The Big Brother Naija All Stars show has seen its fair share of drama, but the latest controversy involves a lawmaker who is threatening a N10bn suit against Venita and the show’s organisers.
Hon. Dickson Tarkighir, the member representing Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency in Benue State’s House of Representatives, has threatened to file a N10 billion lawsuit against Big Brother Naija All Stars housemate Venita Akpofure and the reality show’s organizers for “defaming” the Tiv Nation.
Venita had claimed on the reality show that,”Tiv men give their wives to visitors for entertainment purposes.”
Her claim generated fury among the Tiv people of North Central Nigeria, with many demanding for legal action against her.
As a result, Hon. Tarkighir has suggested that Venita and the Big Brother Naija brand be sued for providing her with “the mega platform to defame the Tiv tribe.”
On his Facebook page, he wrote:
“#Venita Akpofure- Slam a 10BN defamation suit on her, the Big Brother brand and its promoters, they provided her with the mega platform to defame an entire tribe and are equally liable for not disowning her.”
