How Kwara Pastor Beat Wife To Coma Three Months After Wedding

A Nigerian pastor, identified as Folayemi Richard, has reportedly beaten his pregnant wife, Odunola, to coma over a rift between them.

It is understood that the clergyman committed this assault in their residence located at ita Olodan, Upper Gaa-Akanbi in Illorin.

According to Mrs Odunola, the incident happened in January 2021 when their wedding was three months old, and her pregnancy was a month old.

“Last year, September 26, we got married, and we’ve been living together as husband and wife. When our wedding was one month old, that was when a terrible crisis occurred. We had a disagreement. Suddenly, he ordered me to stand up and that he would take me to a hospital, where he would dump me.

“He started insulting my parents; I cautioned him. He slapped me and began to beat me. He got a cable wire which we use for speakers in the church and beat me.

“I started shouting for help. I became so weak. I dashed out of the house; he followed me and started dragging me on the ground, saying he did not want the marriage again.

“At this time, people had already gathered and were begging him. He locked me out and went to my parents. When he came back again, he ordered me to leave his home,” she narrated.

One of the eyewitnesses, Victoria Oluwaseun, confirmed the pastor pulled his wife out, beating her without considering the pregnancy.

As of the time of this report, the pastor’s mobile lines could not be reached as they were switched off.

Odunola has charged to the National Human Right Commission to seek justice over the matter.

She also alleged that her husband had denied her access to move her belongings from the house.

Chimamanda Pens Emotional Tribute To Mother, Months After Father’s Death

‘How Does A Heart Break Twice’…these are the words of Chimamanda Adichie as she mourns her mother with emotional tribute.

Chimamanda Adichie, has penned an emotional tribute to her late mother, Grace Adichie, who died last month at the age of 78.

Adichie’s mother passed on about eight months after her father, James Adichie, who died last June at the age of 88.

The late Professor of Statistics reportedly died from complications of kidney failure while his wife died after a brief illness.

In a Facebook post late Wednesday, the multiple award-winning writer said her “heart break twice”.

In the piece titled, ‘How Does A Heart Break Twice?’, the author wrote, “How does a heart break twice? To still be immersed in grief, barely breathing again, and then to be plunged callously back into a sorrow you cannot even articulate. How can my mother be gone forever, and so soon after my father?

“She made history as the first female registrar of the University of Nigeria. She was a permanent board member of the Anambra State Basic Education Board ASUBEB.

“On Friday she was at work, in her ASUBEB office in Awka. Her lovely assistant Mimi said she seemed a bit tired. Still, back home after work, she walked the half mile to St. Paul’s Church for Stations of the Cross.

On Saturday, she spent time in Louisa’s shop, outside the gate of our house in Abba, watching the cars and people on the dusty road.

On Sunday, her driver drove her to Mass. Sunday evening she was unwell. She was taken to a private hospital in Awka.

We were worried, but a few hours later, she was better, sitting up, eating rice. On the phone I told her, “We love you, Mummy, try and rest.”

Adichie further narrated, “The next morning, the doctor sent an update to say she was doing even better. But moments later, he took the sudden bewildering decision to transfer her to the Teaching Hospital, and she was hastily moved there.

He claimed the Teaching Hospital had better facilities. “Do my children know I’m being transferred?” she is said to have asked.

Two hours after she arrived at the Teaching Hospital, she died. It was March 1st, my father’s birthday.

“How does a heart break twice? As the days have passed my disbelief has grown. This perpetual astonishment of grief: Did it really happen? My mother is gone forever? How is it possible?

“We were planning for my father’s iyipu-akwa, to mark the end of the formal mourning period, and now I cannot believe that we are planning a funeral. Again.”

“How does a heart break twice? You discover emotions you cannot name. There is an emotion more hollow than sorrow. There is an acceptance drenched in disbelief. Language fails. Clichés come startlingly alive: the heart is truly heavy, it is no mere metaphor.

“The mornings so dark you cannot get up from bed, the erratic pulse, the anger, the surprise, the tiny moments of forgetting, the regrets, the doomed attempts at escape. But the pain is waiting. The pain is inescapable.

“The desperate longing to turn back time, just to see her again, hear her laugh one more time, hug and kiss her. Even if just to say goodbye, even if just to have the chance to say goodbye, to say thank you for everything you did for me and everything you were to me, to say I love you, again.

“The questions. Why so soon? Why like this? Has the universe not given us our own fair share of pain for now?

“To have loving parents, an entire life propped up by them, and in months to have it all end, so abruptly, with such unbearable finality. O kwerom edi,” she stated.
