‘I don’t want to die’ – Chacha Eke announces split from husband a second time in two years
She was married to Mr. Faani on June 13, 2013, at Asaba, Delta State, and announced the news in a late-night posting on her personal Instagram account on Monday.
A Nollywood actor, Chacha Eke has twice in two years, revealed the ending of her nine-year marriage to film director Austin Faani.
The model, who got married to Mr. Faani at the end of June on June 13, 2013, in Asaba, Delta State, revealed the news via a late-night posting on her personal Instagram account on Monday.
The actress said that the motives for the split could have been based on physical assault. The post was a bit confusing for fans as she appeared in a film her husband had recently made”Wanted,” a movie that was exclusively released on the 10th of June on YouTube.
She suggested it’s best to leave in a state of health, or risk becoming an unidentified corpse.
Chacha confessed that she’d endured and lived the lie of her marriage for a long time and apologized for lying to her family and friends.
The 34-year-old actress added that she does not want to go missing or die. She also said that she doesn’t miss. She also revealed that she’s released bits of documents to lawyers as well as the police in the event that something goes wrong.
The entirety of her statement reads like this:
“LEAVE NOW ALIVE OR LEAVE AS A CORPSE
Many have died believing that everything is well while wishing, praying, and hoping for a better day.
I do not want to “die” or go inexplicably “missing”.
I apologize publicly and in a sincere manner for committing a lie over the last few years. Contrary to speculations about random events that there was troubles within my “perceived paradise”.
For the second time in the space of two decades, I’m on social media, announcing that I’m done with my marriage. My long-overdue and unrelenting stance regarding this issue is not a surprise for Austin Faani, the doctors and my parents.
If the pressure is on and suddenly, I’m incommunicado. In that scenario my lawyers along with the welfare department as well as police force of Nigeria Nigerian police force will have my statements in recorded videos/statements that are set to be released across all social media platforms as well as national newspapers.”
