Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, who recently clocked 40 has once again reacted to the viral ‘Red Dress’ issue which plagued her 40th birthday shoot.
Recall that the actress had been called out for wearing a bride’s dress in her photoshoot, a mistake which was made by her and designer, Rikaotobyme, who shipped her the bride, Lawrentta Adesuwa Sawyer’s dress.
However, with the matter far from over, the actress took to her social media page today to threaten lawsuit against the bride and designer for ‘accusing her falsely and trying to cast aspersions on her person’.
The bride had in a lawsuit through her lawyers accused the designer, Rikaotobyme and the actress, Mercy Aigbe, of fraudulent conspiracy to convert their client’s property for “selfish gains.”
Mercy Aigbe who took to her social media page on Instagram to express her reaction stated: “The lingering ‘Red Dress’ issue continued this morning as the bride threatened to sue the designer Rikaotobyme and also falsely accused me of connivance with the said designer …..( without substantial proof or evidence )
Having served Rikaotobyme a letter tru my lawyer on Jan 8 to issue an official statement on the above subject matter with clear indications that I have never met her before or transacted business with her which she failed to do, I have instructed my lawyer to go ahead and seek redress.
For the bride, in as much as I sympathize with her, I take exception to her accusing me falsely and trying to cast aspersions on my person.
I have given the bride tru her lawyers 7 days to retract the statement that read thus; ‘the sequence detailed above has evidenced a deliberate and fraudulent conspiracy between the designer and Ms Mercy Aigbe to convert our client’s legal property for selfish gains’. This is a malicious allegation. Whao, where is the legal property I want to convert. What a statement. I hereby demand a retraction and public apology, failure to do so I will have no option than to seek redress in the law court by suing her ( the bride) and the designer for false accusation and trying to defame my person…….😇😇😇”
