Newspaper columnist, Farooq Kperogi has said whoever advised Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode to sue Daily Trust over a “scathingly unflattering opinion article that an occasional contributor to the paper’s opinion pages wrote about him doesn’t love him.”
The Ex-Minister, on Tuesday, demanded the sum of N6billion and an apology published in other dailies, from the national daily for defamation of his character.
He made the demands on Tuesday in a letter signed by his lawyer, Adeola Adesipe.
The letter was sent to Daily Trust following an article titled “FFK, the Drug Addled Thug in Designer Wears” published by the paper on August 30, 2020, in which the writer, Iliyasu Gadu had described the former Minister as a drug addiction who once sought for rehabilitation in Ghana but had till date not been cured of the habit.
But, Kperogi, in a Twitter thread said the libel suit was needless.
