The famous defamatory suit slapped against sports presenters Patrick Osei Agyemang (Songo), Kofi Asare Brako (Abatay) and Multimedia Group Limited has been adjourned again to the 29th of November following the defendants' counsel's refusal to file for defence after hearing was opened today.

According to the counsel for the defendants, his clients have apologised for defaming the Ghana FA Boss and FIFA Council member Kwesi Nyantakyi hence deciding not to file for defence.

He argued that the counsel for the plaintiff should read the apology along with the plaintiff and if they are dissatisfied, he will then file for defence for the full hearing of the case.

Counsel for the defendants (Songo, Abatay and Multimedia) pleaded with the court that the due process of issuing an apology to the Ghana FA Boss Kwesi Nyantakyi has been followed and that they expect the plaintiff's counsel to acknowledge that.

Counsel for the plaintiff (Kwesi Nyantakyi) prayed to the court that his chamber has not seen the said apology as being alluded by the counsel for the defendants insisting the hearing must start but the counsel for the defendants rebutted that the apology was rendered with the full consent of a senior member in the chamber of the counsel for the Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Kwesi Nyantakyi's counsel then prayed to the court to give him some time to look for the said apology to read and then report back to the court on a set date.

Both parties agreed that the next date of sitting should be the 29th of November 2016.

Multimedia group issued an apology on the web portal myjoyonline just a week ago after the two, Songo and Abatay disappeared in court for the first hearing and want to use it as an exhibit in court.

This is the third time the case has been adjourned as the judge could not report to court on the first date (2nd November) as well as the two (Songo and Abatey) chickening out of court after showing up on the second hearing on 9th November..

Nyantakyi is adamant as he is keen on giving evidence in the case that will see over 100 tape recordings tendered in evidence to back his claim of libel.

He was ready to mount the witness box to open his case as he seeks to clear his name following persistent accusations of criminality and fraud on the radio station by the two presenters.

The GFA boss is suing Countryman Songo, Abatay and the media company for $2m in the defamation and libel lawsuit after 'years of consistent lies and calculated negative campaigns', Nyantakyi will tell on the court.
