Chef Dammy was sued by her Prophet, Adegoke Jeremiah, just days after she demanded that he be held accountable if anything happened to her.
Chef Dammy said that she had been intimidated and bullied, and that she was constantly afraid for her life.
In a court petition dated October 23, the Pastor sought that Chef Dammy retract her previous comments regarding him on social media and in two widely circulated national dailies.
Prophet Jeremiah also requested N20 million in damages for alleged defamation against him. He gave Chef Dammy seven days to comply with the demands or face a court date with him.
The letter partly read, “In view of the incalculable damage you have done to the good reputation of our client, we demand a retraction of the libelous statement on all the social media, particularly your Instagram page, and two (2) widely read national dailies.
“Additionally, we are demanding a sum of (Twenty Million Naira Only) N20,000,000:00 being Damages for the act of Defamation against our client.
“Take notice that you have seven (7) days from the date of service of this letter on you, the date of service inclusive, to comply with our demand. Failure of which we shall not hesitate to seek a redress in the court of law.”
Our correspondent spoke with a representative of Busayo Sule & Co. Legal Practitioners, Ezekiel Oluwabusayo, who confirmed the authenticity of the document circulating online.
However, he added that the document was never meant to be released on social media.
Oluwabusayo stated, ‘It was supposed to be a private document. Who released it online? I also spoke to her (Chef Dammy), asking how the letter surfaced online.
“We served her the letter on the premise that she should retract the libelous statement she made on her Instagram page last week, that’s all.
“We wrote a letter to her, but it’s not meant for public consumption. We asked her to retract the statement she made within seven days. We are yet to commence the lawsuit against her. We may start the case after seven or fourteen days.
“Yes, the letter was from our chambers, but it was not meant for public consumption.”
