Africa’s table tennis star, Funke Oshonaike, has reacted to the death of popular gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, saying she is a survivor of two abusive partners.
Funke Oshonaike said in a Facebook post, “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!!
“I can’t even believe that some of you could have the guts to still be talking bad about her even in her grave, especially you Nigerian women!!
“Have you been physically abused before? If you’ve not been then you don’t have any idea of what physically abused women are going through, so you have no moral right to abuse them or talk about them anyhow.
“What they need from you is your words of encouragement, your help and your prayers.
“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.
He dealt with me! I was his mugun, it was like I was charmed because all that I had was in his name!! I had to run away from him with the advice of some wonderful people around me and the advice the police gave to me.
“I had to start my life back when I came back from Atlanta 96. He was still waiting for me to come give him all I earned! But God delivered me from his wicked hands. Oh how much I suffered!! I was living in bondage! I was his slave.
