Court Strikes Out Buhari’s Suit Against AIT
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday struck out defamation suit filed by President Muhammadu Buhari against DAAR Communications, operators of the African Independent Television, (AIT).
Justice John Tsoho held that the court was compelled to strike out the suit because it appeared abandoned.
According to him, no representations from the parties have been entered since the matter was assigned to the court.
He said, “This is against the rules of court, all opportunities given for the plaintiff and the respondents to put life in the suit have failed. The suit is hereby struck out.”
President Buhari had filed the suit in 2015 challenging the alleged documentary transmitted by the station aimed at defaming his character in the eyes of the public.
The President averred that the video documentary aired by the television station was aim at giving him away as a dictator and religious bigot.
He added that the documentary was also shown on the state-owned Nigerian Television Authority.
Before the action, the APC national leadership had written to the two stations describing the video as fabricated and defamatory.
Subsequently, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as he was then, was approached the court with the suit.
