APC Chieftain and ex Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has sued renowned broadcast media outfit, African Independent Television (AIT) for publishing a ‎false and malicious documentary titled, 'Unmasking The Real Tinubu" yesterday, March 1st, 2015 at about 11pm.

A press release from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu's media office reads.

Quote
"All Progressives Congress National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is set to sue the management of the Daar Communications Limited, owners of the Africa Independent Television, AIT for the defamatory content of a documentary aired on Sunday.

Counsel to Asiwaju Tinubu, Tunji Abayomi, said a letter asking Daar Communications to apologize for the content and stop further airing was delivered this afternoon.

" ... You aired an hour long documentary focussing on our client (Bola Tinubu). Clearly pre-occupied with political resentment and hatred neither warranted, necessary, proper, or justified, you published several false allegations against our client...More disturbing is your misrepresentation that the said documentary was "sponsored" without disclosing the "sponsors".

 You cannot under law, hide under media freedom to maliciously injure a citizen's reputation".
The letter also demanded for N20billion (Twenty Billion Naira) as cost of damage done to the reputation of its client failing which the client will sue the company.

"…to affirm the right of our client against your defamatory publication, we demand that you confirm to us within 24 hours of receipt of this letter, an apology and retraction of the said publication/documentary."
