SAHARA Reporters, an online news portal has earned a legal action from former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, for what the latter described as a fake news.
The news medium had published its findings detailing cracks in the marriage of the former minister.
The report was widely republished on blogs and other online mediums excluding HEADLINE.
The publication detailed how the former minister used a cleric to cover up the abuse of his wife, allegedly claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari was out to assassinate his wife.
Reacting, legal aides of the former minister has advised the Nigerian public to ignore “their baseless and desperate fabrications and treat them with the contempt that they deserve.”
A statement published on the minister’s website, also added that the “Fani-Kayode- have instructed their lawyers to take up the matter.”
