Alleged invasion of privacy: Apologize or face legal action – Gani Adams tells Igboho


The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has asked Yoruba nation activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Igboho, to apologize for allegedly invading his privacy or face the wrath of the law.

Adams made the demand in a pre-litigation letter written by his counsel, Mr Adesina Ogunlana.

In the letter dated June 4 2024 and addressed to Igboho, Adams detailed how the Yoruba nation activist allegedly infringed on his fundamental human rights.

He alleged that Igboho invaded his privacy by publishing a private conversation he had with a friend sometimes in 2021 in the media.

He described Igboho’s action as a deliberate, reckless and malicious breach of his fundamental rights to privacy as constitutionally guaranteed in Section 37 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, as amended.

Adams demanded a letter of unqualified apology from Igboho for the reckless and unlawful invasion of his privacy by the mass publication of his private discussion with Mr Nurudeen Banjo, which he said has scandalised his personality and status.

He said: “Nonetheless, despite your affront to the honour and reputation of our Client, the great weight of his traditional title and office dictates first an embrace of rapprochement with you as a brother worthy and so, we have his instructions to request for an amicable settlement of his grievance in this matter with your good self.

“To that end, our Client considers a month from the day of your receipt of this letter time adequate enough, to receive your response.

“However, where you treat this our letter with disdain or ignore, our Client shall recourse to the Law to press claims.”
