Chief Femi Fani Kayode (FFK), in his reaction to the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi’s threat to sue him over his post on his twitter account over the $43million found in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos State said that; “We have been inundated with calls concerning about a threat by Rotimi Amaechi to sue Chief Fani-Kayode for defamation over the $43 million issue.
‘’We are not in any sleep over this matter. We have not received any court processes or letters from Amaechi but when we do so, our lawyers will respond vigorously and appropriately.’’
Also, Governor Ayodele Fayose’s aide, Lere Olayinka, in his own reaction said that he was not aware of any suit.
“I am not aware of any letter, I am not aware of any suit.”
Olayinka had stated that; “The Osborne Towers, a luxury residential complex in Ikoyi, Lagos, where the EFCC said it found $43,447,947,27, 000 pounds (sic) and N23,218, 000 on Wednesday, is owned by Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi. The house was built by Alhaji Adamu Muazu, the former Chairman of PDP through a loan from GTBank. He could not repay the loan so GTB took over the house and allocated the penthouse to Muazu and two flats. Rotimi Amaechi bought TWO of the flats (7A and 7B). He then gave 7A to Mo Abudu, the TV presenter; who is suspected to be his girlfriend.”
FFK had tweeted that the NIA’s story regarding the over $43million (N13billion) was fake, adding that “The $43m is Rotimi Amaechi’s. He owns the flat (where) it was found in too.”
