A Lagos-based trader, Mrs .Amuda Adeleke, has instituted a suit before the Federal High Court, Lagos, against the former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki who was the Director-General of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation during the 2019 General Election, for using her picture on campaign billboards without her consent.
The applicant is also seeking for an order of the court directing the immediate withdrawal and destruction of the campaign materials containing her unauthorised images anywhere within and outside Nigeria.
She is also seeking a court declaration that the unauthorised use, publication and display of her image as advertisement by Saraki as head of the Atiku, Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation constitute a breach and infringement of her fundamental right, to privacy as enshrined, guaranteed and provided for in the 1999 Constitution.
The defendants stated that all matters of electronic/billboards campaigns were contracted out to Messrs AHC Production Limited and so she was contacted and interviewed by that company.
The Defendants added that the applicant was so excited about about this possibility of a change of government that can restore economic stability and guarantee the security of life and Properties and generally make Nigeria to work again as represented by Atiku and Obi.
