Few years back there were rumours that Freeze had left his wife of 15 years and mother of his two kids for a Port Harcourt-based woman. However, after a long silence, the On Air Personality took to his Instagram page to post some photographs of how his estranged wife brutalised him. He also accused her of infidelity.
He captioned one of the photographs thus: “Another incident when my ex tried to strangle me! Do you want more pictures? I can go on for weeks posting such pictures. It used to be like this, at least, twice every month. Yet, my Pastor advised me to stay and that divorce is a sin….. After the separation, I realised that my life was far more important than the institution of marriage.
“Every moment spent with an abusive partner COULD BE YOUR LAST! Leave while you can! I have chosen not to speak up until now for my children’s sake. But when a woman believes she has been scorned because of a horrible past that was no fault of mine and transfers the aggression to me and is hell bent on destroying my very essence I must speak!
“I speak for every broken man, every battered man and every abused man, who is suffering endlessly and needlessly in the hands of a woman because of ‘marriage’ to gather the strength to speak now!
