Bimbo Akinsanya: Nollywood Actress speaks out on why she fled her marriage



Yoruba actress, Abimbola Akinsanya, has made a comprehensive statement in order to put the record straight following various false reports about her marriage.


“I left that marriage when my son was just 3 months old, you think it was easy to make that decision? No.


“I left early cos I didn’t want to die, I left early cos I didn’t want to lose my child, I left early cos I didn’t want to be a murderer. (It’s a story for another day) I was married for a year and 4-months and it was hellish.


The actress got married to her son’s father, Olawale Ayoola in May 2014, but the union was short-lived as the couple parted ways after a year and few months.


The Yoruba movie star, popularly known as “Omo Oloja” in a post on her Instagram page, said she left the union because she did not want to die and she also did not to kill her spouse too.

“Hello,” DO NOT KILL ANOTHER PERSON’S CHILD” all in the name of marriage, I am also a mother and I know how I am striving to train and feed my son. Please, don’t pray or wish for a mother to labour in vain,” she added.
