Annie Idibia accused of violence against brother's fiancée
Wisdom Macauley, who is a Nollywood filmmaker reportedly refused to pay the bride price of his fiancée of four years.
Annie Idibia is at the centre of an allegation of violence based on a video recording linking her to an assault on a woman named Doris, believed to be a fiancée to her brother, Wisdom Macauley.
The clip posted via Instagram and credited to Instablog9ja, saw the victim weep profusely over the actress' alleged hateful disposition towards her. This caused her to receive a pummeling from the subject and her mother who joined in an attack against her.
Speaking amid tears, Doris claimed that the pair alongside her fiancée began to resent her due to her request to have a formal marriage with Macualey. This will require the latter who already fathered two children with her and have lived together for four years, to pay her bride price.
Idibia's family were reported to be against this, directing threats at the complainant having made it apparent that she is not welcomed. She bitterly lamented about her fiance's persistence in reporting matters of disagreement to his mother who was reportedly a member of a party that broke her fingers in a recent disturbance.
Some of her sad experiences included the seizure of her child and a persistent battering by Macauley who was described as a chain Marijuana smoker.

The abused woman revealed that she was a comfortable make-up artiste before she met her fiance who seemed to have abandoned her without support. Her raggedy state can be perceived as a testament of her claim.
She is however not so keen about getting hitched to Macauley. Her preferred response will be for him to take responsibility of her and the children she bore in their years of living together.
Annie Idibia is yet to offer a comment concerning the allegations laid against her and family.
Social media users on Instagram were of the opinion that Doris plea for attention and claim of assault was an attempt to smear the reputation of the family.
