Court Bars “Daily Nigerian” From Posting Alleged Ganduje Bribery videos.
Kano state Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has been granted an interim injunction by the high court seeking to restrain Daily Nigerian and its publisher, Ja’afar Ja’afar, from publishing videos of the governor allegedly collecting bribe
The online news platform had published videos showing Ganduje allegedly collecting kickbacks from contractors.
The governor asked the court to declare the publication as wrongful and a defamation of character.
In its ruling on Monday, the court restrained Jafaar and Daily Nigerian, and their agents from “publishing, sharing or spreading videos injurious to the plaintiff pending the determination of the substantive application slated for hearing on the 6th of December 2018”.
This development comes a week after the contractor behind the videos had said he was ready to testify before the Kano state assembly panel investigating the matter.
