Fire For Fire in Alleged Domestic Violence: You lied, your beatings led to two miscarriages – Ada Uburu4 min read
Helen Ozioma, the lady who called off her wedding to David Okike, has denied aborting three pregnancies belonging to him.
Ozioma also known as Ada Uburu accused Okike of domestic abuse, leading her to call off the wedding, which should have taken place today in Abakalili, capital of Ebonyi State.
But Okike debunked the allegations and accused her of deliberately aborting their pregnancies.
He also accused her of shifting their wedding many times before calling it off last week.
But Ozioma, in a reaction on Saturday, said she didn’t abort the pregnancies.
Rather, she alleged she suffered two miscarriages because of physical assault.
Displaying a medical report of the last miscarriage, she said the doctors had to carry out an emergency operation to evacuate the dead foetus from her womb.
She said: “Even when I took in, I will tell him to give me even if it’s a little space like a month before sex so that I won’t miscarry but he won’t. Rather he will drag with me and end up beating me.
“He practically caused all the miscarriages I went through by his beating and not even having a common self control.
“It was never an abortion, it was two miscarriages and I have my evidence.
“Please look into the scan result below From Alex Ekwueme Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki.
“That was the pregnancy that I miscarried last year due to his violence and rage which he said Teaching Hospital Abakaliki aborted his baby without his consent.
“If the Hospital have CCTV, it will be recorded right there because it was his eldest sister Juliana Okike who accompanied me to the hospital,” she claimed.
She added: “Why did she accompany me and not my supposed husband? He kept giving excuses, babe wait next week, next week that never finishes.
“Women who had witnessed miscarriages will tell you how painful and heartbroken it is to know that you are carrying nothing and you’re still carrying it.
“My good people in my own case my supposed husband kept delaying everything. I kept begging him that even if he doesn’t want to go with me to the hospital that his eldest sister Juliana Okike is a health worker, he should send her with me, after everything he accepted.
“It was a miscarriage and only God knows what I went through.”
Ozioma further noted despite the alleged abuse by her fiancee, she was ready to go ahead with the wedding but the death of popular singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, made her have a rethink and call off the marriage.
“I wasn’t strong enough to call off the wedding at first. My intention was ‘I am already in this mess. if eventually we got married and everything keep being bad if God wishes we will go our separate ways.’
“That was why at some point I started fighting for “Court marriage” which with both the help of our church pastor and my supposed husband’s immediate elder sister he accepted to do the court marriage with me,” she explained.
She said the day Osinachi’s death was announced, her fiancee beat her up again.
“It was his immediate elder sister that even pushed me into their own room and locked the door to protect me.
“I wouldn’t expect them to be truthful about if their brother always beat me or not after all my supposed husband is their only son and brother.
“My heart was shattered not just only for Minister Osinachi Nwachukwu’s death but for myself seeing my death and because of what people will say I am trying to walk through it.So that night I didn’t sleep I got a rethink.”
She also said she sought advice from Police officers in their community who advised her to quit the marriage.
On her fiancee’s accusation of shifting the marriage severally, she said her family’s opposition to the marriage was responsible for the postponements.
She said despite the resistance from her family, she insisted on going ahead to marry him.
“After all my fight and I succeeded for the marriage to hold he turned against me.
“He kept beating me in any little provocation because he knew I don’t have anyone to talk to.
“After all at first my family asked me not to marry him that it’s against tradition and I decided to disobey everybody, all my family and friends turned their backs on me.
“At that point I don’t know who to talk to, all I always do is to call the Chairman of our kindred to report to him how my supposed husband has been abusing me,” she added
