Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reportedly separated from his fourth wife, Precious Chikwendu.
There are conflicting reports over what led to Fani-Kayode’s separation from Chikwendu, with whom he has four boys.
The latest development makes it the ex-ministers fourth marriage to have hit the rocks.
Fani-Kayode had left his Instagram followers wondering what might have happened to his marriage after he addressed his first wife, Saratu Atta, as “baby” in a post he shared on the photo-sharing app recently.
The former minister’s separation from his ex-beauty queen wife was confirmed to Premium Times by family members.
The ex-minister was also reported to have written a pre-litigation letter to popular blogger, Stella Dimokorkus, demanding N2bn for reporting that the separation was due to domestic violence.
The pre-litigation letter was written on behalf of Fani-Kayode by his lawyer, Adeola Adedipe, reports Punch.
“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,” the letter partly reads.
