For the avoidance of doubt, this office wishes to state categorically that Chief Olisa Metuh or any of his lawyers are not aware of any such suit by Lai Mohammed.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretary, Olisa Metuh, has denied knowledge of any law suit, purportedly filed against him by the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Lai Mohammed.
The PDP scribe’s Special Assistant, Mr. Richard Ihediwa, in a statement said "The attention of the Office of the PDP has been drawn to reports in some section of the media, suggesting that the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has filed a suit against Chief Olisa Metuh.”
Adding that "Media reports have it that Lai Mohammed instituted a N500 million suit at a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja, seeking compensation for alleged defamation of his person by some issues raised by Chief Olisa Metuh in response to one of his (Mohammed’s) statements.”
"For the avoidance of doubt, this office wishes to state categorically that Chief Olisa Metuh or any of his lawyers are not aware of any such suit by Lai Mohammed, nor have they been served. Also, none of the newspapers that carried the story published the said suit,” the statement said.
