Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fan-kayode, has threatened to sue a popular blogger, Stella Dimokorkus, over false reports that he (Fani-kayode) has separated with his wife, Precious Chikwendu over domestic violence and that the triplet sons may not have been fathered by him as they were conceived through IVF and Chikwendu had demanded a DNA test.
Reacting in a letter Mr. Adeola Adedipe, Fani-kayode’s lawyer, denied the allegations and demanded N2bn for denting his image.
The letter reads thus:
The letter titled, ‘Defamation of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode- Re: Femi Fani-Kayode and Precious Chikwendu Part Ways Over Alleged Domestic Violence’, stated that the allegations were spurious and maliciously engineered.
“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.”
FFK and his wife allegedly separated over disagreements on unapproved outings
A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and his ex-beauty queen wife, Precious Chikwendu, have separated.
The couple, who are parents to four sons, including a set of two-year-old triplets, have been married since 2014.
According to a family source, the marriage broke down irretrievably due to a health challenge which Ms Chikwendu has been trying to manage since they became a couple.
The source said the health issue posed a serious challenge and the couple later became estranged.
Alongside other unprintable reasons, the source also claimed that they had countless disagreements over ‘‘unapproved outings.’’
The close family source said, ‘‘Snowwhite was fond of going out without Fani-Kayode’s permission and he could no longer tolerate it’.’
