An allegation has been made against the former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode of shunning an order of the court directing him to grant her access to their four children during the festive period.
The accusation was made by Fani-Kayode’s former wife, Precious Chikwendu.
It would be recalled that Chikwendu and Fani-Kayode, who cohabited for six years, are locked in a legal battle for custody of the four children of their cohabitation.
Specifically, one of such suits is before the Customary Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
Chikwendu, who also held sway as former Nigeria’s beauty queen had revealed that the court on December 8, 2021, directed her and Fani-Kayode to work out an arrangement to allow her access to her kids during the Yuletide.
This made her lawyer, Abiodun Olusanya to write Fani-Kayode through his lawyer, Adeola Adedipe to request access to the four kids on Saturday, December 18; Saturday, December 25, and Saturday, January 8 at Central Park, Abuja from 9 am till 6 pm.
According to her, she went to Central Park, on December 18 from 9 am till 6 pm, but her kids were not brought to her.
The letter dated December 13, 2021, by her lawyer reads in part:
“REQUEST FOR ACCESS TO THE PETITIONER’S FOUR MALE CHILDREN.
The above subject matters refer.
“We remain counsel and solicitors to Precious Chiwendu (the Petitioner in the above-mentioned suit) hereinafter referred to as our client on whose concern and instruction we write you.
“Be reminded that on the 8th day of December 2021 wherein the above suit came up for hearing, Their Honours at the Hearing of both Counsels in open court ordered that the petitioner be granted access to her children during the festive period and that Counsel should agree on the days, times and where the children would be brought for the petitioner to spend time with her children.
“Sequel to the said Order, we have discussed with the Petitioner, though she would have loved to see her children every day, but in fairness we hereby request the children be made available on the following three days, location and time;
1. This Saturday, 18th day of December 2021 at Central Park, Abuja from 9 am till 6 pm, and
2. Saturday 1st day of January 2022; New Year’s Day at same venue and time as above. Kindly note, that should your client reserve any objection to this date, we suggest that the Petitioner be allowed access to her children on Saturday, 25th day of December 2021; Christmas Day as an alternative to the 1st day of January date, and
3. Saturday, 9th January 2022 same venue and time.
“Our choice for the suggested location is borne out of our client’s decision not to visit her children at your client’s residence, due to her traumatic experiences she had at the same venue.
“We believe in total regards to the Order of the Court and paramount interest of the children, that our request would be positively considered and agreed to.”
