Estranged wife, to Femi Fani-Kayode, former Minister of Aviation, Precious Chikwendu breaks her silence with Psalms 126 vs 1-3.
In her Instagram post, Chikwendu quoted Psalm 126, speaking about being free from captivity.
“When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad,” she wrote.
Recall that on Wednesday, news broke that former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, and his ex-beauty queen wife, Precious Chikwendu, have separated.
“I am aware that they are separated and are not staying together as we speak,” Chikwendu’s uncle, Okey Onyemachi told PremiumTimes.
The couple has been married since 2014, have four sons, including a set of two-year-old triplets.
A family source on Wednesday said that the marriage broke down due to a health challenge which Chikwendu has been trying to manage since they became a couple.
Although unconfirmed news reported that the separation to domestic violence and alleged that the triplet sons may not have been fathered by Fani-Kayode as they were conceived through IVF and Chikwendu had demanded a DNA test.
However, Fani-Kayode has filed a pre-litigation letter to the blogger, Stella Dimokorkus, who reported the allegation.
In a letter signed by his lawyer, Mr. Adeola Adedipe, dated September 16, 2020, the former minister described the report as preposterous.
The letter titled, ‘Defamation of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode- Re: Femi Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu Part Ways Over Alleged Domestic Violence’, stated that the allegations were spurious and maliciously engineered.
The former minister said he was disturbed about the manner in which the report was written which insults the sensibilities of unsuspecting readers.
Also, Onyemachi in his chat with PremiumTimes denied Dimokorkus’s reports.
“I never witnessed any domestic violence incident but I am aware that they are separated and are not staying together as we speak, but reports of domestic violence are very funny and malicious,” he said.
“I am unhappy about the reports and my major concern is the children and why people are cooking up fake stories. The allegations that the kids aren’t chief’s is a big lie and unthinkable. Precious is my niece and I can confirm that all these stories are false.”
Few years ago, sources close to the distressed marriage told SaharaReporters that Mr. Fani-Kayode started physically abusing Precious from the first year of the marriage, a fate that befell her three predecessors. The violence, this website was told, increased as the years went by. He was said to have ordered her to abort the pregnancy that resulted in their son. Precious ignored him but got savage beating, including on her belly, for the recalcitrance. It has grown worse with the allegation of infidelity. A source said when Mr. Fani-Kayode came up with the allegation of infidelity, he hit the woman very violently in presence of their househelp, who he threatened with a gun by sticking the weapon in her mouth to warn her against squealing.
Precious Chikwendu and Femi Fani-Kayode He also instructed his bodyguard to hit Precious, who has since left their home and now sleeps at her boutique at Abacha Estate, Wuse Zone 4, Abuja. She is also said to have been relieved of the Mercedes Benz G-Wagon bought for her by Mr. Fani-Kayode from the copious sums of money made during his time as spokesperson of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign organization.
Precious, according to a source, is back to driving 2009 Honda car and has had her police escort withdrawn by the husband. Controversial preacher, Mr. TB Joshua, is said to have waded in and invited Precious to Lagos, buying her flight tickets.
But all the horrors Precious has been subjected to are masked by the husband’s extravagant show of confected affection on Facebook. On his Facebook page on Wednesday, Mr. Fani-Kayode posted a picture of himself and Precious accompanied with a post claiming that the tainted Apostle Suleiman exposed a plot assassinate “my beautiful wife, Precious Chikwendu, in 2018. The post, fizzing with the doctrinal lingo, described Precious as “the daughter of Zion”, “hidden in Christ” and ” covered by the blood of Jesus”.
This conveys the impression that things are smooth with them, a tactic he used in the case of Regina, his immediate former wife and mother of the last of his five daughters, Remi. Regina, a Ghanaian, said sources was a victim of serious abuse and had to put up with Mr. Fani-Kayode’s relentless womanizing. But even on her last birthday, he was effusive on Facebook.
His first wife, Saratu Attah, whom he married when he was 22, was also regularly pummeled. Sources said the woman, daughter of the late Mr. Adamu Attah, was viciously beaten for requesting a swimming pool in their home on Marine Road in Apapa, Lagos. When his father, the late Chief Remi Fani-Kayode, the beating intensified. Divorce later followed.
The next marriage was to Yemisi Odesanya, daughter of a judge. She is now known as Yemisi Wada after remarrying. In newspaper interviews, the woman told stories of Mr. Fani-Kayode’s viciousness and lack of care for their daughters, the reason for which he was excluded from the marriage of one of them, Temitope, in 2014. Despite the disconnect between him and the children, he never fails to advertise his “love” for them on Facebook on their birthdays.
