Elections: Atiku Slams N2bn Suit Against Buhari

Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has approached a High Court in Federal Capital Territory, asking it to bar President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies in the country from interfering with the general election.

Atiku further asked the court to compel Buhari to pay him damages in the aggregate sum of N2 billion, as well as tender a public apology to him, for sponsoring frivolous suits against him. The demands were contained in a counter-claim the PDP presidential candidate filed in response to a N40 million libel suit the Buhari Campaign Organisation, BCO, slammed against him over an allegation that he defamed Buhari and his family.
