BBNaija S6: Pere’s team debunks domestic violence rumours


Team for Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Pere, has debunked rumours that claimed that the contestant engaged in domestic violence.

In a statement on Pere’s Instagram page on Friday, the team announced that Pere has never been violent all his life and dismissed the claims as “baseless speculations.”

Weeks after Pere came into the show, some media outlets (not The PUNCH) had claimed that the 36-year-old actor had beat his ex-wife till she had a miscarriage.

Dispelling the rumours, the statement read, “Over the past week, a number of media outlets published materials containing false allegations that aim to damage the reputation of Pere.

“In those publications, he was falsely accused of being abusive in his personal life. They attached a false image of an individual just to make their case look legit. The said materials make baseless speculations as to who Pere is as an individual.

“Pere has never been violent all his life and the image being portrayed was a picture with his friend, a colleague who’s happily married. These types of false information do not affect Pere alone but the innocent friend who’s just showing support to him.”

The statement also faulted the media platforms for reposting the news without verifications, revealing that legal steps are being taken.

“We’re currently taking legal steps to each media platform that are involved in this defamation of character. A defamation matter is defined in section 373 of the criminal code as a matter likely to injure the reputation of any person by exposing him to hatred, contempt or ridicule, or likely to damage any person in his profession or trade by injury to his reputation,” the statement revealed.
