Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has denied a report on alleged estrangement with his wife, Precious Chikwendu, describing the reports as fabricated and hence fake.
Fani-kayode who said his marriage to Chikwendu remains intact stressed that it was wrong for the online medium to portray him as irresponsible and vicious wife-beater, while also portraying his wife as someone who has questionable morals to the extent of raising issues over paternity of their children.
Saharareporters had published a report earier, claiming that the 3 years old marriage between Fani-Kayode and Chikwendu has hit the rock on account of alleged infidelity by the ex-beauty queen and which had resulted in a pregnancy which it stressed the former Minister is distancing himself from.
In a swift reaction, Fani-Kayode in a statement signed on his behalf by his media aide, Jude Ndukwe said there was no iota of truth in the report by Saharareporters which he accused of deliberate plot to tarnish his image and willfully attack his marriage.
The statement read in part;
“We wish to put it on record that there is absolutely no an iota of truth in any part of that story and it is nothing but fake news.
As a matter of fact it is a total fabrication put together by a desperate and vicious media house that seeks to destroy the lives of every member of the Fani-Kayode family.
Saharareporters has a history of creating fanciful and destructive stories about Chief Fani-Kayode’s private life and this is nothing new. They have been doing it for the last 12 years and their hatred for Chief Fani-Kayode knows no end.
To write absurd and irresponsible stories in an attempt to portray Chief Fani-Kayode as an irresponsible and vicious wife-beater, to portray his wife as someone who has questionable morals and to go as far as to suggest the paternity of their children was ever questioned is utterly shameless.
We would like to remind the publishers and editors of saharareportres that they have wives, children and husbands too and it is simply ungodly to try to destroy someone elses family and reputation with such lies.
The Fani-Kayode’s have instructed their lawyers to take up the matter and we urge the Nigerian public to ignore their baseless and desperate fabrications and treat them with the contempt that they deserve”.
