Ada Uburu Call Off Wedding To David Okike
In a lengthy post shared on her Facebook page, the lady explained that her fiance has been maltreating her since he paid her bride price, narrating how he attacked her with hammer, cutlass and other harmful objects.
Ada, who expressed disappointment over the behaviours of David, who was her secondary school mate, said she initially tried to put up with him because he always promised to turn a new leaf after assaulting her.
However, after enduring the toxic relationship for over a year hoping he would change, she has now decided to call of their wedding which is supposed to hold in three days time, saying “I will not live my entire life facing domestic violence.”
Ada apologized to her family and loved ones for the inconveniences of cancelling the church and traditional wedding slated to hold in Ebonyi state on April 16, 2022.
Ada’s Facebook post on April 13th, reads: “Hello Guys!!! 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 Ngwu) and white wedding ceremony between me and David Okike off. (Beating me was not part of the agreement).
“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 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 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’s going for a weapon I locked the door behind him which he forcefully opened, both his mother and sisters and some neighbours 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.”
The development comes a few days after the death of a gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, who was alleged to have died as a result of serial domestic violence meted out to her by her now-embattled husband, Peter Nwachukwu.
