Bridget Otoo Vs NAM1: Here Is What Triggered The Beef

Bridget Otoo

Celebrity Bridget Otoo has reacted to rumors that she was sued for defamation by Nana Appiah Mensah, the CEO of the now-defunct Menzgold Company Limited.

Otoo accused NAM1 of defrauding Ghanaians by selling them phony gold, stealing their money through illicit means, and then having the guts to sue her for defamation after calling her a “scammer.”

She expressed her lack of intimidation and readiness to face him in court.

“You [NAM1] sold Aurum Utalium (fake gold used by criminals) to decent working Ghanaians, took their money, and you are suing me for calling you a scammer. @Nam 1, we can’t wait to retell the Menzgold story because it was dying out in the media. I am in the office; come and serve me,” she stated on her X handle.

In an Accra High Court lawsuit, Nana Appiah Mensah sought relief and damages totaling GH¢1 million, among other things.

In connection with his ongoing criminal case, he accused Bridget Otoo of posting defamatory remarks on her X handle, according to a letter of summons dated November 7, 2023.

“In which country will a fraudster like @Nam_the_patriot be allowed to do this? This is a form of bribe for the police who are to arrest him to distribute money on his behalf! Smh F NAM1 is a scammer #Jail him #OccupyJulorbiHouse,” the October 21, 2023 tweet by Otoo read.

According to NAM1, Bridget’s opinions portray him as a criminal who “makes money through deceit by scamming; the Plaintiff is a fraudster, the Plaintiff is a dishonest person, and the Plaintiff deceives the public to obtain money.”

Considering that his criminal and fraudulent status is still being determined by the courts, he believes that “he has suffered great damage to his character and reputation by being portrayed as a fraudster and scammer in the eyes of right-thinking members of society and his business partners worldwide.”

In addition to the one million Ghanaian cedis in damages, he was requesting an injunction that would prevent Bridget Otoo from writing any more defamatory articles about him in the future.

He also requested an injunction for the defendant to remove any disparaging remarks made about him from her social media accounts and to retract and unconditionally apologize to him on the same platform.
