Nigerian billionaire and politician, Ned Nwoko has dragged online journalist Azuka Jebose Molokwu, to court claiming N2billion damages for defamation of character.
Azuka made a series, warned Regina Daniels to run away from her marriage because Ned Nwoko has a lot of skeletons in his closet. The US-based journalist said Ned Nwoko is not worth a man any woman should marry as she advised Regina Daniels to run away for insisting on marrying only virgins- something that has an occultic interpretation. She also claimed Ned Nwoko forcibly took people’s land and those who resisted were given a dose of his brutality.
Ned Nwoko has consequently dragged her to court to seek redress for defaming him. According to the suit, both the journalist made highly defamatory publications in several online blogs and other social media platforms “calculated to reduce the estimation of the claimant” and denigrate his reputation in the public.
It stated that the malicious publications had continued unabated against the plaintiff in spite of warnings by his solicitors to the defendants.
Ned Nwoko is hoping the court before the court will make Azuka render “public apology to be published by the defendants in at least two national daily newspapers circulating in Nigeria and social media platforms” as well as an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from making any further defamatory publications against him.
