The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has come out to warn Sahara Reporters that they have 7 days to retract all libelous, defamatory publications against him.
He revealed this in a recent statement signed by Dr. Umar Gwandu, his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations.
According to him, the criminal defamation published by Sahara Reporters has caused him considerable distress, psychological trauma, and anxiety, so they should expect to be sued if they do not retrace their steps.
He then thanked Nigerians for supporting him via telephone calls and visits amid these trying times.
His words, “Since the defamatory articles were published, I have been receiving several telephone calls and visits from well-meaning Nigerians, friends, well-wishers and associates from all over the world including those I have dealt with and am still dealing with in my official capacity as Nigeria’s Chief Law Officer, many of whom have expressed serious concerns over the publication”.
