Africa’s table tennis star, Funke Oshonaike, has recounted her ordeal in the hands of two abusive partners.
In a post shared on her Facebook page, Funke alleged that she was a victim of domestic violence in two relationships, one from a lover while she was in the US and the other was allegedly her ex-husband who she stayed with for 10 years before walking out of the marriage.
Funke shared her story while reacting to the news of the death of gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu.
”Do you like this face??!!
Do you like what you’re seeing ?!!
Yes, that’s Funke Oshonaike OLY
I didn’t sleep well at all because of what I’ve been reading about Osinachi, the gospel musician that was physically abused by her husband until she lost her life!! I can’t even believe that some of you could have the guts to still be talking bad about her even In Her grave, especially you Nigerian women!!
Have you been physically abused before? If you’ve not been then you don’t have any idea of what physically abused women are going through, so you have no moral right to abuse them or talk about them anyhow. What they need from you is your words of encouragement, your help and your prayers
I’ve been physically, emotionally and mentally abused by two different men and I know how it fell .
The first one was at a younger age. He didn’t only abused me , but carted away with all my money and my properties, I mean all that I worked for as a young girl. He dealt with me! I was his mugun, it was like I was charmed because all that I had was on his name !! I had to run away from him with the advice of some wonderful people around me and the advice the police gave to me. I had to start my life back when I came back from Atlanta 96. He was still waiting for me to come give him all I earned! But God delivered me from his wicked hands . Oh How much I suffered !! I was living in bondage ! I was his slave.
The second was was with my ex husband. A good and a kind man, but not a good husband to me . His own problem was his background . That’s what he saw growing up, so he didn’t know any other way to deal with an argument than to raise his hands.
My parents , friends , loved ones , pastor , church couldn’t help me. They all told me he will change, or I should change from my ways, I should pray and fast for him, I should be patient etc but not to leave .
Do you know that he even beat me in front of my daddy and even in front of my pastor ??!! Hmm!
This picture was taken the last time he laid his filthy hands on me , I took a knife to kill kill him, but I had to quickly dropped the knife , took a picture of me and ran to the police . That was the last time he touched me because he was warned by the police that if he ever touched me again, he will be seriously punished and he won’t come near me and my kids again .
I guess you super women on SM will ask me why i didn’t flee on time . I couldn’t because I wanted my marriage to work ! I couldn’t because of his good other side, I couldn’t because of people around me, i couldn’t because I was helpless, I couldn’t because of you all out there , I just couldn’t because I was not only physically abused, but also mentally , and emotionally abused. I was totally lost . I was not a super woman like you!!
So my beautiful women out there that’s going through an abusive relationship or marriage , please I understand what you are going through. I know how hard it’s for you. Pls be strong right now and FLEE. Love yourself enough to know that you’re stronger, you will be fine . No man has the right to lay his filthy hands on you. Please I beg you, go away from him NOW! Let him go and sort himself out by going for a therapy or deliverance .
I was lucky to have survived 2 different abusive relationships, you might not! I had patience for more than 10 yrs with my ex but he never changed. I guess I should be blamed for that because I encouraged that for a long time. I was afraid of how to start my life all over again with my 2 kids. It was very hard for me from the beginning with all the expenses but I am happier today because I left.
This is just a tip of the iceberg with what I went through with my abusive relationships. More will sure come out by God grace in my autobiography coming soon by God grace .
My heart goes to all the women Going through physical abusive relationships . PLEASE LEAVE NOW! You deserve better
May Osinachi beautiful soul Rest In Peace
Grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to tell my story. I have no regret and still proud of me
Please SHARE this post. It might help someone”
Court dissolves marriage over doubtful paternity
An Igando Customary Court in Lagos State has ordered the dissolution of the marriage between Mr. Jose Salami and Mrs. Sola Jaiyeola, on grounds of the doubtful paternity of their only child.
Vanguard reports that in a petition filed before the court, Salami, a resident of Number 9, Bakare St., Igando, Lagos State, said he doubted the paternity of the only child produced by the union.
“In March 2013, she said she was a month pregnant for me; so, I arranged for a traditional marriage to be done. But to my surprise, my wife put to bed in July of that same year, and when I asked how possible it was, she waived it aside.
In his judgment, the President of the court, Adeniyi Koledoye, said that it appeared the love between the couple had since perished. He noted that the respondent did not show up in court in spite of several summons.
“There is no doubt that the respondent was in another relationship from which she was pregnant, and perhaps the pregnancy was rejected and she decided to hang it on the petitioner. However, the petitioner ought to have opted out of the marriage immediately he discovered that the paternity of the child was doubtful. It is clear the petitioner was deceived into the marriage by the respondent,” the judge held
Koledoye, therefore, dissolved the marriage and ordered the respondent to pay N200,000 to the petitioner.
