My Father Disowned Me And People Mocked Me Because I Married A Disfigured Man Out Of Love
Abiodun Dada, a Nigerian cobbler, alongside his wife Rumoke, have recently been interviewed by Punch News.
These two became a couple against all odds as Abiodun was disfigured from acid poured on him by his cousin many years ago with the intention to kill him.
During this interview, his wife, Rumoke stated that her father disowned her and people in the community mocked for marrying Abiodun because he was disfigured.
According to her, when she first met her husband based on work she was afraid of him. She got his number from his shop door and called him to make some shoes.
However, he started calling her often which she initially ignored, but with time they began a mutual relationship through which they fell in love with each other.
Rumoke made it clear that her father was against their relationship, but her mother was accommodating.[ruby_related heading=”More Read” total=5 layout=1]
Her father disowned her after she decided to marry Abiodun and even people in the community started mocking her.
She said, “My father initially disowned me because I decided to marry him. He said I have brought shame and embarrassment to his family.
“When I pass the streets, I hear people mocking and gossiping about me. I turn deaf ears to them. My husband and I love each other. We are very happy with our children”.
