Adegoke Jeremiah, the founder of Spirit World Global Mission in Ekiti, has threatened to file a lawsuit against Damilola Chef Dami Adeparusi over alleged defamation.
Last week, Chef Dami, who became a viral sensation after she completed a 120-hour cooking marathon in June, claimed she received several threats from Jeremiah.
The cook alleged that her life was in danger. She also asked the public to hold her pastor responsible if anything should happen to her.
But in a letter dated October 23 and signed by his legal representatives, the cleric demanded a retraction of the statement on social media and two widely read national dailies.
Jeremiah, in the letter, also requested the payment of a sum of N20 million for damages.
“In view of the incalculable damage you have done to the good reputation of our client, we demand a retraction of the libelous statement on all the social media, particularly your Instagram page, and two (2) widely read national dailies,” the letter reads in part.
“Additionally, we are demanding a sum of (Twenty Million Naira Only).
“N20,000,000:00 being Damages for the act of Defamation against our client.
“Take notice that you have seven (7) days from the date of service of this letter on you, the date of service inclusive to comply with our demand.”
He also asked Dami to respond within seven days; failure of which will attract a redress in court.
