RIO Ferdinand’s stalker shouted out in court “this is bulls**t” as she faces a trial after allegedly breaching a restraining order by texting his personal trainer. Susan Okoya, who gave her name as Susanne Ibru, is charged with making indirect contact with Ferdinand after referencing him in messages.
Susan Okoya appeared in court today charged with breaching the order by making indirect contact with Rio Ferdinand. The charge arises from two text messages Ibru sent Teddington-based ex-rugby pro Mel Deane, one of which read: “I think you are going to have to ask Rio to pay for the session. LOL.”In a previous hearing District Judge Susan Green said: “I’ve read his witness statement that says the stalking has continued.“It says she continues to effect his day-to-day activities.“I want enquiries made to Rio Ferdinand if like that statement says there has been a continuous course of conduct.“Is she targeting this personal trainer because of her history with Rio Ferdinand. It’s not coincidental. She must have known he had a connection with Rio Ferdinand.” Prosecutor Miss Angela Mahadeo told the court: “This is the second breach, the first was in 2012.“The issue of the case is text messages sent to a third party in relation to outstanding payments for training sessions.“The Crown say if she is granted bail she will interfere with witnesses. She admitted in interview she did send the text messages.“The fact the text messages have been sent, even third party, we say is indirect contact. We say she will continue now to do it.”Ibru’s lawyer Deborah Hogg told the court: “It’s all about two text messages she sent to the personal trainer of Rio Ferdinand and it’s about what her intention was and why she sent these text messages.“She knows where Rio Ferdinand lives and where his grandmother lives in Peckham, her family live in Peckham.“She says: ‘It wasn’t my intention to to contact a third party to get in contact with him.’
