According to court documents obtained by The Punch titled “Inspector General of Police vs Chioma Toplis ‘f’ aged 48”,  the offence was committed between May 28, 2021, and May 31, 2021.

The court document reads in part, “That you Chioma Toplis ‘f’ between the 28th and 31st of May, 2021, while residing in Nigeria, and being a social network user, and being under the Umuahia North Magisterial District and knowingly and maliciously published in your Facebook page “CHIOMA TOPLIS” the following: ‘Ur r****t father invited his daughter-in-law (now Ex) to Nigeria without his son’s consent and slept with her.”

Akwukwuegbu expressed shock at the statements allegedly made by Toplis, adding that she is sister-in-law. He also said he had no prior knowledge of the accusations she made.

Toplis will remain in prison until April 14, 2022, when the court will reconvene.
