Nigerian preacher and marriage counsellor, Reverend Funke Felix-Adejumo, has advised people in abusive relationships to run for their lives.
Rev. Adejumo gave the advice during a live session on Instagram while reacting to the death of popular gospel musician, Osinachi Nwachukwu.
It was reported that Nwachukwu died of throat cancer and had been on life support for about two months. However, her husband has been arrested on grounds of suspected culpable homicide and that investigation into the matter is ongoing.
Unconfirmed reports claimed that late Osinachi was placed on life support after her husband kicked her on her chest during a recent attack on her.
Reacting to the news surrounding Osinachi’s death, Rev. Adejumo said;
“Woman you are not inferior to anybody. Don’t think that marriage is all that makes you. Please understand that you are important with or without marriage. Don’t die in any abusive relationship.”
Speaking further, she said; “submission is not subjugation, submission is not slavery. The fact that you are the head of a relationship does not mean that you should kill the body in the name of religion”
