Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State has asked a social critic and his lawyer to sue his wife Betty Akeredolu for alleged defamation of character.
Naija News recalls that the governor’s wife, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu had last week in a social media post called the social critic who is based in Canada a rapist.
The post by the First Lady was sequel to a post made by Jimmy Adekanle who is popularly known as ‘JAF’ alleging that the First Lady broke the federal government’s interstate travel ban when she traveled to Ondo State from Imo State.
Responding Betty said, “Jimmy Adekanle Jaf shut the hell up. You are still talking. Canada lresivist. This has entered in Ondo social media lexicon. I even heard that you are a sex offender and you ran away to Canada. Shame on you! Come back. Police is waiting for you. And my office is after scumbags like you. You are in real trouble. Arabinrin has no mercy for rapists like you. Jail term awaits you. FAKE HUMAN IRESIVIST… ”
While demanding a retraction and withdrawal of the alleged defamatory post within a stipulated seven-day period, Adekanle’s lawyer, Tolu Babaleye said that a profound and unreserved published apology must be tendered to his client.
He also threatened to approach the court for redress if the First Lady failed to comply.
Reacting in a post on social media, Governor Akeredolu asked Adekanle’s lawyer to proceed with his client’s request, adding that his wife does not enjoy immunity.
“Tolu Babaleye, please go ahead with your client’s further instructions and file the action. The First Lady does not enjoy immunity,” the governor said
