Court bars actress Omo VC from defaming MC Oluomo

The High Court of Justice, Ikeja Judiciary Division, has issued a restraining order against Yoruba actress, Mariam Muftaudeen, popularly known as Omo VC, barring her from releasing further defamatory content against the Chairman of the Lagos State Park Management Board, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, also known as MC Oluomo.

The suit, filed on March 4th and granted by Honorable Justice M. O Dawodu on March 14th, through Adedotun Ajulo Esq. of O.O.K Owolabi & Partners, counsel to Mr. Akinsanya, seeks to prevent Omo VC from further publishing defamatory videos or articles about MC Oluomo until the court hears and decides on the case.

“The Applicant filed a Motion Ex-parte dated 4th March 2024 seeking the following reliefs:

1. AN ORDER OF THIS HONOURABLE COURT restraining the Respondent from further releasing defamatory videos and/or publishing libelous articles against the Applicant pending the hearing and determination of the Applicant’s Originating Summons against the Respondent.

2. AN ORDER of the Honourable Court granting leave to serve the Memorandum of Claim and any preemptive order as may be made by the Honourable Court in this suit on the Defendant via her WhatsApp mobile number: 07063943234 and her Instagram Handle: @omovc, by publication in a national daily newspaper and/or any other means that this Honourable Court may deem fit.”

Omo VC had previously accused MC Oluomo of threatening her life and that of her daughter in a lengthy Instagram post in February. She claimed to have a daughter with MC Oluomo, alleging he failed to provide for the child’s welfare and even ordered his security personnel to shoot at her during a visit to his residence.

When contacted, MC Oluomo denied knowledge of any child between them, stating that they had separated about two years ago and he was unaware of any child until the recent claims surfaced. He emphasized that such accusations were defamatory and politically motivated, especially given the upcoming elections within the transportation industry.

“I have said it before and will say it again that I am not aware of any child between Omo VC and myself. It is a political season within our industry and all sort of things like these are inevitable but for me, this is taken too far. It is defamatory and unpleasant.” Oluomo said.

Expressing his trust in the Nigerian justice system, MC Oluomo stated his belief that the court would uphold justice based on the evidence presented. He emphasized his commitment to abiding by the law and defending his reputation through legal channels rather than taking matters into his own hands.

“I am a public figure and law abiding citizen of the country. I have proceeded to court as against the thoughts of some individuals who are intentional at attaching unethical conducts to my name and those who like to stereotype transport workers as people who engage in unlawful conducts due to the character of some bag eggs among us which is inescapable of any profession. I don’t take laws into my hands and I believe in the process of the court to be defend my reputation. That is why I have engaged one of the young promising lawyers in Nigeria, Barr Dotun Ajulo to be my counsellor”. He remarked.

When contacted, Mr. Adedotun Ajulo, counsel to MC Oluomo, refrained from commenting on the court’s decision, citing the ongoing legal proceedings.
