The war between Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh and her ex husband, Olakunle Churchill, is far from over.
Mr Churchill has now written a petition to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammad Adamu, against the actress. In the petition, he accused his former wife of selling his Toyota Prado SUV vehicle worth N22 million with illegal car documents.
The letter, dated April 4 was submitted to the IGP through his lawyer, Ace Solicitors, and he made the acknowledged copy available on social media.
In the petition, Churchill accused Dikeh of forging the car documents used in selling the vehicle without consulting him or his organization, Big Church Group through which the vehicle was bought initially.
The petition read in part: “The car was bought for domestic use of the family, particularly in view of the fact that Ms Tonto Dikeh-Churchill (as she then was) had just put to bed.
“The car was bought in the name of our client’s company as a result of the partnership our client’s company had with Toyota at the material time.
“When the marriage broke down irretrievably, Miss Tonto Dikeh made away with the said vehicle and sold the vehicle to unknown person(s).
“This is without the consent of our client or the company, and without a proper paperwork and change of ownership.
“Sir, this complaint has become imperative not for the purpose of recovering the said vehicle from Tonto Dikeh or any third party, but for record and documentation purposes.
“It is to absolve our client and Big Church Group Limited of any liability in the event of the said vehicle being used for any illegal purpose, as our client is not aware of who the vehicle was sold to.”
However, in what appears to be a swift reaction to the accusations, the actress said on her IG page: “Little by little the truth is coming out, and we all come out. Please keep shooting yourself on the leg, I am here for it.”
