The suit was filed by counsel to Captain Hosa, Dr Adedapo Olanipekun, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria. He also sought an order compelling the defendants to wholly retract or withdraw “the false, fabricated, misleading, malicious, unfair and defamatory publications of 20 July 2020 published in two national newspapers.” Captain Hosa, through his counsel, is also seeking the sum of N4billion for “being aggravated and exemplary damages for the embarrassment, inconvenience, losses and damages done to the claimant’s person, character and interests, as a result of the defendants’ libellous publications.” Recall that Captain Hosa recently debunked claims that he is responsible for the booing incident that took place outside the palace of the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, on Saturday, July 25.
