''It was when my husband beat me mercilessly i believed people truly saw stars whenever i was unconscious. It was my brother who took me to the hospital where i spent two months. There was also a day i was feeding our last child with tea, my husband, out of anger took the tea and poured it on my head.''
''I even persuaded his sister to bring four of her children to our school without paying a dime but instead of showing appreciation, she said i was a lavish spender and that was how i stopped being in charge of the school,'' Emma said
''Each time we fight, he calls me witch saying whenever he intends to start a project and he informs me it eventually fails. He also said if he hand't married me, I would have become a prostitute,'' Mrs Ike said.
''Since i left, he doesn't allow me to speak with our first two children asking me to come home if i really want to see them. Even if i was with him, he leaves home for months on the pretext of different appointments. I can't face all this anymore. I need help.''
The case has been adjourned till 22nd of July, 2015.
