Her words: ‘’My husband who is a caterer constantly beats me and my two children.

‘’And because of that, he has killed his family’s love.

“Kingsley is a very irresponsible person. He does not provide us with clothing and proper feeding.

‘’He does not pay children’s school fees nor pay house rent.

“He is in the habit of threatening my life and beating the children mercilessly without reasons.

“I have made efforts to see that Kingsley changes for good, but to no avail,” she said.
