"Dear Pulse,

My name is Annette and I have been married for two years now with a lovely daughter. When I was dating my husband, Obinna, I never knew he was into some fraudulent activities, the one popularly called Yahoo-Yahoo.

He told me he was into the importation of electronic items and seemed to doing well. Though I noticed that most times, he would be browsing the Internet all night, he quickly dispelled any doubt in my mind by telling me that he was scouring the net to get better deals from manufacturers.

Initially, I did plan to get married to him but along the line, I became pregnant and since I did not want to get an abortion, he came to meet my parents and we had our introduction. It was soon after we started living together that I got to know what Obinna really was.

I begged him to get an honest job or business to do but he got mad and beat me up. I have been stigmatized as the wife of a Yahoo-Boy by people who know he does for a living while the police have visited us on countless occasions. Anytime I go to the station to see him when he is detained, the police would always mock at me, with some even threatening to arrest me as well.

As if that is not enough, Obinna has been telling me to sleep with other men to bring money as the Yahoo business is no more lucrative. Instead of him as the man, going out there to work for money, my husband wants me to go into prostitution so as to feed him and our child.

I am fed up and want to quit but my mother who had earlier warned me, says I must stay in the marriage.
