Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has taken steps to make real his threat to sue New York-based online news platform, Sahara Reporters, for publishing false reports about his marriage to his current wife, Precious.
Recall that the online platform had in a viral report alleged that Chief Fani-Kayode had been been physically abusing his wife of three years – Precious – and mother of his only son, Aragorn.
The report also claimed that the PDP chieftain denied paternity of his wife’s latest pregnancy, which has been revealed to be triplets, accusing an unnamed U.S-based disc jockey of being responsible for impregnating Precious.
Mr. Fani-Kayode, who has since denied all the allegations, has caused his lawyers, DPC Attorneys and Solicitors, to write a letter to the publisher and editor-in-chief of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, demanding a retraction of the report, an apology in two national dailies as well as N10 billion in damages.
In the letter, the lawyers gave the platform 14 days within which to comply with the ex-minister’s demands or be prepared for a libel suit in both Nigeria and New York.
