In the 13-count charge filed on January 7, they were accused of committing offenses bordering on cybercrime, intimidation to kill FFK by use of internet, threat to kill one Lauretta in a bid for her  to quit her relationship with the politician.

They were also accused of fabricating false evidence to frame FFK for physically and sexually assaulting members of his domestic staff, by causing the claims to be electronically published in a national daily.

Also, Precious, a mum of four, was accused of using her Facebook page on December 7, 2021 to refer to Fani-Kayode as “Mr Short Fuse”. She was also alleged to have falsely accused him of being “sexually incapacitated and that he is not the biological father of the four children she had for him as a wife.”
