FFK and Precious Chikwendu
Precious Chikwendu, a former beauty queen, has again cried out about her ordeal in an ongoing custody battle of her children with her ex-husband and Nigeria’s former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.
The mother of four in a video she shared on Instagram alleged that she experienced domestic violence while still with the former minister.
Chikwendu also revealed that while she didn't go public with FFK's alleged erectile dysfunction claim during the six years they were together; she understood that court documents were available to the public after being filed.
Insisting that she had not been drama-bound, the former beauty queen stated that she wouldn't have said anything to the public if her partner wasn't desperate to see her behind bars with alleged false criminal charges he filed against her and her sister.
She also pointed out that she had been silent since August 2, 2020 when she left FFK and only started speaking up after a year because people started taking her silence as "guilt" and also because her kids might ask why she didn't defend herself.
One of the criminal charges, according to her, was allegedly filed by the former minister and BBNaija's Jackie B's mother, Senator Grace Bent, who had reported to the police that Chikwendu planned to assassinate her.
She added that while she knew that children should not be kept away from their father, she insisted that they shouldn't also be kept away from their mother and she wouldn't be alive and see her children "live like orphans".
Chikwendu, who revealed that she only saw her kids in videos parents of their schoolmates made, disclosed that she had appealed to FFK to allow his lawyers sit with hers so they could reach an agreement on "rotation of access" to their kids.
She claimed that the former minister refused this but instead wanted to "exert power over her and drag her back to the cage she escaped from".
On claim of being insane, the former beauty queen said she had taken psychiatric evaluation in Nigeria and abroad and was currently waiting for the former minister to bring that up again.
Admitting mistake of not reading up about the former minister and how some of his romantic affairs played out, Chikwendu stated that she decided to give him a clean slate to prove himself and now regretted it.
Wondering why FFK would deny her access to her kids while his mother was allowed to raise him in spite of the drama with his own father, she also disclosed that other women, who had kids for FFK's father were allowed to raise them even though the former minister wouldn't acknowledge them.
She went on to plead with women, who knew what it felt like to sleep without their kids, to join her in the fight.
The mother of four concluded by saying there should be respect and decorum in any relationship and she hopes her sons will imbibe that.
