Nigerian television presenter and vlogger, Toke Makinwa has refuted claims that she dated and dragged businessman, Alhaji Aliyu Abubakar to court for not fulfilling a promise he made to her.


You would recall that undercover blogger, Cutie Juls alleged that Aliyu who is an oil magnate is begging Toke Makinwa to settle the issue out of court but she is adamant on her decision.

However, according to Toke Makinwa, in a statement delivered by her legal team, she has never met Aliyu Abubakar before.

Per a report by topnaijang, a letter signed by Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika SAN, urged the businessman to take action against the malicious online platforms, claiming that his client did not have any business with the said publication.

Part of the letter read: “My client, Toke Makinwa is surprised to receive your letter in the above caption dated January 1, 2022, even after she had, on an earlier telephone call on the same issue, told Mr Feml Falana, SAN that she has never heard of your client’s name or his existence as a human being before his phone call.

”Perhaps you will consider redirecting your demand letter to the mischievous characters (that is, the online publishers) who, hiding under the anonymity of the internet and obviously aiming to exploit my client’s name and image to attract traffic to their worthless websites, authored and published the fictional association of your client with her, which speaking frankly, demeans her self worth as a woman and insults her psyche as a human being (as may have been the further motive of the fabricators and purveyors).

Aliyu, however, debunked the accusation. He also gave the Toke a 48 hours ultimatum to retract “the false allegation” or face a N50 billion defamation lawsuit.

Aliyu also said he never met with the actress and wondered why she would make such allegations against him.
