Precious Chikwendu, the estranged wife of Femi Fani-Kayode, former aviation minister, says she almost died after she gave birth to their triplets.


The ex-beauty queen welcomed a set of triplets — Ragnar, Aiden, and Liam — with Fani-Kayode on May 25, 2018.

The marriage — which produced four children — however hit the rock in 2020 over allegations bordering on domestic violence and infidelity.

The pair have since been in a heated tussle for the custody of their children.


In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Chikwendu said she was “almost dusted off the earth” by several incidents which trailed the birth of the triplets.

The entrepreneur said five months after giving birth to her kids, she had to undergo thyroidectomy — the surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland.

She also alleged that she was beaten, stripped naked before police officers, sedated and dumped at mental home where she was injected with several substances six months after birthing the triplets.


“God! I can never be ungrateful to you regardless. Who am i that you are so mindful of me? You amaze me Lord. I’ve spent four days digging into my medical report from 2015 to the last surgery in 2020,” she wrote.

“I can’t stop crying. I was almost dusted off the earth. God what did I do to deserve your excessive preservation? Some life damming situations that arose few days after I birthed these amazing soldiers and a line up of several others up-to month 8 postpartum, or was it the thyroidectomy at month 5 or being beaten, stripped naked before staff/police and sedated before being dumped at a mental home where I was injected with all sorts at month 6 of delivery?”

Chikwendu thanked God for keeping her alive despite the ordeal, adding that she is determined to continue pushing to secure custody of her children.

“I was barely alive yet I lived like nothing was wrong even with the constant abuse in such conditions. There must be something you want to do with me that I still haven’t wrapped my brain around,” she added.


“I am ready for this purpose.
Only if we know half of the battles God fights for us behind the scenes.”
