BEVERLY HILLS, October 05, (THEWILL) – Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation in the Olusegun Obasanjo administration, who has repeatedly engaged in public spat with women, says he has shielded his estranged wife, Precious Chikwendu’s madness over the years from the public in the wake of damaging claims that he physically abused her through their 7 years of marriage.
Fani-Kayode, who himself has a widely known history of mental instability, wrote on Monday that he would rather have the court system settle his quarrel with his former ‘Precious’ wife.
“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 quiet in order to protect my children, I have covered all her madness over the past 7 years and not once did I expose her. But the facts are there and the witnesses and 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 and 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 and chopped videos. Who in Nigeria does this benefit exactly? What is the use?
“Those involved in this smear campaign are begging for further responses which I will not give them. My private relationship and any disagreements therein are just that: private and I have learned my lesson on feeding into parasocial media culture.”
“Acting is a professional field all on its own but thankfully so is law. Any and all videos, testimonies, documentation and other evidence coming from my end will only be displayed in court, where these issues can be resolved once and for all.”
