    PDP Senatorial Candidate, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan Sues Kogi Governor Bello, Others For Linking Her To Terrorism

    Published on

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kogi State Central Senatorial candidate for the 2023 elections, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has sued the state governor, Yahaha Bello, and others for linking her to terrorism.

    Akpoti-Uduaghan listed the state government and the state information and communications commissioner, Kingsley Fanwo alongside with the state governor.

    The suit follows demand of the state government on heads of security agencies in Nigeria to invite Mrs Akpoti-Uduaghan for questioning over alleged terrorism capable of dragging the state back to “the dark era.”

    It said despite Governor Bello’s interventions to rid the state of terrorism, it was concerned that some politicians were grooming terrorists in the state as well as importing them from neighbouring states.

    The allegations were contained in a statement credited to Fanwo, who noted that Mrs Akpoti-Uduaghan had exhibited enough actions to be invited over terrorism-related activities, particularly with how the PDP and organisations linked to Mrs Akpoti-Uduaghan had advocated for the release of an alleged terrorist named Safiu, who is being detained by the Department of State Services.

    In a court document filed by her legal team led by Mr Femi Falana (SAN), dated November 11, 2022, Natasha described the state government’s statement as defamatory and injurious to her reputation.

    She, therefore, sought the order of the court to award in her favour N5 billion in damages, against the defendants
