s granting interviews every two weeks on paper; TV; and radio stations, all on me and they are all lies I’m here to clear. I’m not going down history as a liar, no, I’m not.” (AfricaNews24)

Nigerian blogosphere is buzzing right now and the trending word is ‘Mercy.’ Ever since news poured in on Friday that popular actress, Mercy Aigbe, was beaten silly by her husband, Lanre Gentry and she, in response, returned to allegedly break down his gate and carted away all her belongings, social media has been wild with tales flying around with reckless abandon on what truly happened between the couple. This latest development comes after persistent rumours of rampant domestic abuse in the marriage of the Gentrys over the years. Pictures of Mercy’s battered face were posted on several blogs, and she also posted a picture preaching against domestic violence on her Instagram page. This was even as Lanre took to the Internet to profess his love for his wife and swear that he could never beat her. However, as is to be expected, commenters online are divided with some sympathetic to Mercy and others standing up for her husband.
Online activist Japheth Omojuwa wrote, “I just saw (the) Mercy Aigbe photos. I hope the animal that did that to her has since been arrested. Too dangerous to live with humans.” David Damilola wrote, “So Mercy Aigbe was using her Victims movie to reveal her marital status.” A fan, @omobolabee wrote, “Marriage should be a safe haven and not a battlefield. This world is hard enough already! Say NO to domestic violence. #Mercy Aigbe.” Another commenter took a different stand. He wrote, “Mercy Aigbe’s husband beat her mercilessly. That’s because most female Nigerian celebrities are after the rich men so they can live large!” Another commenter, Odoziakwu Nwanyi wrote, “Whatever the case may be…please handle it off camera; off (the) public eye. This is a total act of shame on your part and that of your hubby. I hope you recover soon. Do what is best for you and remember your health is your wealth.”
One commenter, Ebunoluwa was emotional in her response as wrote, “Mercy, I love you no matter what. Please be strong; I feel like crying right now. I pray for wisdom for you to take the right decision, amen.”
Meanwhile, the couple in the eye of the storm, Mercy and Lanre, have resolutely refused to speak, despite several efforts made to the duo. (Punchng.com)
