According to the report, the case filed by the 1st and 2nd Claimant (Dr. Churchill and Big Church Foundation respectively), the ex-husband of the defendant.

The actress’s charity organization was defamatory, baseless and sponsored to tarnish and damage the image his political ambition of the claimant, as he might have told her his intentions to run for House of Representatives in his constituency.

Churchill claimed that Dikeh’s interviews were aired, published and sponsored via broadcast channels, online media platforms, YouTube handles, notable print publications and even on her large 4 million followers page on Instagram, with a view to impugn his character and standing.

He is claiming N500 million as damages from his ex-wife, as well as demanded a published apology from Dikeh.
