In a recent court ruling, Linda Ikeji was ordered to pay ₦30 million in damages to the Neo-Black Movement of Africa for a defamatory publication. 

The court also instructed her to pay ₦300,000 in litigation costs and retract the libellous post from her blog and national newspapers. 

The lawsuit stemmed from Ikeji's labeling of NBM of Africa as a dreaded cult group, black axe, and criminal organization. 

The court deemed these labels defamatory and emphasized the importance of verifying information before publication. 

NBM of Africa, a legally registered organization, plans to enforce the judgment and urges bloggers to exercise caution in their reporting to avoid similar litigation.
