Fani-Kayode’s 4th marriage collapses

Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu

Former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has separated from his fourth wife, Precious Chikwendu.

The marriage broke down about four months ago over incessant domestic violence, which the former beauty queen could not condone any further.

Precious had since moved out of the marital home, with the ex-minister barring her from coming to the house or seeing the four boys, including the triplets, they had together.

Fani-Kayode has not denied the separation story, except to threaten blogger Stella Dimoko Korkus, who broke the story, with libel.

Stella Dimoko wrote that FFK may not have been the father of the triplets as they were conceived by IVF.

The blogger also reported that the ex-minister had retrieved the car he bought for Precious.

Fani-Kayode has denied some aspects of the story and threatened a N2billion libel suit, according to his lawyer, Adeola Adedipe.

Adedipe wrote:“Our client is aggrieved and has instructed us to draw your attention to these libelous breaches of his person and family. By this publication, our client has received denigrating phone calls and messages across the globe by virtue of which he now sufferers immeasurable loss of goodwill.

“However, he is inclined to draw a curtain over the wild and spurious claims if you retract the allegations on the same platform they were published and consequently apologise to him in two other national dailies.

“You are also advised to enter into negotiations with us for the sum of two billion naira only being a token amount for penitence. Please bear in mind that you have 14 days from receipt of this letter to comply with the highlighted mitigating measures, the failure of which will leave our client with no preferred alternative than to seek redress in court.”

Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu, got married in 2014.

It was his fourth marriage, with three others before having collapsed for the same reason: domestic violence.

Fani-Kayode’s first wife was Saratu Attah, daughter of former Kwara governor, Adamu Attah. They got married when he was 22. The marriage lasted between 1987 and 1990. They had a daughter together.

Next was his marriage in 1991 to Yemisi Olasunbo Adeniji.

She is now known as Yemisi Wada after remarrying. She and FFK married immediately she finished at the Law School.

The marriage collapsed after three years, with Yemisi already pregnant with the couple’s third child.

In an interview with Punch in 2015, she said she had no fond memories of the marriage.

“I have no fond memories of then except having my daughters, as I am sure he would say the same if asked. What people do not seem to realise is that we were together for only a very short while. The marriage itself lasted less than three years. The fact that I have three daughters makes it seem longer but I left just when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter”.

In 1997, FFK married again, a Regina Amonoo. This was when he was in Ghana, during the Abacha years.

He did not tie the nuptial knots again, until 2014, when he met Precious Chikwendu.

  • Fani-Kayode has to realize that ALL women are almost alike. With only little differences that are inconsequential.
    To succeed in women affairs, he needs to exercise utmost patience and must be prepared to overlook many, many things!
    Certainly, I must also point out that women too should be prepared to overlook many, many things in any relationship with men IF it is to succeed.
    Finally,gender based violence should be avoided by both parties at all costs in any sort of relationship.

  • One would expect those who passionately and fiercely criticize those who manage the country to easily and quietly manage their own private homes.
    On what platform does an insolent serial divorcee stand to prompt us to move against a government that has survived for 5 years and still on.
    Men should learn to remove the log from their own eyes before contemplating removing the speck in another man's eye.

  • The truth is that she was caught in a hotel with a man and she's just using domestic violence as a cover up. The girl is bipolar and almost killed her kids in one of her numerous tantrums, why do you think she needs 12 nannies for only 4 kids? Only the staff can testify the hell she put FFK though. Even the police had to come in sometimes to disarm her.

  • Nothing is working under Buhari's clueless and inefficient government, not even family values are safe under this President.

    Under this President, the economy has collapsed. Just recently Nigeria borrowed 5000 metric tonnes of grains from ECOWAS and they have no plans to pay back.

    Under this President, Nigeria is facing the worst security challenges.

    Under this President, his Fulani herdsmen killers have reduced farm products, owing to their disruptive and criminal activities against farmers.

    Under this President, Nigeria is divided along ethnic lines and heading to Golgotha.

    Under this President, family values are eroded, infidelity and marriage crashes here and there.

    Just 4 months ago, there was gunshots at the presidential villa because of altercations between the president's wife and his close relative.

    With this President in power Nigeria has come to a dead end.

    What a Failed President and his dysfunctional family.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

  • One is terribly disappointed in FFK if this story is true. He became my hero lately because of his positions and bold stand against injustice, out-of-constitution model of government run by Buhari for his Fulani kinsmen. This report could not be true!
