The letter reads; “The four persons who are bloggers, online media practitioners and/or social media influencers have been criminally defaming, threatening, cyberstalking/cyberbullying our client over the circumstances surrounding the death of a lodger, Late Timothy Adegoke, in one of our client’s hotels {Hilton Hotel (Honours)} in Ile Ife, Osun State in November 2021.

“This is an issue being the subject matter of judicial proceedings and investigation by the Nigeria Police which, on 15th November 2021, invited and subsequently arrested our client for the purpose of investigation. But these bloggers embarked on a series of campaigns of calumny against our client, discrediting the police investigation and impugning the constitutional credibility of the Nigerian Police, to incite the public against the constituted authorities, against our client and engendering violent breakdown of law and order.

“They alleged human killings and body dismemberment, fake autopsy reports, made allegations of fake CCTV footage and secret cultism against our client, Dr Adedoyin.

“They carry out these crude illegalities via online outreaches like Facebook, YouTube and Agidigbo FM Radio and others.”

Adedoyin’s counsel has therefore urged the Nigeria police to invite and investigate Oriyomi Hamzat and others, stating that their actions are against Sections 373, 374 and 375, of the Criminal Code Act Cap. C38 LFN 2004 and Section 6 of Libel Act 1843.
