Defamation case against Edo APC chairman fixed for Nov 23

The Edo State High Court has fixed November 23 for a hearing of the defamation case against the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Imuse.

A Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in charge of Akwa Ibom State, Mike Igini, had filed a suit demanding the N5 billion as aggravated damages. 

The case was slated to start on Wednesday but was rescheduled.

Prior to the September 19, 2020 Edo State governorship election, the APC chairman and some other persons had addressed a press conference titled, “Press conference on Governor Godwin Obaseki’s criminal attempt to infiltrate INEC officers like Mike Igini” in Auchi in Etsako West Local Government Area.

Igini said the publication dented his image adding that, people who before held him in high esteem had lost confidence and started avoiding him.
