Eniola Badmus, a Nollywood actress, has addressed the jail sentence of Okoye Blessing Nwakego, a Nigerian TikToker who defamed her.
Eniola had previously arrested Okoye for claiming that she is a pimp and demanded that Okoye substantiate and prove the allegation in court.
Okoye was recently sentenced to three years imprisonment with the option of a N100,000 fine by a federal high court in Lagos on charges of cyberstalking.
Eniola took to Instagram to question why people engage in defaming others without facts and evidence.
She also shared her own experiences of being body-shamed and trolled for her political choices, emphasizing that celebrities are human beings who should be respected.
Eniola highlighted the importance of recognizing the impact of our words on others and exercising freedom of speech responsibly. She concluded by urging people to spread love.
She wrote: “I will like to address an issue that has been plaguing social media platforms and online communities: defamatory statements about me.
“How do you wake up, go on social media and pull people down by making false/negative comments about them and still expect Mercy from God? This is someone you do not even know! Common!
“You have no single fact/evidence but will sit behind your phones and make a smooth video defaming my personality. Why?
“When I was plus size, it was the height of body shaming, now on my fitness journey, same negative comments, when I made my political choice, the same negatives. Guys, let people live their lives and respect them for it. Some of us have muscle to keep it going, how about those that can’t and silently struggle with depression and low self-esteem?
“We celebrities are human, we have blood running through our veins like you. No one judges your choice or approach to life in your corner, so why judge on personal and human actions?
“More often than not, I ignore these comments or don’t even bother reading them but sometimes, it hits badly and you truly and really want to set an example.
“I am aware that defamation is a serious matter and can have severe consequences both legally and socially. It is essential to recognize the impact of our words on others and the responsibilities that come with expressing our opinions publicly. While freedom of speech is a fundamental right, I think it should be exercised responsibly and with consideration for the potential harm it may cause. Above all let’s spread love”
