2Face Idibia Sues Tabloid For Libel - Wants N100 Million in Damages

Posted in: , ,

2face Idibia has instituted a N100million suit against soft-sell magazine, Icon Weekly, which had alleged that 2face committed adultery by getting a 'Lagos top banker' pregnant.

The banker who the magazine said worked at one of the new generation banks and was 2face's account officer, had in the report insisted that 2face was the father of her unborn baby and said she had every intention of keeping the baby.

Though 2face denied the allegations, it went viral with many bloggers and commentators choosing to believe the magazine and the unknown Teniola. Here on RML, we chose to take 2Face at his word [Read here].

A source close to 2Face said the story, which was found to be false, made 2face lose a very lucrative deal and caused ripples between him and his wife.

A Media/Entertainment Law Firm has therefore filed libel proceedings on behalf of  2face, at the Ikeja High Court asking the court to award their client the sum of N100million being damages for the libelous publication posted on the magazine’s online and print platforms.

Icon weekly is said to have approached 2face’s team for discussions on a possible out of court settlement.
