Pere Egbi, a Nollywood actor and former Big Brother Naija housemate, has dispelled rumors that he is having an affair with Rashida Bello, the First Lady of Kogi State.
The actor denied the rumor in a tweet on Tuesday, calling it a “demonic lie.”
“For the record, Jackson Ude’s and others retweeting that garbage’s publication about me and the First Lady of Kogi State is a diabolical falsehood and a fiction of a twisted imagination.”
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 Ode 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

Pere also threatened to file a lawsuit against the Nigerian US-based journalist, Jackson Ude, who wrote the report on Twitter
“They must answer me in court both in Nigeria and in the United States of America where he is based.”
The US-based journalist in a tweet, had allegedly stated that there was gist around Abuja that Pere and the First Lady of Kogi state were alleged lovers.
“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.”
