The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Benue, on Thursday said it would sue two radio stations in the state for libel.
The party?s Organizing Secretary, Mr Tutus Zaam told NAN in Makurdi that it would drag Radio Benue and Ashi Waves to court as soon as the strike by judiciary workers ends.
NAN reports that Radio Benue is owned by the state government, while Ashi Waves, based in Katsina-Ala, is owned by Dr Terkula Suswam, the elder brother to Governor Gabriel Suswam.
The organising secretary alleged that the two stations have been ?broadcasting libelous information about the party and its candidates on the forthcoming elections in the state.?
Zaam said that the APC had already contacted its lawyers, and would file the necessary papers before court after the nationwide strike.
He urged the party?s supporters in the state to disregard all news items from the two stations about the APC.
When contacted, the Director General of Radio Benue, Mr Elvis Attah, declined comment on the matter.
