Chikwendu, who’s demanding full 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. “From the early days of our relationship, the respondent (Fani-Kayode), has always maintained a lifestyle of utter disregard to my feelings. This was evident in the way and manner the respondent assaulted me while pregnant with our first son. The respondent (Fani-Kayode) kicked me severally on my stomach over a petty argument that ensued. It was my friend, Vanessa, who was around at the material time that intervened at the nick of time to save me. I had to leave the respondent’s (Fani-Kayode’s) house a few days after this incident.

IPOB Vows To Stop Anambra Elections



The Indigenous People of Biafra on Sunday July 9 insisted that the November 18 governorship election in Anambra state would not hold.  

IPOB said the group would not allow any election process that would perpetuate slave status and misery among the people of the area.

The group said it would use the Anambra poll to demonstrate to the world that IPOB would not make empty threats. The Anambra state commissioner of Police, Mr Garba Umar had warned that it would deal ruthlessly with any group that would threaten the Anambra poll. 

He said: "The election had been scheduled by an authorised government agency; nobody, including IPOB, has the capacity to stop it. He said the police in the state had the capacity to suppress such threat, warning that those nursing such plot to have a rethink or be ready to face the wrath of the law. 

Umar added: "Anambra Citizens have the right to have periodic elections to elect their leaders; nobody or group of persons can deny them such right. “We are here to provide them the protection to exercise their franchise. Nobody can’t stop them from exercising their constitutional rights. We shall have no option than to suppress such threat. We have the capacity to do so." 




But IPOB in the press state on Sunday maintained that it would truncate the poll. 

“Biafrans cannot be reasonably expected to agree to any electoral process that will only perpetuate their current slave status and misery in this colonial contraption named Nigeria. 

“While we may accept being routinely killed and dispossessed outside our land, such intimidation cannot be allowed to go unchecked in Biafraland. “We are therefore calling on all those who claim to be Igbo leaders especially those on the payroll of Nigerian government to please retrace their steps before it is too late.”
