Don’t destroy the future of our children – Fani-Kayode cautions ex-wife

A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has called on his estranged wife, Precious Chikwendu, to stop ‘secretly feeding the media with damaging scandals’ adding that such a move could destroy the future of their children.

This is coming following a video posted by SaharaReporters with the caption “Femi Fani-Kayode, Caught On Tape Abusing His Now Estranged Wife, Precious Chikwendu.”

But while reacting to the video, the politician denied any form of abuse on his ex-wife, saying the video was mere propaganda to smear his image.

“This is nothing but a propaganda video. There was NO physical abuse.

“I repeat there was NO physical abuse whatsoever and she had been insulting and subjecting everybody, including family members, staff and children, to  PHYSICAL and VERBAL abuse the whole day. As usual, it was a nightmare!” Fani-Kayode stated in a Tweet post on Saturday.

However, in another series of Tweet posts on Sunday, Fani-Kayode cautioned his former wife, Precious to desist from disseminating scandals that could destroy the future of their children.  

He said, “I have chosen to take the high horse and I refuse to allow my estranged wife to turn the affairs of my personal life into a public circus. If she has any issues let her use the right medium as a responsible adult and mother and stop secretly feeding the media with damaging scandals geared towards the destruction of our children’s future.

“I have kept quite in order to protect my children, I have covered all her madness over the past 7 years & not once did I expose her. But the facts are there & the witnesses & evidence are readily available for the courts.

“I broke my silence yesterday only because my hand has been forced. Rather than focusing on the problem of brutality & evil plaguing our country, or the myriad of other issues holding citizens hostage, some people would prefer to spread and partake in what amounts to celebrity gossip & chopped videos.

Who in Nigeria does this benefit? What is the use? Those involved in this smear campaign are begging for further responses which I will not give them. My private relationship & any disagreements therein are just that: PRIVATE & I have learned my lesson on feeding into parasocial media culture.

“My children & their dignity comes first & I refuse to help these individuals tarnish their image any further. The ringleader of this media scandal and his/her collaborators may continue polluting news sites & blogs with spam & begging for crumbs of attention with wild tales as long as they wish.

“Acting is a professional field all on its own but thankfully so is law. Any & all videos, testimonies, documentation & other evidence coming from my end will only be displayed in court, where this issues can be resolved once and for all.

“If this person speaks the truth, they will be happy to meet me there, instead of peddling stories. My next tweets and posts will be focused solely on relevant issues. Thank you.”
