Bianca: Fani-Kayode opens up

42

By WILLY EYA

Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has formally withdrawn his claim on Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, wife of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and Nigeria’s envoy to Spain.

The former minister had claimed to have had an intimate relationship with Bianca some years ago, prompting the former beauty queen to deny the claim and asking for an apology, with a threat to go to court.

In a statement, yesterday, Fani-Kayode admitted that some of the words he used to describe his friendship with Bianca, in his article entitled: “A Word for those who call me a tribalist,’’ were indiscreet, hence, his decision to withdraw them.

The  statement, signed by Mr. Akinola Babatunde Rotimi, entitled: “Re: Statement on Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu,” stated: “We represent Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, the former spokesman to President Olusegun Obasanjo and the former Minister of Culture and Tourism and Aviation.

“Our client knew Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu in the early to mid-80s when he was a student at London University and Cambridge University respectively.  They were good friends at the time and they had a few mutual friends who are still alive today. The bizarre, absurd and inexplicable assertion that they were not friends and that Ambassador Ojukwu has never met our client is patently false.

“Though he has not seen her for over 25 years, he spoke to her on the phone when her husband passed on last year.

“As our client said earlier, through his press secretary, some of the words he used to describe his friendship with Ambassador Ojukwu in his article titled: “A Word For Those Who Call Me A Tribalist,” were indiscreet. He hereby withdraws those words.’’

It will be recalled that Fani-Kayode had, in the article, published in the social media and some segments of the national dailies, claimed to have met with Bianca when she was Miss Bianca Onoh at the Cambridge College and had “intimate” relationship with her together with two other Igbo ladies.

Following the controversial article, Bianca’s lawyers had written a letter to Fani-Kayode asking him to apologise and also retract the statement claiming he dated her many years back or face a lawsuit. In the letter, Bianca said she’s never met Fani-Kayode before.

Bianca, who spoke through her lawyers, Wall Street Attorneys, threatened to drag Fani-Kayode to court if he failed to retract his libelous publication against her within seven days, which expires today.

In the letter from her lawyers to Fani-Kayode, dated August 27, 2013 and signed by Mike Ugwuanyi, Bianca demanded that the former minister writes an apology and retraction of the said libelous publication in The Sun and Thisday newspapers, as well as publish it in the online publication, where it emanated, in the next seven days or face litigation.

Part of the letter written by Bianca’s lawyers states as thus: “We have been briefed and our services retained by Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain to demand from you an unreserved apology and a retraction of a false and malicious statement, which you published online and also caused to be published in the Leadership Newspaper of August 16, 2013.

“In the said article entitled, ‘Neither a Tribalist nor a Hater,’ you recklessly alleged, as follows: ‘I was not a tribalist when I had a long standing and intimate relationship with Miss Bianca Onoh…’, a statement, which you know is untrue and unfounded, but only calculated to lower our client’s esteem and damage her national and international reputation.

“Our client has never met you, does not know you in person and has never had any official or private relationship with you, how much more ‘a long-standing and intimate relationship.’

“Our client is therefore, outraged by your bizarre and scandalous allegation and the numerous mails and telephone calls she has received from friends, relations and admirers who are equally embarrassed and who seek to confirm the veracity or otherwise of your false and reckless publication.

“Your apparent lame and half-hearted attempt, as published in the Leadership Newspaper of 17th August 2013, to clarify your false and malicious allegation falls far short of a retraction and does not sufficiently address the damage to our client arising from the widespread dissemination of your false publication and is therefore unacceptable to our client.

“In the circumstances, we demand, on the instruction of our client that you submit to her a clear and unqualified apology and retraction published in The Sun and Thisday newspapers in addition to having the retraction published online.

“Take note that should you fail to tender the apology and publish a retraction of your false and malicious publication, seven days next after your receipt of this demand notice, our further instructions are to seek appropriate redress in court. And that shall be without further recourse to you. Be properly guided.”

  1. Femi Fani Kayode is a product of a thuggery family, so what do you expect. If not for Obasanjo who believes in “Father to son” leadership in Nigeria, Femi who is not fit for any decent position in any establishment, would not have smelt any position at Federal level.

    Sleeping or claiming to sleep with any woman from any tribe outsied yours does not make you a non tribalist.
    Femi felt that by claiming to have had an affair with Bianca Ojukwu, nee Onoh, that will raie his battered profile, too bad he was just hving a malarious dream of sleping with a pretty Igbo girl.

    A Thug will always remain a thug any day any time.

  2. E X P O S E D !
    Femi Fani- Kayode has exposed his idiocy. Check, history has repeated itself. Fani kayode his father was randy, boastful,reckless, addicted and highly tribalistic. Bianca should forget this drug addict

  5. I am disppointed in Fani Koyode, i thought he was a Refined Nigerian who should be Role Modle, i never knew he is still in the` WOOD`. Some people should be grateful to OBJ.

  6. The lawyer of Bianca demanded for an unreserved apology and a retraction of a false and malicious statement
    but what Femi Fani Kayode and his local lawyers presented is far from her demands.
    FROM YOUR STATEMENT BELOW THIS IS NOT AN UNRESERVED APPOLOGY:
    “Our client knew Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu in the early to mid-80s when he was a student at London University and Cambridge University respectively. ( THEY WERE GOOD FRIENDS) at the time and they had a few mutual friends who are still alive today. The bizarre, absurd and inexplicable assertion that they were not friends and that Ambassador Ojukwu has never met our client is patently false.”
    This woman said she doesn’t know you from Adam period! why are you still claiming that you were friends?

    I think fani kayode should go back with his local attorney to amend the apology otherwise I will advice Bianca to sue them straight away so that they will face the music of slander and labeling.
    I am not satisfied with this apology.

  7. This crack muncher called Kayode is a typical yoruba dushbag who loves to play a hate on progressive people instead of emulating them.. His father and Obasanjo were the main tribalistic confusionists that propagated the laughable gallantry and valour of their cowardly folks at every Biafran towns and villages. No matter how they left en masse to the United Kingdom in a hurry, still they remained behind like buttocks.

  8. What a compound fool, this man has shown himself to be nothing but a complete clown. I’m sure the last is not yet heard about this matter, knowing Bianca as one lady who can hardly play fools-gladly. I think OBJ owes this nation unreserved apology for unleashing this types of awada-kerikeri characters on her.

  9. Bianca I hail you I know you are true daughter of Igbo land and that you can never disapoint us forget about Adaobi Uchegbu who messed herself up and not the igbos, iyom gburugburu ekenekwaam

  10. I dnt even know the adjective 2 use to qualifie this stupid kayode, and his tribe in general. They are all liars. Inculding lagos Governor who rush to court 2 stop jona jang 4rm parading himself as the Chairman, nigeria Governor forum. And before the matter comes for hearing, he rush back to court again begging 2 withdraw the case. It runs in their blood. Stupid set of people. Liars!

  11. Instead of opening up his mouth, Fani-Kayode should open up his bank account(s) and return the money he looted from Nigeria’s coffers.

  12. Very disappointing personality, you can imaging the type of people Obasanjo like to work with?, he does not even have a liver to owned up to all the rubbish he said. FFK, you a a total disgrace, why claiming what you are not?, mr too know, as if he will be the only person to have studied abroad, loud mouth.

  13. @ Israel, I agree with you ad idem, OBJ owns Nigerians unreserved apology for bringing this junk and posting him into those sensitive positions he held. By now, the world will be shaking their heads wandering the type of people we parade as our leaders. He is a really really pitiable vulture.

  14. That Femi Kayode needs help is obvious now. He is one man who was in Govt and I do not know why he was hoisted upon us. He is full of mouth. Wish he can tame his arrogant tongue

  15. Ejike, New York. on

    Those of you who commented that there is element of truth in every rumor have now seen it that most of the , rumors is just rumor fabricated to malign people. It’s good you are reversing yourselves now. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  16. I think it’s gross irresponsibility for such comment to come out of a high profile personality to another.
    Very childish, maybe the drug has not really worn out.
    Gutter to grace and back to gutter. Silly boy.

  17. Femi Fani Kayode stories should be off national papers because Nigerians are tired of reading about the hopeless son of lunatic Remi Fani Kayode who with his accomplishes indirectly truncated the young independent Nigeria. He opened a can of worm by throwing mud at the Igbos and people who followed his activities while in London have spoken out. Femi was known to have frequented gays clubs and had some regular friends in those clubs. Femi was also known to have been seriously involved with junk drugs. Please take his stories off national papers.

  18. Femi Fani Kayode has shown his stupidity and madness which actually is triggered by remnants of hard-drugs; and rehad that was not properly done. However, the case should go on because he has succeeded only in buying time, not apologising as demanded by lawyers of Amb. Ojukwu. To be honest, i have instructed my lawyers to be joined as an interest person to the suit, as well as several Igbo people too. This should be a water tight case, which my lawyers have coined “femigate.” We shall extract the stolen money that is making this buffoon not to be respectful and reasonable.

  19. Fani-Kayode is a classic example of Nigerian elites sending their irresponsible children abroad to study, while there, those knuckle heads and nut jobs turned to partying. And when they return to Nigeria, people’s like OBJ compensate them again with plum jobs and you wonder why Nigeria has been moving in circles for fifty two years. Fani-Kayode has been drowning in the cool-aide of stupidity and drug use for so long. His half hearted retraction is not acceptable and Bianca must proceed with her litigation to hit this imbecile in the pocket if he hasn’t finished all his money on drugs.

  20. My regret still goes to any spinster , women of substance, married women and all Lady socialites that shares common greetings to this man without front teeth because Kayode Fani Femi of today can destroy your beautiful marriage with sex scandal.
    Some pinch he took years back are now resurfacing in the year 2013 and that is typical life of a real junky. The signs and symptoms of insanity arising from a hard drug addict always reoccur as years passes bye.
    It’s an incurable disease. All women in this country should take note . The Kayode you know has gone to a different kingdom . God , please sanitise his soul while I appeal to the wife to take heart.

  21. The solicitors to Fanikayode have never done what they were suppposed to do,this is no apology as they failed to address the main topic.There is only one word at the epicentre of Femi’s write up& that word is ‘intimate’.Do they want me to tell them the meaning of intimate in a relationship that involves a man and woman?This so called apology lacks the ingredientes to douse tension&tempers the word intimate provoked.U may know somebody that does not mean u are intimate with him or her.I warn every media house &tribe to know who&whom should be given that accolade ‘chief’.This is not pre-fixed to the names of irresponsibles& undesirables.Be ye all warned now.

  22. Fani kayode is a core tribalist. Tribalism is engraved in his blood and marked on his cheeks. What has being friends got to do with his defence of not being a tribalist. He looks a drug addict, an amorous idiot and a product of a polygamous father. Let Bianca sue him right away except she has any skeleton in her hand bag. What apology does she want? what proof does fani have to argue in court in defence of this careless statement of intimate relationship?

  23. Basket mouth femi always seeking cheap recognition. Your ‘notice me’ has gotten you to a bad corner this time around. You are a jurasic disappointment to the yorubas. God help you this time around cos you have drawn the hornet’s nest and you know the result. Stupid boy. GOD BLESS NIGERIA.

  24. Hmmmmm,i can see that for the first time in history everybody in this forum spoke in unison,everybody spoke with one voice by condenming the action of one man that calls himself Femi-Fani Kayode,irrespective of our different cultural diverse,be you Igbos,Yorubas or Housas,everybody united together to condemned the childish,tribalistic and dirty utterances by this good for nothing and prodigal son that calls himself Femi-Fani kayode.Even his Yoruba kinsmen join in condenming his lousy and unguided comments

  25. Nothing we can do as individuals in this country, our leaders will just bring out anything to keep us busy, our leaders both present and past have no iota of respect for us, so they can say anything and leave us to debate on, look at what some ppl are saying that he had stolen money with him, let her sue him so he can spend it, others are blaming OBJ for fielding him in the first place to be a minister, just imagine silly comments! This kind of stories should not be given response to in the first place. Cursed people (Nigerians) who are waiting for God to do what they can do for themselves.

  26. Matthias Joseph Okoro on

    I pity for the present igbo ladies who are blindly dating ofe mmanu people. They yorubas are disgruntled charlatans and will always want to start what they can,t finish. FFK is a good example who has demonstrated that trate. He claimed in the trashed that was polished that igbos have short memories, but his porous brain that has an accumulated layers of drugs remnant could not help him to remember the kind of relationship that he had with Bianca. His rotten brain could not also help him to give a real account of what made Ifeajuna and Nzeogu to annihilate the corrupt Northern politicians. millions of igbos that died during the war died because Northerners were using yorubas as slaves. And, to the igbos, that was totally unacceptable, hence when they framed up Awo and jail him our igbo majors in the military were not happy. They decided to bring about an action that will fee him. Today all we can get is betrayals and invectives unleached on us. FFK you area junk of disappointment. when you were aviation minister planes fall from the sky everyday like sick birds, but an igbo ministers corrected that arnormalies created by your drug brain. What should open now for Nigerian to see is your account and not your smelling fangs.

  27. It is only in Nigeria that a minister (Secretary of State) will regard, luring women to bed as an achievements and contribution to the Nation. – FEDECO -

  28. Mr Femi or whatever ur name was, I told you that the time will come when you will observe that you have nothing in ur brain, what a child see while standing the father has seen it will still seating. U opened ur mouth in the pages of newspapers and was calling the entire Igbo’s to come and face you in a televison debate if they can. Did I not call you a coward for saying it! the time is here now and you cannot come out again and open mouth. Now you are beging, you have to come out in that same television and tell the whole Nigeria and the world in general that you were confused when you were saying you had intimate relationship with late Ojukwu’s wife. I want you to go to church and say thank u lord because Ikemba is dead. U would have seen the true side of an Igbo man, Idoit! like father like son.

  29. Common,this not an apology as demanded as to stop Bianca from going to court to bring this boy to his knees. Thank God we all went to University in the UK. Heaven knows what sort of abrakadabra Femi would have been telling us because he studied in London.

  30. Common,this is not an apology as demanded as to stop Bianca from going to court to bring this boy to his knees. Thank God we all went to University in the UK. Heaven knows what sort of abrakadabra Femi would have been telling us because he studied in London. Or, it could be tha a Cambridge product does not know the meaning of intimate. (laughs)

  31. Fani Kayode F, is a compound fool and a real bigot whose acclaimed cambridge degree is nothing but a total disaster, waste and nothing to write home about.
    This illiterate of first order can’t actually differentiate between intimate relationship yet still claiming to be one of the finest yariba educationist!!!

  32. pls is this the apology? no no no no!!!!! I think this is just the preamble.

    the statement should be that I Kayode hereby retract all my comment about my intimate relationship with MISS NIGERIA – Bianca and tender an unreserved apology on my knees.

  33. People should not be insulting Fanikayode. Intead let advice BIAFRA ambasador to SPAIN to stay at her duty post.I do belive Fanikayode statement it is a fact.

  34. Ya-dudu DUDU IS SHIT That’s why you reason from your Anus. Fuck YOUR mother why not post your picture in the media let’s see how you look.

  35. Udam Ochiaghandigbo on

    I sincerely think that he did it. He is only retracting because of the flack that he’d received, and does not want to be dubbed “kiss and tell” boy.

  36. Yadudu or watever you called yourself your mad and if you dont know wat to comment better shut that guttert you called mouth up
