Former Defence Minister, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, has dragged online newspapers, Sahara Reporters and Premium Times before a Lagos High Court for defamation of character.

Joined in the suit are Punch Newspapers Ltd., Omoyele Sowore, Publisher of Sahara Reporters and Festus Owete, General Editor at Premium Times.

The defendants had published an audio recording of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, purportedly in a conversation with other individuals to rig the Ekiti State gubernatorial election, an allegation Obanikoro and others have denied.

In a suit filed on his behalf by Dr Yemi Oke of MJS Partners, at the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja, on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, Obanikoro is suing the defendants for damages to the tune of N1 billion.

Obanikoro is seeking “an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from publishing or causing to be published, either directly or indirectly, defamatory, damaging, offensive or degrading statements, articles and/or materials against the claimant.

“An order directing the defendant to jointly or severally pay to the claimant the sum of N1 billion, being damages for harm caused to his political, professional, business, social and institutional reputation, as a result of the defamation, by willful and scandalous publication of false statements by the defendants.

“An order directing the defendants to retract the false and damaging publication by a letter of apology directed to the claimant and published on the same media through which the defamatory publication was circulated and

“An order of court for the cost of this suit against the defendants.”
