Kezia Irek, the wife of a politician in Akwa Ibom state, Hon. Robinson Uwak, has accused him of domestic violence and threatening to kill her and her parents.
The mum of two took to Facebook on Sunday, May 29, to call out her husband for allegedly physically assaulting her after she tried to exit the marriage.
According to her, she resolved to leave the marriage after discovering that Robinson deceived her into getting married to him after claiming he had divorced his first wife.
She said after he discovered that she was planning to leave him, he beat her up and threatened to send hired assassins to kill her and her parents, while swearing over a bible.
Sharing photos of her bruised body, Kezia wrote,
“HON. ROBINSON UWAK STRANGLED ME and ATTEMPTED to kill me when HE FOUND OUT I WAS TRYING to leave the marriage & he did this right in the room where my children were asleep.
He kicked my parents out of his house at 2AM after he put a machete to my mom’s neck and kicked her twice to the ground causing her to injure herself and break her phone.
He lied to me that he was not married to his ex wife anymore- that he was divorced.*
He is now threatening to kill me and my parents for me leaving him.
I have Pictures, Videos & Audio evidence.
I got married to him after he deceived my family and I that he was divorced from his ex wife. Stating that his marriage was annulled because it didn’t legally exist- this was a lie. He deceived my family and I into being married to him.
I sit here in terrible pains from my head to my toes after I was terribly battered by my so called “husband” while he accused me of unfounded and blatant lies. My neck is swollen and hurts- I can’t swallow well- from how he tied my neck with the nape of what I was wearing and used both hands to strangle me telling me he will “kill me and go to jail.” He used his feet to stomp on my chest with all of his might and I have severe chest pains & aches. He slapped and pounded my skull with his fists so many times- hitting my head hard against the tiles in his room over and over while my children slept in the next room.
On the 27th of May around 8AM, He charged into my room where I sleep with my twins and started to accuse me falsely. Before I could open my mouth to even understand what was happening, he flung me on the floor and began to strangle me. I was screaming. I was horrified. He then told me to move to his room- next door- he locked all the windows and doors & commanded me sit on the floor & then proceeded to tell me that I can never leave the marriage- and break up his home- he said will kill my family and I. He said he is ready to commit murder. He said it doesn’t matter how long it takes, 5-10-15-20 years, that he will find my parents and I and kill us. He will use N50 million, even N100 million to send kidnappers and killers to end my life and that of my parents. He said I cannot embarrass him maritally a second time.
That he only let his first wife go because she didn’t have kids. But he will kill me before I leave him. And that I cannot have custody of his kids. He said I will always look over my shoulder in this country for the rest of my life. and that he will leave to the U.S and pay people here in Nigeria to kill me and my parents. He swore over and over on a hard copy of the Bible that he will kill me & my parents.
He claims he uses the services of the SSS to track the phones of people in my life against their wills. Please his friends in DSS & SSS need to be investigated.
He threatens my friends and family at any provocation.
I found out he is still in a divorce tussle with his ex wife and I began to make moves with my lawyer on how to leave the marriage because it means my marriage to him is void & he’s committing bigamy.
He is lying that I’m interested in his property- and I want to kill him for his money- how is that possible when I’m trying to get the marriage declared void?-
I only want my kids and I’m not interested in the marriage again.
He said Nigeria is a lawless country and nothing can happen to him and even if I tell anyone all his threats, no one will believe me because I have no proof. But I have audio recordings of him saying this.
In January he put a machete to my mom’s neck and kicked her down twice to the coal tar in his estate- injuring her. That day, he kicked my mom & dad out of his house because I didn’t make noodles & eggs for him at 2am in the morning. He made me stand outside the house in the cold at 2AM like an animal for not making food.
The truth of his wickedness to me and my family are too many and horribly frightening! We have been living a nightmare! Please my life and the lives of my parents are in danger. I just want to live with my kids peacefully without the threat of death hanging over me. I didn’t do wrong to marry this man. My family didn’t do wrong to accept & believe him.
I have pictures, audios and videos of all I’m saying. I am tired of living in fear. I’m tired of being silent. My aged parents do not deserve this. They didn’t do wrong by allowing me marry him. They don’t deserve to die because they allowed me to marry him.
He said Nigeria is lawless; there is no law and order in Nigeria.
He said he will wait for the police, army and NAPTIP to be tired of my case- then he will kill me & my parents.
Please I’m appealing for help! International NGOs, Nigerian Government-please help! My family and I are in danger!”
