Fani-Kayode Beat Me During Pregnancy – Ex-Wife

GOT: Wife reports Fani-Kayode

The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has been accused by his ex-wife, Precious Chikwendu, of beating her up when she was pregnant.

The former beauty pageant also accused Fani-Kayode of confining her to a hospital when she attempted to escape.

Precious on Friday made the allegations in an affidavit she deposed to in support of an originating motion brought pursuant to Section 69 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003.

She disclosed that she met the former Minister in 2014 at the peak of her career and they soon fell in love and began living together and had four children, a son age five and a set of triplets age three.

The former beauty queen said, “From the early days of our relationship, the respondent (Fani-Kayode), has always maintained a lifestyle of utter disregard to my feelings. This was evident in the way and manner the respondent assaulted me while pregnant with our first son.”

The respondent (Fani-Kayode) kicked me severally on my stomach over a petty argument that ensued. It was my friend, Vanessa, who was around at the material time that intervened at the nick of time to save me.”

“I had to leave the respondent’s (Fani-Kayode’s) house a few days after this incident. The respondent (Fani-Kayode) repeated the same act when I was pregnant with triplets, this time it was my mother and sister, Faith, that intervened.”

She recalled that her ex-husband and a former Divisional Police Officer of Asokoro Police Station drugged her.

Precious added that after she started living with Fani-Kayode things soon turned sour as he began exhibiting signs of paranoia.

The ex-beauty pageant alleged that the former minister accused her of infidelity and on several occasions locked her out of their home located on Aso Drive, Asokoro, Abuja.

Chikwendu said, “I was incarcerated at a hospital for a period of two weeks. I was separated from my six-month old triplets and a year old son at the time.”

She noted that her ex-husband had denied her access to her children for several months, asked the court to compel Fani-Kayode to give her a monthly payment of N3.5m for the upkeep of the four sons.

According to Chikwendu, Fani-Kayode currently spends N1.8m on food, toiletries and others on the four children every month while N575,000 is spent monthly on clothing.

She said Fani-Kayode has continued to deny her access to the children in order to compel her to return to the marriage.

The ex-beauty pageant alleged that in a bid to spite her, Fani-Kayode had been taking pictures of the children with different women and posting them on social media.

In a response filed by one Oluwafemi Popoola on behalf of Fani-Kayode, the ex-minister said he had not been properly served with the court processes and hence could not respond appropriately.

The affidavit Popoola deposed to read in part, “Except there is service or proper service of the originating processes filed in this case on the respondent/applicant, this honourable court will lack jurisdiction to conduct further proceedings.”
