Popular comedian and actor, Ayo Makun, widely known as AY, has lodged a petition with the Delta Police Command following allegations made against him by a Facebook user named Agozi Samuel.
The petition, titled ‘Petition against Mr. Agozi Samuel for Criminal Defamation & Cyberstalking of Mr. Richard Ayo Makun (Also Known As “AY”) – Request for Arrest, Investigation & Prosecution,’ surfaced online on Monday, January 29.
The publication accuses AY of being involved in an extramarital affair with May Edochie, the wife of actor Yul Edochie, and holds him responsible for the marital crisis between May and her husband.
The petition, spanning five pages, highlights that Agozi published a 4-minute and32-second video on Saturday, January20, wherein he made several false and baseless statements.
In the video, titled ‘AY comedian where is your wife?’ where the allegations were made and shared on a Facebook page ‘Agozi Commedy’ with a following of over 23, 000 followers, Agozi Samuel made false, baseless and untrue statements knowingly and intentionally made at several intervals.
He said: “You slept with May. Because of you, Yul Edochie and his wife separated because you’re having an affair with Yul Edochie wife which is May. The general public did not know what is happening even the Court case that is going on the general public did not know.
‘’I told you on 31st night that in this 2024, I will be the one to bring you down for you to bring down in 2024. For you to bring down a home that lasted for many years, you made them separated, you made the wife live different and the husband. What are you looking for in somebody’s wife that your wife does not have?
“Your plan now is to go and marry May. I know all your plans, you want to go and marry May. You think I don’t know?
“This is what really happened. AY slept with May Edochie, that was why Yul Edochie and May Edochie are not together today.”
