The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the last Edo guber election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has restated his focus on the appeal filed in court to defend the legitimacy of his candidacy in the election, while also dismissing reports linking him to the NDDC Chairmanship.

In a brief statement released by his media team on Friday, Pastor Ize-Iyamu maintained that the Edo State Chapter of the APC is united and in sync with the national leadership of the party in its efforts to grow membership and strengthen the party’s bond with Nigerians across the country.

Crossdressers Are Responsible For High Rate Of Divorce In Nigeria And Not Kanyamata, – Kanyamata Seller, Jaruma Disclosed In (+Video)



Spread the love


Popular businesswoman and Kayanmata seller, Jaruma has reacted to reports which claim that Kanyamata is the reason for most divorce in the country.

According to Jarama, Kanyamata is meant to save not break the home as she blames the high divorce rate on cross-dressers.

“Kayanmata” which originated from the Northern part of Nigeria, refers to herbs or potions that act as sex or love enhancers for couples. The products have been trending on social media as the merchants openly advertise them and also post their clients’ “testimonies” on the efficacy.

In a video she shared on IG, Jaruma reacted to claims that single ladies who use Kayanmata are responsible for the high rate of divorce.

”News was all over town that the high rate of divorce has been linked and traced to Kaynmata because single girls are now buying Kayanmata and now taking away married men from their wives.

There is only one Kayanmata, the original from the North. Have you ever heard me say we are taking your husband away from you?  Have you ever heard me say we are coming to take your husbands away?

Original Hausa Kayanmata from the North, we are homemakers. We are not home breakers.

The high rate of divorce you are talking about can only be linked to crossdressers because crossdressers are the only ones who always say we are coming to take your husbands away.

Every single crossdresser in Nigeria, that is their motto.”

Controversial former Minister of aviation, Femi Fani Kayode has been dragged to the mud by his erstwhile wife Precious Chikwendu at the FCT High Court, Abuja seeking an order to compel Fani-Kayode to give her a monthly payment of N3.5 million for the upkeep of their four sons.

Precious Chikwendu, a former beauty queen and ex-wife of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has accused him of beating her up on several occasions even while she was pregnant

Chikwendu made the allegations in an affidavit she deposed to in support of an originating motion brought pursuant to Section 69 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003 at the FCT High Court, Abuja.

In the court papers, the mother of four boys said she met Fani-Kayode in 2014 at the peak of her career and fell in love with him.

“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 I was pregnant with our first son.

The respondent (Fani-Kayode) kicked me several times 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. The respondent (Fani-Kayode) repeated the same act when I was pregnant with triplets, this time it was my mother and sister, Faith, that intervened”she stated

The former beauty queen alleged that on one occasion, the former Minister connived with a former Divisional Police Officer of the Asokoro Police Station to drug her.

She, however, said things soon turned sour between them as Fani-Kayode began exhibiting signs of paranoia. She alleged that the former minister accused her of infidelity and on several occasions locked her out of their home located on Aso Drive, Asokoro, Abuja.

“Sometime in 2018, in one of my attempts to leave the house with the children, the respondent (Fani-Kayode) in the company of the DPO of Asokoro Police Division, and her team of policemen handcuffed me and stripped me naked while someone from the crowd whom I initially mistook for a policeman forcefully injected me with a sedation.

That I was then abducted and incarcerated at a hospital for a period of two weeks. I was separated from my six-month-old triplets and a-year-old son at the time.” she said

Chikwendu, who alleged that the ex-minister had denied her access to her children for several months, asked the court to compel Fani-Kayode to give her a monthly payment of N3.5 million for the upkeep of their four sons.

She said the Former Minister currently spends N1.8 million on food, toiletries and others on the four children every month while N575,000 is spent monthly on clothing. She said Fani-Kayode had continued to deny her access to the children in order to compel her to return to the marriage.

Chikwendu seeks an order of the court “granting her custody of the four children to the applicant but with reasonable right of access to the respondent”.

FFK in a response filed by his counsel, Oluwafemi Popoola, said he had not been properly served with the court processes and hence, he could not respond appropriately.
