Relationship expert, Blessing Okoro, has shared a video from her wedding in 2009 while narrating how her ex husband allegedly beat her a day before her wedding and dragged her to the altar.

The mother-of-two, who got married at 19, said her ex-husband Lucky “took away” her “youth at 15 years” and abused her.

She alleged that he beat her in front of family and friends a day before their wedding and also continued beating her after their wedding.

She also claimed that her younger sister witnessed the day he beat her “to coma” just two weeks after their wedding and continued beating her unconscious body.

Blessing eventually divorced him two years later when she was 21 years old. Their divorce was eventually finalised in 2006.

The union produced a child. She said her ex has not provided one kobo for their son’s upkeep for five years.

She dared him to reply her so she can sue him for abuse and molestation. Blessing’s sister and friend reacted, corroborating her story.

She also shared photos of her divorce documents while telling women to be financially independent because divorce is expensive.

Her Instagram post reads;

“Memory lane ….

Corps member empowers ex-convicts in Ekiti, warns against stigmatisation

A serving corps member in Ekiti State, Anuoluwa Elizabeth Balogun, has empowered ex-convicts in the state with tools in various skills, as her Personal Community Development Service (CDS) project in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

Balogun, whose passion was borne out as a result of the numerous psychological challenges ex-convicts faced when released from prison, such as stigmatisation, discrimination, isolation, and instability, embarked on the seamless project to make an impact in her immediate environment.

The ex-convicts were presented with the tools at the one-day sensitisation programme tagged “Sensitisation of the Public Against Stigmatisation of the Ex-Convicts,” in Ado-Ekiti, on Wednesday.

Balogun said that the project is to rehabilitate, reform and reintegrate the ex-convicts, while urging the Federal Government and other relevant stakeholders to map out programmes towards their proper reintegration into the society.

She added that during her pre-release counselling sessions with the ex-convicts, she discovered that the various offenses they committed were as a result of poverty and improper upbringing.

According to her, “This project is set to rehabilitate, reform, and reintegrate a sizeable number of ex-convicts in Ekiti State. It is a smaller version of the big institution I have in mind, which the Federal Government and the State Government should take up, being also ably supported by individuals in the society.

“During the one month pre-release counselling sessions with the inmates, with the professional services, I realised that most of the crimes committed was as a result of poverty, poor upbringing and a bad influence.

“It is on this note that I urge the government to have a well structured rehabilitation centre for them in the custodial centre, so that the psychology of the name is not just being changed but a lot being changed about them by getting them upskilled with also a lot of therapy sessions.”

On her part, the NYSC Ekiti State Coordinator, Mary Chikezie, lauded the efforts of Balogun noting that it is in tandem with the reasons behind the formation of the scheme.

Chikezie enjoined the public to assist corps members who are embarking in their personal CDS projects while urging them to desist from stigmatising ex-convicts.
