Former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has dared his estranged wife to head to the courts to prove her allegations of physical abuse.
Fani-Kayode disclosed this on his official Twitter handle on Sunday in reaction to an online viral video which showed the former minister exchanging words with his estranged wife, Precious Chikwendu.
The couple recently fell out with the wife accusing Fani-kayode of physical abuse while the he has rebuffed such claims. He alleged to have caught his alienated wife in bed with a married man.
He said, “I have chosen to take the high horse and I refuse to allow my estranged wife to turn the affairs of my personal life into a public circus. If she has any issues let her use the right medium as a responsible adult and mother and stop secretly feeding the media with damaging scandals geared towards the destruction of our children’s future.
“I have kept quite in order to protect my children. I have covered all her madness over the past 7 years and not once did I expose her. But the facts are there and the witnesses and evidence are readily available for the courts. I broke my silence yesterday only because my hand has been forced.
“Rather than focusing on the problem of brutality and evil plaguing our country, or the myriad of other issues holding citizens hostage, some people would prefer to spread and partake in what amounts to celebrity gossip and chopped videos. Who in Nigeria does this benefit? What is the use?”
According to Fani-Kayode, his personal life should be kept private in the interest of his children and their dignity.
He added, “The ringleader of this media scandal and his/her collaborators may continue polluting news sites and blogs with spam and begging for crumbs of attention with wild tales as long as they wish. Acting is a professional field all on its own but thankfully so is law.
“Any and all videos, testimonies, documentation andother evidence coming from my end will only be displayed in court, where this (sic) issues can be resolved once and for all. If this person speaks the truth, they will be happy to meet me there, instead of peddling stories. My next tweets and posts will be focused solely on relevant issues.”
