Man Blames RCCG Church For Marriage Crash “Nigerian Women In UK Are Taught To Abuse Their Husbands”

Pictured above is Ayadi Moniaye, a divorcee who accused the Redeemed Christian Church of brainwashing his wife to abuse him.

Moniaye claimed the Jubilee Parish of RCCG in Manchester ended their marriage after they allegedly turned his wife against him.

Moniaye, who said he got married to his wife in 2000, said the marriage packed up in 2009 after years of domestic violence. Because according to him, a group in the parish taught women how to get the support of the UK immigration policy by abusing their spouses.

Hear what Moniaye told Punch

“Nigerian women in the UK were brainwashed by the group to abuse their husbands so they can claim their husbands’ property and exploit the UK immigration policy to their
advantage. I challenged the church, telling the coordinators of the programme that the Bible did not support such practice. Unknown to me, my wife was part of it.”

“On one of such occasions, she injured me. She later called the police to drive me out of the house. When the police got to our home, they met the children around me, consoling me, and because of what they saw, they could not drive me out of the house.

After series of such unprovoked attacks, my wife admitted that she was maltreating me to get me out of the house.”

Moniaye showed the Punch correspondent documents detailing his ordeals in the UK, including an alleged accusation by his wife that he was mentally unstable. The allegation of mental instability was, however, rejected by a document dated June, 2010 and issued by one Dr R.A. Jones of Manchester Mental Health.

The document read in part:

“As far as I am aware, our Team Manager, Emma Hinchcliff, has also contacted the Children and Families Social Services to outline our thoughts that there is no evidence of you suffering with a major mental illness at present.”

Another document by one Mama ‘Toro, an elder in the community, dated February 2011, read that Moniaye had been beaten several times by his wife.

Moniaye told our correspondent that although he had been separated from his wife, he was concerned about the negative impression such incidents were creating for Nigerians.

He said all efforts to get the matter to the attention of the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, had been rebuffed by protocol officers.

I am deeply concerned about the way women are portraying the image of this country to the outside world. And it is unfortunate that the church would be used as a platform for this. My concern is how we can correct this impression,” he added.

After the Manchester church ignored Moniaye’s letter, he wrote the church headquarter in Lagos.

Does it make sense to blame the church for marriage failures???
