Maje Ayida, estranged husband of popular media personality Toke Makinwa has hired lawyers to stop the sales and promotion of her memoir ‘On Becoming‘. Ayida’s
legal representatives have sent Toke Makinwa a “letter of demand” to
stop all forms of promotional activities and also the sales of the book.

Toke Makinwa’s estranged husband has hired Carter-Ruck a top UK firm that specialises in defamation and has clients such as Elton John, Chelsea FC and Simon Cowell. He has also hired Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP to represent him in Nigeria.

 

In
Toke Makinwa’s memoirs, Maje Ayida was scathingly portrayed and was
said to have given the on-air-personality an STD. She also wrote that
the fitness expert was a serial cheat and an adulterer. The legal
documents Maje’s reps sent to Toke Makinwa described the book as “exaggerated fabrication.
‘On Becoming’ was published on Sunday, November 27, 2016 by Kachifo Limited. Maje Ayida’s lawyers however said the popular book contained “defamatory words.
According to the letter of demand sent to Toke Makinwa, Maje Ayida was said to have  “requested legal separation” from her “within 6 months” of their marriage in January 2014 — “when it became clear that the marriage was breaking down”.

According
to The Cable, Toke Makinwa allegedly signed a legal separation
agreement in the month of July 2014. It was documented that the
separated couple agreed to separate by July 2015 but the book omitted
this part.
Maje Ayida’s law firm also noted the book brought “public ridicule” on its client, and stated its client’s reputation has been “assaulted, injured and damaged.

His
professional integrity as one of the leading health and wellness
practitioners in Nigeria, and his professional credibility built over
the years through dedicated hard work have been besmirched
”, the letter said.
Makinwa’s representation of Ayida in the memoir was “not a true reflection of who he is, his character and his background” according to the law firm.
Maje Ayida is now demanding that Toke Makinwa to retrieve already sold copies of the book and stop all forms of distribution.
Withdraw
from circulation all copies of the book and take immediate steps to
call in all copies of the book already distributed and deliver up same
at the place to be agreed upon by our client for destruction

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
