The blogger who was captured by policemen in Ogun State a month ago and charged to court for supposedly composing a false report against the wife of Ogun State gonvernor, Mrs. Olufunso Amosun, Emmanuel Ojo, has apologized to the gonvernor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
The blogger had posted a story on his facebook page that Mrs. Amosun had been captured and kept in London over money laundering to the tune of $300,000. Ojo, who had been captured and bailed, was charged for publishing a false news with aim to insult, cause hatred against the wife of the representative which was culpable under segment 516 of criminal code cap 24 vol. 2 Laws of Ogun State of Nigeria, 2006. Ojo said he had likewise directed his lawyers to pull back the case he instituted against the governor’s Chief security Officer as part of the peace moves.
He said, “In the spirit of ‘Omoluabi,’ I hereby apologise for any inconvenience or embarrassment that the said Facebook posting might have caused the state government or the family of the amiable governor.
“I have also directed my lawyers to withdraw the case instituted against the governor’s CSO in the interest of peace.
“Let me reiterate, at this juncture, that it is not my wish at anytime to malign anyone, particularly the state governor or any of his family members.
“It is the peace, prosperity and progress of my dear Ogun State that I seek. I believe the state governor, being the father of all in the state, will appreciate this and be benevolent on the matter.”
