A Nigerian woman has narrated her experience in the hands of her abusive mother, saying she doesn’t want to have kids because she’s scared she’ll end up like her.
Ukwu Ose made this revelation while defending Chidera, the Nigerian boy who went viral when he was filmed destroying his parents’ home after which he said his family is dead to him.
Reacting, Ukwu Ose narrated her own experience growing up with her mother.
She said her mum once used a pestle to break her head. She added that she eventually ran away from home to escape abuse.
She said that when she ran away, she realized she didn’t need her anti-depressants anymore. The atmosphere at her home had been the cause of her depression.
She further stated that her mother was abused by her own parents and she took it out on her kids. As a result, she is scared of having kids of her own to avoid taking out the abuse she suffered from her mother on them.
