Diezani has filed an N100bn libel suit against Malami and EFCC.
Glamtush reports that the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, yesterday filed a libel suit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN).
Alison-Madueke, in suit CV/6273/2023, alleged that the EFCC and the AGF wrote and published false and defamatory reports on the agency’s website and other news sites about her of being a corrupt, dishonest…degenerate, decadent public officer.”
The publications, she claimed wantonly smeared her integrity and character which are of “paramount importance to the success of her political endeavours.”
In the writ of summons filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja by Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Madueke prayed the court to order the defendants to retract the publications and tender an unreserved apology to her in three national newspapers “for the false, injurious, malicious and libelous publications” against her over the last eight years.
She is also seeking an order of the court to restrain the defendants from further distributing or in any form or manner, the same or similar offensive libelous materials or stories of or concerning her.
