Sonia Adesuwa, the estranged wife of former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has revealed why she left her marriage.
The young mum who recently spoke more about her experience being married to the athlete via her Instagram stories, stated in a post on her Instagram page that she chose to leave the marriage for the sake of her children and not because she was tired of fighting with her man.
Ighalo’s ex said she got married at 19 and tried all she could to make it work like a good African woman who wanted her husband to succeed.
Adesuwa recounted how an actress married to an Edo man visited her home in 2018 and called her aside to advise her to be prayerful.
According to the footballer’s ex, people with heightened spirits understood what the movie star meant, but she only laughed because she knew it was impossible to kill an only child who had an assignment on earth. R
In her post, the mother of three urged women who are married to learn to stand up for themselves. She also asked married women to ensure that they do not let any mother-in-law step into and control their homes.
“I also want to use this opportunity to encourage every woman out there. I read a few of your messages… Sis, let no one intimidate you, let no evil MIL control your home. Stand up for yourself and your children. Remember, Luke 10:19 says GOD has given us power to tread against scorpions and serpents.
Be prayerful, trust me. If not for prayers and my boldness, I would have been forgotten by now. I chose to walk out of my marriage not because I was tired of fighting but because I chose my children over marriage.
Remember, I got married at 19, and I invested so much in my marriage as a real African woman who would do anything to see her husband succeed.
Flashback to when a famous Naija actress who married an Edo man came to the house in 2018. She called me aside and said, “Sonia, be very prayerful.” Those who have the spirit to see beyond the physical would understand what she meant.
I laughed, but within me, I said they cannot kill an ONLY CHILD who has an assignment on earth. I hear people saying she’s pained and broke bla bla bruh, go ask them, I was born with a SILVERSPOON.
I promise to open a platform in the future to help and encourage women who are going through hell in their marital home. They need to speak up. Remember, marriage Is to enjoy, not to endure. Thanks once again for your kind words and prayers. God bless you all.”
Sonia had earlier taken to social media to make serious allegations about her ex-husband. She claimed the former Manchester United player was sleeping around with different women including a Nollywood actress and a Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality star.
In her recent outburst, Sonia also threatened to expose more of Ighalo’s dirty secrets. She also claimed she helped Ighalo throughout his career and assisted his immediate family travel to Europe.
