The Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mike Igini, has threatened to file a N1 billion libel suit against a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Blessing Agbomhere, over alleged defamatory statements.
While denying the allegation, the activist and former President of the University of Benin Students’ Union Government, also demanded N1 billion as damages.
He, therefore, gave Agbomhere a 48 hours ultimatum within which he should retract the said defamatory statements and tender an apology to him in four major television stations and five prominent Newspapers that he would go to court.
When contacted, Agbomere told Newsmen that he stood by the allegation.
“I’ve not seen his letter but I stand by my allegation, we’ll meet in court”, he said.
