Nigerian lawmaker and ex-Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has pleaded with the Federal High Court in Abuja to dismiss the N800million suit his former wife, Ms. Precious Chikwendu brought against him.
The politician’s lawyers argued that Kayode’s Precious Chikwendu who is a former beauty queen deprived his children of breast milk arguing that she wanted to keep feminity and contours in shape.
Fani-Kayode also denied claims by Precious Chikwendu that she was violently separated from the four children they had together.
His argument as read in court, “she elected to leave her matrimonial home and consciously abandon the children, in order to optimize without restraints, her extra-marital and inordinate sexual escapades.
As a fact, it is not surprising that Ms. Precious Chikwendu is capable of such reckless abandonment, because: whilst she was with me in the house afore-described, she employed 12 in-house nannies to cater for the children, excluding supervisors and nurses who equally attend to them; the Applicant did not at any time extend maternal care to the children, for the reason that she had a medical condition which deprived her of any filial bond with them; she deprived the children of the natural sucks or bre*st milk, also on account of the need to preserve her body shape, coupled with a contrived medical condition which she claimed would not permit her to breastfeed them,” the statement read in part.
