Aliko Dangote’s $30,000 lawsuit against his erstwhile American mistress, identified as Autumn Spikes appears to have triggered more revelations about the duo’s past secret affair.
Recall the lady, Spikes, also known as @Allarounda1 on social media had shared a video early this month which showed what appeared to be the buttocks of the richest man in Africa.
In a civil suit filed in an American court in Miami, Florida, Dangote is seeking compensation up to the tune of $30,000 from his erstwhile mistress over the leaked video, claiming it has smeared his public image.
According to reports, he appeared to have filed the suit under a pseudonym, John Doe.
Also, the charges were reportedly signed with an alias that says ‘AD’, which presumably are initials for Aliko Dangote, against the woman.
Allarounda1 has now taken to Instagram to share a subpoena and further disclosed how Dangote’s legal team allegedly offered to pay her and make her sign a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) about her intimate relationship with the billionaire.
Spikes, according to the post, said about a month ago she was offered some money to sign an NDA which she refused.
“I was insultingly offered ($)15k and ($) 2,500 a month to sign an NDA but I declined. I gained legal counsel in which we countered his offer. Mind you his first initial offer wasn’t disclosed in the terms of his proposed NDA.
“Therefore I was pressured and influenced to sign. Which was already a violation of his own NDA. He denied knowing me and our relationship to his lawyers and we’re asked for proof of our affair…now I’m being sued for extortion?” Spike wrote on Instagram.
Spikes also threatened to release new angles to their past affair in retaliation to Dangote’s lawsuit against her.
Many have said with this relationship saga and subsequent disclosures that pitched Dangote against his former side chick, the world is about to know the other side of the businessman in ‘the other room’ as against his business acumen in the public domain which has dominated African trade and businesses in the past decades.
