Seized $43m: Rotimi Amaechi files N2bn lawsuit against FFK, Lere Olayinka

Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, has filed a N2 billion lawsuit against former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode and media aide to Ekiti state governor, Lere Olayinka, for claiming he owns the $43 million found in an apartment in Ikoyi recently. FFK and Lere Olayinka went on Twitter last week to claim that the seized money belonged to Amaechi.

In separate letters to FFK and Olayinka, counsel to Amaechi, Lateef Fagbemi, demanded N1.5 billion from Olayinka and N500 million from Fani-Kayode.


According to Fagbemi, Amaechi has never owned a home in Lagos state. He stated that the claims by FFK and Olayinka can tarnish Amaechi’s reputation.
“The story as uploaded by you is to our knowledge, blatantly false, malicious and is aimed at impeaching the credit of our client, a two-time speaker of the Rivers state of house of assembly, a two-time governor of Rivers state and current minister of the federation. Our client neither owns the house where the cash was found and your story and claim are unfounded.” read a letter sent to both men.
Fagbemi says the claims by both men constitutes a libel and is defamatory “aimed at impinging our client’s character and credit in the eyes of Nigerians and foreigners.” See copies of the court papers below...

Our great democracies still tend to think that a stupid man is more likely to be honest than a clever man, and our politicians take advantage of this prejudice by pretending to be even more stupid than nature made them

Bloody politicians, All of them are the same

There is nothing as hurtful and bad as false allegation. I can imagine his state of mind if indeed he is innocent. Yeah, let him prove his innocence and get the loose talkers hanged in bilions

@ fola Ajayi Really! He wishes. But speeches are parts of our fundamental human right. I prefer lies to no accusation. Nigeria is at a stage where w need to continue pointing hands until we get the bad eggs. #statebasedgovernment!!

We should get to the end of this. This one can not be swept under the carpet, I mean what a nuisance, whether blackmail or insinuation. All I knw is we should hear of the last of this. #state resource based system of government.

FFK will definitely give a robust response. Amaechi just dug his grave. Poor Mo. she is going down with him.

Media court case, this na case wey no go see the light of the day. If you Amaechi have house in Lagos State and you lie say u don't have house in Lagos State you will end up a shameful man.
