Having a loving and healthy marriage with your spouse is what most women wish for, but for some women like Victoria Inyama, their marriages aren’t all sunshine and roses.
Actress Victoria Inyama took to her socials to explain what happened in her previous marriage. In an Instagram Live session, the thespian talked about the ill-treatment that she received from her former husband Godwin Anderson.
While in an IG live session with Malin Anderson who is a UK- based mental health advocate, Victoria revealed the shocking details of how Godwin would threaten to kill her and how he continuously subjected her to emotional abuse. She also recalls how she ended up getting arrested in front of her kids which she says was the most humiliating moment in her life.
This is what the mother of three had to say about how Godwin treated her:
“I was scared because he would tell me ‘I know a lot of people in prison, my clients that owe me a lot of favour because they didn’t do long term and I’ll just waste you and nothing is going to happen.’ At that point I just told him that I’m ready to die, I’m not coming back to you, he said alright, we will see about that.
“He would bring his girlfriends to my house to drop off the kids and one day I said can we just go for a divorce and he said you can’t divorce me, I own you, you are my property, divorce me? I said you’ve moved on, you are living with another woman in your house, he said ‘so? you are not in my house anymore, there has to be a woman in my house’ and I requested a divorce.
He went on to say ‘first of all you cant divorce me and second of all, which man is going to want a woman with three kids? Oh, you think its because you’ve gone to the university that you think you are now intelligent? You are not intelligent.”
“I was arrested in front of my kids and locked up for 12 hours. That was my most humiliating moment in life”, she added.
