This is so sad and an incident too many jare, another victim of domestic violence. I use to say this and I am still saying it, if it’s not working and it’s life threatening, MOVE out, if it’s threatening your sanity, MOVE. Life is for the living, no “war room movie”, no “what will they say”, it’s not their life, it’s yours. More importantly, don’t STAY because of the children, MOVE because of the children. Everybody that has encouraged her to stay will begin to blame her now and unfortunately, it is too late.
This beautiful lady, Ronke Shonde was found dead in her home yesterday morning and her husband, Lekan Shonde is said to be missing. She was said to have been beaten to death during a domestic dispute in their home. It’s such a heartbreaking thing to make children go through, it’s better to be raised in a broken home than to face the fact that daddy killed mummy or vice versa, they will leave with that trauma all their lives. Unfortunately, the internet never forgets.
Future ambition of the lady aborted, her dreams unfulfilled, broken promises to parents and family members (when I grow up I will take care of you), the man’s life changed forever. Everybody that knows them will be traumatised, family, friends, colleagues, church or mosque members, neighbours, etc. This is avoidable death jare, walking away would have suffice.
They have 2 beautiful children – so what will happen to them now?
