 A lady called Ada Uburu has called off her wedding citing domestic violence from her partner of one year, David Okike

According to her, they were secondary school mates and after he paid her bride price, he started maltreating her.

He beats her at the slightest provocation.

She noted an instance when her fiancé almost killed her but for the timely intervention of family and neighbors.

She took to her Facebook page to announce the calling off of the marriage: “I never wanted to bring this here but I have to, I am a 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 who I thought I knew to an extent. On December 28, 2020 he did the 1st and 2nd stage in my family marriage list which 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 which 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 Nkwu) and White Wedding ceremony between me and DAVID OKIKE. (Beating me was not part of the agreement in our Marriage)

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

“For 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 in any slightest provocation, just small misunderstanding without minding what condition I am in.

“I have chosen not to 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 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.

“I AM CALLING OFF THE WEDDING AND TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE (IGBA NGWU) BETWEEN ME AND DAVID OKIKE that supposed to hold on this Saturday 16th, April 2022.

“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 promise that if I didn’t kill him, that he will kill me.

“I am still suffering from 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.”
