N13 Billion Lagos Apartment Money: Amaechi Threatens To Sue Fani-Kayode, Fayose’s Aide



The Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has threatened to sue a former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, and Lere Olayinka, an aide to Governor Ayo Fayose, for allegedly naming him as the owner of the Lagos apartment where over N13 billion was found last week.

Mr. Amaechi, through his lawyer, Lateef Fagbemi, informed Messrs. Fani-Kayode and Olayinka in separate letters dated April 14 that some comments they posted on social media amounted to defamation.

The letter to Mr. Fani-Kayode was addressed to his home in Abuja, and it detailed the former Minister of Aviation’s alleged defamatory statements.

“The attention of our client has been drawn to your tweet posted on your Twitter timeline (@realFFK) where you claimed that:

“The $43 million is Rotimi Amaechi’s. He owns the flat it was found in too (sic). NIA story is fake news! NIA does not keep cash in Minister’s flats”.

Mr. Amaechi’s lawyers said the claims as uploaded by Mr. Fani-Kayode were “blatantly false, malicious and aimed at impeaching the credit” of the minister, who’s also a former governor of Rivers State.

“Our client neither owns the cash nor the house where the cash was found and your story and claim are unfounded.

Either way there is no proof yet that it’s not Amaechi’s money….. Or is there?
