Junior Pope, a popular Nollywood actor, recently shared a story about how he once took his wife’s gold jewellery without her permission to borrow money from a trader.
In an interview with Punch, the actor explained that he and his wife were struggling financially in the first year of their marriage, and things were far from easy.
However, he stated that he would never lay a hand on his wife or take anything from her again. He claimed that their financial situation had improved considerably, and he would not want to
jeopardize their relationship by doing something foolish.
Junior Pope said: “Back then it seemed like it wasn’t working, it was not easy at all. I have not mentioned it before but to the glory of God, today let me share this.
‘‘After I got married, the first year was not rosy; I collected my wife’s gold jewellery and used it to borrow money from aboki. So, I give Him the glory for giving me a patient wife.
‘‘Why would I want to touch a woman like this? God forbid. One thing I told myself and God is that the day I lay my hands on my wife, let me run mad. Instead, I walk away.” He added.
