Maje Ayida, the estranged husband of popular TV personality and now, author, Toke Makinwa has taken a step further to file a lawsuit against her.
This is coming few weeks after he sent a letter of demand asking her to retract the words in her tell-all memoir, On Becoming, to stop the sale of the book, retrieve copies that have been sold and tender an unreserved apology in several national dailies which Toke blatantly ignored.
Now, Maje Ayida has instituted legal action against Toke, asking for N100million in damages over the book he claims contains defamatory words that do not represent his person.
According to The Cable, Maje’s lawyers began legal proceedings at Lagos High Court on February 7th. Toke’s publishers, Kachifo Limited are also being sued alongside Toke.
In his suit, Maje asked the court to donate any damages awarded him in the case to four charities which he will personally pick.
