” My mother was not educated.
She was not in love with my father.
My father was almost 40 when his uncle told him it was time he got married. He told them to get a wife for him.
My uncle went out to a neighboring village and told them the teacher wanted to get married.
The women came out.
He looked around and picked one and that was it.
He brought this 15-year-old who didn’t have the courage to look at my father. She gave him ten children and was still shy. Seven boys and three girls”.
Reacting, Ms Idahosa who was appalled by his comment, left her remarks on the Instagram page.
According to her, his mum was a victim of rape and a child bride.
” How can he laugh about her being “shy?”
Oga, she was not shy.
She was a victim of rape and was a child bride.
She wasn’t respectful of his age, she was afraid for her life.
