Billionaire businessman, philanthropist and husband to Regina Daniels, Prince Ned Nwoko has dragged an online publisher, Azuka Jebose Molokwu , to court claiming N2billion damages for defamation of character.
This is contained in a writ of summons obtained from Effurun High Court, Delta State on behalf of Nwoko by his counsel, Ikhide Ehighelua and Co dated July 13, 2020.
Also joined in the suit No. EHC 99 as the second defendant is Prince Chukwunonso Nwoko identified as the employer and sponsor of the first defendant, Jebose, a native of Onicha-Ugbo in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, resident in the United States of America.
According to the suit, both defendants made highly defamatory publications in several online blogs and other social media platforms “calculated to reduce the estimation of the claimant” and damage his reputation in the public.
It stated that the malicious publications had continued unabated against the plaintiff in spite of warnings by his solicitors to the defendants.
Counsel to Nwoko also stated that the first defendant defiantly came out openly on the social media that the cautions would not be a deterrent to his defamatory publications, prompting the legal action.
The claimant had also sought in his favour, before the court a “public apology to be published by the defendants in at least two national daily newspapers circulating in Nigeria and social media platforms” as well as an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from making any further defamatory publications against him.
Azuka Jebose, a US based Nigerian Journalist, has taken to his Facebook page to call out Nigerian billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Ned Nwoko over his statement that he married his latest wife, actress, Regina Daniels and other wives as virgins.
The businessman had in an interview with PUNCH that he fell for Regina the first day he met her.
Upon the revelation, Azuka derided the billionaire for saying he married the actress because of her virgin status and not because he loves her.
He wrote on his page,
NED NWOKO IS A SICK, DIRTY OLD BLACK BASTARD
These are what self-styled Billionaire, Ned Nwoko said about why he married his 21-year-old wife, Regina Daniels: “I have always said that I wouldn’t marry anybody who isn’t a virgin and that is very important to me. When I found out that she was a virgin, it reinforced my decision to marry her. I married all my wives as virgins”.
So you did not marry her because you love her? YOU DONT LOVE REGINA!
You married her and your ex-wives because they were virgins. Now that Rergina is no longer a virgin, how long shall the marriage last?
Which man on planet earth would publicly state this infantile and childish reasons why he married his wife? These statements suggest that Ned is a fetish and a cultist.
He is also, by his confession, a sick man-child. I hope his widely respected friends begin to distance themselves from this troubled sould. Married your wife because she’ was a damn virgin? Irresponsible and stupid statement.
