Betta Edu Threatens to File Lawsuit Against BBC over Alleged Defamation

Betta Edu Threatens to File Lawsuit Against BBC over Alleged Defamation 

Dr. Betta Edu, the suspended Minister of Poverty Alleviation and Humanitarian Affairs, has threatened to sue the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for allegedly defaming her personality. 

Edu revealed this in a letter that her attorney, Chikaosolu Ojukwu (SAN), submitted to the BBC’s headquarters in London and Abuja.

Betta Edu issued a letter claiming that the BBC had reported that N30 billion had been recovered from her as part of the ongoing investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The attorney said that his client Edu’s reputation had been damaged by the publication, which he called fake. 

Ojukwu asked BBC to retract the article and tender a public apology to Edu over the matter within 48 hours, saying that, “Our client has suffered immeasurable reputational damage, psychological trauma and anguish as a direct consequence of the publication and dissemination of the article,” the letter read. 

Edu is also demanding 50 million dollars from the UK-based media organisation as compensation, and threatened to take legal action against BBC.
