Senator Andy Uba has decided to send Heritage Bank to court over a viral video showing its staff protesting at the entrance of his residence.
According to Uba, the bank has tarnished his his public image after the bank staff stormed his premise to protest that he should repay the loan he was allegedly owing the bank. Uba issued signed by his lawyer, Ahmed Raji, SAN that threatened to take legal action.
Part of the letter reads: ”Despite your veiled denial, the deliberateness of your staffs’ action is founded and the intent, to wit: – bring our client to public opprobrium shame, ridicule, scorn etc, is glaring for all to see.
”This is more so, as you deliberately picked the rather inauspicious period immediately preceding the forthcoming gubernatorial primary election of the All Progressives Congress [APC] for Anambra State slated for the 26th of June 2021, wherein our client is the leading candidate to clinch his Party’s ticket, to stage this smear campaign against him.”
”Surely, the damage occasioned to our client by your calculated but ill-advised action is unquantifiable. However, our client will be relieved if a public apology, unreserved, is tendered by you and published in at least five national daily newspapers within a day of receipt of this letter and payment of N5b in damages,”
”If not, we have our client’s further instructions to seek redress against you in a court of law for the same. Kindly be advised.
”We hope that this bank will take benefit of the olive branch offered in this letter; the gamble, otherwise, is yours to suffer,”
