AIT Replies Tinubu's Threat to Sue And Demands N100bn Damages

AIT has now replied Bola Tinubu's threat to sue over a documentary titled “Unmasking The Real Tinubu” that was transmitted on the TV channel.

You can recall that "Bola Ahmed Tinubu" national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had threatened to sue the channel owners for airing the documentary which he said was denigratory “in all respects.” In a letter written to the management of DAAR Communications Limited, owners of AIT on the 2nd of March, 2015, Tinubu gave the organization 24 hours to apologize and resile the publication.

Well, AIT is now out with their own reply. Read their statement below....

Daar Communications Plc has reacted and rejected in their totality the demands of Tunji Abayomi and co. on behalf of Bola Tinubu over a documentary titled “Unmasking The Real Tinubu” transmitted on African Independent Television, AIT; as according to a publication on its website. 

The demands, which Mike Ozekhome’s chambers describe as amusing, include the stoppage of further transmission of the alleged denigrating documentary, and upon failure will attract Daar communications to pay twenty billion Naira as damages.

In its reaction, Mike Ozekhome’s chambers on behalf of DAAR communications made it known that AIT, in transmitting the documentary was only carrying out its constitutional responsibility to uphold the fundamental objectives of the constitution. 

It states further that the documentary merely stated that Bola Tinubu generally violated various portions of the Nigerian constitution. DAAR communications plc is therefore demanding a complete withdrawal of the letter under reference, which must be given wide publicity as that accorded the letter from the chambers of Tunji Abayomi. 

The media company demands an apology to be published in at least four leading national newspapers and four television stations, which must include NTA, Channels and AIT. The sum of one hundred billion Naira representing aggravated, punitive and exemplary damages for the irreparable injury inflicted on AIT is also being demanded.
