“I never wanted to bring this here but I have to, I am the type of person who likes to keep my relationship away from social media but this is for clarification purposes.

“This was my secondary school classmate whom I thought I knew to an extent. On December 28, 2020, he did the 1st and 2nd stages in my family marriage list. The bride price happened to be on the 2nd stage which he paid. After he paid my bride price he started maltreating me.

“2021 was hell for me that at some point I left home, after everything we settled around November 2021 when he promised he will never beat me again. But still, nothing CHANGED.
This is my reason why I am CALLING OFF the Traditional Marriage (Igba Ngwu) and White Wedding ceremony between me and DAVID OKIKE OFF. (Beating me was not part of the agreement in our Marriage).

“This Saturday should have been my traditional and white wedding ceremony day… I am supposed to be happy but I am not.

“For a couple of months now I have been going through a lot.

“I have been in a TOXIC RELATIONSHIP for OVER a YEAR now.. I am aware that this may be a shock to many people, especially people from my Home Town. My supposed husband HIT and ABUSE me at any slightest provocation, just small misunderstandings 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 times he had lifted his hammer on me, and this Monday last week just because of a little misunderstanding he beat me mercilessly, and in the process of it, he rushed into his mother’s kitchen for a cutlass.

“When I noticed he was going for a weapon I locked the door behind him which he forcefully opened. 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.

“I am calling off the wedding.


“Please to my family and friends I am so sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you 🙏🏿

“But I will not end up with a man who always promises that if I didn’t kill him, he will kill me.

“I am still suffering from the unstoppable headache I sustained from the head injury he gave me 3 weeks ago.

“The ‘bride price paid’ will be returned in due time.

“Please respect my choices. Thanks and God bless you all.”
