Falana to Drag Linda Ikeji to Court For Publishing A Fake Story About John Abayomi (Instblog 9ja)

Seasoned journalist John Abayomi has threatened to sue the publisher of Linda Ikeji blog, Linda Ikeji for publishing a false and malicious story about him.



Abayomi through his lawyer, Falana and Falana’s Chambers claimed that the publication with the headline, ‘LIB Exclusive: Meet the owner of Instablog9ja-John Abayomi’ has put his life and that of his family in danger.
In the letter delivered to the blogger on Friday, a copy of which was sighted by our reporter, Linda was asked to tender an unreserved apology within forty-eight hours or risk legal action.
Linda in the said publication has claimed that ‘the owner of instablog9ja is John Abayomi, a former online editor of Vanguard news and current online editor of Punch’.
However, Falana said the statement is untrue and unfounded, but only calculated to lower Abayomi’s esteem and damage his reputation and professional career.
“Your publication has put him in the harm’s way, thereby endangering his life and the lives of his family members. It has also attracted a lot of negative reactions from members of the public including celebrities who has been eager to know the face behind the blunt and sarcastic blog because of the method of reportage”.
“Your mendacious publication was clearly actuated by malice in that it was deliberately done to portray our client as an imposter, a fraudster and a blackmailer”
“In the light of the foregoing, we have our client’s firm instructions to demand an unqualified apology together with a retraction of the libelous publication in the edition of your blog (Linda Ikeji blog) in addition to having the retraction published on Instagram.
“However, if you fail or refuse to accede to our client’s demands within 48 hours of the receipt of this letter, we shall have no option than to initiate civil proceedings against you at the Lagos State High Court without further recourse to you,” reads the letter which was signed by Chukwuma Onwuemene (ESQ.).
A reliable source has also rubbished reports that Abayomi has been summoned to a meeting by his employers, Punch Newspapers over Linda Ikeji’s publication.

“It is totally untrue. There was no such meeting. John is a top notch professional and everybody close to him, including his employers are aware that Linda Ikeji’s publication was completely untrue,” the source said.
