Actress Laide Bakare has finally spoken out on the allegation that her unclad videos and photos were leaked on social platforms.
A blogger Gistlover had claimed on Sunday that Laide’s alleged lover in Indianapolis, USA leaked her nudes on WhatsApp groups.
But the actress did not address the matter until Tuesday when she released a statement on Instagram denying sharing her nudes with anyone or even taking a role to act nude.
She said, “My attention has been drawn to a fake and malicious news circulating in the social media alleging that I sent my nude pictures to a so-called lover who has now released same to the public.
“My initial reaction was to ignore this completely false and sensational story. However, in the interest of my family, friends and fans all over the world, who have been concerned and embarrassed by these wicked lies, I hereby state emphatically that these stories are completely false and the handiwork of some wicked and mindless people.
“I have never and I will never share my nude pictures with anyone. Not even in my long acting career have I accepted a nude role.
“I am an actress, movie producer and role model of international standing with over 2 decades of hard-earned reputation.”
Laide added that she is now taking steps to bring in “law enforcement and cyber security experts in Nigeria and Internationally to get to the root of this malicious act and bring the shameless perpetrators to justice.”
The actress noted that she would not be commenting further on the matter following advice from her lawyers.
“I thank family, friends and fans who have shown love and concern during this period. I love you all and I will remain unshaken,” she added.
