Precious Chikwendu, former wife of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has revealed that her marriage to the politician was based on lies and false pretenses.
In a long statement made available to Naija News on Friday, the ex-beauty queen claimed that the PDP chieftain has been lying to her since the start of their marriage.
Chikwedu denied Fani-Kayode’s accusations that she was a gold digger or an adulteress, alleging that Fani-Kayode has mental challenges.
According to her, the former minister punched her freely in the stomach during the time she was pregnant with her children.
She said: “While I was pregnant with the first child and later the triplets, FFK was habitually beating and mostly punching my stomach.
“Anytime he was angry and moody, describing my unborn babies as cockroaches or “a thing” that he will knock off my belly.
“In one of these attacks and kicking on my tummy, my late mom and my sister visited, and they threw themselves in between us to stop him from further attacks.
“In his anger, he hit my mum in the head. After that, FFK ended up accusing my sister of assault and got her detained at a police station for coming in-between his punches and me”.
She noted that Fani-Kayode lied to her about his marriage to Regina Amonoo, the woman the politician married when he was in Ghana, during the Abacha years.
Precious Chikwendu said she found out two years after they were married (2016) and that Fani-Kayode begged and convinced her to stay.
She said: “I want to state clearly that my marriage to FFK was based on false pretense as he lied that he had divorced his last wife, Regina.
“I found his marriage certificate in 2016 during the EFCC raid at our then home. When I confronted him about this, he said that he is about to start Regina’s divorce process and added that he had not seen her in the last ten years. He further explained that he never fancied her and that their relationship was that of a mother and son kind. At the time I left, he was technically married to her former wife.”
Precious Chikwendu also dismissed the claim by Regina, an ex-wife of Fani-Kayode that she gave her consent for me to be married to the former minister.
She said: “On Regina’s claim that she gave her consent for me to be married to FFK, this is a ridiculous and blatant lie. How could she have permitted a relationship she only found out about through social media? This event happened precisely on FFK’s birthday when he deliberately leaked my pregnancy photos after another argument between us and I had to leave the house. He did that to show the world that I was pregnant with his baby. Suffice it to say that we had agreed to keep the pregnancy private before then.”
