Chef Dammy’s pastor sued by Ekiti government, demands N10 million damages

Reports indicate that Chef Dammy’s pastor, Pastor Jeremiah, is being sued by the Ekiti government for damages on behalf of the chef.

Chef Dammy, also known as Damilola Adeparusi, has filed a lawsuit for infringement of rights against Jeremiah Adegoke and the Ekiti State Police Command at the Ekiti State High Court in Ado Ekiti, Nigeria.

The lawsuit was submitted by the Directorate of Citizens Rights (DCR) at the Ekiti State Ministry of Justice.

The DCR is also seeking a court order to prevent Mr. Adegoke and the police from detaining Chef Dammy. Additionally, they are requesting that Chef Dammy, who gained fame after her unsuccessful attempt to break a Guinness World Record, be awarded N10 million in damages.

This legal action comes shortly after Chef Dammy was reportedly arrested on the instructions of Mr. Adegoke, her pastor.

In October, the 24-year-old chef expressed concerns about alleged harassment and constant threats from individuals she referred to as “people of God” and her pastor, igniting the conflict between them.

The Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) 300-level Mass Communication student said that she had been intimidated and harassed, which had left her constantly afraid for her life.

It’s unclear exactly what the chef and her once-supportive pastor were fighting about, but it seems like their disagreement stemmed from the unsuccessful cook-a-thon.

The lawsuit seeks a declaration that the continued harassment, molestation, threat of arrest, and intimidation by the pastor, allied with Mr Samuel and the Nigerian police, infringes on the applicant’s fundamental human rights.

The lawsuit further demands a restraining order preventing Chef Dammy’s arrest and seeks a compensation of N10 million for aggravation and damages.
