Atiku warns Buhari’s aide, ask for N500m damages, apology over defamatory comments

Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar has asked Lauretta Onochie, the special aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, to apologise for ‘defamatory comments’ she made against him on social media.

Atiku also demanded a payment of N500million for damages.

Okay Nigeria learned that this was disclosed in a letter signed by Atiku’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome.

The lawyer said that Onochie wrote a tweet alleging that Atiku was on a UAE security watch-list, a tweet which Ozekhome describes as lies capable of damaging Atiku’s reputation.

Furthermore, Atiku threatened to sue Onochie for cyber bullying, stating that he was never on any watch list and challenged Onochie to provide facts to support her claims.
