Two weeks ago I was at a shop with a friend to purchase something.
While bargaining, the shop owner suddenly said to me “Please sir help! Ke eya wod ayin ako.” (they’ll kill that pikin)
I asked where? And she pointed to the shop opposite hers. The glass door has been closed but you could see people struggling at a critical look.
I crossed over. Forced the door open and behold a helpless girl being given heavy wrestlemania punches by a hefty man. Her girlfriend was holding him and murmuring don’t beat her again.
When he sighted us, he gradually stopped hitting her but vexatiously saying I’ll kill you. You can’t work here again.
I calmed him down and he began narrating how he picked the girl from the road, visited her people and spent about 100k blablabla.
How the girl had lived with him for 5 years but recently started misbehaving. The core reason for this particular beating was that, the girl followed her madam to a birthday party of a certain Honorable against his wish and to worsen it, She slept over!
While He was talking I noticed the girl on the floor was almost passing out. Her neck was mikking nte unen emaeke kpikke itong.
I asked for chill water to be poured on her. Thank God that helped.
She accepted being at fault. She is an orphan as well and yes she took him to see her relatives five years ago.
But added she is tired of being with the guy. She wants to quit.
That she has been receiving similar beatings for five years. Hmmmm sister Endurance!
I rebuked the guy for laying hands on her. I was so bitter. Seeing the girl was determined to move on and the guy vowing to kill her if she quits, I took her to the police to report the threat so the guy can be invited to sign an undertaking. (this was after the guy left)
She went, parked her things to her girlfriend’s place and was so serious.
To my greatest surprise when I saw her two days ago, she said sir I went back to him. He came pleading and has promised never to beat me again. I smiled and told her congratulations!
I’m putting up this post because an hour ago she called asking for help that the guy has beaten her again.
Someone else may be going through this. Listen!!! Stop cohabitation! It takes away your integrity as a woman.
It makes the man to see you as worthless.
Park your bags and walk out tomorrow.
No matter your condition or background, there’s a Prince out there waiting to make you his Queen.
The wise men made no progress until they left Herods compound.
I had to take down the first picture to protect their identity.
