A Nigerian woman who has been physically abused by her husband for the 10 years they have been married has cried out to Nigerians to help her as she has nowhere to run to.

The dehumanized woman, Mary Osagie Eriomokhale, posted her pathetic story on a page on Facebook called Females In Nigeria (FIN), stating how her husband and father of four kids have been battering her for many years and whenever she runs to her father’s house, her father would tell her to go back to her husband as he could not accommodate her.

Eriomokhale narrated how her husband has turned her into a punching bag and with no one to help from her family, has decided to take her cries to the public.

Read part of her tearful narration here:

"First year of my marriage he beat me to a point of death; I ran away to my father's house and he came begging that it will not repeat itself again.

Daddy told me he has collected my bride price and he cannot accept me back to the house. He said I should follow my husband.

It continued till I had all my four kids as my hubby keeps using me as a punching bag.

Where will I go to? My dad will not accept me back to the house because he claimed he had eaten my dowry and so I had to endure.

Today again, 2nd of the year 2017, he has resumed his duty as a boxer. I don't anywhere else to go, no one to turn to in times like this."

She is now asking if she should take the bull by the horns and run away before she is killed by her violent husband.
