Presidential aspirant of the AAC, Omoyele Sowore, has reacted to the N10 bullion lawsuit slammed on his online media platform, Sahara Reporters, by Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM).
MFM is suing the online medium over what it called a series of false, malicious and defamatory publications against the ministry and its General Overseer, Dr. D. K. Olukoya, since January 2013.
In the Suit No HU/250/2018 pending before the High Court of Akwa Ibom State, Uyo Judicial Division, the claimants are praying the court for sundry relief, including the sum of N10billion as exemplary damages, a written apology/retraction to be published in Sahara Reporters, three national dailies and two internationally circulating magazines, one of which must be the TIME International.
The Church also want the court to direct Sahara Reporters to pull down and erase each of the offending stories published between published from 2013 against the Church and to stop further publishing and disseminating libelous stories and statements against them.
The Claimant’s counsel, Ime Asanga, said the ministry was constrained to take legal action following the actions of Sowore and his co-defendants in refusing to desist from publishing “false and malicious articles” against the MFM over the stated period.
But Sowore took to his Facebook page to dismiss the case as ”Nothing To Worry About!”.
He wrote: “Earlier this Year This Same “Pastor” And GO Olukoya Sent A UNILAG Alumni Official, Aaron Akinloye To Ask For A Meeting Between Him, The New Vice Chancellor Of UNILAG, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe And Myself, Aaron Claimed He (Olukoya) Was Doing Wonders For UNILAG And Wanted Me To Stop SaharaReporters From Negative Reporting Against Pastor Olukoya, I Refused!.’
