The General Overseer of the Divine Hand Of God Prophetic Ministries, Prophet Omale Emmanuel, has threatened to sue the News Agency of Nigeria over the accusation of laundering looted money for the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
The News Agency of Nigeria of extracted the information from a report of a panel that looked into the activities of Magu and the EFCC.
Burt Omale is disputing the veracity of the content of the report.
His lawyer, Chief Gordy Uche, has thus written to NAN.
The letter said: “The story, published by one of your reporters online, has been read by millions over the globe, and in the process; tarnished the image of our Client and has turned him into a source of ridicule in the society.
“In light to the allegations by your agency, my client however, seeks immediate redress to the issue. The apology must be published in three different Nationals, 7 days from when letter was received.
“Failure to comply, will be risking a libel suit that will demand that your agency pays the sum of one billion naira as an injunction for compensation of the defamed character.”
