Popular Nigerian actress, Chacha Eke Faani's, nine-year marriage to Austin Faani has come to an end.
The actress stated on Instagram, alongside a photo of herself and her estranged husband, that she did not want to die or go missing.
Chacha also apologized to her fans in the late Monday post for "living a lie" in her marriage.
"Many have died pretending all is well while wishing, hoping, and praying for a better tomorrow," read the announcement, "Leave now or leave as a corpse." I don't want to 'die' or go mysteriously 'missing.'
“I sincerely and publicly apologize for living a lie these past years. True to random speculations, there has been trouble in my ‘perceived paradise’.
“For the second time in two years, I am here again on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage.
“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 Nigerian Police Force have my testimonials in recorded video clips/statements set for public release on all social media apps and national newspapers.”
The couple, who married in 2013, has four kids together.
In October 2020, the actress had first announced a split from her husband in an Instagram video.
“I don’t have a lot to prove that I am done with him but am done. I’m leaving with my life. I can’t say a lot now but you will hear my story,” she said at that time.
This led to the rumors that she suffered domestic violence in the marriage.
However, the actress debunked the domestic violence claim in a video, stating that her husband has neither beat her nor ever raise his voice at her.
She then revealed that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder which was attributed to her pregnancy at that time.
Amid the controversy, the actress welcomed their fourth child in 2021.
