Femi Fani-Kayode has denied sending out a widely circulated message addressed to Christians earlier this week. He purportedly said in the message that his detention is an example of persecution of Christians and that he was offered amnesty by the minister of information, Lai Mohammed, on the condition that he decamps to “their anti-Christian party”.
In the article which he has now denied, FFK purportedly said that he received a revelation that Apostle Johnson Suleiman of the OMEGA fire ministry would be attacked because he is “one of the major voices crying out for justice in the body of Christ” as “the muslims are out to persecute Christians.”
A statement signed by Fani-Kayode’s media aide, Jude Ndukwe said, “This is to inform the general public that the purported message making the rounds that Chief Femi Fani-Kayode wrote a certain message to Christians and Apostle Suleiman from detention is not true.”
He described the message as “part of a long and systematic plot by mischief makers, his traducers and detractors to continue to discredit and malign his person and character, and cause disaffection among his friends, associates and supporters. We therefore urge members of the public to disregard that message and treat it as non-existent.”
Fani-Kayode is facing money laundering charges to the tune of N4.9 billion in a Lagos court.
