I Was Never Femi-Fani Kayode’s Girlfriend – Bianca Ojukwu

Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s widow and Nigeria’s ambassador to Spain, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, has described as false the claim by former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, that she was his girlfriend when she was a spinster.

Fani-Kayode had in his article, entitled: “Neither a tribalist nor a hater,” published in the social media and some segments of the national dailies (not The Sun), 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.

Reacting to this, Bianca said she had never met Fani-Kayode before, either at official or private level, not to talk of having an “intimate” relationship with him.

The ambassador, who spoke through her lawyers, Wall Street Attorneys, has, therefore, threatened to drag the former aide to ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo to court if, in the next seven days, he fails to retract his libelous publication against her.

In the letter from her lawyers to Fani-Kayode, dated August 27, 2013 and signed by Mike Ugwuanyi, Esq, Mrs. Ojukwu 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.

The letter written by Mrs. Ojukwu’s lawyers and obtained by The Sun read in part: “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. If the mouthing former Nigerian Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode thinks that the Igbo woman unconscious is cheap, and insensitive to honour and respect of her family and society is not guided by groomed culture and learning, he must trickle down to an episodic shame. The storm of Femi Fani-kayode’s atrocious tribal outburst and abuse of Igbo women will not be finished so soon. Wise and informed people do not carry easy play-cards on the streets of parochial racism. Until this guy is jailed, and that is where he belongs, no Igbo woman and groups who felt hurt by him and his writings should rest or clutch their legs and voices. As arrogant as Femi Fani-Kayode is, he will redesign his attacks and abuses on women and ethnic groups in Nigeria until he gets what he deserves in the power of cultural and legal reprisal, not in self media spread of attitude of tribal pomposity.

    • Who is this George? Any ststement under comments on this article supportive of the libelous claim being made by Ambassador Bianca Mrs Odumegwu Ojukwu is to the extent of its support equally libelous & may be joined in the suit against the original libeler – Femi Fani-Kayode. By the way can we draw lines between when relevance-seeking politicians are expressing themselves and when real facts are being put across. I also know that there is a mefical problem called schizophrenia.

  2. I HAVE KNOWN FEMI PRACTICALLY SINCE CHILDHOOD AND I MET WITH MOST OF HIS GIRLFRIENDS BUT AT NO TIME DID HE EVER MENTION THE NAME OF BIANCA. I AM NOT EVEN SURE HE KNOWS HER WHICH IS WHY I AM SURPRISED HAT HE WOULD LAND HIMSELF IN THIS MESS.I BELIEVE HE MAY HAVE BEEN MISQUOTED BUT HE HAS EXPRESSED REGRET AND OFFERED APOLOGY.
