Comedian AY files petition against Facebook user who accused him of having an affair with May Edochie
Nigerian comedian Ayo Makun has taken legal action against a Facebook user identified as Agozi Samuel, who made grave allegations against him.
AY filed a petition through his legal representatives to the Delta State Police Command headquarters in Asaba, Delta State.
He explained that on Monday, January 22, he received numerous messages from his friends, family, and business associates about a four-minute and thirty-two-second video shared online by Mr. Agozi.
Agozi had accused him of having an affair with May, the estranged wife of popular actor Yul Edochie, and causing their separation.
According to the petition,
“In the four minutes, thirty-two seconds video titled “AY comedian were is your wife” which was posted on Saturday, 20 January 2024 on the page with a following of over 23,000 followers as can be seen in Annexure 1 to this letter. The Suspect, in a mischievous attempt to generate traffic and view for his page and to gain cheap popularity, knowingly and intentionally made various statements that are not only false and baseless but also capable of causing annoyance, insult, enmity, hatred, public outrage and needless anxiety to our client and his family and exposing our client to hatred and public ridicule.
The said publication alleges that our client is involved in an extra-marital affair with one, May Edochie, the wife of Yul Edochie and that our client was responsible for the marital crisis between May and her husband. For the purpose of clarity, the exact false, baseless and untrue statements knowingly and intentionally made at several intervals by Agozi Samuel in the said video are reproduced below as follows:
“You slept with May. Because of you, Yul Edochie and his wife separated because you’re having an affair with Yul Edochie wife which is May. The general public did not know what is happening even the Court case that is going on the general public did not know.”
“I told you on 31st night that in this 2024, I will be the one to bring you down for you to bring down in 2024. For you to bring down a home that lasted for many years, you made them separated, you made the wife live different and the husband. What are you looking for in somebody’s wife that your wife does not have?”
“Your plan now is to go and marry May. I know all your plans, you want to go and marry May. You think I don’t know?”
This is what really happened. AY slept with May Edochie, that was why Yul Edochie and May Edochie are not together today.”
Agozie further stated that he decided to expose AY because he refused to apologize to Yul Edochie and his fans despite warning him on December 31st, 2023.
“Remember our conversation on 31st night. I told you that I will be the one to bring you down in 2024. Since you don’t want to apologise to Yul Edochie and apologise to his fans because you’re the one masterminding everything. What kind of wicked man are you? AY, what kind of wicked man are you?” Remember our conversation on 31st night. I told you that I will be the one to bring you down in 2024. Since you don’t want to apologise to Yul Edochie and apologise to his fans because you’re the one masterminding everything.
What kind of wicked man are you? AY, what kind of wicked man are you?” “And I will teach you and you will learn the hard way. Mark my word”
Speaking on the allegations, AY stated that they are “false, untrue, and baseless”. He further urged the police to launch investigation and apprehened Agozi for defaming, cyberstalking and cyberbullying him.
