I have to quit my marriage before my husband turns me to a corpse, says Nigerian actress
A Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke, has declared that she has ended her marriage with her filmmaker husband, Austin Faani before he beat her to death, stressing that it was better for her to leave the relationship before she ended as a corpse
Penpushing reports that, the 34-year-old actress made this known in a post on her official Instagram page on Monday, explaining that her husband is notorious on physical abuse, adding that she had been enduring and living a lie in her marriage for years.
The actress who apologized for deceiving the public over her plight in the nine year old marriage, added that she doesn’t want to die or go missing, and disclosed that she has released pieces of evidence to her lawyers and the police in case things go awry.
‘Many have died pretending all is well whilst wishing, hoping and praying for a better tomorrow. I don’t want to die or go inexplicably missing. I sincerely and publicly apologise for living a lie these past years. True to random speculations, there has been trouble in my perceived paradise”, she wrote
‘For the 2nd time in 2 years, I am here on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage. My long overdue/relentless stance on this is no news to Austin Faani, the doctors and my parents’, she emphasised.
‘Suppose push comes to shove & suddenly I am incommunicado. In that case, my lawyers, the welfare department and the Nigerian police force have my testimonials in recorded video clips/statements set for public release on all social media apps and national newspapers”, Eke added
Penpushing further reports that the couple got married in June 2013 in Asaba, Delta State, and recently produced, a film titled, ‘Wanted’ which was exclusively released on June 10 on YouTube.
The actress in the post titled,’ Leave now alive or leave as a corpse’, had earlier lied to the public that, her husband has never laid his hand on her, nor his voice, adding that God was her witness on the claim
‘‘Five days ago, I made a video saying that my marriage to Austin Faani is over and that video came with a lot of backlash from people, with many insinuating that it’s a clear case of domestic violence. It’s not. Austin has never laid his hands on me. Austin has never even raised his voice at me; God in heaven knows that’s the truth’,she explained.
“I’m here at First Delta American hospital, Asaba, receiving treatment. Several psychiatrists have come to assess me mentally, and I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Bipolar is real. Here in Africa, we tend not to know about it due to ignorance or overlook it. I cannot tell you all how I’ve been feeling in these little videos that I’ve been making, but I will, however, show you motion pictures soon”.
