Precious Chikwendu has accused her ex-husband, Femi Fani-Kayode of domestic violence and then some during the course of their relationship.
The former beauty queen who is demanding full custody of the 4 children and shares with the former Minister of Aviation, accused him of beating her up at several occasions including when she was pregnant.
She made the allegations in a sworn affidavit she deposed in support of an originating motion brought pursuant to Section 69 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003.
“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.
“Sometime in 2018, in one of my attempts to leave the house with the children, the respondent in the company of the DPO of Asokoro Police Division, and her team of policemen handcuffed me and stripped me naked while someone from the crowd whom I initially mistook for a policeman forcefully injected me with a sedation. I was then abducted and 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 stated.
Since their split in 2020, Precious Chikwenndu alleged that Fani-Kayode had denied her access to her children and prayed the court to compel him to give her a monthly payment of N3.5m for the upkeep of the four sons.
