WICKED: My Husband Stabbed Me 13 Times, Made me Disabled, My Hand Got Amputated over Fears My Beauty Will Attract Men to Date Me -ROSELINE Victory O’Neill … ‘I caught him at different times in the past cheating on me, bringing in different women to our matrimonial bed, then I forgave him’ *Michael Agbaje arrested after failing to honor police investigation *Detectives from force headquarters in Abuja picked up suspect’s blood brother, Paul Tony Agbaeje, accused of threatening to kill Roseline because of her pursuit for justice *“We both had our HIV status check before we got married on November 24, 2018, the result came out negative. Months after marriage my husband started bringing different women on our matrimonial bed. He later tested positive for HIV which he concealed away from me. I confronted him about it and he told me he owed me no explanation. I forgave my husband and remained in the marriage. As a Caterer who sells food at a stand in Cultural Centre Field, Calabar, my life changed for the worse on December 27, 2020. My husband always collects every profit I make and spends it on different women. I had to keep fending for myself so I don’t starve. On that particular day, customers kept trooping in, and I sold my food till 11pm. I called the cab that used to take me home, the phone rang many times but got no response. Lots of people laid on the field till day break. I tried to reach my husband over the phone by then, but he did not pick up. And then saw one of my old classmates whom we chatted briefly. I had to rest my head on the plastic chair I sat on to sell food till day break. In the wee hours of the morning, my husband called me, I quickly picked his call, told him the challenges I faced after I sold my food and asked why he did not pick my call. He started calling me a PROSTITUTE and that he would deal with me since he knew my natural beauty will attract men to me” *BY TITIANA ABIA/CRIME Correspondent, Calabar
