After publishing a libellous story, and being dragged to court, Icon Weekly Magazine has apologized to 2Face Idibia over what it termed a fabricated story.
Icon Weekly had in March 2014, published a story in which 2Face was alleged to have impregnated a ‘top Lagos banker’, who was also his account officer in one of the new generation banks and that, the lady had every intention of keeping the baby.
2Face had immediately denied all the allegations, rubbishing the reports and even finding humor out of the affair. But 3 months after, The Media/Entertainment Law Firm of L & A- Legal Consultants has filed libel proceedings on behalf of  2Face, at the Ikeja High Court, asking the court to award their client the sum of N100 million, being damages for the libelous publication posted on the magazine’s online and print platforms.
An out of court settlement has been reached now, with a public apology delivered. The which was signed by the Managing editor read…
“We admit that we failed to verify the source, or contact your team (960 Music Group) for a response before printing the fabricated story.”
“We have since discovered the story was false and regret the embarrassment it has caused you and your family.”
“We regret the indiscretion, and hereby apologize sincerely for our errors as our reporter was completely misinformed. We hope you would accept our apology and forgive us.”
