The first son of Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State, Chinedu Orji , an

Engineer, has sued the Sun Newspapers owned by the former Governor of the

State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, claiming N5 billion for calling him “a

terrorist.”
Briefing journalists yesterday in Umuahia, a member of the legal team for

Orji's son,  Chief Chukwunyere Nwabuko, said the libelous publication was

contained “on page 21 of the March 10, 2014 edition of The Sun Newspapers

which read that 'it is not a secret affair as his terrorist activities in

the state are fully documented' “.
The Counsel said the former Governor had been using his media outfit to

publish malicious and libelous articles against Orji and his son who does

not even hold any position in government.
He gave the suit number of the case filled at Abia State High Court

holding at Ohafia as HOH/5/2014, adding that Livy Uzorukwu (SAN) is the

lead counsel of Orji's legal team.
Nwabuko further said that the Presiding Judge, Justice Anthony Chioma, had

already granted an order for the defendant to be served out of

jurisdiction, adding that the matter is coming up for hearing next week,

September, 22.
The three point claims by the claimant include: “The sum of N5,000,000,000

as damages for libel; An unreserved apology to be published in at least

three editions of the Daily Sun Newspapers; and An Order of perpetual

injunction restraining the defendants, their agents, privies, servants and

associates from further writing , printing , and publishing of the said

libelous matter or a similar one against the claimant .
