THE Edo State governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, on Monday, dragged a soft sell news magazine, News of the People, to a Benin High Court, with a claim of N250 million as damages from the magazine, for an alleged libellous publication against him.

In the case No. B/556/2011 between Oshiomhole and Dockland Communications Limited, publishers of News of the People magazine, the governor alleged that the publication, which came out sometime last year carried on the front page and page 19, the following titles: “Oshiomhole’s sex power exposed: Impregnates young girl six months after death of wife.”

Besides, Oshiomhole, who personally appeared in court told Justice (Mrs) Efe Ikponmwonba of High Court number eight that in the edition of the news magazine being referred to, he was also alleged to have bought the girl a Jeep, and was interfering in the academics of the girl, at the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma.

Oshiomhole also said the magazine alleged that he used sexual enhancement drugs and that he had done traditional marriage with the purported girl, just as he added that the edition, which was widely circulated coincided with the preparations of one of his daughter’s wedding.

When asked by the lead prosecution counsel K. O. Igiebor why he was seeking damages, the governor, who testified as PW/1, stated that the said publication caused him and his children serious psychological trauma six months after the death of his wife.
