Femi Fani-Kayode has yet again attacked a journalist working with Arise Television for asking a question during a shouting match-like press conference organised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign council.

In a video seen by TRIBUNE ONLINE, Fani-Kayode, who lost control of his temper, described the journalist as ‘very rude’ for performing her duty.

“You can’t tell us how to answer questions… No! O ma laya o (you have mind). You’re very rude,” says a visibly furious FFK.

Fani-Kayode, who has a history of shouting at journalists, is popularly known for his short fuse. 

In 2020, Fani-Kayode also attacked a journalist working with Daily Trust newspaper for asking about the source of funding for his recent tours.

In the old video, Fani-Kayode described the journalist as ‘very stupid’ for asking such a question.

There have been back and forth in recent times following the outcome of the 2023 Presidential election as opposition parties have called for the cancellation of the poll for lacking transparency and accountability.
