This morning Cheif Femi Fani-Kayode woke up to find a letter that was published as an advertorial in Thisday Newspaper purportedly by Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu's lawyer threatening to sue him for mentioning her in his article and claiming that she has never met him before. She also said that he was being malicious. The matter has of course been reffered toChief Fani-Kayode's lawyers who will now take it up.
Ordinarily he would have not have said a word about this matter because he sympathiseswith her for whatever she may have been going through. However now that she has put it in the public realmCheif Fani-Kayode is compelled to formally respond. To the assertion that he never knew her and that theywere never friends he says this is false and he asks why would he lie? The public evidence is to the contrary. Chief Fani-Kayode would not want to say anything to embarrass her because that would be ungentlemanly.
He sympathises with her delicate situation and once againhe expresses his regrets about the fact that his statement about her was misconstrued. We shall just leave it at that.
