Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke Faani has again declared an end to her nine-year-old marriage to movie director Austin Faani.
This is not the first time the actress is walking out of her matrimonial home. It could be recalled that the actress had in 2020, announced that it was over between her and her husband but made a u-turn a few days after, saying it was because she had bipolar disorder.
She had wrote: “Five days ago, I made a video saying that my marriage to Austin Faani is over and that video came with a lot of backlash from people with many insinuating that it’s a clear case of domestic violence. It’s not. Austin has never laid his hands on me. Austin has never even raised his voice at me and God in heaven knows that’s the truth.
“I’m here at First Delta American hospital, Asaba, receiving treatment. Several psychiatrists have come to assess me mentally and I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Bipolar is real. Here in Africa, we tend not to know about it due to ignorance or overlook it. I cannot tell you all how I’ve been feeling in these tiny videos that I’ve been making but I will, however, show you motion pictures soon.”
However, early on Tuesday, the mother of four said she has been ‘living a lie these past years’ as she alleges domestic violence issues in her marriage.
Chacha said she doesn’t want to die or go inexplicably missing.
According to her, she is done with the marriage, and her lawyer, the welfare department, and the Nigerian police force have her testimonials in recorded video clips and statements, which will be released soon.
She wrote: “LEAVE NOW ALIVE OR LEAVE AS A CORPSE. Many have died pretending all is well while wishing, hoping, and praying for a better tomorrow.”
“I don’t want to “die” or go inexplicably “missing.” I sincerely and publicly apologize for living a lie these past years. True to random speculations, there has been trouble in my “perceived paradise.”
“For the 2nd time in 2 years, I am here again on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage. My long overdue/relentless stance on this is, of course, no news to Austin Faani, the doctors, and my parents.”
“If push comes to shove & suddenly I am incommunicado; my lawyers, the welfare department, and the Nigerian police force have my testimonials in recorded video clips/statements set for public release on all social media apps and national newspapers.”
