He requested that an Accra High Court order the defendants (Captain Smart and OnuaTV) to pay him a total of GH10 million for an alleged defamatory publication in a writ that was filed on Tuesday, September 6.
“A declaration that the words complained of in paragraph 9 and published by the 1st Defendant on the 2nd Defendant’s platforms are defamatory of the Plaintiff’s character.
Again, the Bantama MP also wants “An order of the Honorable court for a perpetual injunction restraining the 2nd Defendant, it’s agents, assigns, servants and any person claiming authority through it from utilizing it’s platforms for the propagation of false and malicious statements about the Plaintiff.”
