Bianca Ojukwu is suing Femi Fani Kayode for defamation by claiming they had an intimate relationship while she was still a spinster. Here is a little summary;
Following the deportation of some Igbos from Lagos some weeks back, Femi Fani Kayode made some comments which made some people accuse him of being tribalistic. Reacting to these allegations, he claimed he has had intimate relationship with 2 Igbo women, one of which was Bianca (when she was a spinster). Being a Yoruba man, he believed this proved he was not tribalistic else he would not have dated from another tribe.
In a recent Thisday publication, Bianca Ojukwu's lawyers wrote to Femi Fani Kayode asking him to apologize and also retract the statement he made a few weeks ago about dating her some years back or face a lawsuit.
Letter from Bianca's lawyers below and Femi's response after the cut...
“We have been briefed and our services retained by Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain to demand from you an unreserved apology and a retraction of a false and malicious statement, which you published online and also caused to be published in the Leadership Newspaper of August 16, 2013.
