Tinubu To Sue AIT For Publishing False Allegations Against Him


All Progressives Congress National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed
Tinubu is set to sue the management of the Daar Communications Limited, owners
of the Africa Independent Television, AIT for the defamatory content of a
documentary aired on Sunday.

Counsel to Asiwaju Tinubu, Mr. Tunji Abayomi, said a letter
asking Daar Communications to apologise for the content and stop further airing
was delivered this afternoon. A part of the letter to AIT reads, ” … You
aired an hour long documentary focussing on our client (Bola Tinubu). Clearly
pre-occupied with political resentment and hatred neither warranted, necessary,
proper, or justified, you published several false allegations against our
client…More disturbing is your misrepresentation that the said documentary
was “sponsored” without disclosing the “sponsors”. You
cannot under law, hide under media freedom to maliciously injure a citizen’s
The letter also demanded for N20billion (Twenty Billion
Naira) as cost of damage done to the reputation of its client failing which the
client will sue the company.
Another part of the letter reads: “…to affirm the right
of our client against your defamatory publication, we demand that you confirm
to us within 24 hours of receipt of this letter, an apology and retraction of
the said publication/documentary.”
