Photos: False ‘Sex Story’ Has Landed PM News In N20 Million Naira Worth Of Trouble


PM News is popular for racy and sometimes shocking headlines. Apparently, one of those extreme headlines may cost the evening newspaper a hefty 20 million Naira in damages.

On January 15 2014, the tabloid published a story about a woman with the screaming headline ‘My Husband Wants To Kill Me With Sex! – Divorce Seeking Woman’. You can still read the story on PM News website here.

In a new twist, Bose Bello, the ‘divorce-seeking’ woman claims that PM news falsely reported the story and published widely that an insatiable sexual appetite on behalf of her ex-husband was to blame for her divorce.

The woman, Bose Bello, who resides in the Ejigbo area of Lagos State had apparently just dissolved her marriage at an Ejigbo Customary court a day before the story ran. According to her, not only was the story false, but as a result of the publication, she has suffered incalculable difficulties in the process.

According to Bose Bello, the false story ‘has brought her into disrepute in the estimation of right-thinking members of society’.

The story which had her full picture and face on the cover and was read by hundreds of thousands of local and international viewers on PM News website has cost her losses in her businesses as associates and partners have stopped working with her mostly because of the social ridicule.

While her family still suffer the untold embarrassment caused by the story, she also intimates that the chances of finding another marriage partner has been greatly reduced because possible suitors regard her as a sexual deviant.

All this heartache can be eased, however, if PM News is willing to cough up N20 Million Naira in general damages.

PM News hasn’t made any comment on this as phone calls and emails sent to them have not been responded to at the time this story was published.

The initial headline for this story was ‘PM News In 20 Million Payout Over False Sex Story’. We didn’t want to get sued, so we changed it.
