The Lagos State High Court at the Tafawa Balewa Square has ordered famous On Air Personality, Omotoke Makinwa, to pay her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, N1m damages for defamation.

Justice Olukayode Ogunjobi said Makinwa and the publisher of her biography titled, ‘On Becoming,’ in which she defamed Ayida, should each pay N500,000 to Ayida.

The judge ordered Makinwa and Kachifo Limited to pay the money to “any charity organization of the claimant’s choice.”

The judge added that the defendants must within 30 days of the judgment remove from the unsold copies of ‘On Becoming’ portions containing defamatory words against Ayida.

The court judgment came three years after Ayida, through his lawyer, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), dragged Makinwa and Kachifo Limited to court, demanding N100m in damages and a perpetual injunction halting further publication of ‘On Becoming.’
