Oshiomhole Sues Magazine For N250m Over Sex Allegation by oyb(m): 8:20am On May 29, 2012
Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole on Monday dragged News of the People, a soft sell weekly magazine before a Benin High Court, asking for N250m as damages, for alleged libel.

Oshiomhole, in suit No B/556/2011, against Dockland Communications Limited, publishers of News of the People magazine, alleged that the content of a material published by the magazine in 2011, on the front page and page 19, with the headline, ‘Oshiomhole’s sex power exposed: Impregnates young girl six months after death of wife’, libeled his person.

He further alleged that the defendant, among other things falsely wrote that he bought the said girl a jeep, that he was interfering in the academic activities of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, on behalf of the girl, that he used intimate performance enhancement drugs and that he had performed traditional marriage rites precedent to marriage between him and the said girl.

Oshiomhole, whose suit is before Justice (Mrs.) Efe Ikponmwonba, alleged that the said edition containing the libellous piece was widely circulated, to coincide with preparations for one of his daughter’s wedding.

Asked by his lead counsel K.O. Igiebor why he was demanding damages, the governor, who testified as Principal Witness 1, said the publication caused him and his children psychological trauma, six months after the death of his wife.

He said, “When I called a brother governor to sponsor my daughter’s wedding, the governor said he was confused, and asked me if I was the one doing the marriage or my daughter.

“He added that he was reading a magazine which said that I was about getting married to a university student, and that the said wife-to-be was already pregnant.

I was also asking the same question. Proponents of the immunity clause claim that the immunity shields them from having to go through time-wasting court cases and would save tax-payers monies that would have been spent on legal fees. Now isn't the Attorney-general (a government employee) supposed to represent the govt in court cases? So how does the said legal fees arise? And then a party cannot just bring the government to court if not for the reason that govt must have aggrieved said party? Does it now mean that a governor or the president can cause harm to another entity and go away with it? The governor or president can sue but cannot be sued? Common sense shows that that is morally and fundamentally wrong. That immunity clause in our constitution is a curse and as long as it is there, it serves as a constant reminder to people in power that they can do anything and get away with it. It fosters corruption.

Honestly corruption is an institution in Nigeria.

Sorry for speaking off topic.

adonisgold:

What do you mean by "civil matters"? Does it mean "they" cannot be held liable for a criminal act? Like Odi and Zaki-Biam massacre?

I know one can sue the state or federal government, but you can't sue the person of the state Governor or President right? Even if that person is actually implicated in a tortious act?

This is truly injustice on part of our constitution. Infact there should be immediate amendment. So they could be sued.
