Published

on

Prince Kpokpogri, who is the chairman of the Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum, described his ex-lover as “Helen of Troy” and claimed their short affair was stressful .

“We dated for just  three months and it was more or less a living hell! So much has happened in a that short period that I let go it for the sake of the so-called relationship and my sanity,’’ Kpokpogri said while reacting to the news of their break-up.

Kpokpogri was thrust into the limelight after Tonto Dikeh reveal  him on his birthday on 27 June on her Instagram page. The once happy relationship crashed after a viral voice note and a phone call between Kpokpogri and a socialite was leaked online by an Instagram gossip blogger. Ever since the couple have been at war with each other on Instagram.

Petitions

In a petition against Kpokpogri  6 September and addressed to the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, Dikeh through her counsels in Festus Keyamo Chambers, Okechukwu Uju-Azorji, and Arinze Egbo made several shocking revelations.

1-Ulterior motive:

In the petition which was seen by this PREMIUM TIMES, Tonto Dikeh accused her ex-lover Prince Kpokpogri of being a fake lover. She said Kpokpogri carefully planned his way into her life.

They said, ‘‘That in June 2021 one Prince Kpokpogri Joseph started to court our client with a proposal to marry her. In the process, he would invite our client to his residence, and sometimes he came over to our client’s residence. Unknown to our client, the said Joseph Kpokpogri (who our client later discovered to be a serial blackmailer) had other motives for courting our client’’.

2-Blackmailer:

King Tonto accused him of being a hardened blackmailer. In the petition, Dikeh alleged that he blackmailed her and “stage-managed” their relationship for personal gains.

‘‘Our client now has reason and evidence to believe that Prince Joseph Kpokpogri had planted closed circuit Television Cameras (CCTV cameras) at private areas of his residence, and had stage-managed those visits with the aim of blackmailing our client. She was surprised when sometime in August 2021, the suspect started demanding money from her and threatening to expose nude pictures and other such documents relating to her to actualize his demands’’.

3-Fraud:

king Tonto  Dikeh also said Prince Kpokpogri under false pretense obtained huge sums of money from her.

They said, ‘‘The said Prince Kpokpogri also obtained the sum of N8m under false pretenses, however, he has paid back the sum of N6m but has refused, failed, and/or neglected to pay the sum of N2m outstanding.

4-Invasion of privacy:

She also accused him of planting closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV cameras) at private areas of his residence and had stage-managed those visits to blackmail

They said, ‘‘Our client believes that some of that information was obtained by wire-tapping her phone and/or through such other means without her authorisation’’.

They also added that Kpokpogri started sending messages, documents, and files containing sensitive information and materials relating to Dikeh to her phone while also releasing some to taddedblic.

5. Threat to life:

King Tonto Dikeh added that she was threatened not to speak badly about Prince Kpokpogri. She said, “that if she writes anything against the said Kpokpogri, her life will be on the line; that they know where her son is schooling and every other detail about her.”

6. Property seizure:

Tonto Dikeh alleged that Kpokpogri took possession of her Toyota Hilux van 2021 and has refused to return it despite several demands. Her lawyers said the Hilux van (2021 Model) was bought in Dikeh’s name.

Not one to keep quiet in the face of these allegations, Kpokpogri took a swipe at Tonto Dikeh . On his Instagram Live session, he said, ‘‘You rubbished the first man you married, you think you can play the same game with
