Banky W threatens to sue Nigeriafilms.com over article

From Banky's blog
I will now proceed to sue this website, the writer, and everyone involved with propagating such nonsense until they delete this poor excuse for an article and post a full apology, or until a court of Law closes this business down.
I think Banky should have ignored them. Thousands of people didn't see it until he brought our attention to it. How can you sue someone when you don't even know who they are? NF I think operates from outside the country. Also can a law court close down a blog in Nigeria? I doubt it...probably not worth your time and money darling.. but do what you gotta do.
