LAGOS: Chioma Rowland, fondly called ‘Chefchi’ and fiancée of the celebrated Nigerian star musician, David Adeleke, has reacted to claims that her relationship was going through crisis.
It will be recalled that there have been reports on social media that the duo are not together anymore due to domestic issues amongst the lovers, and that the singer also sustained a leg injury in a recent clash between the duo.
Against this backdrop, Chioma reacting to the report, however took to her Instagram account in the evening of Tuesday, June 15, 2020 to address the issue, stating that David has never in his entire life lifted a finger on her.
Chioma also described those peddling the false information as rumour-mongers who do not wait to get their facts right before dishing out fake news to the public.
She stated that the issue of domestic violence and abuse shouldn’t be taken lightly, adding that it was the only reason the issue is been addressed.
Her words, “I know you guys always love to spread all kinds of rumours and fake stories for your entertainment purposes.
“I have also known from the first day what to expect from blogs and the media especially with myself and family being the public figures.
“However, I have never for once come out to respond to any blogger or react to any rumour from fake news peddlers before as it has never been my nature to get involved in online battles or even pay too much attention to social media.
“But I must say I have found quite disturbing the stories of domestic abuse between myself and David and for once feel a need to speak up.”
Chioma continued, “Domestic violence and abuse is no joke and equally not an issue to ever take lightly.
“I would like to state that never has there ever been an incident of abuse in my home.
“He has never in his life lifted a finger to touch me and I have never so much as even pushed him.
“I believe with everything we peddle as human beings whether offline or online, we should have a bit of fear of God more so when speaking on things we know absolutely nothing of.
“I can’t say for sure that I know where such stories must have been generated from, but I want to let everyone showing concern whether fake or real, that such has never and will never happen.”
She stated further, “Also, we do not take such allegations of abuse lightly and if such persists then we will be left with no other choice, but to jointly take up action against the perpetrators of these unbelievable rumours.
“I would also want to let the beautiful young ones out there know that they should never ever allow any man to lay his hands on them while they keep quite.
“I advise that if you were ever to suffer such, ensure you SPEAK UP!
“Also, with all that is going on in the world right now, we cannot just sit around and conceal or encourage women to condone such acts.”
