Kate via her management sent a letter to the comedian to stop using her name. The actress also took to Instagram to call out Akpororo.
She wrote, “There is a thing called RESPECT in this industry. The sooner people recognise this..the better it will be for all. Do not take my smile and simplicity for stupidity! Notice of 48hrs is hereby given to the organisers to remove my name and image from all publicity associated with this event. Thank you”

Says military option can’t work
Former leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Chief Government Ekpemupolo (AKA Tompolo) has expressed a wish to meet President Muhammadu Buhari on the Niger Delta crisis.
Tompolo, in a letter to the President, a copy of which was obtained by our reporter, said the meeting would present him with an opportunity to tell President Buhari “my side of the numerous stories you have been inundated about me.”
The former warlord hinted that it was in the interest of the nation for President Buhari to employ dialogue, stressing that he should learn from the 2009 invasion of Gbaramatu kingdom and the resultant offer of amnesty when military option failed.
Following his cases in several courts, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki has insisted that he would rather go to jail than yield to some nefarious agenda of a few individuals who are out to destroy democracy.
Saraki said this in a statement he issued shortly after he appeared at a Federal High Court in Abuja alongside three others for alleged forgery of senate rules.
Free Dasuki, unfreeze Tompolo’s account – Niger Delta militants lists conditions for total ceasefire
The joint revolutionary council of the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF), has declared ceasefire.
The group had earlier threatened to launch six missiles in the region and to also shut Nigeria’s airspace.
Declaring readiness to accept federal government’s offer of dialogue, JNDLF in a statement at the weekend listed its demands.
These are: immediate release of Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA), reversal of the order to freeze the bank accounts of Government Ekpemupolo, better known as Tompolo, establishment of Matitime University in Okerenkoko, Delta state, among others.
