My Marriage To Fani-Kayode Was Based On Lies - Ex-Wife

One of Femi Fani-Kayode’s many ex-wives, Precious Chikwendu, has dragged the former Aviation Minister, the Inspector-General of Police and the Commissioner of Police Federal Capital Territory before the Senate Committee On Police Affairs.

Precious, in a petition to the Senate Committee, accused Fani-Kayode of threatening her life and using the Nigerian Police to harass her.

In the petition seen by PUNCH, counsel to Precious, Abdul-Aziz Jimoh alleged that Fani-Kayode was using the IGP, FCT Commissioner of Police and Chief Superintendent of Police James Idachaba to stop her from taking custody of her four children.

Jimoh said “Following Chief Fani-Kayode’s denial of access to her children our client proceeded to the FCT High Court on February 10th, 2021 and filed suit number CV/372/2021 against him.

“It is simply because of this suit that Fani-Kayode enlisted the services of the Nigerian Police Force to harass our client, by causing his lawyer to write a spurious petition to the police over the same matter pending in a court of competent jurisdiction.

“Chief Fani-Kayode, rather than submit to the jurisdiction of the court and defend himself as would most law abiding citizens, proceeded to level allegation against our client that she was involved in a “criminal consultancy, forgery and falsification of court records.

The said forgery was purportedly in respect of the receipt of court papers by Chief Fani-Kayode, who alleged that the signature presented by the court bailiff was a forged one.”

Our client has also fined a fundamental rights enforcement suit at the Federal High Court with the IGP and other senior police officers involved in the harassment and Fani-Kayode as parties and they have all been served with the court processes,” the petition added.

The IGP and his officers, having been served with the court processes for the enforcement of our client’s fundamental human rights on July 12, 2021 have since continued to invite, harass and detain her in police cell.”

According to Abdul-Aziz Jimoh, Precious is “asking the Senate Committee on Police Affairs to conduct a thorough and independent investigation into the issues raised in her petition and that the IGP be compelled to stop forthwith in engaging in a less salubrious alliance with Fani-Kayode in his child custody dispute pending at the FCT High Court and the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal.”
