A Nigerian lady has decided to cancel her traditional marriage ceremony and white wedding ceremony which were slated for Saturday, April 16, 2022.
According to the lady identified on her marriage invitation card as Helene Azioma Michael, per her tradition, the first two stages of the ceremony were conducted by his fiance, identified as David Okike.
Right after the second stage which was the payment of her bride price on December 28, 2020, “he started maltreating me”.
“2021 was hell for me that at some point I left home, after everything we settled around November 2021 which he promised he will never beat me again. But still, nothing CHANGED”, she recounted.
She has decided to call off the event because according to her, physical abuse was not part of her agreement with the man she began dating way back in High School.
“My supposed husband HIT and ABUSE me in any slightest provocation, just a small misunderstanding without minding what condition I am into. Because I have chosen ME and I will not live my entire life facing DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. My supposed husband is full of RAGE, BEATING me with his Belt, Stick, Broom is his DAILY ROUTINE, Many a times he had lifted his hammer on me, and this Monday last week just because of a little misunderstanding he beat me mercilessly and on the process of it he rushed into his mother’s kitchen for a cutlass, when I noticed he’s going for a weapon I locked the door behind him which he forcefully opened, both his mother and Sisters and some neighbors were begging him not to cut me with the cutlass … With all these things and more I am fed up”, she recounted, according to private Facebook page, Tell It All.
She chose to describe her relationship as a toxin.
Her revelation comes barely a week after a Nigerian gospel musician, Osinachi Nwachukwu reportedly died from domestic violence at the hand of her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.
