Just a quick one to inform you that my client, Mustapha Audu is quite disturbed about the trending #Sugabelly false accusations against him and his friends, online, especially as he tries to align with the reality of the death of his beloved father.
While I plead with you to apply caution over the allegations, as he (Mustapha has already initiated legal process), I want to assure you that all the allegations flying online are baseless, fales and totally untrue.
You will receive next from me, in a moment, a comprehensive report of what really transpired between Sugabelly (Lotanna Igwe-Odunze), how she wanted Mustapha to marry her at all cost, and when that failed, she resulted to cheap blackmaik to gain cheap publicity to promote her blogging career, as well sending associates behind to ask for pay-off from Mustapha.
My next mail will reveal and contain shocking details, email conversations, confession of love, 'wild things', imaginations, Unclad pictures of her sent to Mustapha, in efforts to get Mustapha back, plus how she was 'rapped', and kept recalling such ugly experiences. The emails are well dated.
Kindly stay tuned.

When Marie Summers ties the knot next year, there will be one very important person missing from the congregation.
Because her daughter Danni can’t bring herself to watch as her mum weds Anthony Key – the man Marie stole from her.
Yet the young mum has forgiven Marie for the ultimate betrayal.
She says: “I won’t be going to the wedding because it would be awkward for us all.
"I can’t forget what happened, but I have forgiven my mum and I’m happy for her.
“The affair broke my heart and had a huge impact on me, but I’ve learnt the true meaning of the saying ‘blood is thicker than water’.
“You only get one mum. I never thought she would hurt me like that but I had a choice: get over it or lose her. I wasn’t ready to let her go.”
Danni, who is happy with new partner Damion Airth, split from Anthony after he confessed to having sex with her mum.
Devastated, she cut the pair off and left the town where she grew up. But the couple remained together and recently got engaged.
The man who was once her lover will soon be her stepfather, but Danni has let her mum back into her life.
She says: “People might think I’m mad for forgiving her, but she’s my mum and I love her.
"Nothing will change that. I thought it was just sex or a cheap affair, but they are in love and Anthony isn’t going anywhere, so I have to deal with that.”
Unemployed Danni first started dating him in October 2011, when she was just 17.

The police in Lagos have arrested a policeman, Corporal Yinka Oloko, who allegedly shot his wife dead in the Egbeda area of the state. The incident occurred at about 10pm on Tuesday in the rented apartment the policeman is living with his family.
Cpl. Oloko, who is attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja, had arrived home on the evening, and started to undress in the bedroom, with his wife sitting on the bed.
The corporal, while removing his pistol from the holster, was said to have mistakenly fired his wife on the lap, leading to commotion in the apartment.
Oloko, assisted by neighbours, was said to have rushed the woman to a nearby hospital, but she reportedly died before they got to the hospital.
According to PUNCH, a police source said that the matter was a case of an accidental discharge, adding that the suspect and his wife did not have any altercation before the incident.
He said, “It was a case of an accidental discharge. The police corporal was not careful in removing his pistol from the holster. When he got home on that evening, his wife welcomed him and they went to the bedroom.
“As he was undressing, he removed the gun and wanted to place it on the bed when it discharged. The bullet hit the wife’s lap. He was the one that rushed his wife to the hospital. She died before they got to the hospital. He was thereafter arrested and detained in the Ikeja Police Division although the incident happened in Egbeda.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Joe Offor, confirmed the arrest. Offor, who also noted that it was an accidental discharge, said the case was being investigated at the State CID, Yaba.
He said, “The policeman has been arrested, and handed over to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, SCID, for investigation. The incident involved him and his wife. It was a sort of a discharge rather than a fight. Investigation is still ongoing.”
