A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has denied physically abusing his estranged wife, saying that a video posted by Sahara Reporters was nothing but a propaganda.
Fani-Kayode was reacting to a video posted on Twitter by Sahara Reporters with the caption, “Ex-Nigerian Minister, @realFFK, Caught On Tape Abusing His Now Estranged Wife, Precious Chikwendu”.
Denying physically abusing his estranged wife, the former minister said, “I simply took the phone from her to stop her from recording me after catching her in bed with a married man days earlier”.
“I repeat there was NO physical abuse whatsoever and she had been insulting and subjecting everybody, including family members, staff and children, to PHYSICAL and VERBAL abuse the whole day. As usual, it was a nightmare!”
“My words in the video are self explanatory. I urge those thet watched it to listen to those words carefully. I told her that everyone wanted peace except for her and all she did was indulge in scandal after scandal. I have NEVER physically abused my estranged wife.”
VANTAGE NEWS had last month reported that Fani-Kayode, and wife, Precious Chikwendu, with whom he had four sons have separated.
Before now, there was no word from the former minister or his estranged wife on the cause of their separation.
