A 39-year-old Nigerian identified as Princess Josephine Uloma has narrated her ordeal on her quest to find a husband.
She said she did a lot of unimaginable things including getting flogged about 48 times by a self-acclaimed man of God just to get a husband.
“TROUBLE STARTED WHEN I TURNED DOWN A MARRIAGE OFFER FROM A SUITOR WHO HAILED FROM ENUGU STATE.
A FEW MONTHS LATER, I FOUND MYSELF IN AN UNBRIDLED ANGER AND QUERULOUS MANNERS.
I STARTED BEATING UP MEN WHOEVER ASK MY HAND IN MARRIAGE.
ANY MAN WHO COMES NEAR ME I WILL BEAT HIM UP”.
IN TEARS, SHE ADDED:
“MY LIFE IS FULL OF TESTIMONIES, I REJECTED AN OFFER OF MARRIAGE FROM A SUITOR WHO HAILED FROM ENUGU STATE, AND AFTER FEW MONTHS, MY TROUBLE STARTED, I WAS TAKEN TO SEVERAL CHURCHES INCLUDING ONE OF THE PENTECOSTAL CHURCHES AROUND EZENEI AVENUE WHERE I WAS FLOGGED 48 STROKES OF THE CANE BY THE PASTOR.
“AND AFTER I SLEPT FOR TWENTY MINUTES, I TOOK ON THE PASTOR, BEAT HIM UP SILLY AND FORCED HIM TO EAT FROM THE SAND”.
“MY PARENTS DURING THE PROCESS THOUGHT I DID NOT WANT TO MARRY.
THEY ORGANIZED A MAN WHO CAME FROM LONDON TO MARRY ME, AND WHEN WE GOT THERE I BEAT HIM UP AFTER A MINOR QUARREL, AND I WAS ARRESTED AND DEPORTED TO NIGERIA, I LATER REALIZED I WAS NOT MYSELF WHEN I CAME INTO NIGERIA BEFORE I WAS INTRODUCED TO KING’S CHAPEL.”
The woman denied that her problem stemmed from alcohol and/or Indian hemp and said that it was after she started attending King’s Chapel in Asaba, that she was delivered by the prophet in charge.
She added that since her deliverance, she has had over 120 suitors asking for her hand in marriage and that all the suitors are currently being screened by God.
