TikToker jailed for defaming Eniola Badmus accuses police of seizing her phone — despite court’s order

Published

Ego Okoye, the TikTok lady who was sentenced to jail for defaming Eniola Badmus, has accused the Lagos police of seizing her mobile phone “despite a court’s order”.

Last month, the TikToker alleged that Badmus, the Nollywood actress, ran a prostitution syndicate with a special preference for ladies who had gone under the knife.

During police interrogation, Okoye apologised to the actress, saying a friend offered her N200,000 to defame her.

Badmus, however, rejected the apology and took the matter to court.

Last Wednesday, a federal high court in Lagos sentenced Okoye to three years imprisonment with the option of a fine of N150,000.

But in a now-viral video, Okoye claimed the police seized her phone and allegedly refused to obey the court’s order.

She alleged that since meeting the condition set aside by the court for her freedom, the Ikeja police have refused to return her seized mobile phone.

“I have been out for like a week, but my phone has been held down by the police,” she cried out.

“Ikeja headquarters police, to be precise. I have literally been telling them that the matter has been resolved in court.

“I was given a fine which I have paid. And the court has been like ‘Okay my things should be given to me’ because the case has been resolved.

“I have been asking the police to give me my phone. They have held down my phone for the past one week. I do not have access to money. I need to get to the hospital. Please give me my phone, but they have been turning me. I do not know why they have held my phone down up to this time.”

Mother of popular Hausa musician, Rarara, regains freedom

The mother of the famous Hausa political singer, Dauda Adamu Kahutu, popularly known as Rarara, has been freed by bandits.

The news of her release was confirmed by Rarara, on his verified Instagram handle on Wednesday morning.

Details about the release of the 75-year-old Raraya mother are unclear, but unconfirmed reports indicate that a ransom of millions of naira was paid for her freedom.

Recall that Rarara’s mother, Hajiya Hauwa’u Adamu, was kidnapped on June 28, 2024, from her residence in Kahutu village. According to a source, the incident occurred around 1:00 am, shortly after a large group of bandits armed with AK-47 rifles invaded the village.

“The bandits stormed the village barefoot and operated for a few minutes. Upon their arrival in the village, the bandits went straight to the residence of the victim and picked only her, ignoring other people they met in the house.

Following the abduction, police authorities in Katsina State announced that two suspects have been arrested for questioning.

“Upon receipt of the report, promptly, the DPO Danja led a team of operatives to the scene with a view to arresting the culprits and unhurt rescue of the victim,” the spokesman of the Katsina Police Command Abubakar Sadiq said.

“During investigation, two (2) suspects were arrested for questioning. Further development will be communicated in due course as the investigation proceeds,” he added.

Ini Dima-Okojie reveals that her fibroids have returned 3 years after surgery

Three years after undergoing invasive surgery to remove fibroids, Nigerian actress Ini Dima-Okojie has announced that the fibroids have returned.

Taking to Instagram on July 17, 2024, the actress addressed her followers and fans and updated them about the challenges she’s facing and her plans moving forward.

She explained, “I want to share something important with you today. If you’ve been following me, you would probably know that before the end of 2020, I had a myomectomy, which is an evasive surgery to take out fibroids. The surgery was successful; my doctor removed every single fibroid and I healed well. It’s been 3 years since the surgery and unfortunately, the fibroids are back.”

Acknowledging the emotional toll of this setback, she admitted that the news has been hard on her, adding that she has no intentions of undergoing fresh surgery to have them removed.

“It’s very disheartening and it hasn’t been the easiest couple of months but I’m okay. I’ve come to terms with it, and I definitely don’t want to do another surgery anytime soon. This time I want to take a holistic approach towards shrinking the fibroids,” she said.

The actress added, “I just thought it was important to share and it wasn’t easy. I remember the first time I shared my story and how many women felt seen and many people shared their stories with me.”

Ini Dima-Okojie highlighted the importance of raising awareness about fibroids, particularly among black women.

“Too many black women go through this and it wasn’t being talked about enough and it’s still not being talked about enough. I don’t even know if a remedy is being found for it. I’m going to be paying for 20 women to get their screening done; it’s very important,” she said.
