Actress Tonto Dikeh, ex-lover Kpokpogri’s break-up saga gets messier
Published 15 September 2021
The break-up drama between popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, and her former lover, Prince Kpokpogri, has gotten messier. Earlier today, there were claims that the actress petitioned the Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory, to investigate her former lover, Prince Kpokpogri Joseph, for allegedly blackmailing her.
Due to this, it was reported that Kpokpogri was picked up by the Department of State Services.
According to the petition widely circulated on social media, titled, “Blackmail, extortion and obtaining by false pretences against a certain Prince Kpokpogri Joseph,” the actress claimed that her ex-boyfriend is a serial blackmailer.
In the petition, the actress, through her lawyers, claimed that Kpokpogri intended to leak her nude pictures online. She further claimed that her former lover borrowed N8m from her but only refunded N6m.
The petition read in part, “In June 2021, on Prince Kpokpogri Joseph started to court our client with a proposal to marry her. In the process, he would invite our client to his residence and sometimes he came over to our client’s residence. Unknown to our client, the said Joseph Kpokpogri (who our client later discovered to be a serial blackmailer) had other motives for courting our client.
“Our client now has reasons and evidence to believe that Joseph Kpokpogri had planted closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV cameras) at private areas of his residence, and had staged-managed those visits with the aim of blackmailing our client.
“She was surprised when sometime in August 2021, the suspect started demanding money from her and threatening to expose her nude pictures and other such documents relating to her. To actualise his demand, the said Kpokpogri started sending messages, documents, and files containing sensitive information and materials relating our client to her phone number while releasing some to the public.
“Our client believes that some of those information were obtained either through wire-tapping her phone and/or through such other means without her authorisation.
“The said Kpokpogri equally obtained the sum of 8,000,000.00 (Eight million naira) from our client under false pretenses. However, he has paid back the sum of N6,000,000.00 (six million naira) but has refused, failed, and/or neglected to pay the sum of N2,000,000.00 (Two million naira) outstanding.
“Our client’s Toyota Hilux van (2021 model) bought in her name is also in the custody of Kpokpogri which he has refused to return despite several demands.”
However, in a swift response, Kpokpogri, took to his Instagram page to do a Live video informing his friends and fans that he was not arrested by personnel of the DSS.
He said, “I dey my house, rumour say that I have been picked by the DSS. If you have any information on anybody, don’t come to the social media and rant and talk nonsense. Come out with you evidence, put it before the public. I want the general public to disregard that rumour that is flying up and down that I have been picked by DSS. That is why I came on Live.
“You cannot carry my vehicle and park it in your compound, a motor that you cannot buy till you die. Then you think you want to use DSS or you want to use the Nigerian security agency to do your hatchet job. This is Nigeria, we are governed by laws. If you have anything against me, go and tender it anywhere. Let them invite me, I will go there. I have all the abilities to defend myself.” (sic)
