Nigeria Table Tennis Queen, Funke Oshonaike, on Wednesday, shared her experience in her previous relationships.
The 46-year-old alleged that she was a victim of domestic violence.
Oshonaike noted that said she was frustrated to a point that she wanted to kill one of her abusers.
Oshonaike promised to reveal more about the abuses she suffered in the name of love, in an upcoming autobiography.
As news of Osinachi Nwachukwu’s death filtered in last Friday, friends, Christian faithful and other Nigerians on social media have pondered on why she chose to remain in the marriage despite constant attacks from her husband, Peter.
“I didn’t sleep well at all because of what I’ve been reading about Osinachi, the gospel musician that was physically abused by her husband until she lost her life,” the tennis star wrote on Facebook.
“I’ve been physically, emotionally and mentally abused by two different men and I know how it felt.
“The first one was at a younger age. He didn’t only abuse me, but carted away with all my money and my properties, I mean all that I worked for as a young girl.
“The second was with my ex husband. A good and a kind man, but not a good husband to me. His own problem was his background. That’s what he saw growing up, so he didn’t know any other way to deal with an argument than to raise his hands.
“My parents, friends, loved ones, pastor, church couldn’t help me. They all told me he will change, or I should change from my ways, I should pray and fast for him, I should be patient etc but not to leave.
“Do you know that he even beat me in front of my daddy and even in front of my pastor ??!! Hmm!”
