Is a Nigerian blogger on his way to being thrown the books by the Nigerian judicial system for revealing information about a purported indiscretion by the Managing Director of the Fidelity Bank? Mr. Oloketuyi has been surprisingly sent to the Special Fraud Unit of the Police for defamation for publishing damning details of an alleged affair of Mr. Nnamdi Okonkwo with an employee of the bank he heads.
Nnamdi Okonkwo, Fidelity Bank’s Director supposedly “defamed” by a blogger who has shared time with inmates of infamous Kirikiri Maximum Prison at Apapa, Nigeria for a “crime” he has not been pronounced guilty of.
Okonkwo has just thrown a bone to many dogs as he may be able to get Oloketuyi, perhaps, out of circulation for a while but his story is going to attract quite a lot of attention. Despite my lack of legal knowledge, et cetera, I wonder how this case is going to be handled if the defendant’s attorney that may be more as the case progresses through the different court levels is/are able to prove an “ambush” that the present attorney, Muiz Banire, the legal adviser of the All Progress Congress, APC holds to be the lot of his client.
