S*x Video Tape Played As Evidence In Lagos Court
According to reports, the proceedings in an Ikeja High Court took an unusual dimension on Monday when an excerpt of a s*x video tape between a married father of three and his ex-lover was played in the courtroom.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the father of three, Peter Omokaro, is an ex-banker, while his ex-lover, Titilayo Nosa-Igiebor, is a businesswoman.
Omokaro who is in his early 60s had sued Nosa-Igiebor, 33, over her non-payment of an alleged N15 million loan he gave her during their relationship.
The tape was played when Mr Victor Okpara, counsel to Nosa-Igiebor led her in evidence.
The video which played for more than an hour showed Omokaro and Nosa-Igiebor lying in bed in a hotel room, agreeing to the terms of the `loan’ before engaging in sexual intercourse.
Omokaro could be heard in the video, before signing the agreement, saying: “I hope I am not signing my death warrant.”
He was also heard telling Nosa-Igiebor that he had no intention of getting the loan back.
The defendant’s counsel tendered a copy of the loan agreement in evidence.
The counsel told the court that Clause Five of the agreement exempted Nosa-Igiebor from repaying the alleged loan because of their sexual relationship.
NAN reports that Clause Five of the agreement, which pertains to waiver of rights, states: “Peter forever waives all rights to loan payback, forfeiting totally loan given if Titilayo agrees to and has sexual intercourse with Peter.”
Earlier in her evidence, the defendant told the court that Omokaro never gave her the N15 million although he promised to give her without collecting it back.
The businesswoman testified that Omokaro became vindictive after their relationship turned sour.
She told the court that the ex-banker intended to punish her for the soured relationship by taking her to court.
