Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke-Faani, has announced the end of her nine-year marriage to her husband, Austin Faani.
Sharing a picture of herself and her estranged husband on Instagram page, the popular actress stated that she doesn’t want to die or go missing.
In the post, the actress also apologised to her fans for “living a lie” in her marriage.
“Many have died pretending all is well whilst wishing, hoping and praying for a better tomorrow. I don’t want to “die” or go inexplicably “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,” she wrote.
The couple got married in 2013, and has four kids together.
The actress had first announced a split from her husband in an Instagram video posted in October 2020.
“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 the time.
This led to the rumours 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.
