Chioma Toplis, a Nollywood actress, has been detained in prison for her’malicious’ Facebook remark against Abia chief.
A Magistrate Court in Umuahia, Abia State, detained the movie actor at the Nigeria Correctional Centre, Afara, for slander.
The actress is accused of defaming the Chairman of Abia State Traditional Prime Ministers Council, High Chief Uche Akwukwuegbu, also known as BAWAS, on her Facebook page.
The accused committed the alleged act between May 28, 2021 and May 31, 2021, according to a court document titled “Inspector General of Police versus Chioma Toplis ‘f’ aged 48” posted by Punch.
The one-count read, “That you Chioma Toplis ‘f’ between the 28th and 31st of May, 2021, while residing in Nigeria, and being a social network user, and being under the Umuahia North Magisterial District and knowingly and maliciously published in your Facebook page “CHIOMA TOPLIS” the following: ‘Ur rapist father invited his daughter-in-law (now Ex) to Nigeria without his son’s consent and slept with her.”
While speaking to the press following the verdict, Akwukwuegbu expressed surprise at the words attributed to Toplis, whom he considers to be his sister-in-law.
He also stated that he is unaware of the allegations leveled against him.
Toplis has been remanded in custody, and the case has been postponed until April 14, 2022.
