The court ordered that he pay the money to Paul Odekina who was married to Benedicta Elechi whom he was found have had sex with.
However, reacting to the verdict, Daddy Freeze, in a YouTube video, said it was issued in his absence as he was never served by the court.
He said the verdict was not final and he would file an appeal against it.
Daddy Freeze said “Many of you would have been surprised as I was to wake up one morning and see a judgement from a Rivers State High Court. Well, the court never served me, so the judgement was obtained in my absence.
“What we will do now is go straight to the Appeal Court. A lot of people are unaware that the judgement is not final until it gets to the Supreme Court.
“I’m very confident in the judiciary system, and I do believe that I will receive a fair judgement.”
