[ICYMI] Fani-Kayode threatens to sue Lai Mohammed for defamation


The Director of Media and Publicity of the Peoples Demo­cratic Party Presidential Cam­paign Organisation (PDPPCO), Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has de­manded a retraction of an alleg­edly libelous statement against him, which the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mo­hammed, caused to be published in a national daily, The Nation.

Fani-Kayode, while denying the content of the report, titled: “We’re concerned about Fani-Kayode’s mental status” and the innuendoes contained in it, pub­lished on Tuesday, the 3rd day of March, 2015, on page 6 of The Na­tion newspaper, said every allega­tion against him in the said pub­lication was false and defamatory of his person and character.

In a three-page letter by his law­yers, Ahmed Raji and Company, dated March 3, 2015, Fani-Kayode is demanding, in addition to re­traction of the said statement, an apology to him, within seven days of the receipt of his letter, by Lai Mohammed.
