Apostle Johnson Suleman, a clergyman, has urged women who are in abusive marriages to leave while they are still alive.
In the wake of the death of gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu, whose husband, Peter Nwachukwu, was accused of physically assaulting her throughout their marriage, he made the request. There are claims that she died as a result of an injury inflicted during one of her husband’s many attacks.
Suleman said he was ridiculed online a while back when he remarked that certain marriages should be terminated during a recent sermon at his church. Following Osinachi’s death, he claims that some individuals have realized what he was saying was true. He added that if any male member of his church beats his wife, he and other brothers in his church will retaliate.
“Useless,” he said of the brothers of women whose spouses beat them.
