Former beauty queen Precious Chikwendu has dragged her estranged husband cum former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode to court seeking the enforcement of her fundamental human rights.
She also listed some top Nigerian police Officials in the lawsuit filed at a Federal High Court in Abuja as she demands a sum of N800m as damages.
She stated that she’s demanding such an amount because of the role the defendant has played in intimidating and harassing her as they’re battling for the custody of their four children.
Precious however asked the court to restrain the police Officials from intimidating and harassing her in any form as they await the hearing and determination of the custody suit.
An affidavit in support of her court application said, “I was in a most tempestuous and violent relationship with the fifth respondent (Fani-Kayode), a qualified legal practitioner, a politician and a former minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The fifth respondent and I have four children together and I am forcefully separated from our children, who are all minors.
Consequent upon the unbridled violence perpetrated against me by the fifth respondent and the forceful separation from our children, I filed a suit in the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, with Suit No CV/372/2021.
Rather than allow the contending matters placed before the FCT High Court to be determined by the honorable court, the fifth respondent has persisted in using the Police officers under the control of the first respondent (IGP) and supervised by the second respondent (Commissioner of Police FCT) incessantly to intimidate and harass me with a view to interfering in the adjudicatory powers of a competent court of justice.”
