AIT slaps Tinubu with N100bn threat

Published

on

Daar Communications, owners of African Independent Television (AIT) have described as ‘laughable’, the threat of former Lagos State governor, Ahmed Tinubu to sue the company for N20b if they do not apologise to him for airing a documentary titled “Unmasking The Real Tinubu”.

Reacting, Mike Ozekhome’s chambers on behalf of DAAR communications declared that AIT, in transmitting the documentary was only carrying out its constitutional responsibility to uphold the fundamental objectives of the constitution.

Ozekhome’s reply to Tinubu’s lawyers demanded the “payment of N100 billion representing aggravated, punitive and exemplary damages for the irreparable injury inflicted on AIT”.

A report on AIT’s website stated that it is also “demanding a complete withdrawal of the letter under reference, which must be given wide publicity as that accorded the letter from the chambers of Tunji Abayomi.

“The media company demands an apology to be published in at least four leading national newspapers and four television stations, which must include NTA, Channels and AIT.
