It would be recalled that Obanikoro had threatened to sue Sowore, his media outfit and a couple others for $1 billion after he was accused of complicity in an audio tape, allegedly revealing discussions prior to the election.
According to Breaking Times, Obanikoro had already filed court papers via his lawyers, MJS Partners on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at the Lagos State High Court Ikeja
It was also gathered that Sowore has been dodging several attempts to have his papers served in Nigeria as he has no fixed address anywhere in the country.
