Defamation: JAMB PRO demands N6bn from Brekete Family’s Ahmed Isah, Human Rights Radio

Dr. Fabian Benjamin has dragged Brekeke Family host, Ahmed Isah, to court in a libel suit.

The Head of Public Relations, Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), accused Isah of false allegations.

The spokesman said an injurious broadcast against him last year amounted to defamation of character.

The other respondent is Premier Broadcasting Ltd (owners of Human Rights Radio 101.1FM) of Plot 1184, Kaura District, Abuja.

The suit, No. CV/3211/2021, filed by Barrister Chris Alashi is before Justice A. O. Ebong of the FCT High Court in Gwagwalada.

Benjamin wants N6billion as compensation for general damages, libellous and malicious broadcast by 1st defendant (radio station), anchored by 2nd defendant, Isah.

The claimant recalled that on April 16, 2021, Isah, while on air, telephoned him, impugned, maligned and discreded his integrity and reputation as JAMB PRO and an academic.

He informed the court Isah accused him of forging his Ph.D certificate and being insane, incompetent, unscrupulous and sadistic.

Benjamin said Isah told the public that his “bad behavior and arrogance” were acquired from his parents and there was no solution to it.
