The Nollywood actress Chacha Eke-husband, Austin Faani, has refuted claims that he physically beat his wife.

Chacha recently posted on her Instagram profile that her nine-year marriage to Austin was ending because she did not want to continue.

“For the second time in two years, I am here again on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage,” she wrote.

“My long overdue/relentless stance on this is of course no news to Austin Faani, the doctors and my parents.
If push comes to shove and suddenly I am incommunicado; my lawyers, the welfare department and the Nigeria Police Force have my testimonials in recorded video clips/statements set for public release on all social media apps and national newspapers.”

Many people have been led by her message into thinking that she ended the relationship because she had experienced domestic violence at home.

“I am not a violent person. Personally I detest violence in any form. I have never raised my hand on any woman in my life, including my wife.

“Everyone close to this case knows the absolute truth and it is not in my place to divulge it. The one person who started the talk will in due time continues to talk. Let light lead,” he wrote in the post.

The actress’ announcement of the dissolution of her marriage is not the first time. When she first announced her separation from Austin in October 2020, many people at the time assumed that she was a victim of physical abuse.

The actress, who denies her spouse ever hit her or yelled at her, refuted the domestic abuse allegation in a video.

She went on to say that she had been given a bipolar disorder diagnosis and that it had been linked to her pregnancy at the time.
