FFK’s estranged wife, Precious Chikwendu, drags him and IGP to court, demands N800m as damages
Precious Chikwendu, has filed a suit at a Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking the enforcement of her fundamental human rights.
The Former beauty queen and estranged wife of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode is demanding compensation for being harassed by her ex-husband.
According to the court papers filed by her lawyer, Abdul-Aziz Jimoh, Precious listed Fani-Kayode, Inspector-General of Police, his officers and means defendants and is demanding the sum of N800m as damages.
Other respondents listed in the suit include the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force CID, Commissioner of Police, FCT, CSP James Idachaba (OC Legal CID), FCT Command.
In the suit, Precious Chikwendu said she was demanding the said amount because of the roles the respondents have played in “intimidating and harassing” her during the pendency of her custody suit.
The mum of four asked the court to restrain the IGP, his officers and men from intimidating and harassing her in any form, pending the hearing and determination of her suit seeking the custody of the four children she had with Fani-Kayode.
As part of her demands in the court papers, Precious asked the court to grant an order enforcing her fundamental human rights as she was apprehensive of an imminent violation of such rights in the actualization of alleged threats to her life by Fani-Kayode and in the face of the nonchalant and refusal of the first, second and third respondents (IGP, DIG Force CID and CP FCT) to investigate her genuine petitions of threat to life against the fifth respondent (Fani-Kayode).
She sought for a declaration that she was not bound to honor the invitation of the first to fourth respondents in relation to a purported conspiracy and forgery of court records during the pendency of suit no CV/372/2021 between her and the fifth respondent.
Chikwendu said she had also petitioned the Commissioner of Police, FCT, the third respondent, alleging threats to her life by the fifth respondent and that the Police Commissioner had refused to act on her petition, thus prompting her to go to court to enforce her fundamental human rights.
No date has been fixed for mentioning of the matter.
