Tonto Dikeh in a new post on Instagram has warned estranged husband, Oladunni Churchill, who she refers to as ‘EX’ to desist from “spreading scandalous and baseless lies” about her.
“He has even resorted to some very intimidating tactics in a bid to discredit me and my story.”
Recall Tonto had accused Churchill of abuse and adultery in a recent interview, citing an example while they were in Ghana and she had to run to the Nigerian embassy for safety after her husband had battered her. Then yesterday, a Ghanaian Crime Officer, identified as Supt. Joseph Oppong, refuted he claim in an interview that she ran to the Nigerian Embassy in Ghana after receiving a beating from Churchill; he said it was Churchill that reported the case to the police because she had gotten into a drunken rage and destroyed properties worth $15,000 and pointed a gun at his guard at his Trassaco home in Accra, Ghana in 2015.
She says, “for the avoidance of doubt,that everything I have shared is true
shared more photos to prove she was battered several times during their relationship…
I have said the truth and I have pictures and videos to back my story. I will not hesitate to use them to vindicate myself.”
She adds that her intention of sharing her story is to help others and not discredit anyone.
She shared another picture evidence of scars suffered from domestic violence and urged everyone to “create the awareness of the wrongness of this act, with a view of solving this problem permanently”.
“Domestic violence is a scourge in the world.In Africa especially,this evil is rampant.African traditions preach & teach the almost absolute submission of the wife to the husband or the husband’s almost ownership of the wife.Hence, to the uninformed & uneducated woman,domestic violence is easily accepted as a norm,this is precisely the reason why domestic violence is rampant in our society.It is therefore obvious that one of the most effective ways to curb this scourge is to inform and educate people; l/we must create the awareness of the wrongness of this act, with a view of solving this problem permanently.I dnt take for granted that God has made me a voice.He has blessed me with means & a celebrity status.Most of all, I am a strong Christian. Our Christian faith encourages us to use the gifts given to us by God for the benefit of others.I also have come to learn & realise,that God allows us to experience things so that on the long run we can help others avoid or survive similar experiences.It is for this reason that I shared my horrible experiences of wife battery,perhaps I might help someone;if I only succeed in helping one person,it would have been well worth it.
It has been brought to my attention my EX is spreading scandalous & baseless lies about me, he has even resorted to some very intimidating tactics in a bid to discredit me and my story.I would like to state for the avoidance of doubt,that everything I have shared is true.I went through those experiences and to the glory of God, I survived and I am a better person today.I would like to inform my antagonists that I have no problem with fighting back,I have said the truth and I have pictures and videos to back my story. I will not hesitate to use them to vindicate myself.That I have not shared these strong evidence2 date is borne out of respect that this man remains the father of my son.In the event that he will resort to lies in a bid to save face & further tarnish my image becomes unwarranted insult upon severe physical & mental injury.Let me reiterate,that my sole objective is 2help people,I’m not interested in smearing anybody’s perceived image or good name,I strongly advice that you MrX be warned”
