Mary Njoku reacts as Court orders Oxlade to pay lady in leaked tape N5M for damages

The lady identified as John Blessing had filed a suit before the court on March 15, 2022, seeking N20million damages and a declaration that the respondent’s (Oxlade’s) act of recording his explicit sexual acts without her knowledge and consent amounted to flagrant contravention of enabling laws and a gross violation of her fundamental rights to dignity, privacy and freedom from discrimination guaranteed under Sections 34 and 37 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended); and Articles 5 of the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights (Ratification and Enforcement), Act, CAP A9, LFN, 2004.
