Precious Chikwendu, the estranged wife of Femi Fani-Kayode, has started an online petition to demand custody of her children with the former aviation minister.
Fani-Kayode and Chikwendu’s marriage hit the rock in 2020 over her domestic violence claim and his counter-claim of infidelity.
They have been in a heated tussle for the custody of their children — Aragorn, Ragnar, Aiden, and Liam — since the marriage crashed.
In the petition, titled ‘Justice for Snowhite and Sons‘, the ex-beauty asked the United Nations (UN), Amnesty International, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to intervene in the matter.
Other agencies named in the petition include Human Rights Campaign, Child Right Advocacy, Project Alert and Women Advocacy.
According to Chikwendu, the petition was initiated to help bring “her problem before the international community.”
The entrepreneur added that it would also help other African women who share similar experiences with her.
“This petition would help African women who have been denied a right to their children because they were married to or cohabited with a person of power,” it read.
“This petition would put an end to bullying and oppression from political spouses who have the power and means to oppress and frustrate their partners out of the lives of their growing children who need the love and care of both parents.
“Precious is seeking justice and custody of her children. This bill will help her bring her problem before the International community.”
As of the time of this report, 7,400 people have signed the petition, which targets 7,500 signatures.
