Dakore Akande Threatens Legal Action After Being Accused Of Having An Affair With Senator Akpabio

Dakore Egbuson-Akande threatens legal action | fab.ng

Recent social media activity has thrust Nollywood actress Dakore Egbuson-Akande into the spotlight. The actress found herself at the centre of a controversy when an Instagram blogger, Gistlover made startling allegations about her personal life. According to the blogger, Egbuson-Akande and Senator Godswill Akpabio, the current Senate president of Nigeria, were involved in an extramarital affair.

These allegations were not isolated. Gistlover’s post included several prominent Nigerian women. Among them are another well-known actress, Ini Edo, and the celebrated chef Hilda Baci.

All these women were alleged to be mistresses of Senator Akpabio. The situation took a more serious turn when the blogger went beyond mere allegations and published what were purported to be the personal phone numbers of both the Senator and the women named in the post.

Faced with these damaging claims, Dakore Egbuson-Akande chose to address the situation head-on.

She issued a firm and unequivocal denial of the allegations, emphasizing her commitment to her husband and their marriage. In her statement, the actress denied any romantic involvement with Senator Akpabio and asserted that she had never even met the man in person.

Egbuson-Akande did not mince words in her response. She characterized the blogger’s claims as completely baseless and malicious; designed to tarnish her reputation and potentially harm her personal and professional life. The actress made it clear that these allegations go unchallenged. She announced her intention to pursue legal action against the blogger.

Egbuson-Akande stated,

“These are lies from the pit of hell. I am prepared for any legal battle because this time, you’ve targeted the wrong person! I keep to myself, mind my own business, and focus on my work; I will not allow anyone to tarnish my hard-earned reputation for the sake of clicks; I refuse to remain silent and accept this!”

In a move that underscored her confidence in her innocence, Egbuson-Akande took an unusual step. She publicly offered a reward of 5 million naira to anyone who could provide concrete evidence of her alleged relationship with Senator Akpabio.

The actress took swift action following her public denial. She released a legal document prepared by her lawyers. This document is known as a cease and desist letter. The letter demanded that the incriminating post be taken down. It set a strict deadline of 24 hours for this action. Also, the letter warned of legal consequences if the demand is not met.

Judy Austin’s Ex-Husband, Emmanuel Obasi Accuses Her Of Infidelity With Yul Edochie

Judy Austin’s ex-husband accuses her of infidelity | fab.ng

Emmanuel Obasi, Judy Austin’s ex-husband has shared some surprising information about her and Yul Edochie. Judy Austin is a Nollywood actress who is now married to Yul Edochie, a filmmaker.

Obasi made these claims in a video that has been widely shared on social media. He said that Yul Edochie and Judy Austin were romantically involved while Austin was still married to him.

According to Obasi, Judy began her relationship with Edochie while she was still living in the same house as Obasi. This means that Judy was seeing Edochie while she was still Obasi’s wife.

Obasi also said that Judy took things a step further. He claims that she actually invited Edochie to live in the family home. This was the home that Judy shared with Obasi when they were still married.

What’s more, Obasi revealed that Judy’s family knew about this situation.

He said that Judy’s family welcomed Edochie into their home, even though they knew that Judy was still married to Obasi at the time.

He said,

“The family accepted her and Yul. She was still my wife but was going with Yul to their family house, and they accepted them. A married woman. She is now making my life difficult. She told me she would make my life miserable using our children.”

These claims, if true, suggest that the relationship between Judy Austin and Yul Edochie began while she was still married to Emmanuel Obasi. This information has caused quite a stir among people who follow Nollywood news and gossip.

Emmanuel Obasi asked Nigerians to help him get custody of his children. He said he hadn’t seen his children for more than ten years. Obasi, Judy Austin’s ex-husband believes his ex-wife, has been keeping the children away from him on purpose.

Obasi thinks Austin is not taking good care of them. He believes she is more focused on her new family with Yul Edochie instead of their children. Because of this, Obasi is very concerned about how his children are doing.

Obasi wants to be with his children again. He told everyone listening that his children are very important to him. He asked Nigerians to please help him get custody of his children.
