The estranged wife of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, Precious Chikwendu, has sought the enforcement of her fundamental human rights as she has dragged him to a High Court in Abuja.


Recall that Femi Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu had a whirlwind romance but soon came toppling down that has since turned sour.

Lawyer of Precious, Abdul-Aziz Jimoh,  revealed that he had tendered in the court papers to sue her ex-husband, Fani-Kayode, Inspector-General of Police, his officers for harassing her human right.

According to the court papers, she is demanding a whooping amount of N800m as damages.

In an affidavit in support of her court application, Precious stated that

“I was in a most tempestuous and violent relationship with the fifth respondent (Fani-Kayode), a qualified legal practitioner, a politician and a former minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The fifth respondent and I have four children together and I am forcefully separated from our children, who are all minors.

Consequent upon the unbridled violence perpetrated against me by the fifth respondent and the forceful separation from our children, I filed a suit in the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, with Suit No CV/372/2021.

Rather than allow the contending matters placed before the FCT High Court to be determined by the honorable court, the fifth respondent has persisted in using the Police officers under the control of the first respondent (IGP) and supervised by the second respondent (Commissioner of Police FCT) incessantly to intimidate and harass me with a view to interfering in the adjudicatory powers of a competent court of justice.”
