In a statement on Monday, Onwenu, the Director General of the National Centre for Women Development, noted that the report was entirely false.
Signed by her Special Assistant, Lami Makoji-Ojo, the statement quoted Onyeka as expressing shock and disappointed by the report, which she said was “planted” to damage her hard-earned reputation.
“Let it be placed on record that the said story is false in its entirety. It is obviously a figment of the sponsor’s depraved imagination, as Lady Onyeka Onwenu does not control access to Aso Rock, nor was involved with the disbursement of funds to any group.
“Mrs. Onyeka was never in a meeting with Patience Ozokwor or any artist for that matter and was never involved in a quarrel or fight with anyone”, the statement said.
The alleged quarrel between the two actresses was said to be over the control of the disbursement of President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign funds.
Also reacting Ozokwor, denied the allegation of rift between her and Onwenu.
She said: “I really do not know why people write what they can’t investigate. Ms. Onyeka Onwenu and I do not have any issues. I have never been to her office before and she has never been to mine.
“We see at different functions and greet ourselves with respect accordingly. Why should they write false stories about us just to sell their papers? Anyone who stains my name that I have struggled to build will have to answer to God in heaven.
“I am not a new actor that will be looking for scandals on the internet. If I have issues with anyone, I walk up to the person call him or her and trash it out and then move on”.
