A Nigerian businesswoman, Patience Egbor, also known as Petra, has shared the heart-wrenching story of how her husband left her and their two children when she went broke.
In an interview with Business Day Metro, the woman recounted how she met and married her husband in 2018 and became the breadwinner of the family.
The woman, who owns a beauty pageant brand that raked in millions of naira, said things started going south when she bought a car in her name.
According to her, her husband became jealous and began giving her attitude because of the car and how she paid the bills whenever they went out together.
She felt broken when she received a message from her husband, stating that their marriage had been over since 2019.
Due to her financial situation, she couldn’t provide for her children.
Whenever she contacted him for money, he would send the meager sums of N2,000 and N5,000, which were barely enough to feed the kids.
She tearfully narrated how she went days without eating because she was saving her money to feed the children.
She said she is on the verge of being evicted from her house and needs financial help.
