A Federal high Court in Lagos has ordered PDP 2019 Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his campaign director, Bukola Saraki to pay the sum of N5m damages to a Lagos-based trader, Amudat Adeleke for unauthorized use of her picture on a campaign Billboard.
Adeleke had filed the suit against them saying her image was displayed in strategic places in Lagos such as Onikan, Costain, Apongbon, Airport Road, WAEC in Yaba, Illupeju, and Ikorodu.
Confirming this development, presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie wrote on her Twitter handle;
“A Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered PDP’s 2019 candidate @atiku & his Campaign Director @bukolasaraki, to pay ₦5m damages to a trader, Amuda Adeleke, for unauthorized use of her photograph on the PDP campaign billboard.
