According to a report by SaharaReporters, Anthonia Uchenna, a former domestic worker at the house of former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said the latter once beat up his mother-in-law.
Uchenna, who was a nanny at the former minister’s house said he beat up his in-law after she queried him for beating and stripping his wife naked.
She said whenever he is furious, he beats up domestic workers, including her (Uchenna), strips them naked and sends them out of his house. According to her, the two years of service at Fani-Kayode’s house was filled with torture, threats and maltreatment which explains why she resigned from her appointment as a nanny.
She said, “My name is Anthonia Uchenna, a former nanny at Femi Fani-Kayode’s house. I started working with him in 2017 through 2019. I experienced many things at FFK’s house, the way he handles his staff. Let me use myself as an example. Mine started the day the man paid salary in 2019 August, he paid me my salary and later sent someone to call me down to the kitchen. “I came to the kitchen and then he asked me why the kitchen is in disarray, I told him he had not employed me as a kitchen worker or chef but as a nanny. I told him I had no job in the kitchen. He then asked me to return the money I signed as my salary, I gave it to him. “He seized it and I said this is not the first, second or third time, why does he do this every time? He said if I talk, he will throw me to the dog, they’ll beat me up and everything so I got angry, went back upstairs to pack my bags that I don’t want to work again but I want to leave. “He called bodyguards: Bako, Moses and others, that they shouldn’t allow me to go outside the gate. When those ones said I shouldn’t go outside the gate, I explained to them that I work and at the end of the month, after having signed salary, he will collect it back.
“While I was discussing with the bodyguards, he told those ones to hold me down and not allow me to leave, he (FFK) came downstairs, tore my clothes, stripped me naked and pushed me outside the gate, I was there for 24 hours naked.
