After allegedly beating his wife and locking her up against her will, a Nigerian philanthropist has publicly begged for forgiveness.
A Nigerian philanthropist, Dion Osagie, who is popular on social media has publicly apologized to his wife months after allegedly battering her. Dion Osagie took to his Facebook page to write an open letter to his wife apologizing for what he did and also promised her he will be a better man.
Recall that Osagie had in late January 2018 reportedly assaulted his wife before locking her up against her will. He was also alleged to have beat Winifred up, hit her head with the handle of a knife, then locked her up against her will in their house in Benin, Edo state until she sent an SMS to her brothers and they rushed down to break her out of the house.
The duo married in June of 2016 in an elaborate wedding. After they got married, the American-based entrepreneur would flaunt his wife on social media. But the domestic abuse started not long after they got married until the most recent one that was made public, according to reports.
While begging for forgiveness, Osagie wrote:
“Open letter to my wife.
Life is not always a bed of roses.
Dear Wife, I hope you are enjoying your vacation this far. I write this letter with so much love for you in my heart. I am struggling to find words I can use to lessen the hurt that I may have caused you but then again actions speak louder and I will rather show you.
I offer no excuse for my silly ways and I can only say I’m deeply sorry for having to put you through any drama because you simply do not deserve it. I’m certainly not asking for your total forgiveness but I’m appealing for time to allow me the chance to put right all the wrongs things.
I know it won’t be easy but I want to rebuild that trust and make things even better between us. It has been my attitude to correct every wrong not just with you but with everyone including those who hurt me. I am a man who is certainly not afraid to let the world know how much I love my wife and I have always dreamed to use my marriage as the perfect example to the world how marriage should be. I may fall short sometimes doesn’t mean I am bad. I may have my flaws but I am confident that I am better than most husbands.
Believe me or not, it is not easy to live in a 4 wall corner of a house with a person from a total different background as yours. It takes a lot of challenges to get things right. However, we must not only look at the negative aspects of our lives.. We should also look at the positive vibes. Those times we have made each other smile, it has not been so bad all the way. Many marriages face challenges but the ability to overcome them is why it is called marriage. Remember you have sang “Katopot of envy several times” ðŸ˜�
I want to save this marriage of ours. We have gone through so much together. I know you have put a lot on hold for me which I do not take for granted. I also want you to know that I have great plans for you. If we fail to plan, we plan to fail. I don’t want to be a failure and I will never be one. I know sorry wouldn’t be enough to alleviate your pain and erase the bad memories.
What I fervently hope for now is for you to give me a chance to make you happy again and prove to you that I can be a better husband. Remember, I am not perfect, you are not perfect, no one in the world is perfect, God sees our imperfectly perfectly. Like you always say, it is a greater strength to forgive. I hereby request your greatness. We all have been broken at some points but we are certainly not beyond repair.
Over 1000 persons, family and friends around the world have reach out to you to express their love and concern.. If you can’t forgive me, at least for their sake it is necessary you do. Always remember because of my work, service to humanity, the devil will always try to break me. If you stop loving me, they have won, If stoping my work will make you more happy then I will. Never forget you are my Godsent.
Just Incase you decide to leave me, you must invite everyone that was present at the introduction, traditional wedding and white wedding to attend the divorce ceremony. As for me, I am not leaving and it is for better or for worse according to the altar of God you believe in.
Darling, I’m sorry once again.
Thanks for being a great mother to all my boys. Happy mother day! Together we can
