Nollywood Actor, Yomi Fabiyi has dragged a woman identified as Eniola Omoshalewa Eunice, and instablog9ja to court for character defamation.
Nollygistv 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.
Nollygistv recalls that late 2017 Eniola accused filmmaker and actor, Yomi Fabiyi, of demanding sex in exchange for a movie role about nine years ago.

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 express way 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, Nollygistv learnt that the actor was not bluffing.
According to Saturday Beats 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.
Instablog9ja and Eniola Eunice claim ignorance of the lawsuit
According the newspaper, the microblogging site, Instablog9ja said that their organisation was not aware of the lawsuit. He said, “We are not aware of the suit, I don’t know anything about it. If we had been served the court papers, we would have addressed the issue.”
Eniola Omoshalewa Eunice also respond thus: “I am not aware of the situation and I have not received any court paper. I have not been served any letter and I don’t know anything about that. I don’t even want to talk about Yomi Fabiyi.”
