Libel Case: Okonjo-Iweala gets justice
Former Minister of Finance during Jonathan’s regime, Prof. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has won a legal battle against a news website Pointblank news.
The legal battle which had been on for six years finally came to an end when an Abuja High Court of FCT ordered Pointblanknews to pay a total of N200m in damages to the plaintiff over a libelous story it published.
