I have been following the case between the former New Media Director of the Imo State Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Mr. Ambrose Nwaogwugwu, and Ozisa FM presenter, Mr Theodore Chinonso Uba aka Nonsonkwa, and even when I am not Nwaogwugwu’s biggest fan (neither am I his enemy), I see this legal battle going his way by the look of things.
Our people usually say, “no be who first call police dey win case”, and as much as Nonsonkwa took the initial step towards a legal resolution to the matter, he might end up being burnt in the process.
Why do I say so?
I studied Nwaogwugwu’s response and I saw where Nonsonkwa’s defeat will come from; burden of proof.
Nwaogwugwu had two Facebook accounts and one got hacked and was forced down after it was used to cause a lot of trouble for the young man. Could it be that the hackers were responsible for the said publications against Nonsonkwa?
Another problem presents itself, as the Facebook account in question no longer exists and unless Nonsonkwa can some how get Facebook to reopen that account, and trace the IP from which the post was made, I don’t see how this matter would be going in Nonsonkwa’s was.
If Nonsonkwa cannot prove categorically, that the said post came from Ambrose Nwaogwugwu, then the real trouble starts. Like I said, “no be who first call police dey win case”.
Screenshots can easily be argued as photoshops, so any screenshot without access to the actual Facebook account may as well be useless.
Nonsonkwa now has the herculean task of writing to Facebook and making them open that account to trace the IP the post came from, or settle with Nwaogwugwu.
I would urge these two men to call each other to a round table and settle their differences like gentlemen without lawyers.
