Jumoke’s journey to hell began twelve years ago when she met Dayo at a friend’s wedding in Surulere. She was 22 at the time and a graduate of Business Administration, Obafemi Awolowo University. He was 2 years older, kind, attentive and friendly. Quite typically, she soon fell for him. He was a good looking, sweet and loving man whom she was lucky to be dating and of course things moved pretty fast, they were a married couple by traditional rites within 6 months.
Within a few months of their marriage, his behaviour got more and more controlling, he wouldn't let Jumoke out the house to search for a Job which they desperately needed. Soon he started to hit her and threatened to kill her if she leaves him. She was scared for her life and there were times when she returned home to her parents but her mother was constantly reminding her that nobody’s marriage is perfect, she should be patient, Dayo will change.
The story continues in a forthnight. However, we would like to know what you think- will Dayo change back to being the sweet and loving man Jumoke once knew? Or should Jumoke move on to rebuild her life without Dayo?
