Mr. Joseph Odok
The High Court of Cross River State sitting in Calabar has barred controversial dismissed University of Calabar (Unical) Lecturer, Mr. Joseph Odok from posting libelous publications against Prof. Zana Akpagu, Unical VC on Facebook.

In a suit number HC/363/2018, Prof. Akpagu asked the court to give an order stopping Odok from posting libelous materials against him on Facebook and other social media platforms.

After perusing the affidavit in support of the motion and exhibits attached, the presiding Judge, Justice U.A Ibitham on Friday, September 21 granted an interlocutory injunction restraining Odok from continuing to publish libelous materials against the VC pending the hearing and determination of the matter.

The order sighted by our Reporter reads in part "An order of interlocutory injunction restraining the 1st defendant/Respondent from continuing publication of the libelous materials on the Facebook platform of the 2nd Defendant/Respondent pending the hearing and determination of the matter".

Odok was listed in the suit as the 1st Defendant/Respondent while Facebook Incorporation, USA was added as 2nd Defendant/Respondent.

Efforts to get Odok's response was unsuccessful at the time of filing this report.
