Former Tamale Central Constituency Organizer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Habib Mohammed Tahiru popularly known as Veron has threatened to sue a host of Radio Tamale’s weekend political talkshow dubbed – Banboyeligu for comments Veron’s lawyer described as “defamatory”.
In a letter to Radio Tamale requesting for the full audio tape of the programme on Sunday, 23 January, 2022, the Veron through Maligu Law Chambers has given the station one (1) week ultimatum to produce the a copy of the recording or meet them in court.
“Am instructed to categorically state that, portions of the story which was heard by
my client are unacceptable and distasteful to my client. Notably words or publications to the effect that; “VERON joined NDC from NPP through ALHAJI ABIO when he came to do his National Service”. That VERON is not credible. Alhaji FUZAK never sanctioned VERON to speak on his behalf. VERON is a bad person and he mobilised his kind and they went and attacked and took away motor bike from one SUALE'”, the lawyer stated.
“To say of a man such as HABIB MOHAMMED TAHIRU (popularly known as VERON), publications including the above is grossly defamatory of him is a sense that the publications have besmirched his reputation since by reason thereof he will be considered as a man of violent character and an untruthful person thus, cannot be trusted. The publications lowers him in the estimation of the public”, he added.
