Abuja - John Holt's former area manager, Echezona Nzeribe, has filed a wrongful dismissal lawsuit against the company.
Nzeribe was dismissed in June 2012 over the alleged sale of the company's generator valued at N2million.
Nzeribe has already approached the National Industrial Court in Abuja to challenge his dismissal, PM news reported.
He is asking the court to declare his dismissal as unlawful, null and void and of no effect.
He is also asking for punitive and aggravated damages because of the way the dismissal was handled, claiming it was done in bad faith and in a manner that damaged his reputation.
The case has been fixed for December 5 by Justice Peter Lifu, the Presiding Judge, who also ordered that court paper be served on the defendants.
