A 39-year-old Nigerian identified as Princess Josephine Uloma has narrated her ordeal on her quest to find a husband.
She said she did a lot of unimaginable things including getting flogged about 48 times by a self-acclaimed man of God just to get a husband.
“TROUBLE STARTED WHEN I TURNED DOWN A MARRIAGE OFFER FROM A SUITOR WHO HAILED FROM ENUGU STATE.
A FEW MONTHS LATER, I FOUND MYSELF IN AN UNBRIDLED ANGER AND QUERULOUS MANNERS.
I STARTED BEATING UP MEN WHOEVER ASK MY HAND IN MARRIAGE.
ANY MAN WHO COMES NEAR ME I WILL BEAT HIM UP”.
IN TEARS, SHE ADDED:
“MY LIFE IS FULL OF TESTIMONIES, I REJECTED AN OFFER OF MARRIAGE FROM A SUITOR WHO HAILED FROM ENUGU STATE, AND AFTER FEW MONTHS, MY TROUBLE STARTED, I WAS TAKEN TO SEVERAL CHURCHES INCLUDING ONE OF THE PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES AROUND EZENEI AVENUE WHERE I WAS FLOGGED 48 STROKES OF THE CANE BY THE PASTOR.
“AND AFTER I SLEPT FOR TWENTY MINUTES, I TOOK ON THE PASTOR, BEAT HIM UP SILLY AND FORCED HIM TO EAT FROM THE SAND”.
“MY PARENTS DURING THE PROCESS THOUGHT I DID NOT WANT TO MARRY.
THEY ORGANIZED A MAN WHO CAME FROM LONDON TO MARRY ME, AND WHEN WE GOT THERE I BEAT HIM UP AFTER A MINOR QUARREL, AND I WAS ARRESTED AND DEPORTED TO NIGERIA, I LATER REALIZED I WAS NOT MYSELF WHEN I CAME INTO NIGERIA BEFORE I WAS INTRODUCED TO KING’S CHAPEL.”
The woman denied that her problem stemmed from alcohol and/or Indian hemp and said that it was after she started attending King’s Chapel in Asaba, that she was delivered by the prophet in charge.
