Senator Nwaboshi has sued Lauretta Onochie, the media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari for her unguided speech regarding the Niger delta on her Facebook page.
According to Senator Nwaboshi, he revealed that Lauretta published a defamatory article on social media on June 8th 2020 for the entire world to read. The article was tagged ” NDDC, the chicken comes home to roost “
However the offending part of the post goes like this. ” Ndi Anioma, Uwaoma nu I was at an event in his hometown when he spoke in our Anioma language, declaring himself as a thief. I am an Ada Anioma. I was raised in Anioma land, we do not take what does not belong to others, left alone pride ourselves in being thieves. “
Senator Nwaboshi however requested the court to give an order of perpetual injunction, restraining the defendant, her agents, servants, privies and any other person acting on her behalf to desist from publishing further false and damaging publication in respect of the claimant.
He also requested that the court gives an order directing the defendant to publicly apologise for her unguided statements published on the mentioned date and any other contents in her social media that portrayed such.
