This story was first seen on PUNCH NIGERIA and SHARAH REPORTERS.
The popular Nigerian blogger Stella Dimokorkus had in a report alleged the separation was to domestic violence involving the triplet sons who were not fathered by Fani-Kayode but conceived through IVF and Chikwendu had demanded a DNA test.
In a letter signed by Femi Fani-Kayode’s lawyer, Mr. Adeola Adedipe, dated September 16, 2020, the former minister described the report as preposterous.
Part of the letter reads thus:
“Our client is aggrieved and has instructed us to draw your attention to these libelous breaches of his person and family. By this publication, our client has received denigrating phone calls and messages across the globe by virtue of which he now sufferers immeasurable loss of goodwill.
“However, he is inclined to draw a curtain over the wild and spurious claims if you retract the allegations on the same platform they were published and consequently apologise to him in two other national dailies.
“You are also advised to enter into negotiations with us for the sum of two billion naira only being a token amount for penitence. Please bear in mind that you have 14 days from receipt of this letter to comply with the highlighted mitigating measures, the failure of which will leave our client with no preferred alternative than to seek redress in court.”
The former minister said he was disturbed about the manner in which the report was written which insults the sensibilities of unsuspecting readers.
He denied allegations that he retrieved the car he bought for his estranged wife and had left her broke.
Fani-Kayode said it was saddening that his innocent little children could be dragged into such a report, subjecting them to ridicule.
