Chinenyenwa ‘Chichi’ Desire Okoebor of Big Brother Naija has filed a lawsuit against Josephina ‘Phyna’ Otabor for alleged defamation of character.
She claims that Phyna’s statements from the most recent BBN ‘Level Up’ reunion are defamatory, and this is the basis for her lawsuit.
On the program, Phyna and Chichi got into a furious fight about Chichi’s alleged abandonment of her “husband and children” in Benin City, which she said led to the death of one of her kids.
According to Chichi’s counsel, Phyna’s remark was clearly defamatory, and none of the things she accused Chichi of ever occurred.
Chichi’s move earned her praise, as netizens were aware that Phyna had gone too far.
In addition to emphasizing her remarks from the show, she used Snapchat to charge Chichi with poisoning her friend in Cyprus before leaving.
Many Nigerians responded to the tense internet incident involving Chichi and Phyna, including Tacha of BBNaija Pepper Dem. Tacha complained about Phyna using Chichi’s deceased parents and child as launching pads on Twitter. The former BBN star asserts that dead relatives are off-limits.
If the initial retraction condition is not met, the BBNaija star is prepared to file an N100 million lawsuit against her colleague and see it through.
The reality TV star and her legal representatives refuted both of the untrue allegations. The conditions were given down by her attorneys, who demanded that Phyna withdraw her claims across all of her social media sites, publish her retraction in three reputable newspapers, and pay damages in the amount of 100,000,000 naira.
These accusations are based on images that went viral in January 2023. People believed Chichi’s husband and toddler in those photos since they showed her with them.
She denied being married and having kids on the June reunion episode. She made it clear that the man in the photo was not her spouse but rather her father’s youngest sibling.
According to Chichi’s attorneys, Phyna’s accusations and slanderous remarks have severely harmed the celebrity and caused her to lose multiple endorsement deals and collaborations.
As of the time this news piece was published, Phyna had not yet made a statement in response to the case.
