The N500m damages entered in favour of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries and its General Overseer, Dr Daniel Olukoya, by an Ogun State High Court against a UK-based blogger, Maureen Badebo  has been registered by a United Kingdom High Court.

The judgment was registered on Tuesday, March 30, 2021.

“By this development, the judgement of Justice Abiodun Adeyemi becomes, for all intents and purposes, judgement of the Queen’s Bench Division and will soon be executed on the judgment-debtor, Maureen Badejo, in that country,” the Spokesperson of MFM, Collins Edomaruse, said in a statement on Tuesday.

The PUNCH reported that Justice Abiodun Akinyemi of an Ogun State High Court in Abeokuta had delivered the judgment on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 in which damages of N500m were awarded to MFM and Olukoya, against Maureen Badejo for aggravated libel.

Justice Akinyemi gave the verdict against Badejo for libelous publications against Olukoya and the church.

The court also granted “a perpetual injunction restraining the defendant by herself, her agents, servants, privies or other persons howsoever called or described from further making, publishing and/or disseminating defamatory stories and statements about the claimants or any one of them.”

The judge described the report as the worst case of reckless defamation and evil use of the internet and social media.
