Actress Eniola Badmus has released a statement after the jail sentence of TikToker, Okoye Blessing Nwakego.

Badmus arrested Blessing after she called her out on social media claiming that the is a pimp who actively seeks out curvaceous and BBL-inclined women and links them to rich politicians.

Nwakaego was on Wednesday sentenced to three-year imprisonment with the option of a N150,000 fine by a Federal High Court in Lagos.

The TikToker was charged with a two-count charge bordering on cyberstalking.

Addressing the issue in a post shared on Instagram, Eniola wrote;

 “I will like to address an issue that has been plaguing social media platforms and online communities: defamatory statements about me.

“How do you wake up, go on social media and pull people down by making false/negative comments about them and still expect Mercy from God? This is someone you do not even know! Common!

“You have no single fact/evidence but will sit behind your phones and make a smooth video defaming my personality. Why?

“When I was plus size, it was the height of body shaming, now on my fitness journey, same negative comments, when I made my political choice, the same negatives. Guys, let people live their lives and respect them for it. Some of us have muscle to keep it going, how about those that can’t and silently struggle with depression and low self-esteem?

“We celebrities are human, we have blood running through our veins like you. No one judges your choice or approach to life in your corner, so why judge on personal and human actions?

“More often than not, I ignore these comments or don’t even bother reading them but sometimes, it hits badly and you truly and really want to set an example.

“I am aware that defamation is a serious matter and can have severe consequences both legally and socially. It is essential to recognize the impact of our words on others and the responsibilities that come with expressing our opinions publicly. While freedom of speech is a fundamental right, I think it should be exercised responsibly and with consideration for the potential harm it may cause. Above all let’s spread love”.

Meanwhile, Nwakego has now paid the fine attached to her conviction to avoid spending time in jail.
