Alleged libel: Apa/Agatu Rep withraws N500m suit against Ortom’s aide

The House of Representatives member for Apa/Agatu Federal Constituency, Hon. Godday Odagboyi, has withdrawn the N500million libel suit he instituted against Governor Samuel Ortom’s social media aide, Mr.  Morgan Adikwu.

L-r: Odagboyi and Adikwu

Mr. Adikwu had in a scathing publication indicted the federal lawmaker for forgery and perjury, which prompted the lawmaker to file the libel suit in 2019, shortly after the general elections.

When the case came up for hearing today, however, the lawmaker withdrew the suit.

Though, no sufficient reason(s) was adduced for the withdrawal, a source from Hon. Godday’s camp who spoke under anonymity, said the withdrawal is a result of fear of additional motion added to the suit by Adikwu.

More to come…
