Nigerian actor John Okafor aka Mr Ibu went to the extreme recently after a lady claimed on social media that they had a one night stand.
Unhappy about the accusation, the actor reported the incident to police and called for the lady to be arrested, although on what charges we can only guess.
According to Mr Ibu, after his threat of arrest the lady ‘confessed’ she had never slept with the actor.
“The woman approached me to take a picture with me alongside her husband. She said she happily posted those pictures she took with me without any write-up. It was when a blog carried the picture that a write-up appeared from nowhere.
“I initially called the police to arrest the woman, but she came to my house with her family to apologise that she would not have posted the picture had she known it would cause trouble. She swore that she would not have a child if she ever wrote anything evil about me. I believed her. I told her that she did nothing wrong by posting the picture.” Ibu told Nigeria’s Punch newspaper.
The lady had posted in a group on social media that she and the actor had some steamy atopa action and even mocked his big tummy.
However, when Mr Ibu got involved she immediately changed her tune.
Speaking further, the actor, who is married, said he knows he has enemies who are always trying their hardest to tarnish his image.
“I know that I have enemies. They were the ones who put that write-up to tarnish my image, but they can never succeed because I have never stepped on anybody’s toes and I will never do it. I only want to upgrade people and make them happy.
“Some people are trying to pull me down. I’ve witnessed instances where hackers used my account to defraud other people and upload all sorts of nonsense about me. But I always tell people that I am not the owner of those accounts.” he added.
