Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, has requested for total amount of six billion naira from Daily Trust Newspapers over Defamation.
In the news gathered, it was said that the money was in response to the article written by Daily Trust titled ‘FFK, the Drug Addled Thug in Designer Wears’.
According to him, “Dafamation of the character of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode by Ileyasu Gadu”.
However, Daily News Nigeria obtained that the writer blasted Fani-Kayode over his abuse of word ‘stupid’ used on Daily Trust Newspapers reporter, Ileyasu Gadu, at a Press Conference in Calabar.
Recall that during the conference meeting, the Reporter, Ileyasu Gadu, asked Fani-Kayode on who is bankrolling him, in which led to Fani-kayode’s choice of words by calling him “stupid”.
However, in the article, Gadu wrote that Femi Fani-Kayode attended Cambridge University, in which he was a drug addict.
Fani-Kayode thereby named the article a defamation and libellous write up as he demanded for apology publication on Daily Trust and other daily media.
