The chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party PDP has sued the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed for N1.5 billion over the inclusion of his name in the recently released looters list.
Recall that the minister on Friday 30th March, 2018 named Uche Secondus top on the list of people who looted away the treasury in the last administraton of Goodluck Jonathan.
“PDP chairman Uche Secondus on the 19 th of Feb 2015 , took N200 million only from the office of the NSA.” The minister highlighted.
The party chairman in his reaction gave Lai Mohammed 48 hours to retract the list or face court action but the minister went further to release more names.
Now Mr. Secondus has made good on his threat to go to court. He is sueing for defamation of character and seeking redress to the tune of N1.5 billion.
