“Though we have not received a formal letter from his lawyers to that effect we wish to inform him and members of the public that we have briefed our lawyers, we welcome the suit and we shall gladly meet him in court.
“The days of silencing people with arrogant threats and frivolous litigation are long over. We cannot be silenced by Modu Sheriff’s threat to sue and we are not losing any sleep over it.
“Such a course of action will prove not only to be counter-productive for him but by the time it is all over he will get the shocker of his life’’.
