Former Big Brother Naija housemate Pere Egbi has refuted the claims that he is having an affair with the first lady of Kogi State, Rashida Bello.
The former US marine turned reality TV star made this known via his Twitter page while reacting to a tweet that speculated the said relationship.
“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,” he tweeted.
Pere’s post came hours after a Twitter user alleged that he was in a romantic relationship with the first lady.
“Why is #BBNaija’s Pere Egbi all over the place with Kogi first ladY, Rashida Bello? Gist around Abuja says they are lovers. Egbi and Mrs Bellos are said to have been sighted severally at the Hilton Hotel, Abuja. Gist is that when they first, the first lady gifted Pere 5M naira,” he tweeted.
The Twitter user has, however, deleted the tweet.
The first lady of Kogi state is yet to release a statement concerning the allegations levelled against her.
Pere was one of the housemates from the sixth season of the reality TV show.
