Nnamdi Kanu sues AGF Malami for N20 billion for alleged defamation.
Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, has sued the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for allegedly defamatory publication.
Kanu accused the AGF of defaming him by claiming he jumped bail through his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor.
He then demanded N20 billion in damages.
On Tuesday, Jan. 17, Ejimakor shared copies of the suit on his Twitter page, noting that Malami’s “defamatory publication” was detrimental to Kanu’s pending cases.
Ejimakor posted on Twitter, “The purpose of this post is to encourage you to file a complaint if you are not satisfied with the results of your investigation. Such publication is highly prejudicial and detrimental to MNK’s other cases currently pending in various courts. It has to come to an end!”
Kanu demanded in the suit, “a declaration from this Honorable Court that, in light of the said Abia State High Court’s Judgment, the Defendant’s published statements or utterances to the effect that Claimant jumped bail, as published in the said Vanguard newspaper publication, are libelous and defamatory;
“An order of this Honourable Court ordering the Defendant to retract the aforementioned Vanguard newspaper publication via another press statement to the Vanguard newspaper;
“An order of this Honorable Court directing the Defendant to write and deliver an unqualified letter of apology to the Claimant. The letter of apology will be prominently and boldly published full-page in two national circulation Nigerian newspapers, Guardian Newspaper and Sun Newspaper.
“An order of perpetual injunction prohibiting the Defendant from uttering the said defamatory and libelous words about or concerning the Claimant in the future;
“An order of this Honorable Court directing the Defendant to pay the Claimant N20,000,000,000.00 (Twenty Billion Naira only) in general and exemplary damages.”
