In a N500 million libel suit filed following the publication before an FCT High Court, Kuku stated that the media report that he fled the country to avoid probe by President Muhammadu Buhari was untrue and ‘high libelous’. In the suit by his counsel Karina Tunyan (SAN), Kuku joins The Abuja Inquirer and Gazetta Communications Ltd as defendants in the suit. In an affidavit attached to the suit, Kuku averred that “he travelled out of Nigeria to the USA for a scheduled medical procedure at the Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center (LLC) Alabama enroute London almost two months after the May 29 handover date.” Kuku, who admitted that a letter of invitation was sent to him by the EFCC on July 22, 2015, however added that contrary to the report on July 27, 2015, he was not declared wanted for any criminal embezzlement of funds valued at hundreds of millions of US dollars.
