Nigerian lawmaker and ex-Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has pleaded with the Federal High Court in Abuja to dismiss the N800million suit that was instituted against him by his estranged wife, Ms. Precious Chikwendu.
This comes barely 24 hours after Precious called out one “Mr Short Fuse” for allegedly harassing and being obsessed with her. Precious had complained that she is being persecuted and her rights violated because she’s asking to see her children.
The mom-of-4 claimed that whenever she shares a post where she looks at peace, policemen are sent to come and harass her.
She added that the unmentioned person uses his influence to fight her, keeps summoning her in court and pushing baseless cases against her.
In the counter affidavit FFK filed through his team of lawyers, he told the court that his Precious who is a former beauty queen deprived his children of breast milk on the account of the need to preserve her shape and she employed 12 nannies who cared for their children, excluding supervisors and nurses who equally attended to them.
He also claimed that Precious never extended maternal care to their children as she allegedly had a medical condition which deprived her of any filial bond with them.
He claimed that Precious threatened to kill him and their kids unprovoked, and puts their life at risk with her alleged “un-repented sexual escapades”.
Countering claim of his estranged wife being deprived access to their kids, he insisted that she is only playing the victim and does not deeply desire to be with them.
The former Minister however added that Precious is constantly engaging the children on audio and video calls without any form of interception.
He also alleged that Precious had an affair with a naval officer who accused her of misleading him by allegedly claiming that she is single.
He went on to describe a violent episode which led to police officers into intervening.
“She elected to leave her matrimonial home and consciously abandon the children, in order to optimize without restraints, her extra-marital and inordinate s*xual escapades.
As a fact, it is not surprising that Ms. Precious Chikwendu is capable of such reckless abandonment, because: whilst she was with me in the house afore-described, she employed 12 in-house nannies to cater for the children, excluding supervisors and nurses who equally attend to them; the Applicant did not at any time extend maternal care to the children, for the reason that she had a medical condition which deprived her of any filial bond with them; she deprived the children of the natural sucks or breast milk, also on account of the need to preserve her body shape, coupled with a contrived medical condition which she claimed would not permit her to breastfeed them,”
the statement read in part.
