Sahara Reporters Published on julu 10, 2020, how the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami gave his eldest son a house worth N300 million as a wedding gift in Abuja.
This publication wasn’t welcomed by the Minister who claimed that the publication was untrue, inaccurate and misleading. He also claimed that the publication violates his human rights and then proceeded by giving Sahara Reporters the ultimatum of seven days to take down the post.
He also demanded an apology on the front page of three new papers for three consecutive days or face a lawsuit.
How do you think Sahara Reporters will respond to this threat since they have a right to speech and expression as stated in the constitution? Is the publication in question really a defamation to the character of the minister?
