PRETTY OKAFOR SLAMS TONY OKOROJI WITH LIBEL SUIT, DEMANDS N500M DAMAGES
Following a Press release by the Performing Musicians Employers Association of Nigeria (PMAN) addressing the Coson crises, the embattled former Chairman of Coson, Chief Tony Okoroji, published a letter in which he threatened to sue the PMAN President, Pretty Okafor in his personal capacity for signing the PMAN press release, obviously out of desperation and lack of legitimate options Tony Okoroji failed to realise that the PMAN President was following the decision taken by the PMAN working committee and EXCOS.
The PMAN President’s Legal team , however, interpreted Okoroji’s gesture as an attempt to undermine the office of the PMAN President with the intent to discredit and label Pretty Okafor as an illegitimate PMAN President.
Based on this position, Pretty Okafor directed his Lawyers to slam Okoroji with defamation of character and libel lawsuit and demand 500 million naira damages " it is imperative to serve Okoroji his own food" says the PMAN President, because he , Okoroji has sued the AGF, NCC Director, Efe Omoriegbe, Audu Majority , Obi Asika, and list goes on. Anyone that challenges his illegitimate hold on COSON is a target of Okoroji’s frivolous lawsuits.
All major stakeholders in the Music Industry , including A List Artists such as 2baba, MI, BANKY W and many others have since spoken out against Okoroji’s impunity.
