Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister, has refuted a report in online tabloid, SaharaReporters, which said that he is experiences marital strife with wife, Precious Chikwendu.

In an e-mailed statement on Friday, January 5, 2017 to The Trent signed by Jude Ndukwe, a media aide to the former two-time minister, Chief Fani-Kayode said that SaharaReporters had been on a decade-long attack on his personality and made up a story about domestic violence and marital tension just to disparage him.

In a telephone call same morning with The Trent, Fani-Kayode said that “there is no truth in the report, we are here together in Lagos”.

Read the full statement below:


We read with disgust the fake story that was published by saharareporters this morning concerning Chief Femi Fani-Kayode and his wife Precious Chikwendu.

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 thst 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.
