News - by RadioNowIT / Feb. 15th, 2022

The police have arraigned Precious Chikwendu, on a charge of attempted murder of her former husband, Femi Fani-Kayode.

She was arraigned on Monday before Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja.

The case filed by the Commissioner of Police against Ms. Chikwendu and three others accused her of attempting to stab Mr. Fani-Kayode with a kitchen knife on November 24, 2018, at Asokoro, Abuja.

Others arraigned alongside Ms Chikwendu include Emmanuel Anakan, Prisca Chikwendu and Osakwe Azubuike as 1st, 3rd and 4th defendants respectively, while others are said to be at large.

In the 13-count charge dated and filed on January 7, the defendants were also alleged to have committed offences bordering on cybercrime, intimidation to kill Mr Fani-Kayode by use of Internet, threat to kill one Lauretta in order to cause her to leave her relationship with Mr Fani-Kayode.

They were alleged to have criminally used the internet to send abusive messages with intent to bully, defame and harass the former minister.

The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to all the counts, which are said to be punishable under Section 392 of the Penal Code, among others.

Ms Chikwendu’s lawyer, Alex Ejesieme, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, urged the court to grant the defendants bail based on the earlier administrative bail granted them by the police.
