Lawyer Drags Linda Ikeji to Court, Demands N50million in Damages

New reports have just confirmed that a Lagos lawyer, Olumide Babalola, filed a suit against Linda Ikeji for using his pictures without permission and associating them with crime-related stories.

According to PM News, Babalola had written to the popular blogger to take down the stories which he said caused him psychological torture and violated his rights, but she refused.


In court, Hon. Justice O.H. Oshodi issued an injunction which restrains the blogger from further use of Babalola’s pictures, adding that she will be remanded in prison custody is she disobeys.

Read the report:

“In suit No. LD/3265MFHR/2016 before Hon. Justice O.H. Oshodi, the lawyer sued the blogger for damages in the sum of N50, 000,000 (Fifty Million Naira) for the unauthorized use of his picture on her blog for crime-related stories which he claimed has subjected him to mental and psychological torture in violation of his constitutional right to dignity of human person and freedom from degrading treatment.

Pending the time of the hearing of the main suit, Justice O.H. Oshodi granted an injunction restraining Linda Ikeji from further use of the lawyer’s picture otherwise she would be committed to prison for contempt of court.

PM News obtained the copy of the court order which was granted on the 12th of May, 2016, wherein the court restrained the blogger from further publishing Mr. Olumide Babalola’s pictures for crime-related stories.”

The case was adjourned to September 2016 for further hearing.
