Okoye, who was arrested for spreading derogatory allegations about actress Eniola Badmus, admitted that she did so because a friend, Fortune Ibe, promised to pay her N200,000.

Okoye was shown in a video recording apologizing for her behavior, saying she needed the money to pay her house rent and that desperation drove her to act in such a way.

That was what prompted the video. I am so sorry; I just did that because I was desperate to pay my house rent. I just did it because of the money.

Meanwhile, following Okoye’s arrest, Badmus rejected pleas to settle the matter out of court as she insisted on charging her for maligning her hard-earned reputation.
