He said “The Defendant/Respondent has not extended due courtesy to me relating to the agreement aforesaid and had dropped a special invitation inviting him to the launch of the unapproved book.Annexed and marked as Exhibit C is the special invitation dropped at my office by the Defendant/ Respondent.”
