MFM: Daniel Olukoya Sues Thisday Newspaper For N500 Billion For Libel by Realdeals(m): 10:41am On Sep 14
Days after Sahara Reporters and Omoyele Sowore was sued N10 billion for libel, the Incorporated Trustees of Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries, MFM, and the church’s founder, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, have commenced a legal action against ThisDay Newspapers for allegedly publishing a libelous story against them.

The cleric and the church are demanding N500bn in damages from Thisday newspaper for the alleged injury caused them by the defendant’s publication.

The claimants are urging the court to make an order, directing the newspaper “to tender a written apology and a retraction published prominently on its website and for three consecutive days on the front page of ThisDay Newspaper and in at least three other nationally circulating newspapers and two international magazines, including TIME International.”



The claimants also want the court to order the defendant “to pull down and erase the offending story from the Internet forthwith.”

They are also seeking an order of perpetual injunction “restraining the defendant by itself, its agents, servants, privies or other persons howsoever called or described from further publishing and/or disseminating libelous stories and statements against the claimants.”

The cleric and his church are also praying the court to put the cost of filing the lawsuit on the newspaper.

The suit marked PHC/2257/2018 was filed on their behalf by their lawyer,  Ime Nya Asanga of Ime Asanga & Company at the Rivers State High Court in Port Harcourt on July 30, 2018, hearing is yet to be fixed.

500m is even small why publish false stories against a man of God. Dr olukoya should increase it to 500billion and it should be paid in pounds sterling. undecided
