A middle-aged woman, Kafayat Ayobamidele has narrated how some people in Nigeria are threatening to take her life.

Ayobamidele, a mother of two based in South Africa said her life has been under threat since her marriage with her ex-husband, a situation that forced her to leave her former residence at No. 22, Salem Street, Magboro area of Ogun State seven years ago.

According to her, she was not aware that her ex-husband had a wife identified as Folashade, whom he married legally before she agreed to marry him about thirteen years ago.

The woman disclosed this in a WhatsApp note made available to journalists last weekend.

Ayobamidele stated that she could not come to Nigeria to check on her two children as a result of the daily threat she received from her former husband’s wife.

The victim added that she was attacked two years ago when she came to Nigeria to check on her children by some thugs suspected to be hired by the woman, saying she was sexually molested during the process.

“My life is not safe in Nigeria. That’s the reason I left the country for South Africa. I had some issues with my ex-husband whom I had a child for. Before I married him, he lied to me to be single. But I later got to know he had a wife whom he married legally after a child.

“When the wife got to know about me, she started threatening to kill. She said I should leave her husband, saying he belonged to her. I had to escape Nigeria when the threat was getting out of hand and I wasn’t safe anymore.

“After some time, I decided to go back to Nigeria to check on my two children. On getting there, I don’t know how the wife got to know I was around. She came to attack me with some thugs. Those thugs whisked me away to an unknown place. I was beaten and got injured in that process. I almost got killed but God saved my life.

“I have to leave Nigeria immediately I escaped the assassination attempt. At this point, I’m not safe to go back to Nigeria and my children are there. I cannot go back there to check on them. In fact, I was molested during that process,” she asserted.
