Fani-Kayode Withdraws Statement About Dating Bianca Ojukwu
Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has withdrawn the statement he made that he had an intimate relationship with late Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu's wife and Nigeria's Ambassador to Spain, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu.
In a statement by his lawyers, Fani however said the claim by Bianca that they were not friends and had never met was 'patently false'.
His statement reads:
Our client knew Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu in the early to mid-80′s 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 her in his article titled: 'A Word For Those Who Call Me A Tribalist' were indiscreet. He hereby withdraws them.”
