The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai has sued the senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani, before a Kaduna State high court, demanding N2bn.
DAILY POST reports that Sani on Tuesday condemned El-rufai, describing him as a ‘military administrator and a tyrant’.
The total damages being sought amounts to N2bn. The suit was filed on Friday.
El-rufai said he was seeking compensation for the injury allegedly suffered as a result of “the malicious statements” made by Senator Sani through the mass media to humiliate him and defame his integrity by calling him a drunk, loose cannon and an embarrassment to President Muhammadu Buhari.
El-rufai is also seeking a declaration that the derogatory remarks made against him by the Senator was totally untrue and injurious to his person in the eyes of the public.
Counsel to the former Federal Capital Terriotory , F.C.T, minister AbdulHakeem Mustapha, SAN, while speaking with newsmen, said each of the four actions attracts the sum of N500m.
