Yomi Fabiyi drags Instablog9ja, actress to court, demands N15m

 

Towards the end of 2017, a woman identified as Eniola Omoshalewa Eunice, accused filmmaker and actor, Yomi Fabiyi, of demanding sex in exchange for a movie role about nine years ago.

According to the woman, who is now a realtor, Fabiyi demanded for sex in exchange for a role in a movie. She wrote via her Instagram page, “This stupid guy, I remember my encounter with him about nine years ago when I was so passionate about acting. I was happy when I met him as he promised that he would feature me in a movie that very day.

“I was so excited, I quickly called my people that I wouldn’t be coming home as I was going to a movie location. Only for him to tell me that I couldn’t sleep in a separate room when we get to the location at Ikorodu. That we have to sleep together and he would have sex with me before he could feature me at all. He said it was a normal thing for all actresses. I was so heartbroken. You know what this guy did when I told him I couldn’t do it? He just dropped me along the expressway in the middle of the busy road in Ketu. I cried till I arrived home. My mama consoled me like a baby (sic).”

The actor has denied the allegations and vowed to get justice. Weeks later, when everyone thought that the matter had been swept under the carpet, Saturday Beats learnt that the actor was not bluffing.

Saturday Beats gathered that the actor has dragged the management of a blogging site, Instablog9ja, and the actress to court and he is claiming N15m in damages for defamation of character.

Saturday Beats was also able to obtain the court papers.

Speaking exclusively to Saturday Beats from London, where he was on vacation, the actor said that the reason why he took the matter to court was because people often feel that celebrities are easy preys for cyberbullies.

“It is true that I have dragged Instablog9ja and the so-called actress, Eniola Omoshalewa Eunice, to court and I am very sure that they have been served the court papers. The court writ came out on January 3, 2018, so I believe that the court would have served them the papers about three days after the writ came out. Everything is left in the hands of the court. I think from the day they were served the court papers, they have about 42 days to respond and when they do, the trial will start.

“Aside from the civil suit, I am confident that after the police carry out their investigation, they would also be detained for cybercrime and criminal blackmail. Social media has become so dangerous lately that anybody who has issues with you can just cook up falsehood about you and publish it on all these blogs and this could tarnish a person’s image.

“There are so many things I stand to gain by taking these people to court because I do not know this lady that accused me of sexual harassment. My image has been tarnished and it has affected my reputation and my business. I have lost some business partners due to the accusation; some are not sure if truly I am guilty of the crime, so they are uncertain whether to do business with me but I have some true business partners who know that I am innocent of the allegation levelled against me.
