The estranged wife of the former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), Precious Chikwendu, has been restrained by an FCT Family Court sitting at the Magistrate District, Wuse Zone II, Abuja, from making any further comment about their children or the failed marriage.

According to the court, her comments could lead to the identification of their children, whose custody issues have been submitted before it for determination.

Justice Njideka Duru gave the order following a motion ex-parte moved by FFK’s counsel, Adeola Adedipe, to the effect.

Adedipe, in the motion ex-parte marked: MN/05/2022 filed on February 14, on behalf of Fani-Kayode, appealed to the court for four orders, which include “an order granting leave to the applicant, to amend the originating process filed in this case.

He sought for an order of substituted service on the respondent of the amended originating motion, motion on notice for interlocutory injunction and hearing notice.

The lawyer wants an order setting down for hearing in camera, the conduct of any or all proceedings in this case, in the best interest of the children involved; to preserve their respective rights to dignity and privacy.

He also asked for an order of interim injunction stopping Chikwendu or associates from making presentations at any public gathering or social media platform of the broken relationship.

In her ruling, the judge granted the order of interim injunction restraining Chikwendu “from publishing the names, address, school, photographs or making any comment, presenting any speech or paper whether at a public gathering or during a program described as ‘Green Shift’ (Apostolic Roundtables) slated for Feb. 24.”

She also granted the order restraining Precious from commenting on any social media platform, of any information likely to lead to the identification of any of the children whose custody issues have been submitted to this court for determination, pending the determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.

The case was adjourned until March 24 for further hearing.
