Former Vice President and People Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has demanded five hundred million naira and a written apology from Lauretta Onochie an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, for spreading lies capable of damaging his reputation on the social media.
Atiku in a letter said he would sue Onochie for two billion naira damages if she fails to meet his demands.
He added that he would pursue a criminal charge against her if there occurs any further malicious and defamatory publication against him.
In the letter, he referred to a post on Onochie’s Twitter handle where she reportedly stated: ‘Atiku on UAE watch list – Security Sources.’
The letter added that if she failed to comply with the demands within the next forty eight hours from the date of the letter, he shall be compelled to activate the full weight of the legal machinery against her.
