Lai Mohammed Slams N500m Defamation Suit On Metuh by GudluckIBB(m): 1:44am On Oct 13, 2015
The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Monday filed a N500m defamation suit against his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh.

Mohammed claimed he was defamed by a press release said to be authored and circulated by Metuh on September 20, 2015.

The APC spokesman said Metuh had in the said release stated that he (Mohammed) embezzled the funds meant for the fencing of an airport in one of the APC-controlled states in the South-West.

Mohammed also claimed that Metuh said he (Mohammed) obtained money to supply ambulances to one APC-controlled state in the South-West but never executed the contract.

Metuh had, in the said statement, allegedly wondered where Mohammed got the courage to speak on corruption when indeed the APC spokesman had mastered the art of corruption, having been “a personal aide to one of the most corrupt politicians to ever bestride the political space of the country.”

Mohammed, who said he was a one-time coordinator of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Campaign Organisation, claimed that the statement credited to Metuh was carefully calculated to inflict damage on his reputation and to lessen him in the estimation of the public.

He claimed that Metuh had injured his character in a grave manner and caused him considerable reputational destruction and embarrassment.

The APC spokesman, who is also a ministerial nominee, claimed that Metuh’s lawyer, Emeka Etiaba (SAN), had in a letter dated September 25, 2015 to the claimant’s lawyer, Wahab Shittu, admitted authoring the statement but denied that it was Mohammed that was being referred to.

Mohammed is seeking an order mandating Metuh to not only retract his statement but to also tender published apology to him in a widely read newspaper for seven consecutive days.

He is also seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining Metuh and his privies from further publishing or disseminating libellous materials against him.

The suit, which was filed on Monday at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja, has yet to be assigned to any judge for hearing.

Some of you people show such alarming levels of ignorance. Imagine this to be Metuh's defence in court then you'd understand what nonsense you just typed. If Lai had said things Metuh thinks were injurious to his reputation, no one is stopping him from approaching a law court for restitution.

Make una dey try think before una talk abeg.

The man that will be paying the 500 Million, is not finding it amusing.
