May Yul-Edochie Nigerian businesswoman and estranged wife of actor, Yul Edochie, has taken legal steps against an Instagram user Sarah Martins, over a photoshopped image shared during the Christmas season.

The Original Version Christmas photo  

 Last year December 2023 during the festive season. Sarah Martins took to Instagram with an altered version of a family Christmas photo shared by May.

May and her children were spotted in the original version, however, Sarah Martins went the extra mile of having Yul and his second family, Judy ,and son, photoshopped into the image. As if that was not enough, she proceeded to caption the photo: “beautiful family, as it should be”.

Weeks after the photo went live, May recently share court documents on Instagram while notifying the public of legal steps that she directed her lawyers to file a suit against one Sarah Chukwukere, with the username @officialsarahmartins, and would be taken against others who smear her image. See Post below

Apart from the photoshop incident, Martins was equally accused of uttering defamatory statements against May during an Instagram live session held with media personality, Daddy Freeze. 

May’s lawyer demanded an unreserved apology and immediate retraction of her utterances and publication on social media. The actress is also expected to issue proper clarification anytime her false utterances and publication resurface, and give assurances against repeating such in the future.

Upon failure to meet the demands spelled out by May’s legal representatives, Martins risks an N500 million lawsuit.
