 Kaduna State Governor Nasir has filed a suit at the State High Court seeking N500million damages on four defamation charges against the senator representing Kaduna Central zone, Shehu Sani.

The governor, who personally filed the suit on Friday, is seeking compensation for the injury he allegedly suffered as a result of “the malicious statements” by Senator Sani.

He accused the lawmaker of calling him a drunk, loose cannon, and an embarrassment to President Muhammadu Buhari.

El-Rufai is also seeking a declaration that the derogatory remarks purportedly made against him by Senator Sani are totally false and injurious to his person in the eyes of the public.

Counsel to the governor, Abdul-Hakeem Mustapha, told reporters at the court premises that each of the four actions attracts the sum of N500milion each.

He also dismissed insinuations that Governor El-Rufai, by virtue of his position, lacks the constitutional right to sue any citizen. (Channels TV)
