A renowned journalist, Jackson Ude, has threatened to release a video exposing the romantic affair between BBNAIJA Pere and the 1st Lady of Kogi State.
Pere Egbi was a contestant and finalist on the Big Brother Naija reality show Season 6 ‘Shine Ya Eyes’. The reality TV star was accused of having a romantic relationship with the First Lady of Kogi State, Rashida Bello. Jackson Ude, a Nigerian American-based journalist and former aide to Goodluck Jonathan, made this accusation.
Mr. Jackson had claimed earlier in May that the BBNAIJA star was having a scandalous affair with Rashida Bello. He claimed in his tweet that the pair had been spotted together in a hotel, and the First Lady had given Pere a sum of N5 million on their first meeting.
“Why is #BBNaija Pere Egbi all over the place with Kogi First Lady, Rashida Bello? Gist around Abuja says that they are lovers. Egbi and Mrs Bello are said to have been sighted severally at the Hilton Hotel, Abuja. The gist is that when they first met, First Lady gifted Egbi N5 million”
Though the tweet has since been deleted, apparently it is still making the rounds. BBNAIJA Pere had taken to his Twitter page on the 31st of May to declare the allegations a “demonic lie” and threatened to deal with Jackson.
In response to the threats of a lawsuit by the BBNAIJA star, Jackson Ude has come forward again in June with threats to release an incriminating video of Pere and Rashida Bello. According to Ude, the initial post was only taken down because of interventions by senior officials who pleaded for it to be brought down.
The first lady of Kogi State is yet to make any comments regarding the allegations against her.
