Fani-Kayode separates from wife, demands N2bn from blogger


Femi Fani-Kayode

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has separated from his wife, Precious Chikwendu, after four sons together.

He has also written a pre-litigation letter demanding N2bn from blogger Stella Dimokorkus over a report he termed as libellous.

The report had stated that the crisis in his marriage is as a result of domestic violence and that he may not be the father of the triplet they had.

The report has been described as preposterous as seen in a letter signed by his lawyer, Mr. Adeola Adedipe.

The letter dated September 16, 2020, is titled, ‘Defamation of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode- Re: Femi Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu Part Ways Over Alleged Domestic Violence’,

In the letter, the former minister denied a claim in the report which says that he collected the car he bought for his estranged wife.

He also lamented that his children were dragged into the report which subjects them to ridicule.

The letter further read, “Our client is aggrieved and has instructed us to draw your attention to these libellous breaches of his person and family. By this publication, our client has received denigrating phone calls and messages across the globe by virtue of which he now sufferers immeasurable loss of goodwill.

“However, he is inclined to draw a curtain over the wild and spurious claims if you retract the allegations on the same platform they were published and consequently apologise to him in two other national dailies.

“You are also advised to enter into negotiations with us for the sum of two billion naira only being a token amount for penitence. Please bear in mind that you have 14 days from receipt of this letter to comply with the highlighted mitigating measures, the failure of which will leave our client with no preferred alternative than to seek redress in court.”

An uncle to Fani-Kayode’s estranged wife, Reverend Okey Onyemachi, told The PUNCH on Thursday that the allegations of domestic violence were false and asked members of the public to regard it.

“Where did they get all the false information from? Did they speak with Chief Fani-Kayode or Precious to ascertain if it is true? To the best of my knowledge, there was never any incident of domestic violence.

“Nobody should drag those little children into this sort of thing. Why would someone claim he is not the real father?”

Fani-Kayode and Chikwendu welcomed their first son in 2016, and in 2018, they welcomed a set of triplet boys.
