Defamation Case: Governor El-Rufai Testifies In Court
May 10, 2017
Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai this morning appeared at the State High Court to testify in the libel suit he filed against The Union Newspaper in 2015 over a defamatory assets declaration story.
El-Rufai had sued the Lagos based newspaper for reporting that he declared assets worth N90billion before the Code of Conduct Bureau.
The Union newspaper had on June 2015 published a story alleging that El-Rufai declared assets worth N90billion, including 40 mansions scattered across the country. The governor described the story as “untrue and malicious” shortly after signing the writ of summons.
