The Cable reports that while the OAP was hosting a meet & greet for her best-selling memoir, “On Becoming” in London, after being asked to seize all promotions of the book by Ayida’s lawyer, she was served the lawsuit.
It is easy to deduce that Ayida’s lawyer’s, Carter-Ruck, a top UK firm that specializes in defamation and Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP, representing him in Nigeria, made the move as Makinwa has continued to promote and sell her book.
As earlier reported, Ayida revealed his intentions to take legal actions against his ex-wife over the content of her memoir which his lawyers described as containing “defamatory words.”
According to them, On Becoming is an “exaggerated fabrication.”
The Cable also reports that Ayida through his lawyers, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP, initiated the proceedings on February 7 at the Lagos judicial division of the high court, Lagos state.
The fitness guru is also reportedly suing the publishers of the book, Kachifo Limited.
The legal documents also revealed that Ayida has asked the courts to donate the proceeds to four charities which will be nominated by him.
