The Communication Minister, Ursula Owusu Ekuful is seeking an interlocutory injunction against controversial musician Kwame Asare Obeng a.k.a A Plus.
She’s also praying the court to restrain the musician, his his agents, servants, hirelings, privies or any person claiming under or through him from making any further defamatory comments publications about her on Facebook or any media platform whether electronic or print or howsoever upon grounds contained in the accompanying affidavit and for such further Order(s) as the court may deem fit.
The court is expected to move the motion on Monday 18th June, 2018.
The Minister through her lawyers, is demanding an immediate retraction and apology for the comments the controversial musician made on Facebook in the wake of the Kwasi Nyantakyi GFA scandal.
On May 23, Kwame Asare Obeng aka A-Plus reportedly wrote on his Facebook wall: “Kwasi Nyantakyi is only being sacrificed to cover up the $89/178 million KelniGVG stinking scandal.”
He is also alleged to have accused the Minister of being involved in “some shady deals at the Communications Ministry and National Communication Authority (NCA).”
Mrs Ekuful who feels strongly about the allegations has threatened to sue the musician to clear her name if he does not retract and apologize.
“We are instructed to notify you that our client takes a serious view of your defamatory publication on Facebook and would not hesitate to commence legal action against you if the said publication is not retracted on or before June 1, 2018.
“We are also instructed to notify you to render an unqualified apology in the same medium and prominence in the manner that your libelous publication was done,” counsel for the Minister, Gary Nimako Marfo, stated in a letter to the musician.
