Fani-Kayode’s third wife, Regina-Hanson Amonoo has defended the former Aviation minister amid domestic violence report.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that Femi Fani-Kayode got married to Regina Amonoo in 1997 in Ghana during the regime of General Sani Abacha.
Recall that the ex-minister had made the headlines recently after his marriage to his 4th wife, Precious Chikwendu, hit the rock.
Regina-Hanson Amonoo who is also known as Gina, in a Facebook post, has now dismissed claims in some quarters that she had parted ways with him over issues bordering on domestic violence.
Amonoo claims she has never experienced any form of abuse since she tied the knot with him 23 years ago.
“Chief Femi Fani-Kayode is my husband. We got married under traditional law and custom in Accra, Ghana in 1997 and we got married under the Marriage Act at the Apapa Registry office in Lagos, Nigeria in 2002,” she wrote on Tuesday.
“We have a beautiful daughter called Oluwaremilekun and both she and I are very proud of him. He has been a wonderful father and caring husband and he has never subjected me to any form of domestic abuse or treated me badly.”
She described the former minister as a caring husband, who would go any length just to protect his loved ones.
“Anyone that knows Femi well knows that his greatest weakness are those he loves and he will do anything for them,” she added.
“He is a warm, kind, generous, gentle, intelligent and loving man who is not afraid of anything or anyone and who takes care of his own. From the very beginning of his relationship with Precious he told me about it and I accepted it in good faith.”
Regina also enjoined the public to disregard swelling rumours that she had divorced the former minister, adding that he still remains her husband.
“Reports in the media that we are divorced are fake and suggestions that I was treated in a bad way by him or subjected to any form of abuse at any time in the 23 years that we have been married are malicious and false,” she concluded.
