The estranged lover of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, Precious Chikwendu has asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to restrain the Inspector General of Police, (IGP) his officers and men from intimidating and harassing her in any form whatsoever pending the hearing and determination of her suit seeking the custody of the four children she had with the former minister.

She is also asking the court to award her the sum of N800 million against the IGP, the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Force CID, Commissioner of Police FCT, CSP James Idachaba, OC Legal (CID) FCT Command and Chief Femi Fani-Kayode cited as the 1st to the 5th respondents in the suit for their roles in intimidating and harassing her during the pendency of her suit.

The applicant is also asking for an order enforcing her fundamental human rights as according to her she is apprehensive of an imminent violation of her fundamental human rights as a result of the refusal of the 1st to the 3rd respondents (IGP, DIG Force CID and CP FCT) to investigate her genuine petitions of threat to life against the 5th respondent (Fani-Kayode).

In an affidavit, in support of the application deposed to by Chikwendu she averred that “ I was in a most tempestuous and violent relationship with the 5th respondent (Fani-Kayode) a qualified legal practitioner, a politician and a former Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The 5th respondent and I have four children together and I am forcefully separated from our children who are all minors.

“Consequent upon the unbridled violence perpetrated against me by the 5th respondent and the forceful separation from our children, I filed a suit in the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja with suit no CV/372/2021.

“Rather than allow the contending matters placed before the FCT High Court to be determined by the Honorable Court, the 5th respondent has persisted in using the police officers under the control of the 1st respondent( IGP) and supervised by the 2nd respondent (Commissioner of Police FCT) incessantly to intimidate and harass me with a view to interfering in the adjudicatory powers of a competent court of justice.”

She said she had also petitioned the Commissioner of Police FCT the 3rd respondent alleging threats to her life by the 5th respondent and that the Commissioner has refused to act on her petition thus prompting her to go to court to enforce her fundamental human rights.
