More reactions trail latest updates on Dr. Funmilayo vs. Bola rape case

Popular Twitter user, Dr. Funmilayo appears to be a man of his words, as he has shown up with the “legal steps” he promised his accuser, Bola Aseyan. 

On Friday, he posted on the microblogging site, screenshots of the legal documents he served Bola on the charge of defamation. He explained that he emailed the documents to her but he is yet to get a response, prompting him to post it on social media, in case she missed it.

In a series of tweets last week, Bola Aseyan had accused Dr. Funmilayo of raping and emotionally abusing her in their relationship. While awaiting his reply, two Twitter users doubted her claims, accusing Bola of being a violent individual known for spinning webs of lies and seeking attention.

Dr. Funmilayo in a 3-part response denied the allegation, declaring that they had two sexual encounters; one in which they were heavily drunk and the other was consensual. He stated that she was not a resident in the United Kingdom and that he paid for her visa costs to travel to the United Kingdom.

According to the legal documents published, the accused is demanding a sum of £10,000 in compensation, a written apology, a retraction of the accusations, erasure of defamatory statements against him; all within 7 days from the 2nd of July, 2020.   


Nigerians are cackling at the development and several users on social media are pondering on how Bola would raise such a large sum of money in such a short period of time.


Some have pointed out that rape accusations should not be taken lightly and people who resort to false accusations in order to smear the name of an individual should be prosecuted.


Some other Nigerians have also turned attention to feminists on the micro-blogging site, saying that they should take up the responsibility of helping Bola raise the money for damages since they are known to champion such cases.  


Bola is yet to respond to the latest update, although she had earlier reported that she would be taking legal actions on the case as well and is in cooperation with the police.
