NIGERIA – Popular Nollywood actress Abimbola Akinsanya, has revealed why she left her marriage with her three month-old baby. The Yoruba movie star, popularly known as “Omo Oloja” in a post on her Instagram page, said she left the union because she did not want to die.
According to her, she wanted to protect herself too, adding that she did not want to become a murderer.
She wrote: “I left that marriage when my son was just 3 months old, you think it was easy to make that decision? No.
“I left early cos I didn’t want to die, I left early cos I didn’t want to lose my child, I left early cos I didn’t want to be a murderer. (It’s a story for another day) I was married for a year and 4-months and it was hellish.
“Hello,” DO NOT KILL ANOTHER PERSON’S CHILD” all in the name of marriage, I am also a mother and I know how I am striving to train and feed my son. Please, don’t pray or wish for a mother to labour in vain,” she added.
The actress got married to her son’s father, Olawale Ayoola in May 2014, but the union was short-lived as the couple parted ways after a year and few months.
