Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode has claimed he caught his estranged wife Precious Chikwendu in bed with another man.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain made the claim in a series of tweets on Saturday in reaction to a video showing him allegedly abusing the woman.
Claiming his wife recorded the clip as propaganda against him, the troubled politician said: “There was NO physical abuse.
“I simply took the phone from her to stop her from recording me after catching her in bed with a married man days earlier.”
There were reports that there have been multiple claims in the media that Fani-Kayode physically abused the former beauty queen with whom he has four sons.
But the man who confesses to having a “short fuse” said in the tweets that “I repeat there was NO physical abuse whatsoever and she had been insulting and subjecting everybody, including family members, staff and children, to PHYSICAL and VERBAL abuse the whole day. As usual, it was a nightmare!
“My words in the video are self-explanatory. I urge those that watched it to listen to those words carefully. I told her that everyone wanted peace except for her and all she did was indulge in scandal after scandal. I have NEVER physically abused my estranged wife.”
@SaharaReporters posted a video which supposedly depicts me ABUSING my estranged wife.This is nothing but a propaganda video.There was NO physical abuse.I simply took the phone from her to stop her from recording me after catching her in bed with a married man days earlier..1/3
