Chief Raymond Dokpesi has sued Lia Mohammed after his US visa was revoked by the US Ebassy.
Chief Dokpesi has sued Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed seeking N5 billion as damages for alleged defamation of character.
The Embassy informed Chief Dokpesi on March 16 that his visa has been revoked; citing reason for the revoke as because his name was among a looters’ list submitted to them by the Federal Government.
The plaintiff said the publication of his name as a looter was malicious since he has not been convicted by any court of competent jurisdiction.
Dokpesi requested that the retraction and apology to him be published both in the social media and in newspaper and televisions stations.
He is also requested for an order compelling the defendants, including Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami (SAN), to publish a full retraction of the defamatory publications and to apologise to him.
