The United State has revoked the visa of the Peoples Democratic Party’s chieftain, Raymond Dokpesi, because his name is on the looters’ list released by the FG.
According to TheNation, the media mogul has sued Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
Dokpesi is seeking N5 billion as damages for alleged defamation of character.
The PDP chieftain said the defendants sent his name as a looter to the United States Embassy, which in turn notified him on March 16 that his visa had been revoked.
According to him, The US Embassy said his visa was revoked because his name was among a looters list submitted to it by the FG.
The plaintiff said the publication of his name as a looter was malicious since he has not been convicted by any court of competent jurisdiction.
Dokpesi prayed that the retraction and apology to him be published both in the social media and in newspaper and televisions stations.
He is also praying for an order compelling the defendants, including Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami (SAN), to publish a full retraction of the defamatory publications and to apologise to him.
