Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia, has made a shocking revelation of how she escaped momentarily from her estranged husband’s abuses through the use of drugs.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, she said she got married as early as 22 and to a man who indulged constantly in domestic violence, revealing that she almost lost her life.
She said her husband’s return to the house everyday was like a nightmare, hence she couldn’t cope but to escape from the violence through the use of drugs.
Etinosa said, “It [the domestic violence] got to a point where I was on drugs. Whenever he [my ex-husband] is coming home, normally as a woman you should be happy that your husband is coming home but I just starched up and doped up so that no matter what he says, no matter what he’s doing, I’m just looking at him. Just so that there would be peace.”
She said she eventually dumped the marriage after praying to God.
She said, “I was green, I no know anything. I was a mumu. I was 22 when I got married. My ex-husband told me that ‘I’m not your friend, I’m your lord.”
