A 17-paragraph statement of claim accompanied the summons.
Governor Ortom is seeking a declaration that the text of Senator Akume’s press conference on August 30, 2021, in Abuja, as well as reports in various national dailies, is scandalous, malicious, and injurious to his person, according to the statement of claim.

 

He claimed that the press conference was held to lower his social standing and expose him to hatred, contempt, and ridicule from right-thinking members of society.

The Governor is seeking a perpetual injunction prohibiting the defendant from publishing any defamatory statement against him, either directly or through any agent, servants, or privies.

The case has yet to be assigned a date.
