In a writ of summons filed at the Accra High Court, a copy of which is in the possession of Myjoyonline.com, the plaintiff is seeking 10 million cedis in damages against Dela Coffie and an additional 1 million cedis against Michael Dokosi.

The plaintiff is also seeking an order of perpetual injunction to restrain the defendants from going ahead with any such publication.

Cudjoe is again seeking an order from the court to compel the two to retract and fully apologise for the comments published.

The defendants have within eight days to enter an appearance after they have been served with the writ.
