Former Big Brother Naija star, Pere Egbi has been in constant back and forth with controversial journalist, Jackson Ude, after he alleged that Pere is in a romantic affair with Kogi State first lady, Rashida Yahaya Bello.
Jackson in a viral tweet claimed that Pere and the first lady of Kogi State had been seen multiple times at the Hilton Hotel in Abuja.
He went on to say that the first lady gave Pere N5 million the first time they met for reasons yet to be revealed.
Reacting to these allegations, Pere Egbi threatened legal action against the journalist. He described the publication as a demonic lie and a figment of a diseased imagination of Jackson.
“For the records, the publication about me and the First Lady of Kogi State is a demonic lie and a figment of a diseased imagination of Jackson Ude and those retweeting that rubbish, they must answer me in court both in Nigeria and in the United States of America where he is based”.
However, Jackson Ude has in a new tweet advised Pere to keep quiet instead of attempting to flex his muscles. The journalist warned Pere to remove his name from his tweets and also threatened to release the video of he and Rashida Yahaya Bello in a hotel in Abuja if the actor fails to keep his name from his mouth.
Clarifying the reason he deleted his earlier tweet, Jackson stated that senior officials pleaded with him to do so but he is ready to release it if the actor tries tackling him.
“Who the hell is BBNaija Pere Egbi? They better advise him to keep quiet. If I hear or see my name on this mention again, I will release the video and damn it. I deleted the earlier tweet because senior officials pleaded. But If he wants to flex muscles with me, try me”, Jackson wrote.
