A housewife who refused to prove her faithfulness to her husband before a juju priest was beaten silly by her husband, Human Rights Lawyer, Emeka Ugwuonye, has revealed.
The woman was prompted to tell her story to the lawyer after he did a public enlightenment post, saying that a woman should not be forced to swear any oath before any juju priest or babalawo to show she has been faithful.
Sharing the story, the lawyer included the bloodied face of the woman including the screenshot of her messages.
He said: “You can see the picture of the woman in her battered and brutalised state. And you can compare her badly injured face with pictures she took before the beating. You will see how a beautiful and bubbling lady was dehumanised by her own husband and almost killed just because she did not swear before a juju altar.”
The woman reportedly objected not because she was not faithful, but because her conscience as a christian would not allow her to take such an oath.
