OFFICIAL STATEMENT

A scandalous story is always a better sell than the truth. This story had all the elements of a great scandal: sex, secrets, money, power, and prominent figures. 

We decided to break our silence by doing an interview with CTV NEWS. In reality, the interview was over one hour but CTV was only able to air a few minutes and naturally, there would be some confusion and unanswered questions. 

We tried to be patient for the sake of some innocent Nigerians, but it seems our silence is being misconstrued as being guilty

We have been home since January 2, 2017, FIVE days after the media reported we were in jail facing a sentence of five years. Uncredible journalism is what fuelled this entire media circus of lies.

OUR PASSPORTS WERE NEVER RETURNED TO US, THEY WERE ILLEGALLY HELD BY A POLICE OFFICER UNDER THE COMMAND OF THE ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER UNDER THE COMMAND OF FEMI OTEDOLA. WE WERE ISSUED NEW CANADIAN PASSPORTS WHEN WE GOT HOME TO CANADA.
WE WERE NEVER ARRESTED. 

Sorry to disappoint, but we were never in jail. Six men without identification, uniforms or paperwork barged into our hotel room and said we were coming in for questioning. These men were under the control of a wealthy Nigerian citizen. Nigeria is the kind of place you can pay anyone to do anything; it IS lawless if laws are bendable by a fool trying to take the law into his own hands and play God. 

WE DO NOT OWN NAIJAGISTLIVE. 
                                                                                           
We do not own any gossip website. The only website we own is our lifestyle blog www.matropolitan.com

This blog, Naijagistlive used it’s anonymity as it’s power; the owner is anonymous, the readers are anonymous. It was called “the best website in Africa” but in reality, it was just a gossip website with unverified stories sent in by the readers. 

What non-Nigerians do not understand is that media is controlled in Nigeria. Newspapers and bloggers accept bribes under the illusion of “buying advertising space” to post a favorable story or remove a negative one. For men with money, all it would take is a simple phone call to the journalist to say, “Why did you post this, do you know who I am, do you know who my father is, remove it.” If the journalist refuses, the rich man can threaten to harm him/her therefore, the journalists tread carefully. That is what is really bothering this "billionaire", Femi Otedola, that Naijagistlive's owner is anonymous, was operating with freedom of speech and people couldn't pay to hide their indiscretions.

What the public fails to realize is that many people were brought in for questioning about this website and released but it was all kept hush hush. For some reason, our questioning was publicized and we were branded as the owners. 

It was a true witch-hunt trying to shut down this site and as pathetic as it sounds, the Nigerian police, misguided by granting themselves the title of the “Intelligence” Response Team, were picking out suspects from guesses in the comment section of Naijagistlive posted by anonymous commenters. 

JAIL?

We refused to write statements without a lawyer because the police did not even know our names let alone have a single document with our names on it.

We refused to co-operate even though six men were pushing us around and intimidating us with guns.

We refused to give the corrupt police officers a list of names including contact information of any wealthy men we knew for their own form of blackmail. 

Since we refused to co-operate, they put us into a holding cell at SARS (Special Anti Robbery Squad) with eleven other women in it FOR EIGHT DREADFUL HOURS. We have never been so scared. Nigeria is the type of place they can put you in jail, keep you without being able to call someone for help, and you can vanish. We cried all night. 

Sahara Reporters posted a story on "How Nigerian Police Randomly Kill Suspects At SARS Ikeja" and states "it may have become the address for extrajudicial killings." 

The next day, they did an illegal search of our room and electronics. If we had refused, we would've been put back into the cell. We never had a choice through all of this.

We were set to be released after the police DID NOT FIND ANYTHING RELATING TO NAIJAGISTLIVE on our two phones and one laptop. I urge anyone seeking the truth to check the police file, granted they even have one. At that point, the media became so widespread posting us as the website owners, that some wealthy gullible illiterates believed it without a shred of proof and put ransoms on our heads of millions of naira believing we “broke their homes” through this website.

THREATS.

The same police that questioned us had to put us under police protection because they would be held accountable if two Canadian citizens went missing. We were taken to a hotel near the airport and kept in a room with armed guards for eighteen days with little to no contact to the outside world. The police claimed this was for our own protection but really they were playing both sides for their own monetary gain.

FEMI OTEDOLA.

Unfortunately, our names struck familiarity with "billionaire" Femi Otedola who was one of the petitioners hoping to get the site shut down. To a man who does not know how to operate anything besides a Nokia 3110 phone, it was a case closed as to who posted a story on his wife “mistreating her staff in the United Kingdom”, that caused him to force the police to drop everything and chase a gossip ghost.

Literacy is an issue in Nigeria. They had police officers that were not technology literate, who didn’t understand basic logic, investigating a site they had never read. We were also verbally brutalized and slandered on Naijagistlive many many times and when we told the officers that, they were confused. 

Femi used our vulnerability as an opportunity to threaten us every day to admit to owning the website. He didn’t believe we didn't own the site until the website owner replied live in front of Femi’s chief of security and the second petitioner. Thank you Naijagistlive for shutting down your website to save us. The owner was tweeting, adding blog posts, and doing interviews while we had no access to technology, which is obvious proof that we do not own the website but simple logic is a hard sell to uneducated people. 

The Nigerian media failed to report people disputing that we couldn't possibly be Naijagistlive.

THE REAL OWNER OF NAIJAGISTLIVE TWEETED ON DECEMBER 17th, 2016 WHEN WE HAD NO ACCESS TO ANY TECHNOLOGY. OUR ELECTRONICS WERE WITH THE POLICE. THE OWNER WAS ANGRY THAT WE WERE GETTING THE CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK.

THE REAL OWNER OF NAIJAGISTLIVE CREATED A NEW INSTAGRAM PAGE WHILE WE DID NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ANY TECHNOLOGY. LAILASBLOG.COM REMOVED FEMI OTEDOLA'S NAME FROM NAIJAGISTLIVE'S INSTAGRAM RANT OUT OF FEAR OF BEING JAILED; THAT IS HOW CONTROLLED THE MEDIA IS. 


CORRUPTION.

Nigeria’s Assistant Commissioner of Police has no integrity and was operating at ANY command of Femi Otedola’s, by making his Abuja officers harass us and force us to write statements about a Lagos based website. Why would Abuja officers be in Lagos outside of their jurisdiction? Does the Nigerian police have the budget to fly between cities to chase an online ghost? No. Femi used Abuja officers because he has more pull with certain authoritative individuals there; just a taste of corruption happening under President Buhari’s nose. 

The unprofessional Assistant Commissioner heading this investigation later made sexual comments about one of our bodies, then asked for a phone number.

UNDERTAKING.

We were forced to sign an undertaking in a hotel room with the threat of maximum-security prison. We were told that if we do not sign, we will be taken to court where they will ensure we don’t get bail. There was no lawyer in the room; it was a Nigerian citizen who typed these ill-written documents. A criminal undertaking is supposed to be created by the police or the court. The papers did not even have an official police stamp, court stamp, or court location. They even made Babatunde Oyebode, the website builder, sign a paper saying “I promise to never enter Nigeria again” when he is a Nigerian citizen. 

VIDEO APOLOGY.

We were forced to make a video apology in our hotel room with the promise that Femi would allow the Assistant Commissioner to release our passports. That obvious forced and coerced apology was made without as much as a police officer, let alone a lawyer, present. When someone is reading off a phone and saying, “We freely volunteered to make this video and are not under duress”, it is an obvious red flag and chances are, it is not a sincere or genuine apology. 

We were promised the undertaking and video apology were for Femi’s eyes only. This undertaking and "confessional" video was sent to a blogger who is known to accept bribes, the very thing they tried to petition against Naijagistlive for, to further build their case of pinning this website on us. 

COURT.

We were taken to court without a lawyer or legal representation of any sort, we were never shown a charge sheet or any piece of documentation, and were taken to a back room to see the magistrate where our plea was not taken.

This was just another Nigerian scam to make money. Unfortunately, Nigeria is such a disgustingly corrupt country that the police officials, commissioners, and judges designated to FIGHT CORRUPTION are the problem, not solution. Administering any form of authoritative power to those lacking integrity will never fix your country

BABATUNDE OYEBODE.

This poor man, Babatunde Oyebode was slandered as the website owner prior to us and it was said he was only released when they found more suitable scapegoats to pin it on. It was reported that Babatunde had a confessional video. He never confessed. Instead he pleads and pleads that he is not the owner, his story never changes. He admit he built the website and was paid anonymously online; a concept that Nigerian illiterates investigating this case could not understand. He has been tortured, hung upside down, beaten, and starved, for a cyber bullying offence? All because of his back luck being born a Nigerian citizen. Where is the justice in that? 

He is now framed as a suspectedfraudster, kidnapper, armed robber, blackmailer, and international terrorist after the wealthy men in Nigeria paid the media and court officials to ruin this innocent man’s life with lies. 

In any civilized country, the viewers of this injustice would stand up to protect an innocent citizen. They would petition to release him as quickly as these men petitioned against a gossip site and demand the Nigerian police drop all the real cases to satisfy Femi exercising his power with bribes. Up until now, the media has not provided one shred of proof linking Babatunde to the website as anything besides the builder and hosting company providing security, which he has already admit to.

PICTURES AND VIDEOS.

WE ARE NOT IN POSSESSION OF ANY NON-CONSENSUAL OR COMPROMISING PHOTOS/VIDEOS OF ANYONE.

WE DO NOT PLANT VIDEO CAMERAS IN OUR HOTEL ROOMS OR ON OUR BODIES. 

These were rumors started by Femi Otedola and he achieved this by feeding the media malicious stories in the hopes of creating suspicion so that no one would intervene to help us. The tabloids fail to understand that media is a joke in Nigeria; it is never based on truths. Apparently, Femi can be vindictive when he does not get what he wants. More on this later. 

The types of people we knew could’ve had us out of any situation in Nigeria and safely sent home. Femi didn’t want that so he fed everyone stories that the police found pictures of each of them in our phones so they would turn on us and back up his personal vendetta against us. 

MEDIA.

I was done with the media when I read bogus reports of finding seven planted hidden cameras in our hotel room. How many angles would one need? Was all this done without an electrician? They reported a Northern man paid us $300,000 over PayPal. You get flagged after the limit; that’s common knowledge. They called us a “syndicate”, they called the police officers accepting bribes “the secret service”, they called Femi picking up his Nokia 3110 to dial a man lacking integrity “a sting operation”. What a joke. They even went as far as stating we, or our ancestors, must have been the Indian girls who fed Abacha the poisonous apple

BROKEN TELEPHONE.

This issue in all it’s entirety is the best example of broken telephone in the world. Everyone adds a lie or two and out comes a headline.  

The “news” went from reporting 274 people were cyber bullied on Naijagistlive, to 274 official petitioners, to 274 men we’ve slept with (dividing 274 by 2 to state we admit to sleeping with over 100 men each, RIDICULOUS), to 274 photos and videos found of prominent men. Which one is it because even I am confused? Where is the paper we allegedly signed to admitting 100 men? 

This scandal went viral quickly with the aid of Dumb-ebi Ifeanyi of Politics Nigeria contacting Avery Haines or Hainous, as I call her, of City News Canada pretending to have “insider information” and “exclusive content.” Two heads are sometimes not better than one as this was a case of the blind leading the blind, with two unserious "journalists" hoping to get hits. Now afraid of being sued, Dumebi Ifeanyi is claiming he had no credible sources and culled all his information from other sites. Funny, neither of these two journalists EVER attempted to contact me but they were reporting the most on this story calling us wanted fugitives with claims of bench warrants, arrested sureties, and charges filed at federal court. Where is the paperwork to prove it? If it is possible to file this bogus paperwork in Nigeria’s federal high court, then your justice system has no hope. 

Every other reporter worldwide has contacted me for my side of the story, for an interview, and to try and understand both sides before doing a write-up.

EMBASSY.

Legally, the embassy would not be able to intervene if we had a legitimate case pending. We did not sneak out of the country. At first, the embassy denied us stating that they “Do not intervene with local police matters.” The burden of proof was on us.

We paid a court clerk to get a copy of the court documents which we hadn't been allowed to see prior to attaining them.  After calling a human rights lawyer on December 29th, 2016, recommended by the embassy, the paperwork was translated from legal jargon to Layman’s terms, where we found that not only was the case not filed but our names were not even in the paperwork and simply added to Babatunde’s existing case. The bail conditions did not restrict travel, so clearly the police was holding our passports illegally on Femi’s command. If anyone was to hold our passports, it should have legally been the court. The papers were completely bogus and a true embarrassment to literacy. The charges were the kidnapping of Femi Otedola with no proof of kidnapping, no evidence of the threat to kidnap, no details of the alleged threat to blackmail, and the form of communication of the threat was not even listed. I couldn’t believe they held us for twenty days with this joke. 

I, Kiran Matharoo, am putting out the following statements to make it a record of public knowledge. 

The court documents posted here are certified true copies. The entire court documentation we received is 36 pages. We have only posted the relevant pages pertaining to us. What's not posted is: 
  • 8 pages of statements from Babatunde Oyebode
  • 3 statements from Kiran Matharoo that have been tampered with (additional writing by someone else)
  • 2 coerced statements from Jyoti Matharoo after refusal to co-operate being denied legal counsel
  • cache copy of Ivy Omoregie's blog post 

The bogus court documents with charges of kidnapping without proof they tried to pin on us include forced statements.

I have submitted a copy to my lawyer, one in safe keeping, and two photocopies with two Canadian government agencies. Any documents being produced by the Nigerian police or Nigerian court are tampered with by compromised officials allegedly accepting bribes from this point and this date forward.

I have been receiving threats that certain Nigerian citizens will attempt to forge documentation with the "Intelligence" Response Team and Federal High Court in order to attempt to involve Interpol to stop us from speaking out against Nigeria and Nigerians hoping to hide their indiscretions.

Nigeria is proving my point of corruption by threatening me to stop speaking out against the corruption in their "justice" system.

Nigeria's justice system cannot be trusted, so no, I will not be "facing the Nigerian court" in another attempt to demand money from me in the back rooms of courts for my freedom.

The police officers involved in this were also very interested in the contacts from my phone for their own form of blackmail hoping to threaten my friends to pay them out for my release.


I would also like to state that my phone was with the compromised police officers for some time. If anything off of my phone or my sister's phone is released online, including pictures of myself, pictures of my sister, pictures of others, or any conversations, documents, notes, or emails, then I will be holding the five individuals personally responsible and will have a further case against you. I have already provided affidavits with the details to my attorney.

    POINTS.

    After reviewing the court documents, my lawyer stated that there was absolutely nothing in the paperwork and had it not been for us being in a corrupt country lacking regulation of enforced laws, no court would be able to hold us off this bogus documentation where our names were not listed but simply added to an existing case against a Nigerian, no evidence is provided linking us to any crime, and there is not even evidence in the court documents of an actual crime with sufficient evidence to back up the claims of the complainants.

    To the simple-minded Nigerians complaining that “If a Nigerian was arrested in Canada, they would never be kept in a hotel or helped by the embassy.” 

    You cannot even begin to compare the two because Canada has structure, enforced laws, a just judicial system, fair trial, and our police officers and judges do not accept bribes or try to hold anyone for anything without proof. 

    NIGERIAN MEDIA.

    We are told Linda Ikeji is the most popular blog in Nigeria. It is funny how media works in Nigeria. Linda Ikeji posted a story titled "Matharoo sisters charged to court for blackmail & extortion through Naijagistlive, to be remanded in prison if they don't meet bail condition" on December 23rd, 2016 at 3:05PM, using one Lagos nightclub picture of us, one throwback picture she got from a gossip site, and the criminal undertakings. There were no court pictures at that point and no pictures of us in handcuffs, contradictory to her writing we were at Yaba court. 

    Readers contested that we didn’t own the site and questioned why were there no court pictures to back up her claim. Clearly, this story was manipulated to a blogger who allegedly offers “advertising space” to post sub-par stories. 

    Embarrassed of herself, she posted thirsty minutes later, oops my bad, thirty minutes later, “Otedola vs NaijaGistLive: Kiran & Jyoti Matharoo pictured at court today(exclusive)” at 3:42PM with a court picture. The undertakings and court pictures were obviously sent in with a slanderous purpose.

    Linda Ikeji stated, “untrue stories were written of billionaire businessman.” If they were untrue, why would he be so worried to have the police force chasing the phantom of the operation? Femi's net worth has reportedly plunged to $550 million by Forbes, but Linda Ikeji failed to report that continuously calling him “billionaire”. We know paid advertising when we see it. She stated we issued an apology to Otedola days before we were forced to do so, meaning the person who sent in the story had shared their plans with her. If Femi spent as much time on his marriage or work instead of this bogus case, he wouldn’t have to be worried about what the media is reporting.

    Not one Nigerian reporter tried to message, email or contact us in any shape or form to even try to FIND OUT THE TRUTH before they posted lies. We are deeply ashamed as to what accounts for journalism in Nigeria.

    WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?

    Femi wanted to bury this entire issue, or maybe even bury us. You never know what someone is capable of.

    Otedola wanted to stroke his own ego like he always does and paint himself as a billionaire, philanthropist, loving husband, protecting father, and hero for taking down this slanderous website posting these married men’s indiscretions and giving them sleepless nights. We were depicted as sex workers, prostitutes, blackmailers, extortionists, and kidnappers. We have no criminal past but the world views us as criminals. What is our crime? Kidnapping a man we know?

    Bad news sells. We were easy targets to pin this website on. Claiming we have naked pictures/videos of men we use to blackmail through the site in order to make a bogus case appear valid in the eyes of the public was the motive to ensure it would be taken down.

    At this point, it would be a bigger embarrassment than Femi's actual post if he didn’t find the perfect scapegoats because he and the second petitioner had made a mockery of the police force by accusing countless people of being the owners of Naijagistlive. Each time a new person was posted as the"owner", it was posted with lies of confessions and proof that no one ever saw. 

    Femi Otedola wanted to set a precedent and make an example of us publicly, which is why the undertaking and video “confession” were posted. If he successfully pinned the site on two foreigners and put them in jail where they can't dispute what he says, no Nigerian would ever dare to post him or his family. 

    For many insecure bitter women unhappy with themselves, this was just an opportunity. It was easier for them to believe we are “escorts” turned “blackmailers” than for African women to accept that any of their men took care of us generously at their own free will. This was all made even easier with our jealous friends turned foes. Apparently, Swanky Jerry pointed the police in our direction when he was brought in for questioning hoping to pin it on anyone to save himself. 

    We have never needed to blackmail or extort anyone. The few Nigerian men we know are capable and would happily invest in any business proposition we bring forward, so why would we resort to blackmail? We get more out of Nigeria by being friends with these men and keeping it cordial. Even if we were to blackmail a Nigerian, we wouldn’t be stupid enough to go to Nigeria to do it. This was obviously a personal vendetta against us and Femi Otedola should understand that if we wanted to blackmail him, we would never need to go through a third party, gossip website, or take sneak pictures to do so…

    If you ever had the pleasure of knowing us, if we asked for your assistance and you did nothing but chime in to Femi’s ear, then we will no longer be protecting you; this is just the beginning. Come after us all you want, we’ve assured that even our absence will not silence us. We have always protected the people we know, but none of them protected us when we needed them. We even suffered through a holding cell refusing to give the names and details about these men. We STILL PROTECTED YOU when we didn't realize what was happening and who else was involved in this so please thank Femi the same way you thanked him for saving you from us when you believed his lies.

    We hold all of Nigeria’s secrets; we know so much about every popular man and woman in Nigeria so you all are lucky we are not the owners of naijagistlive.com, otherwise Nigeria would be completely f#%ked.

    PROTECTION.

    So what have we been doing for four months? Protecting ourselves. Never did we think we would need to update our wills in our 30s, but we did. 

    We have taken the necessary precautions and preliminary steps to protect ourselves with statements, preemptive police reports, affidavits with a list of suspects, reported threats to government agencies, and made sure to include the full names of anyone involved in this embarrassment to Nigeria, just in case anything happens to us while speaking the truth. We reported all the recordings of threats made by Femi Otedola when he invited us to his house this December and pretended to not be involved. 

    The world has always depicted Nigeria in a negative light and we have always defended it, having visited so many times and even attempted restaurant consulting there. I was wrong; Nigeria is a disgrace. 

    The corruption is so deep that each citizen of the country is like the frog that is slowly boiling to death in a pot, It's temperature is rising so slowly that the frog does not notice it until it is dead.

    Online hypocrites were engaging in the same act of cyber bullying us while trying to express their disgust for a cyber bullying website; senseless.

    The undertakings posted online worldwide say we should not come back to Nigeria but they want us to come back for a court date? Idiots. No embassy will grant us a Nigerian visa after that public contradiction. 

    Unfortunately, we cannot be promised a fair trial in Nigeria, otherwise we would love to face Femi Otedola in court, where every truth would be uncovered.

    To be continued…

    3. I read this from beginning to end and we all knew this was an obvious power play by Femi. It's sad you both had to go through this and it's shameful swanky jerry threw you under the bus. You both should do as you please. Bring all bringables down. Still my favorite two sisters tho. PS: I'm a Nigerian guy and I follow u both.

    5. i never heard about this story until now and i can see the powers at work behind this country....always knew this powerful men are wicked...
      i would have judged you bad but no sensible guilty person would go writing this long tirade showcasing anger at being wronged.
      i believe your stories and pray that you do get justice or peace of mind after this ordeal

    8. Your attempt to "clear the air" is laughable. Why is it so hard to admit that you sleep with married men in exchange for their "generosity"

    9. "Nigeria is a disgrace"...woah easy there tiger. Given the state of judicial system in Nigeria your statement is probably not far from the truth. Sorry you had to go through all that.Atleast y'all got to go back to your home country. The rest of us are stuck here in this never ending story of BS. But you can't say you didn't meet great ppl here. Anyways keep your heads up, live long and prosper. And yeah i'm with you regarding the Nigerian police fuck them!

    10. It cant be easy being held hostage ina foreign country but you girls were involved in a dangerous game youve been coming here for eight years and sleeping with rich men for money and flaunting your lifestyles all over social networks! Swanky Jerry is the guy bringing in foreign girls for a cut of the money maybe you can expose all involved because Swanky got a new Range Rover for snitching on you girls even though he was your so called best friend! Please let us know what part he played in this game brcause I know he is still bringing in more hoes aswe speak only last week he brought in that Kenyan girl with the big ass for some big guy which she flaunted all over ig and snapchat....

    11. Nothing New in all this long story and defence ish you putting up, Nigerians and expats to Nigeria know about all this before they come here. (risky country high returns)
      You took the risk, made money now you are making noise. Happy you won't be coming around again. Next time they want to be generous you guys will think twice.awoff dey run belke

    12. Hahaha! @awoof dey run belle. You foreign hoes need to stay in your country. Guilty or not, you hoes had it coming. I am very sure that you will soon be annoucing your reality show. How about you both stay off the grid and do somethint positive and meaningful with your lives for once. Everybody makes mistakes but you can't keep doing the same things and expect different results. Start a new life, stay off the scene, get a job, open a restuarant, go into freelance writing, date a doctor. Maybe you should let Elvis leave the building finally and not try to come back with that same old shit, its boring and for people that claim to hate mediocrity, its basic. Best of luck to you both.

    14. Very idiotic clearing of air. You guys are simply put Hoes that got burnt. You think you can blackmail these men and go free. You are lucky to be alive and peddling this rubbish story of yours. Get a life,

    15. You two better leave femi otedola and thank God you didnt die in Nigeria. Like you said people go missing in jail without even being properly registered. You were flossing up and down IG forgetting when you lie with pigs, you get dirty. Just be grateful you are alive, worse has happened to people who did less than what you did or didnt do.

She "only takes him out at Christmas ?" Maybe he's happy in this way, whore ! This is his mather's businezz ! You think becauz you see something part of something ? Shame on your evil widked tonge.

    21. But you guys failed to answer the question....how do you guys make your money to afford this lavish lifestyle?

      ReplyDelete
    22. Your remarks prove the accusations against you. Your actions prove the accusations against you. You deny that you would think to do such things and then you do a lighter version of the same things you deny you would think to do. You are slandering this man and his family but say that you wouldn't blackmail him . You say you wouldn't blackmail him and then so on to detail how you would or would not do the very thing you say you would not ever do. You portray yourselves as honest businesswoman but can't show how you are businesswoman , other than dick sukking . You claim that "if" you had wanted to bring forward a business idea that you could ? Then , why didn't you ? Why didnt' you have a business already ? Because you are professional dick sukkers and nothing more. You deserve all that you get , whores, you really do. Hope things are tough for you both , and i hope they get tougher.

    23. I'm sorry but something isn't adding up. How do you girls fund this lavish lifestyle. You obviously don't have a 9-5. Now you guys are in Dubai living it up? Or getting peed on?

    24. I dont believe any of this. There is more to the story. There have been stories about u girls for a very long time. Yes Im not from Nigeria but followed the story cause I found it shocking and entertaining. Ur statement is a little too late to save face. In my mind u two ladies are involved to what extent i dont know but people will continue to follow ur lifestyle on instagram but dubbed the prostitute sisters and have lil to no respect for u judging by these comments and everything else written about u. There is no smoke without fire and I have view the video of ur apology. If u did nothing wrong why make that video. U have been exposed and theres no turning back. Yes u have sex tapes and apologised on record so I ddnt need to read this entire bullshit statement. I find u girls disgusting. I am a huge supporter of the powerful educated women and going back to the worlds oldest proffession sickens me. U have zero substance. I hope and pray u change ur lifestyle and stop hurting innocent people. But karma is a bitch and u have already been labled. Damage is done girls everyone knows who u are and what u do.

    26. Stop the lies already. #newsflash there is no boyfriend with a private jet. Just various married wealthy men you sleep with. #newsflash at the polo club in Lagos Nigeria you are both known as the Indian prostitutes @jyotimatharoo and @kiran_matharoo. #newsflash the reason Anselm the restaurant owner wanted you both gone was because your reputation was ruining his business and that is why he did not extend your contract. The person who brought you two for the very first time to Nigeria via Chris and his wife wants nothing to do with you heauxs. He was the one That had a private Jet. its been finished between all of you for a while now. He dropped you so fast. Should I go on? Because I can. Yes you are beautiful, yes you play your field right and get expensive gifts from other people’s husbands, mine included! Just call it what it is. You are high class payed hookers. Did your runs not take you to abuja and cross river with a certain governor? Stop lying. You both have lied so much you’re starting to believe the horsestuff. You need to hear what these men say about you two. When you were in Cannes, Yeah you all had a good time. You made mini videos. The voices of a couple of Nigerian men heard at the end of one these videos. One was a Very distinct one. Based on all the comments that keep popping up on your IGs it is evident that there are more than just a couple of us that know your garbage filled false lifestyle. Those of us fortunate to be born with silver spoons do not trip over your flowery painted images. So we are not hating. This is what we live daily without showing off. It’s disgusting that you two ladies are too dumb to see that as you post images you not only expose yourselves but the men that you are having affairs with. Because I found out about my husband being in Cannes through you..
