The late Olamide Alli, who was murdered by her fiancé, Chris Ndukwe, had concerns about marrying him and she voiced those concerns to friends in a voice note that has now been made public.
In the VN from 2018, Olamide told the friend that her wedding to Chris has been scheduled for October of that year, however, she wasn’t sure she wanted to get married to him.
She said they’ve known each other for years and they have two kids together, but she doesn’t want kids to be the only reason she’s getting married.
Explaining why she’s having second thoughts about marrying Chris, Olamide said she isn’t sure they know each other well enough.
The wedding didn’t hold again in October 2018. It was postponed to August 2020. Unfortunately, he murdered her in June 2020, leaving behind their sons, aged 7 and 3.
Before killing her, Chris locked her up in his room, put on loud music, then tied her up, covered her mouth with a duct tape, before he proceeded to pull out her braids from the roots, one after the other. He then stabbed her multiple times.
Hers was a slow painful death. Afterward, Chris committed suicide.
The voice note was shared by activist, Esther Ijiwere. She advised women to leave if they aren’t certain about a relationship.
