A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has threatened to sue the management of Media Trust Limited, publishers of Daily Trust over what he described as libelous article against him published by the newspaper.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that Daily Trust on Sunday had published an article authored by one Iliyasu Gadu, criticizing Mr Fani-Kayode for verbally assaulting a Daily Trust reporter during a press conference in Calabar, Cross Rivers State.
Reacting to the publication, through a letter addressed to the Managing Director of the newspaper,the former aviation minister demanded an apology over the ‘libellous publication’.
The letter reads, “Be aware that our client has not only suffered immeasurable loss of goodwill, he is currently confronted with unbearable opprobrium by his fans, followers, and colleagues across the globe.
“Our client is alive to his rights both in law and equity but is disposed to an opportunity to undo the evil you have done by retracting the said insalubrious remarks on the same platform it was published and apologising to him in two other national dailies.
“You are also advised to enter into negotiations with us for the sum of N6bn being a token amount for penitence as opposed to the magnitude of infraction caused to our client’s nobility.”
