Court gags media from publishing ‘defamatory materials’ against Buhari’s business associate
A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has directed chief executive officer of Pointblank News, Jackson Ude, not to publish “defamatory materials” against Bulet International Limited and Abubakar Ismaila Isa Funtua, a businessman.
The order was given by a judge of the high court, Yusuf Halilu, following an ex parte motion filed by Bulet International and Isa.
Abubakar is a son to Second Republic Minister and Elder Statesman, Ismaila Isa Funtua, a close ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, and a rumored member of the cabal that controls the president.
After listening to Former Attorney-General of the Federation, Michael Andoakaa, who is counsel of the plaintiffs, the court granted the application to serve the defendants the writ of summons and all other court processes by substituted service.
“An interim order of the honourable court restraining the defendants from further publication of any defamatory statement(s) against the claimants pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice in this suit is hereby granted,” the judge held.
The court held that PointBlank News could be served through email or “tags” on Facebook and Twitter.
Halilu said the court processes should be pasted at No.47, Rumford street, Suncity estate, Galadimawa, Abuja, which is the address of Ude.
The suit was adjourned till July 9 for hearing.
The Nigerian Young Professionals Forum (NYPF) is a respondent in the suit marked CV/1823/20.
ElombahNews has reported that Authorities in the United States U.S may have commenced large scale investigations into the massive looting of Nigeria’s treasury by members of President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabal.
Popintblanknews.com sources at the U.S State Department and the Department of Justice, DOJ, are said to have tracked money laundering activities of Buhari’s Personal Assistant and Private Secretary, Sabiu ‘Tunde’ Yusuf, Senior Special Assistant, Domestic, Sarki Abba, Mamman Daura, and Ismaila Isa and Abubakar Isa Funtua from 2016 to 2019 in the United Arab Emirate and the United Kingdom.
Abubakar Ismaila Isa Funtua went and obtained an injunction from an Abuja Judge restraining me from publishing anything against him and his company.
