Olakunle Churchill, the estranged husband of Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, says his wife is unstoppable when under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
In an interview with Azuka Ogujiuba of Media Room Hub, the businessman gave his own account of the Ghana incident which was brought to light by Dikeh.
The actress had recently revealed, also to Ogujiuba, that she once fled to the Nigerian embassy in Ghana to avoid his domestic abuse.
But the Ghana police had subsequently come out to debunk her claims, saying that she was the violent person in the situation.
Speaking in the same vein, Churchill recounted: “I picked her up from the airport just a day before. We had a misunderstanding so she decided to move to the hotel. She came the next morning and I was not even home and I sent her a text that I went for a friend’s housewarming party.
“I heard she came around 3, 4am and started breaking down everything. Luckily for me, I switched off the electric fence before I left the house. She pulled down the fence and jumped into the compound.
“There’s this thing about my wife. I’m sorry about this but I have to say it.
“She gets too temperamental due to negative intake – alcohol and marijuana, anything that has something to do with drugs. When her anger starts, six men can’t hold Tonto down talkless of me beating her.
“She destroyed everything in the house. The police people could not stop her. After I paid for her bail from police cell, she promised never to go back to drugs or alcohol. Three weeks after this incident, she was pregnant.”
Churchill further said he desperately wanted to see his son, especially on his birthday but the actress frustrated his attempts.
He also denied being a wife beater, saying he has never done anything like that in his life.
Churchill said 95% of Dikeh’s allegations against him were lies just as he also denied giving her a sexually transmitted disease.
He said: “I am not a woman beater. I have never done that in my life and I will never beat any woman. Everything I watched her say was 95% lies. The only truth she said was that ‘I loved my husband’.
“They were all lies. STDs! Not this millennium. The last time I had STDs was in secondary school. At this stage of my life, STDS?
“I don’t know what she wants. I think she’s trying to stay out of marriage. I was not even around when she moved out of my house. She came with two trucks and moved everything. She got another house and till date, I don’t even know where she stays.”
