Foremost information and communications technology (ICT) company, Zinox Technologies Ltd. has slammed a N2 billion suit on Premium Times, an online news medium, for a series of defamatory publications against the company, its chairman, Leo Stan Ekeh and other officials of the company.
Joined in the suit filed by the law chambers of Chief Chukwuma Ekomaru (SAN), are Premium Times Services Limited; the medium’s publisher/chief executive officer, Dapo Olorunyomi; managing editor, Musikilu Mojeed and reporter/head, business and economy desk, Bassey Udo who authored the publications.
In a well-publicized move, the management of Zinox had given a seven-day deadline to the publishers of Premium Times to retract the offending publications against the company and its officials or face a legal action. And faced with the non-compliance of the medium, Zinox had instituted a defamation suit in the High Court of the federal capital territory (FCT), Abuja, against Premium Times and its management team.
