Femi Fani-Kayode, the former minister of aviation, and Precious Chikwendu, his estranged wife, have met at his home for the first time in two years.


Chikwendu has been in a legal tussle for the custody of her four children since her marriage to the ex-minister hit the rock in 2020.

The marriage had suffered set back over Chikwendu’s claim of domestic violence and Fani-Kayode’s counterclaim of infidelity.

But there are indications that the pair’s lingering legal battle may have come to an end.


In a Facebook post on Friday, Fani-Kayode shared photos of Chikwendu’s visit to his home, describing it as “truly surreal and historical moment.”

The politician said the ex-beauty queen’s visit was “out of the blue” and came after “two long years of contentious silence and acrimonious separation.”

“For the first time in two years, totally unexpectadly and out of the blue and after she took our sons Aragorn, Ragnar, Aiden and Liam out for yet another beautiful outing, mama Aragorn came to the house to visit with us,” he wrote.


“For two years she and I had not seen or spoken to one another but on Saturday afternoon we spent no less than four hours together in which we talked, laughed and shared some beautiful moments.

“It was touching to see members of my household and staff receive her and, led by our first son Aragorn who held her tightly by the hand, usher her through the gates and into the compound as I watched in utter disbelief and surprise from the balcony.

“There are some moments that words cannot capture or express and this was one of them. After two long years of contentious silence and acrimonious separation she graced us with her presence and came home.”

In the post, the politician also hailed Chikwendu, adding that despite their separation, their bond cannot be broken.


“Mama Aragorn displayed such courage, grace, dignity and class. This was a moment that I shall cherish for many years,” he added.

“This was a triumph for all lovers of peace and sons and daughters of righteousness…this was a moment that proved beyond all reasonable doubt that patience, restraint, understanding and peace brings nothing but joy and blessings.

“This was a moment that light overcame darkness and that the secret prayers of four handsome little Princes were answered. This was a moment when love, mutual respect, truth and mutual forgiveness triumphed and satan was put to shame. Thanks for coming Mama Aragorn. We love and appreciate you.

“Always did, always will. And though we have gone our separate ways the bond and cord that exists between us through our four beautiful boys can never be broken.


“Love conquered all and saw us through and so it shall continue to be.”

The development comes a few days after Chikwendu also hailed the former minister for granting her access to her children.
