MFM Files Fresh N2bn Suit Against Sowore's Sahara Reporters
The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministries (MFM), Dr. D.K. Olukoya, has accused Sahara Reporters Publisher Omoyele Sowore of consistently churning out publications that are defamatory to his person.
To this effect, he has filed a N2 billion suit against Sowore for defamation of character.
In the suit filed before the High Court of Akwa Ibom State, Uyo, Sahara Reporters Incorporation and Objective Media Group Limited were listed as the 2nd and 3rd defendants.
Olukoya and his church are claiming N2 billion against the defendants for alleged aggravated libel and have asked the court to compel Sowore and his media platforms to pull down and erase each of the offending posts.
They are also praying for an order directing the defendants to tender written apology and retraction in form and content acceptable to the claimants.
The church wants this published prominently in Sahara Reporters online news media, on Facebook and in at least three nationally circulating newspapers and two international magazines, including TIME International.
In addition, the clergyman is asking the court to issue an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants by themselves, his agents, servants, privies or other persons howsoever called or described, from further making, publishing and/or disseminating libellous stories and statements against the claimants or any one of them.
No date has been fixed for hearing on the N2 billion libel suit.
