A lawsuit has been filed at a High Court sitting in Port Harcourt against a legal-practitioner identified as Prince Gbogboade Akintoye by a 79-year old man, Chief Gaskin Egede Sobrasuaipiki, for allegedly disclosing the content of his Will without his consent.

In the suit number PHC/2518/CS/2020, the claimant urged the Court to order the defendant to return the file copy of the Will in his possession, saying the Will has been revoked.

He demanded the sum of N100 million as general damages for the defendant’s negligence as well as for the trauma he has suffered as a result of the unprofessional handling of his Will by the defendant.

When the matter came up on Wednesday, the presiding judge, Hon. Justice Okogbule Gbasam adjourned hearing on the case to February 10, 2021.

Gbasam directed parties involved in the matter to file necessary pre-trial documents to enable the Court to give it a speedy hearing.

Speaking with newsmen outside the courtroom, counsel to the claimant, Erasmus Dike, expressed the optimism that the Court will give them justice.

“My client came to Court against a lawyer, Prince Akintoye. His claim is that the Will he prepared for him was exposed. That is why we are in Court.

“We are pressing for damages to the tune of N100million for his negligence in exposing the Will,” Dike stated.
