Former Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of Abia State, Chief Ume Kalu, SAN, has slammed N500 million libel suit against ex-Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s former Deputy Chief of Staff, Chief Don Ubani.
The former Attorney General who served under both Ikpeazu and former Governor Theodore Orji, but now a chieftain of the Labour Party, accused Ubani of tarnishing his image.
The suit dated July 10, and marked FCT/HC/CV/6777/2023, was filled at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
Chief Kalu, among other things, demanded N500 million damages; and unreserved apologies which must be published in two major dailies.
Ubani who was also a former Commissioner for Information in the state, had on June 14, published the said libelous article entitled:” What a demeaning unprofessional conduct by Ume Kalu, SAN”, on his Facebook page.
