Looters’ list: Secondus drags Lai Mohammed to court, demands N1.5bn


National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, has sued the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Mohammed had named Secondus in the first list of those he claimed looted the nation’s treasury.

According to Mohammed, Secondus collected N200m from the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (retd.).

But the party leader swiftly denied the allegation, adding that he was embarrassed by Mohammed’s claim.

Secondus also warned Mohammed to issue a public apology within 48 hours.

On Friday, he filed a suit at the High Court, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, demanding that the court award to him the sum of N1.5billion being damages for humiliation, castigation, vilification attack on his person and integrity as a result of the publication.

According to a statement signed by his spokesperson, Mr. Ike Abonyi, Secondus in the suit with number /PHC /1013/2018, is also claiming that Mohammed’s publication is defamatory.

He is asking the court to also direct Mohammed him to retract the said publication and apologise to him in writing.
