Nigerians lambast husband of abandoning blue- eyed children and wife
An Ilorin-based man, Abdul-Wasiu Omo-Dada, has drawn the ire of Nigerians for dumping his blue-eyed wife, Risikat Azeez.
The PUNCH, in an exclusive video, had reported that Omo-Dada rejected his wife and two daughters because of the colour of their eyes.
Azeez, who said she sees clearly with her eyes regardless of the colour, lamented that her husband, who married her that way, changed when she gave birth to two kids with the same set of eyeballs.
She narrated her experience of living with blue eyes, which is alien to the dark hue that most people have in this part of our world, to The PUNCH in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
The mother of two, who spoke in Yoruba Language, said, “I was born with these eyes and I also gave birth to my children with same pair of eyes. Since I was born, I have never had any challenge with my eyes. I have never been to the hospital due to any discomfort. I thank God.
“No one had this set of eyes before me in my family; both from my mother and father’s side. I’m the first to have this kind of eyes. And when I started bearing children, they also have it and I did not regret that I have this set of eyes with my children.”
She further stated, “My husband whose name is Abdul Wasiu Omo-Dada is very aware of the condition of my eyes and he loved me for who I am. Things started getting bad when I had my first child and later my second child. He totally changed and he would shut me up and walk out on me whenever I tried to start a conversation with him.
“His parents even told him, ‘Will you keep on giving birth to children with this kind of eyes?’ He changed to the extent that he would leave the house for a whole week before coming back home. There was no food and no provision that I had to go to my parents’ place to feed.
“My parents later asked me to leave his house. Since I left till now, he has not shown up to ask why I left or ask after me.
“My first daughter who is almost five years old has never attended a school before but I will like them to be educated.”
