The Buhari Campaign Organisation has instituted a N40million defamation suit against the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, accusing him of defaming President Muhammadu Buhari and his family.
In the suit lodged before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, President Buhari is cited as the 2nd plaintiff.
The group is asking the court to compel the PDP flag-bearer to pay damages for alleging that the President and his family members own substantial shares in 9mobile and keystone bank.
They claim that the suit which has one of Atiku’s aides, Mr. Phrank Shaibu as the 1st defendant, was not only false but highly libelous.
The campaign organization is asking for damages for the embarrassment, pain and unnecessary financial loss suffered by the President.
