Fani-Kayode Denies Attacking Lai Mohammed

Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has denied claims by the Daily Independent Newspaper that he referred to the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as a liar in his recent article on why the United States government has refused to sell arms to Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram.

Fani-Kayode in a statement on Sunday July 26, 2015, by his Special Assistant, Jude Ndukwe, said that it was mischievous and malicious to attribute such statement to him, saying there was no mention of Lai Mohammed in the entire article.

He accused the newspaper of manipulating his statement to mislead its readers, saying such manipulation was unethical and unprofessional.

He therefore demanded for a retraction of the statement from the organisation and withdrawal of the offensive publication from its website.
