The crisis rocking the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kaduna State on Friday took a twist after Governor Nasir El-Rufai dragged Senator Shehu Sani before the state High Court in a defamation suit.
El-Rufai wants N2billion as damages from Sani – N500million for each of the four attacks the defendant allegedly launched against him.
Sani represents Kaduna Central in the Senate. He is a fierce critic of the governor.
El-Rufai is seeking compensation for the injury allegedly suffered as a result of “the malicious statements” made by Senator Sani through the mass media to humiliate him and defame his integrity by calling him a drunk, loose cannon and an embarrassment to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Among other reliefs, Governor El-Rufai is seeking a declaration that the derogatory remarks made against him by Senator Sani are totally false and injurious to his person in the eyes of the public.
