The General Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry, Dr Daniel Olukoya, has filed a libel suit against the Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Mr Omoyele Sowore, demanding N10bn in damages.

In the suit filed before the Akwa Ibom State High Court in Uyo, the MFM founder said he was

constrained to take legal action against Sowore, his online platform, Sahara Reporters Incorporated

and the Incorporated Trustees of Sahara Media Foundation for their alleged failure to desist from

publishing false and malicious articles against him and his church, MFM, since 2013.

The cleric said despite complaints, Sowore and his Sahara Reporters remained intransigent and

continued to publish offending stories about him and his church.

Olukoya said he had earlier demanded that Sahara Reporters pull down all the offending stories

against him and his church within seven days but Omoyele and his platform refused.

He said having failed to take advantage of the seven days he gave them, he had no other option but to sue them.

The Incorporated Trustees of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries was listed as the

first claimant while Olukoya was the second claimant in the suit marked HU/250/2018.

Joined as defendants were Sowore, Incorporated Trustees of Sahara Media Foundation and

Sahara Reporters. Apart from the N10bn damages, the cleric and his church are praying the

court to order the defendants to “pull down and erase each of the offending stories from

the Internet forthwith.”

They also want the court to compel Sowore and Sahara Reporters to “tender a written

apology and retraction, published prominently in their online news report and in at least

three nationally circulating newspapers and two international magazines, including TIME International.”

The claimants are also praying for an order of perpetual injunction, “restraining the

defendants by themselves, their agents, servants, privies or other persons, howsoever

called or described from further publishing and/or disseminating libellous stories

and statements against the claimants.”
