Mercy Aigbe has threatened to sue both the designer Rikaotobyme in the red dress saga and the bride.
In a letter addressed to the bride’s lawyers Capitalfield Attorneys, Aigbe’s lawyer, Nwokeji Ibeakokwu & Co., threatened to sue both the bride and Rikaotobyme for defamation of character.
The bride’s lawyers had on Tuesday made public a letter threatening to sue both Rikaotobyme and Mercy Aigbe to court.
Mercy Aigbe had no contact with the designer, the letter said, as she had contracted a stylist StyledBySeun to style her for her birthday shoot.
The accusation that there was a “deliberate and fraudulent conspiracy” between Rikaotobyme and Mercy Aigbe by the bride’s lawyers was termed as a “malicious allegation.”
Aigbe’s lawyers have asked that the bride tender a public apology, much in the way as the public threat to sue, absolving their client of all blame.
If the apology isn’t tendered within 7 days, the lawyers wrote, then both the bride and the designer will be taken to court for defamation of character.
