Ned Nwoko fights N2 billion defamation lawsuit against blogger
Prince Ned Nwoko, a former member of the House of Representatives and philanthropist, has brought an online blogger, Azuka Jebose Molokwu, to justice and has requested a fined N 2 billion in damages for defamation of his character.
This is included in a subpoena received by his lawyer Ikhide Ehighelua and Co on July 13, 2020 from the Effurun Supreme Court in the state of Delta on behalf of Nwoko.
Prince Chukwunonso Nwoko, as the second defendant, was also indicted and sponsored by the first defendant, Jebose, who is from Onicha-Ugbo in the Aniocha North region of Delta State and is located in the United States, in the No. EHC 99 States from America.
According to the lawsuit, both defendants have published highly defamatory publications in several online blogs and other social media platforms, “to reduce the applicant’s assessment” and to disparage his public reputation.
It was found that, despite warnings from his lawyers against the defendants, the malicious publications continued unabated against the plaintiff.
Nwoko’s lawyer also said that the first defendant defiantly came out openly on social media that the warnings would not deter his defamatory publications, leading to legal action.
The applicant had also filed for a “public apology to the defendants in his favor in at least two national newspapers distributed in Nigeria and on social media platforms” in his favor, as well as an injunction requesting the defendants to do so prevents further defamatory publications against him from doing so.
