Diezani Allison-Madueke takes legal action against AGF, EFCC over alleged lib£l; seeks just N100 billion in d@mages

A former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Allison-Madueke has sued the Attorney General of the Federation and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged libel.

She is demanding N100bn to be paid to her in d@mages, according to a writ of summons filed on her behalf at the Federal High Court, Abuja, by her team of lawyers led by Mike Ozekhome (SAN).

A copy of it directed the “Defendants jointly and severally to pay to the Claimant the sum of N100,000,000,000.00 (100 billion naira) only as d@mages for the false, inj¥rious, m@licious and libelous publications against the Claimant in the 1st Defendant’s publishing platform, and at the instance of both the 1st and the 2nd Defendants”.

In the writ of summons dated May 26, 2023, the former minister is also demanding that the EFCC and AGF apologise to her in three national dailies over what she described as “the false, inj¥rious, m@licious and libelous publications” against her since she left Nigeria in 2015. Both EFCC and the AGF were given 14 days from the service of the summons to enter their defence.
