Defamation: Kanu’s Lawyer Writes Malami, Demands N20bn Damages

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has written to the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF Abubakar Malami, demanding an unreserved apology over an alleged defamatory publication.

Kanu stated in the letter that the AGF allegedly defamed him when he claimed that he jumped bail.

It was contained in a letter written by his lawyer, Aloy Ejimakor titled, “RE: Pre-action Notice And Formal Demand For Settlement Of The Claim Of Defamation/Libel Of The Character Of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Grounded On Your False, Defamatory And Libellous Publications.

The first suit dated September 23, had sought “a declaration that the defendant’s arrest and imprisonment of Kanu at a location in Kenya, and the subsequent imprisonment of the plaintiff in the aircraft that conveyed him from Kenya to Nigeria, amounted to false arrest and false imprisonment.

Kanu is, therefore, asking for the sum of Twenty Billion Naira only, being general and exemplary damages.

He also wants an unreserved personal letter of apology, to be published in two Nigerian Newspapers, namely Guardian and the Sun Newspaper.
