BREAKING: Atiku Drags Buhari’s Biggest ‘Liar’ To Court, Demands Billions Of Naira

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has carried out his threat to sue President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on social media, Lauretta Onochie, for her alleged libellous tweet, via her Twitter handle, on May 7, 2019.
The post allegedly suggested that Atiku was on the watch-list of Security Operatives in the United Arab Emirates, and had travelled to shop for terrorists in the Middle-East.
Atiku, through his Lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), filed a N2.5 billion suit against Onochie, before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, in Abuja.
“To say that the Claimant is shopping for terrorists, knowing same to be untrue and without any foundation, is not only dishonest and reckless, but is calculated and politically designed to instigate Security Agents against him, not only in the UAE, but across the world”, he said in his statement of claim accompanying the suit.
Denying the allegations contained in the said tweet, Atiku said that the tweet was “politically orchestrated”, “solely to cause maximum damage” to his “high reputation”, while challenging “the purported victory” of  Onochie’s Boss, President Buhari, in the last Presidential election, at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
Atiku had in a May 14, 2019, letter, demanded an apology, retraction, and payment of a N500 million compensation from Onochie, “to assuage” the damage allegedly caused him by her social media post.

He also threatened to sue her, should she fail to accede to the demand “within 48 hours”.
Alleging that Onochie was unmoved by his demand letter, Atiku, in his statement of claim accompanying his suit, stated that, rather than show “remorse by retracting her earlier publication”, she further, on May 20, made “another derogatory publication, and also published same globally online in the social and other print media”, against his person.
He said that sometime in May, this year, he had embarked on a foreign trip to the UAE, as he had done over the years, and while on the said trip, Onochie on May 7, 2019, wrote through her twitter handle:

“Atiku on UAE watch-list – Security sources. Security Operatives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are keeping a close tab on a former Nigerian Vice Pres., Atiku Abubakar, who has been in the Middle-East nation for several weeks now. What is he doing there? Me: Shopping for Terrorists?”

The Claimant said: “The defamatory publication was also published by several newspapers nationwide, and on several social media news platforms.”
