The sum of N30 million has been slammed on popular blogger, Linda Ikeji by a Delta State High Court sitting in Effurun as damages over her libellous publication against the Neo-Black Movement (NBM) of Africa.

The presiding judge, Justice Roli Daibo-Harriman, in her rulings on Monday also awarded a sum of N300,000 being cost of litigations against the entrepreneur.

The court also ordered Ikeji to place a publication in her blog and national dailies retracting the libellous publication complained about.

Furthermore, Ikeji who is a Defendant in a lawsuit number: EHC/210/2021 was also ordered to restrained from making further damaging publications against the Claimants and members of the NBM of Africa.


The lawsuit had the Registered Trustees of NBM of Africa, Ese Kakor, Felix Kupa and Mayor Onyebueke as the Claimants.

Ikeji was dragged before the court by the NBM of Africa and three others after she had failed to honour the demand letter of retraction and apology over the libelous article published in her blog on Oct. 19, 2021.

The blogger in her publication of Oct. 19, 2021 allegedly referred to NBM of Africa as dreaded cult group, black axe, criminal organisation and other names.

Consequently, the claimants prayed the court for an award of N1 billion only and an unreserved apology to be published in her blog and two national newspapers and among others.

In her rulings, Justice Daibo-Harriman clearly described the words, dreaded cultist group, black axe, criminal organusation and others as used by the defendant in her libelous publication as all defamatory.

Addressing newsmen shortly after the court’s proceedings, lead counsel to the Claimants, Mr Kelvin Agbroko said that it was a well deserved judgement.

“This will serve as lesson to bloggers that it is not every item you published. It is good to verify information before making a publication.

“NBM of Africa is a legal organisation duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).

“The publication made by the defendant against my client has been cleared that is was a damaging publication.

“NBM is good to go, we are going to take all necessary steps to enforce the terms of the judgement against her.

“It was an erudite judgement that is all encompassing and will be difficult to fault,”
 Agbroko said.

Also responding to the judgement the President of NBM of Africa, Mr Ese Kakor said that the case had been on for about two years.

He said that the judgement was a warning to bloggers and other members of the public not to call people or organisations names that were not ascribed to them in a bid to blackmail or defamed their characters.

“What Ikeji did was just to sell in a bid to defame the character of NBM of Africa, it is very wrong.

“I advised other blogger not to follow same steps as they may also face similar litigation.

“Do not try and defame peoples character. NBM has nothing to do with cultism, black axe. It is not a criminal organisation but a well registered organisation,”
 he said.

Kakor, however, advised the public to be law abiding and do things within the ambits of the law.

The defendant was not present in court neither was she represented.
