However, the husband is said to be denying responsibility. The former minister, in a text message to members of his family and friends to him and his wife, said he was "reliably informed that the children Precious is carrying are not mine".
"I urge you to please cut off from her and not to help her in any way. She has told the world that you intend to help her with money and I urge you to be very wary of doing so. No friend of hers can remain mine. I urge you to be very careful of this mad, ungrateful, deceitful and treacherous woman," he warned friends.
Sources close to the distressed marriage told SaharaReporters that Mr. Fani-Kayode started physically abusing Precious from the first year of the marriage, a fate that befell her three predecessors. The violence, this website was told, increased as the years went by. He was said to have ordered her to abort the pregnancy that resulted in their son. Precious ignored him but got savage beating, including on her belly, for the recalcitrance. It has grown worse with the allegation of infidelity. A source said when Mr. Fani-Kayode came up with the allegation of infidelity, he hit the woman very violently in presence of their househelp, who he threatened with a gun by sticking the weapon in her mouth to warn her against squealing.
He also instructed his bodyguard to hit Precious, who has since left their home and now sleeps at her boutique at Abacha Estate, Wuse Zone 4, Abuja. She is also said to have been relieved of the Mercedes Benz G-Wagon bought for her by Mr. Fani-Kayode from the copious sums of money made during his time as spokesperson of former President Goodluck Jonathan's campaign organization.
Precious, according to a source, is back to driving 2009 Honda car and has had her police escort withdrawn by the husband. Controversial preacher, Mr. TB Joshua, is said to have waded in and invited Precious to Lagos, buying her flight tickets.
But all the horrors Precious has been subjected to are masked by the husband's extravagant show of confected affection on Facebook. On his Facebook page on Wednesday, Mr. Fani-Kayode posted a picture of himself and Precious accompanied with a post claiming that the tainted Apostle Suleiman exposed a plot assassinate "my beautiful wife, Precious Chikwendu, in 2018. The post, fizzing with the doctrinal lingo, described Precious as "the daughter of Zion", "hidden in Christ" and " covered by the blood of Jesus".
This conveys the impression that things are smooth with them, a tactic he used in the case of Regina, his immediate former wife and mother of the last of his five daughters, Remi. Regina, a Ghanaian, said sources was a victim of serious abuse and had to put up with Mr. Fani-Kayode's relentless womanizing. But even on her last birthday, he was effusive on Facebook.
His first wife, Saratu Attah, whom he married when he was 22, was also regularly pummeled. Sources said the woman, daughter of the late Mr. Adamu Attah, was viciously beaten for requesting a swimming pool in their home on Marine Road in Apapa, Lagos. When his father, the late Chief Remi Fani-Kayode, the beating intensified. Divorce later followed.
The next marriage was to Yemisi Odesanya, daughter of a judge. She is now known as Yemisi Wada after remarrying. In newspaper interviews, the woman told stories of Mr. Fani-Kayode's viciousness and lack of care for their daughters, the reason for which he was excluded from the marriage of one of them, Temitope, in 2014. Despite the disconnect between him and the children, he never fails to advertise his "love" for them on Facebook on their birthdays.
