Rotimi Amaechi files N2bn lawsuit against Femi Fani-Kayode and Lere Olayinka
Nigeria Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has filed a N2 billion lawsuit against former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode and media aide to Ekiti state governor, Lere Olayinka.
He filed the lawsuit against them for claiming he owns the $43 million found in an apartment in Ikoyi recently. andFemi Fani-Kayode and Lere Olayinka went on Twitter last week to claim that the seized money belonged to Amaechi.
In separate letters to Femi and Olayinka, counsel to Amaechi, Lateef Fagbemi, demanded N1.5 billion from Olayinka and N500 million from Fani-Kayode.
According to Fagbemi, Amaechi has never owned a home in Lagos state. He stated that the claims by FFK and Olayinka can tarnish Amaechi’s reputation.
Fagbemi said the claims by both men constitutes a libel and is defamatory ‘aimed at impinging our client’s character and credit in the eyes of Nigerians and foreigners.’
