Popular media personality, Toke Makinwa has urged her fans to opt for separation if marriage appears to be threatening their peace, adding that “nobody is worth throwing the rest of your life in jail or even worse a death sentence for”
Toke Makinwa was reacting to the trending topic of a young lady, Maryam Sanda who murdered her husband a few years ago and was sentenced to death by hanging.
Reacting on her Instagram page, the media personality said those people who say divorce is against our tradition and encourage married folks with marital issues to stay put will only cry when they get killed.
“They say divorce isn’t an option, it’s a sin. They say it’s not our tradition. But, if you die or kill someone in anger, the same people will only cry with you as you throw your life away,” she wrote.
“Try separation first. If things don’t get better, choose you. Life is tough, people are angry, there’s frustration. The only sanity you can guarantee is yours. If someone is threatening your peace please separate from them.
“At least you can both be alive to raise your kids, and maybe one day find a resolve. Stop testing yourself. I know some conversations are tough but they must be had.
“I know some conversations are tough but they must be had, nobody is worth throwing the rest of your life in jail or even worse, a death sentence, anger is evil, choose your mental health and walk away always. It’s hard, it’s tough but one minute of anger can take away everything.”
Meanwhile, Katsina State Police Command has arrested a 19-year-old housewife, Rabi Usman Shamsudeen, for allegedly stabbing her husband to death during heated argument.
