Toyin Abraham hits back at Lizzy Anjorin

Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham has vowed to protect her son while clearing the air about her lingering face-off with fellow actress Lizzy Anjorin.

The movie star broke down in tears while addressing the issue with colleague Iyabo Ojo during an Instagram Live video chat on Tuesday evening.

The misunderstanding between Toyin and Lizzy began in 2019 when a blog reported that the latter was ‘held and searched for drug peddling’ during her hajj trip to Saudi Arabia.

Lizzy later accused Toyin Abraham of leaking the story to blogs.

Things got worse when Toyin gave birth to her son Ire in September 2019, with Lizzy claiming the actress was delivered of the child by an alternative medical practitioner.

The two sheathed their swords after the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) threatened to suspend them.

Old wounds were, however, reopened in a recent interview Lizzy had with social media influencer Esabod, in which she rained curses on Toyin, her husband Kolawole Ajeyemi and their son Ire.

Toyin was forced to respond in the Instagram Live session with Iyabo, swearing that she had nothing to do with the drug peddling story about Liz whom she said she has met just twice in her life.

Holding a Bible, Toyin declared: “Since I gave birth to my child, you have been bullying him. Let the whole mothers in this world come out and blame me for this single thing that I stood up for my son. Let the whole world blame me for this.

“I did not talk or say anything, but for this. I will stand up for my son. When the incident happened with Liz Anjorin, I did not know about it because it was during that time that I put to bed. They did not let me have my phone because I had just delivered my baby.

“It was after about two months that they gave me my phone and I saw all the messages, and hers was part of it. This is the Holy Bible that I am holding; let the Holy Bible judge me.

“It is so funny because Lizzy is not my friend and I do not know her; Saudi or no Saudi, I have never heard of it. How do I know her movement?”
