EFCC Boss, Magu Sues The Sun Newspaper For N100million Over Report On Wife

Eleven days after operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invaded The Sun, acting chairman of the anti-graft agency, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has filed a suit at a Lagos High Court, against the newspaper over an alleged defamation.

Magu, in his statement of claims signed by his lawyer, Wahab Shittu, wants the court to declare that the story published in Saturday Sun of March 25, 2017, which talked about two houses allegedly linked to his wife, defamed him.

The EFCC boss also wants the court to declare, “an order for publication of apology, retraction and rebuttal of the libelous material by defendants on the front page of the Saturday Sun newspaper for seven consecutive editions of the newspaper and two other major newspapers for seven consecutive days.”

He also seeks an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants or their cronies, group of people, association or anyone, however, called through the defendants or any newspaper/magazine, from further publishing or disseminating the libelous materials or similar one against the claimant forthwith.”
