Nollywood actress, Victoria Inyama seems to be experiencing marital crisis with her now estranged husband, Ben Okri, who is a celebrated Nigerian writer and also the author of ‘The Famished Road’.
Victoria Inyama who called out her husband in a Facebook post, called him a psychotic beast, who though has a lover in his life, refused to grant her divorce.
Here’s what she wrote;
What’s on my mind hmmmmmmmm. Happy to be alive. Healthy……. getting better…brighter….standing up for myself……regardless of d demon in human form that I have to deal with…………… legion lawyer……….. If not for God……..psychotic beast with his Never ending drama……. he wouldn’t even grant her a divorce………… and d poor bitch living with him……..May God give her sense……….. she’s so dumb ?……………….miserable pair…..
However when one of her friends, Mandy Okosi commented, Victoria Inyama went on to share more details of how she has been living in bondage;
“D bondage is sickening and all his legal antics. They saw the law is fair but not when he manipulates it like he does. He has a live in lover and still wouldn’t divorce me! He asaulted me yesterday and d first time, I called the police on him”.
This is however not the first time the actress has publicly accused her estranged husband of being abusive. According to the actress before the latest accusation, she has been beaten, physically abused allegedly by her husband who she accused of cheating on her.
Posting on her wall a very close friend wrote in 2016, that the actress has been through a lot even with the police stepping in at some stage to rescue her.
According to her friend, Victoria’s devotion to the scriptures and leaning for advice from the men of God seems to be her greatest undoing. She further accused the Pastor of keeping her in the marriage bond based on scriptural injunctions, which prohibits remarriage if he decides to live apart from her husband.
