RMD "explores legal option" against blogger Linda Ikeji

Popular Nollywood actor Richard Mofe Damijo (popularly known as RMD) has said he is “exploring the option” of taking  model turned blogger, Linda Ikeji, to court.

Ms. Ikeji, on Friday, posted on her popular blog about a “palatial home” in Asaba, Delta State, worth about N250 million acquired by the top actor as he turned 51 the same day.

Responding to the publication via twitter, RMD told Ms. Ikeji to go “and get a life.”

“It has been brought to my attention that one Linda Ikeji character who I understand is a gossip has put up a story about my N250m,” said RMD, who is the Delta State Commissioner for Arts and Culture.

“Ordinarily I will never dignify her type with a response but with the calls, texts (and) bbms I (have) received I’d like to sound a warning to her (Ikeji) to desist from fabricating stories about me and get a life.”

While admitting that knowing the worth of a property is “not rocket science”; RMD advised Ms. Ikeji to find a “dignified career path.”

“If you find a dignified career path and work hard at it you will be too busy and successful to spread unfounded lies about people,” RMD said.

Ms. Ikeji’s gossip blog continues to elicit angry reactions from celebrities.

Tonto Dikeh and Susan Peters are other Nollywood starts who had lashed out at the blogger in the past.

Last June, Kola Boof, best selling Egyptian/Sudanese-American author described her as “a desperate pathetic person who twists her posts into lies.”
