Young as the marriage was, Akinsanya it was hellish; she did not wish to die and did not want to become a murderer and so leaving was her only way out of the dire situation.

Here’s what she shared on Instagram:

“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 & 4months & it was hellish. Hello, DO NOT KILL ANOTHER PERSON’S CHILD all in the name of marriage.

I am also a mother & I know how I am striving to train & feed my son. Please, don’t pray or wish for a mother to labour in vain oooo it must be AN EYE FOR AN EYE”
