Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has lashed out at journalist Azuka Ogujiuba for comments she made about her on show “Hot Topics.”
Azuka had on the show said Tonto Dikeh lied about being abused by her ex-husband Olakunle Churchill.
She had said she had video evidence to back up her claims, which she arrived at after meeting with both Tonto and her ex-husband at different times.
However, Tonto Dikeh on her Instagram on Wednesday said Azuka’s claims aren’t true.
She claimed Azuka was offered a lot of money to manipulate what she said, and she was indeed abused.
She posted a series of photos of her Instagram detailing what really happened, including screenshots of chats she had with Azuka, with the caption:
Firstly Azuka You lured me into this interview. You used someone I respect a lot to convince me to talk about the marriage incidences.

I said NO. That this is not a fight I want to entertain most especially because of my son. – Isn’t it funny that your boyfriend you sent to pick me from the airport is now flying around the country with Churchill! Coincidence? – You said that you went to Ghana for an event and decided to do a bit of
