A Nigerian lawmaker, Hon. Dickson Tarkighir, has threatened to file a ₦10 billion lawsuit against BBNaija star Venita Akpofure and the show organizers for defaming the TIV tribe.

Hon. Dickson, who represented Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency in Benue State in the House of Representatives, took to Facebook to express his grievance with Venita and BBNaija organizers over a statement she made.

The 36-year-old actress had claimed that Tiv men give their wives to visitors for ‘entertainment purposes,’ implying that they allow their wives to sleep with their guests for entertainment.
