The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Chikwendu, an ex-beauty queen had, through her social media handle, accused Bent of using the police to intimate her with regards to the feud between her and her former husband.

However, Bent in a statement described the allegation as “very weighty” adding that she was consulting with her legal team and would not hesitate to seek appropriate legal redress.

Bent, who is a close friend and longtime political associate of Fani-Kayode, has debunked the allegations, describing it as a “very weighty” one that carries “assassination tendencies and intendment.”

Grace Bent Sues Precious Chikwendu

It was gathered that the former senator representing Adamawa south had eventually sued the ex-beauty queen, but Chikwendu was absent in court and there was no legal representation on her behalf when the matter was called on Monday.

Mr Joseph Offor who announced his appearance for the prosecution said that he was holding the brief of Mr Victor Okoye who was away in Lagos.

Offor told the court that he had little information about the case and so could not explain why Chikwendu and her legal team were absent in court.

The trial judge, Justice Obiora Egwuatu subsequently adjourned the matter until March 10 for arraignment. (NAN)

This comes a few weeks after Femi Fani-Kayode took to social media to show off his four children after Precious Chikwendu alleged that one of her sons had contracted Coronavirus.
