Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode who recently found love again has labeled controversial Nigerian journalist, Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo, the best in the field of journalism.
Fani-Kayode who is currently in court with his immediate estranged wife and mother of his 4 sons, Precious Chikwendu over their children’s custody, showered praises on Kemi for honoring the birthday of his sons on May 25.
Sharing a video of himself and Kemi hugging and exchanging pleasantries, FFK wrote, “It was an honor and a pleasure to receive my sister and friend Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo and her son KJ in my Abuja home on May 25th for the birthday celebration of my sons Ragnar, Aiden and Liam. We had not seen each other in 38 years and it was a wonderful reunion.
Kemi is one of the most courageous, incisive and cerebal investigative journalists in Nigeria and she has become a household name in our country. She seeks the truth and speaks it boldly and she has no fear of anything or anyone.”
The politician added, “Not many people could have endured what this extraordinary lady has suffered and endured over the years all because she has spoken truth to power and against evil in a society that thrives on lies, deceit, slander, gossip, false accusations, injustice, the worship of money and the deification of the rich.
How I wish we had more journalists with Kemi’s integrity, courage and strength in our country. If we did Nigeria would be a better place. Simply put she is formidable and utterly irrepressible.
I am proud to be considered worthy of being her friend. Thanks for coming sister. The Fani-Kayode love you and we always will. Shalom.”
Kemi Filani would recall that FFK’s immediate estranged wife, Ms Chikwendu claimed that their union was a violent one and that the ex-minister physically abused her while they were married.
She also accused him of beating her up on several occasions including when she was pregnant.
The ex-beauty queen, who is demanding custody of their four sons, made the allegations in an affidavit she deposed in support of an originating motion brought pursuant to Section 69 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003.
Ms Chikwendu, who alleged that the ex-minister denied her access to her children for several months, asked the court to compel Fani-Kayode to give her a monthly payment of N3.5m for the upkeep of the four sons.
The news of their separation was made public in September 2020.
