'My wife caught in the act of adultery with a Naval Officer' - Fani-Kayode tells court

Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu

Nigeria's former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has informed an Abuja Federal High Court, that it was his estranged wife, Precious Chikwendu, that walked away from the house and refused to return, despite all entreaties for her to come and see her children.

Fani-Kayode equally stated that there was no time he threatened the life of Precious Chikwendu.

The former minister stated this in a counter-affidavit he deposed to before the court in opposition to the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Precious Chikwendu.

According to Fani-Kayode, "On the threat to life and peaceful existence, prompted by exposed adultery, she is the person who consistently threatens to kill me and the children, even when she is not provoked.

“The applicant (Precious) puts my life at risk and that of the children, anytime she realized I had discovered her un-repented sexual escapades, either at attempts of such on my men staff, or the actual acts in which she was caught pants down with a man or men.

“A related incidence occurred sometime in December 2019, when the Applicant was caught in the act of adultery with one Naval Officer (Lt. CDR Idenyi) in a hotel located at NAF Valley Estate Asokoro- Abuja.

“This discovery was made because I ensure adequate security watch over my family, for reasons connected to my political involvements; and the fact that my security guards were apprehensive that the Applicant was constantly visiting dark and blacklisted places, which were not good for her safety.

“This adultery incidence was reported to the Police and the Naval officer confessed to it; that she misled him, claiming she was a single woman.

“The matter was recommended for prosecution, but I pleaded with the Police to step it down, to avoid further embarrassments. A certified true copy of the Police Report is shown to me and marked Exhibit J” Fani Kayode deposed in his counter-affidavit.

“It was immediately after this incidence that the Applicant became more hostile, aggressive and threatened to kill her kids”.

In the meantime, the case could not proceed on Wednesday for hearing due to the absence of Justice Inyang Ekwo.

The matter was consequently adjourned to November 29, 2021, for hearing.
