A popular Catholic priest, Reverend Father Chinenye Oluoma, has advised women to seek nullification of a marriage that becomes abusive.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Oluoma made the statement while reacting to the death of gospel artiste, Osinachi Nwachukwu who allegedly suffered abusive leading to her death from her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.
In the video obtained by VANTAGE NEWS, the charismatic priest told his congregation that although the Catholic church doesn’t believe in divorce, it believes in separation from bed and the nullification of a marriage.
He asked women not to wait until they are no more before taking the necessary steps in an abusive marriage.
He said, ‘If your husband is beating you, he will kill you one day. He will kill you one day. Police may arrest him, after a while they leave him. He may even leave long and remarry and if he remarries, another wicked woman, the children you suffered for, will be maltreating the children. Runaway. There is nothing pious, nothing spiritual about staying in a marrriage and you are dying gradually.
“If he doesn’t kill you instantly, he will damage your vital organs and you will die at the age of 60 or fifty something. They will think it is sickness that killed you. Run away I have told you.
“This is the Catholic church. We don’t believe in divorce but there is something called separation from bed and board and there is something called nullification.”
