Kayode Salako, husband of Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola Salako, has blasted a journalist, Femi Adepoju over reports that their marriage crashed.
On Monday, Adepoju reported that the marriage between the duo crashed, quoting a source as saying that an official announcement of the split would be made on February 5, 2020.
According to the report, there are insinuations that Foluke was allegedly flirting around with a popular and influential politician in Lagos.
The report also said that Salako came into the marriage with about seven vehicles but he is left with just one, which is believed to be worse than not having a car at all.
But reacting to the report in a statement, Salako described it as malicious, saying the reporter’s intention was to kill his wife emotionally and psychologically.
Salako’s statement read: “This is the face of the irresponsible; mentally crude; professionally bankrupt alleged media person behind the release of my rumored crashed marriage to my wife, Foluke Daramola Salako from his blog on Monday, January 27, 2020.
“The personal findings I made immediately I started receiving calls from different media sources about the breaking news shows the primary source of the devilish story is from the blog and media source of one Mr. Femi Adepoju.
“He is Femi Adepoju and as I heard, he was the Chief Press Secretary to the former governor of Ondo State, Segun Mimiko.
“Even if your media source heard anything like that, a professional journalist or media practitioner, would make effort to reach out to the people the news is all about for proper confirmation and the balancing of the contents of your story before releasing it to the public.
“Obviously his intention is to kill Foluke Daramola Salako emotionally and psychologically!”
However, Salako, stated that he received another information that a journalist named Olutade Oluwatosin Simeon, reported the story by using Femi Adepoju’s blog.
According to Salako, the purported report has led to his wife’s miscarriage, adding that she has been psychologically devastated since the news broke out on Monday.
“My wife just informed me this morning that she has lost the pregnancy again. She has been psychologically devastated since the news broke out yesterday morning.
“She cried all through the night and she lost the pregnancy she had been growing for more than 8 weeks this morning.
“Some of these ‘irresponsible’media people have been attacking our marriage since the 7 years we have been living together.
“Is she the first woman that would marry in the circumstance she married me?
“There are some big men we are celebrating in Nigeria today that also left their first wives for their own reasons to marry another women and today, they are doing well together, so why Foluke! Foluke!! all the time.”
