Captain Smart and his employers Media General have been slapped with a lawsuit by Francis Asenso-Boakye for what he describes as defamation.

The Works and Housing Minister says Captain Smart published false news about him and has failed to retract and apologise. 

According to him, Captain Smart alleged that when he was the Deputy Chief of Staff at the Presidency, he used his influence to stop one Adubufuor, a staff of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) from being transferred so investigations could be conducted into some alleged misconduct.

He requested that an Accra High Court order the defendants (Captain Smart and OnuaTV) to pay him a total of GH10 million for an alleged defamatory publication in a writ that was filed on Tuesday, September 6.

“A declaration that the words complained of in paragraph 9 and published by the 1st Defendant on the 2nd Defendant’s platforms are defamatory of the Plaintiff’s character.

Again, the Bantama MP also wants “An order of the Honourable court for a perpetual injunction restraining the 2nd Defendant, it’s agents, assigns, servants and any person claiming authority through it from utilising it’s platforms for the propagation of false and malicious statements about the Plantiff.”
