The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry founder- Dr Daniel Kolawole Olukoya has sued Sahara reporter’s Omoyele Sowore for Libel and he is seeking N10bn as damages. The founder alleged that Sahara Reporters has been making publications, damaging his person and the church he is overseeing and that despite several complaints to the reporting agency, but Sowore and his Sahara Reporters have continued in the same path of publishing damaging publications about him.
It was gathered that Sahara Reporters had previously been asked by Olukoya, to take down all the negative stories against him and his church within seven days but Sowore and Sahara Reporters have refused to do so, hence the suit filed before the Akwa Ibom State High Court in Uyo.
Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries were listed as the first claimant with Olukoya as the second claimant in the suit marked HU/250/2018, the defendants were Sowore, Incorporated Trustees of Sahara Media Foundation and Sahara Reporters.
The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry founder is also demanding an order for the defendants to “pull down and erase each of the offending stories from the Internet forthwith” in the lawsuit, and also an apology.
The claimants are reportedly also seeking an order to compel Sowore and Sahara Reporters to “tender a written apology and retraction, published prominently in their online news report and in at least three nationally circulating newspapers and two international magazines, including TIME International.”
