Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ade­lanwa Bamg­boye

The Chair­man of the Eco­nomic and Fi­nan­cial Crimes Com­mis­sion, Ibrahim Lamorde has slammed a N1 Bil­lion law suit against The Sun News­pa­pers.

The suit was filed at the Fed­eral cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory (FCT) High Court. No date has been given for hear­ing.

The al­leged of­fen­sive re­port was pub­lished in Daily Sun News­pa­per of Thurs­day, 8th Oc­to­ber, 2015.

Ac­cord­ing to Lamorde, the re­port was false, ma­li­cious and se­ri­ously in­jured in his char­ac­ter, credit, rep­u­ta­tion and in­tegrity.

He is ask­ing the Court to or­der the de­fen­dant to pub­lish a re­trac­tion and an un­re­served apol­ogy.

He is also seek­ing for a per­pet­ual in­junc­tion re­strain­ing the De­fen­dant whether by it­self, its agents, priv­ies or ser­vants from fur­ther pub­lish­ing or caus­ing to be pub­lished any li­belous, in­ju­ri­ous or defam­a­tory words against him.
