Linus Idahosa, fiancé of Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke has said he is still at a lost as to where a section of the media got the information that his fiancée’s family have stopped his planned wedding to their daughter, Stephanie Okereke.
In a chat, Linus decried the dearth of professional ethics and proper investigative journalism in Nigeria, and promised to deal with the writer who “created” the story.
“I know those who wrote the story, it’s just that the judicial system in Nigeria is too slow. If not, you should have heard of the steps we would have taken. One thing is sure, I`m not letting this go just like that.”
Asked what then is the true situation of things with Stephanie, Linus was quick to say, “My brother, no matter how public a man or a woman is, there are things you cannot discuss on the pages of newspapers. My fiancée’s family, for one, is very angry at the writer of that story.
“First, there is nothing like that happening and let`s assume the writer heard a story of that nature, is it right to head straight to the press without even calling the people involved?” he asked.
“Why are journalists getting lazy on the investigative part of their job? It shows publishers now employ half-baked and ill- trained people as journalists.
“Stephanie and I are still very much on course and they will see us get married soon. But my lawyers will make sure we sue and get justice for this embarrassing story,” Linus vowed.
Asked how his bride-to-be was taking the report, Linus replied: “She is not letting it get into her. We are all fine.”
